Tip of the day:
To get the most out of your #Instagram account post captivating photos and use #hashtags.
Adding hashtags to your photos is a great way to find new followers and share your photos with more people. Choosing specific tags will help you connect with other like-minded people on Instagram and ensure your photos are grouped with photos carrying the same hashtag.
You want to make it easy for other like-minded #Instagrammers to find you by ensuring your hashtags describe your photo. For example a picture of the beach shouldn’t just be hashtagged #beach. Try #WhiteSands #PinkSands or something more specific.
Keeping your hashtags relevant will help you attract new followers who will take a genuine interest in your photos and continue liking and commenting on your photos over time.
Also, pay attention to the other hashtags used on photos that use the same hashtag as yours. You may find that a popular hashtag you hadn’t thought of on your own. This again will make your photo more searchable and seen by more users.
You may also find that people sharing photos similar to yours are using even more specialized tags that you hadn’t thought of originally. This is the opportunity to follow those people and hopefully they will follow back.
So in essence if you are using instgram, you should be using hastags to increase your reach.
