Social Media Hashtags – Annoying But Effective

social media hashtagsSocial Media Hashtags are the most annoying invention.  Yeah, but they are truly effective. Did you know a social media post with even one hashtag will be 10 time more engaging than without one?  It’s true!!  I have been using Social Media Hashtags for quite some time.  And every single time i have posted on Facebook, or other social media networks there is much more engagement from the hashtags.   Now I am not telling to to go out there and use an insane amount of hashtags in your post, however using 2 even up to 5 hashtags will provide results.

Now let’s discuss what a social media hashtag is.  It is really quite simple.  You can turn a single word or a phrase into a hashtag.  Let’s look at some examples:

OMG  = #OMG       I Love My Job  =  #ILoveMyJob   Seriously   =  #Seriously   Try It   =  #TryIt   Social Media Hashtags  = #SocialMediaHashtags

The amazing thing about Social Media Hashtags is you can make them up, like  #OnlineMarketingIsFun  super easy right?  Your hashtags can even start trending if enough people start using them.

Social Media Hashtags – More Engagement

social media hashtagsThe purpose behind Social Media Hashtags is of course engagement. Let’s take an example.  I posted an image on social media yesterday, actually I posted two.  Once with and one without hashtags.  Why is there so much engagement?  I am so glad you asked that question. First, you will notice hashtags are clickable, so they are a different color.  This is another part of Social Media Hashtags.   The clickable tags have attracted someone in your network.  Therefore, engaging the post.  Pretty cool, right?

The one thing to consider when using Social Media Hashtags is always use an image with it.  This seem to increase engagement even more.

Now before you go out there and start shoving Social Media Hashtags all over the internet, let me give you some online marketing advice.  First, keep it simple.  Also keep it positive.  Negativity on social media sites it the quickest way to attract the “wrong people” to your network. We want to attract high quality people to grow your online business, no matter what type of business you are in.

Again depending on you much text you have in your post, you can use 3-10 Social Media Hashtags.  These are great for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Google+.
