🏃‍♂️It’s a marathon, not a sprint! 

You've already covered the first couple of miles by understanding the importance of hashtags on Instagram and signing up to Flick! Don't worry if it still feels like there's a little way to go!

🗓 Develop your strategy over time

Start but using a few different types of hashtags, and work on it over time!

🥇 Your aim with hashtags is to rank highly.

This is based on a number of factors that you can analyze, from how competitive a hashtag is, to how related a hashtag is to your content or account niche. 

  • Bonus Tip: Activate Flick's personalised 'suggested filters' when you're searching! and it'll handle the number-work for you! 

🎯 Post in groups that make the most sense with the content you produce.

Don’t just pick random hashtags you think might be popular, but may not help propel your account.

♻️ Don’t use the same hashtags over and over again.

You might get penalized! Switch up your hashtag sets as often as you can.

📸 Marry your hashtag strategy with a killer content strategy

Our blog has a lot of tips on how to up your Instagram game, not just when it comes to hashtags. Develop a rounded strategy and see your account grow in an organic way.

🧠 Leverage the different types of hashtag to your advantage.

Learn more about the different types of hashtags in our Complete Guide to Instagram Hashtags.

📊 You can see what’s working.

By looking at your hashtag analytics, you can see which groups of hashtags worked the best for your posts, and use this going forward.

🕵️‍♀️ The best hashtags for you, are not the best hashtags for everyone else.

As we’ve said before, there isn’t a set group of hashtags that help people perform well – it’s completely dependant on your account.
