Do you need Instagram hashtags for growth?
What is a good Instagram strategy ?
How to find the best Instagram hashtags that you can use?
First of all, so you need Instagram hashtags in your niche ?
You might be looking at some Instagram accounts in your niche and you might be seeing they are not using any instagram hashtags.
So you might be thinking to yourself, if they are not using any Instagram hashtags and they are growing and we are in the same niche, I don’t need those Instagram hashtags too.
Here is the game plan. I am handing you my play book and I will tell you how the Instagram algorithm works.
First you post a piece of content no matter if it is a photo or a video. It gets distributed and you start gaining some home reach. This means it is being distributed to your followers. If your followers are engaging well with your content you start ranking on your hashtags and location and then you can actually rank on the explore page.
If you are trying to go upstairs and you are skipping a few steps. You step, skip to, step.
What’s gonna happen? You might go down. Which is pretty much the same when it comes to Instagram reach.
If you are using hashtags you can get more exposure, more likes, from that traffic source in order to have better odds of ranking on the explore page.
To increase the likelihood of gaining as much reach as possible that can result in getting followers.
What is a good Instagram hashtag strategy?
One when you rank and increase your reach. And when it comes to that numbers do not lie.
So if you are already using some hashtags and you come to the realisation that some hashtags that you are already using are working really well for you make sure you have them saved, so you can reuse them once every one or two weeks depending on your niche and the amount of content you post per day or per week. Obviously as we said, a good hashtag is one that you can rank for. A good hashtag that might work for a big influencer doesn’t mean that is not a good hashtag for a smaller influencer.
So a good hashtag should be filtered by some metrics.
What are the two metrics that you will use?
Likes and overall number of posts pee hashtag.
Average likes in the hashtag.
How do you find the best Instagram hashtags to use?
One is using the Instagram app.
You just type in a hashtag and choose not the most usable hashtag on the platform of this word but the one which has less rank. You will have a better chance to rank there.
A better way for me is using a third party app.
Like Flick. You can filter the hashtags and choose the ones with medium competition.
On the other hand, if you don’t know what to do. You can’t figure out how many posts do you want,, the average amount of likes, any of that.
You can click the filter again but now click on the option : „ Configure Flick to get suggested filters“.
And when you sign in, it automatically chooses the right settings for you.
