Hashtag Tips for Better Results

Proper #Hashtag etiquette can be hard to discern if you are new to Social Media. We know #Hashtags can help get our message out there, but we need to be aware that there are a few Dos & Donts we should follow. Follow these seemingly simple tips and you will make an enormous difference in how your Social Media Campaigns are perceived and ultimately, your ROI. • Don’t hashtag every word. 1-2 hashtags are usually plenty. • Use relevant hashtags. If it doesn’t add value to your message, don’t use it. Your audience doesn’t want to feel as though they are being spammed. • Use hashtags as a searchable keyword. Use cities, states, specific groups, etc. to narrow down your target audience. For example, #Chicago, #foodies, or #soccermom. • Keep hashtags short and concise. The more specific, the better.
