Hashtags for people using social media
Everyone has something to share free or sell. A product or information. When you type words of information on Social Media such as Facebook, Twitter, And Instagram you can use hashtags. The symbol # on your keyboard.
A hashtag is a kind of tagging on social media sites that makes it easier for others to find you or similar information you are posting.
You might have seen the message asking you to tag your friend on Facebook on a particular occasion or on a specific topic such as a birthday.
That means you write # hash mark like #familybirthday and tag your family members so that everyone can see the same conversations and share moments among them.
If you are a businessman, use hashtags as they increase your social media presence. Including a hashtag with your posts helps to categorize your content for your specific audience.
Let’s understand this better from a user point of view. I am an information seeker and I am searching on the internet for things which interest me. While searching.
I would ask search engines with #hashtags to allow me to find posts that are relevant to my interests and interact with other social media users who share my interests by joining the conversation.
If I am searching for handy foods at home such as garlic. I would search as benefits of #garlic
If I am searching for Best Investments By Tycoons In 2020. I would search for as best #investments2020.
As you can see that the hashtag content is viewable by anyone who has a similar interest as mine such as garlic and investment for the business.
If you are a businessman, hashtags can help you build a brand for your product by quickly engaging with targeted customers and joining the conversation about what’s trending.
With great visibility you are more likely to create a larger audience, exponentially increasing the chances of fresh leads for your business.
Hashtags For Bloggers
Hashtags works. it is an effective way to get more eyes on your posts. A post that has at least one hashtag attains 15 to 20% more engagement as compared to one without a hashtag.
I use #Hashtags for several reasons:
#Hashtags help me and others who are interested in the same things, find and post common content. #Seafood for fish and lobster topics #RobloxPiggy for popular Roblox game etc. I think you got an idea.
I saw a friend of mine, trying to raise funds by targeting crowd funders on Twitter and he said the words kick start and crowdfunding in his tweet but did not #Hashtag it.
The tweet would have been engaging more if he said #CrowdFunding and #KickStart.
#Hashtags help me find the information I need. If I am looking for services or specific information I will search #Hashtags.
If I am looking for a video editor or a music piece for a job I will search for #Hashtags that are relevant to what I need #Music #VideoEditor and then browse posts.
If you need to ask a specific question from a specific knowledge base you can ask a question with a #Hashtag and all the “experts” can answer you back, you compile the information and digest it.
I use these rules for #Hashtags
No more than two #Hashtags per message or it gets too hard to read. Keep it relevant No spamming Don’t hijack a #Hashtag make one. All the best.
