What are Hashtags for?

The hashtags you use will have an impact on what type of account and content you post, and will use this to categorise your account to show your content to the correct people!

By using hashtags in your posts, you can reach un-tapped audiences on Instagram who may be interested in your content, product or services.

You can use hashtags on feed posts, story posts and within your Instagram bio. Every post you create can be accompanied by up to 30 hashtags to help your content get discovered.

Hashtag Size:

There are two sections to a hashtag, ‘recent’ & ‘top posts’. To get results, you need to rank in the ‘top posts’ section of a hashtag.

You want to be using hashtags that have a similar 'Average likes' to the average number of likes your receive on your content.

By activating smart filters when making your searches, Flick will automatically remove hashtags that you aren't likely to 'rank' on.

The hashtags you use must be as relevant to your post as possible! You’re more likely to engagements and follows if the new people you're reaching are interested in your content.
