When you create more visibility, you create opportunities for other people to find you and join in your conversations.
There are multiple points of view on how many hashtags is too many, or whether they are effective at all. Best practice is to take a test and see approach. What hashtags are you using that get engagement? Keep using those! If they aren’t increasing engagement, reevaluate.
Someone told me recently they didn’t have time to measure to see what’s working or what’s not. I would argue you don’t have time to NOT!
This isn’t about Random Acts of Marketing, but rather forming a systematic and strategic plan that works for you and your business. When you have that, it’s easier to hire help in this area.
Bonus note: Please don’t share your Instagram posts automatically to Facebook. The language on each platform is different and hashtags tend to not be as effective. Again, this can be a test and see to make sure this is true for you.
