How to Make the Most of Your Social Media Content Using Hashtags
You may have used hashtags in your previous social media campaigns with little or no success. That doesn't mean hashtags are not effective as there are several ways of using them and you will still achieve successful campaigns.
The key to getting the most out of your social media content is in the use of relevant hashtags. By doing this, you'll be able to inspire your social media followers into liking, commenting, and sharing your social media posts.
If you want better results with your social media campaigns, then I suggest you consider deeply the nuggets shared in this guide.
Let's get right into our post with a brief overview of what a hashtag is all about.
A hashtag is basically a hash or pound symbol which is also referred to as Octothorpe. It was a Twitter employee, Chris Messina who, in 2007, revolutionized the hashtag into what it is today.
The plan was to use hashtags in grouping all related tweets and Twitter topics together. This gave a hashtag the power to expose a single tweet to hundreds, thousands, and even millions of Twitter users.
It became so successful that other social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook quickly adopted its usage.
Hashtags enable social users to share topics on anything of interest - friend's party, family reunion, or online marketing campaigns.
These hashtag attributes have made it easy for brands to connect with their audience, share vital updates, and engage them. It's a great tool for starting up and driving conversations around any brand, topic, or event.
As easy as it seems to create hashtags, it doesn't look like most brands have been able to tap into the rich benefits of the pound symbol.
