Instagram Hashtags for Direct Sales and Small Business
I'm working on a project and started creating a hashtag bank for using on Instagram posts. I've written before about using hashtags and Instagram for your direct sales or small business – so you can go check out that post if you want to now how hashtags help you grow your following.
Below you will find my Hashtag Bank with collections of hashtags for various categories that relate to direct sales (and small) businesses and bloggers. It's a dynamic list so I'll be adding regularly to it. If you click on the category a drop down list of hashtags that are popular will open up.
How many Hashtags?
Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags on a post. Social Media statistics indicate that posts with at least 10-13 hashtags perform the best. Choose hashtags that are relevant to your business and target market.
More Instagram Tips
I have some more posts on how to use Instagram including this awesome shortcut, how to use Instagram Stories, How to up your engagement on Instagram and finally awesome apps you can use for Instagram.
Have no clue and want to learn more about using Instagram?
There are a ton of courses available these days on how to use Instagram (and I've done a few). The one I got the most out of and hands down was the best value for money was the Suite Success with Instagram Course. (Heads up that's an affiliate link).
The course was originally designed for direct sales but all of the information applies to any small business or blogger using Instagram. Not to mention it is by far the most affordable course on Instagram that I've found!
If you are in direct sales then you must check out this Facebook group #ThinkSocial-Instagram. Desiree runs regular Instagram challenges and has some great trainings to help you maximise your impact on Instagram.
My plan is to keep adding to the hashtag bank – and I would love it if you want to share some of your favorite hashtags that I could add to the list. If you want to comment below I'll update the list so that everyone benefits.
Here's to your success,
