TOP TIPS FOR USING HASHTAGS EFFECTIVELY
As with anything, hashtags can be great if you use it right. Effective use increases higher engagement and more comments per photo, but it can also look distracting if it’s used wrong. Here are some tips to hit the sweet spot.

  •  Use 1-2 hashtags in the caption. But remember these should be relevant hashtags ONLY.
  • Leave additional hashtags in the comment section below. I always add more comments after the few I include in the caption. This way you get more exposure for your photos, and it’s less distracting to your followers.
  • Save your hashtags in the notes section. Because I typically use different #hashtags when I post ootd’s and when I post travel photos, I save all hashtags by categories in my notes on my phone. So whenever I post a certain category photo, I’ll just look up that category of hashtags in my note section. Saves so much time typing up #’s.
  • Hashtag maximum. Instagram limits the use of #’s to 30 per photo. I don’t know if all 30 are necessary, but I tend to use close to that number.
  • Location/event specific hashtags. When I stay at a hotel, eat at a restaurant or attend an event, I always look for destination and event specific hashtags. Using these hashtags may land you on the tip posts for those #hashtags and will probably send a few new followers your way.
  • Relevancy. Posting with relevant #’s might just land you on the top posts for that hashtags which mean thousands/millions of eyes on your profile.

    Pro tip: Try to change up the #’s you use, to figure out which ones perform the best for you. If you have a certain set of hashtags saved in your notes section and some of them never give you any results, just ditch them and include some new ones.
