Why Are Hashtags So Important? | Instagram

Instagram has gone through a lot of changes since its initial release in 2010. But through it all, one thing has remained consistent: the importance of Instagram hashtags.

Using relevant, targeted hashtags on your posts and stories is still one of the best ways to get discovered by new audiences on Instagram. And this can translate into more engagement, more followers, and more customers for your business.

If you have a public Instagram account and add a hashtag to a post, that post will be visible on the corresponding hashtag page*.

Note*: It’s basically a directory of all the photos and videos that were tagged with that hashtag.

Since hashtags are used with an intent to discover content, the right hashtags can put you in front of your target audience, even if they haven’t connected with you before.

For example, a food blogger might post a picture of a gorgeous smoothie bowl, and then use the hashtags #superfoods, #cleaneating, and #vegansofig when it’s uploaded to Instagram.

  • When people with private profiles tag posts, they won’t appear publicly on hashtag pages
  • Numbers are allowed in hashtags. However, spaces and special characters, like £ or %, won’t work.
  • You can only add hashtags to your own posts.
  • It’s not possible to tag other people’s photos/videos.
  • You can use up to 30 hashtags on a post and 10 on a story.

How To Find Hashtags Specifically For Your Account?

When used correctly, Instagram hashtags can help you grow your reach, get more engagement, and attract more followers.

In order to be successful with hashtags, you need to be strategic about what hashtags you use and when you use them.

Check out the following ways to finding hashtags for your account:

  • Research Your Audience

Throwing random hashtags at the end of your Instagram posts isn’t going to grow your audience. Instead, find out what hashtags your audience is using and see which ones fit the content that you’re publishing.

Your hashtags should be relevant and contain keywords that your audience is actually searching for.

  • Research Your Competition (If you have one, that is)

While it may not be your intention to compete on those hashtags, you could still end up figuring out what your potential customers are talking about and which hashtags they’re using. And maybe you’ll discover new hashtags to add to your repertoire!

  • Research Industry Leaders

One of the best ways to find relevant hashtags is by following Instagram influencers that have the same (or similar) target audience as you.

Every industry has its respective key influencers. Find out who these people are in your niche and use their posts as inspiration and their account as a benchmark. These people are already well-established with your target audience, so why not learn from the best?

  • Find Related Hashtags

Surveying the landscape of trends that are relevant to your own hashtag is an easy and effective way to grow your community.

We recommend using a variety of hashtags on your posts and stories so your posts can reach different communities. For instance, if you have a bakery in Lahore, you can use #Lahorebakeries to reach those looking specifically for bakeries in Lahore, but also use #bakerslife for those who are interested in your day-to-day life as a baker.

If you’re thinking about creating your own community hashtag, remember that the narrower the scope of the hashtag, the more engaged the users tend to become with your activity. Don’t be afraid to find a niche interest or a topic that you’d like to build an Instagram community around.
