Are you one of those kids striving to gain popularity? Popularity is a necessary thing for any teen. If you are not a school basketball player, local band’s guitarist or part of the cheerleading team, you still have a chance to catch up with more famous classmates.
And the best way to do so is by spreading your social network influence. Social networks like FaceBook, Twitter, or Instagram are all powerful tools to manipulating people and make them admire you.
These channels help to uncover your talent and earn you a deserved appraisal. Hashtags are equally useful for people engaged in business and modern students. Anyway, the same top hashtags work for attracting both business audience and new friends.
Are you waiting with the bated breath to hear these five words, five most effective hashtag of all time? Well, off we go!
1) #love (who doubted?)
2) #instagood (which makes us think about the growing popularity of Instagram as opposed to other social networks)
3) #me (right, it’s all about YOU!)
5) #follow (despite forbidden on FaceBook)
It is true so far that each of these was mentioned in more than 250,000,000 posts!
Now, STOP right over here and think it over. Some of the hashtags are suitable whenever you need to grow your audience while others are aimed to raise your popularity. Popular hashtags are enough in case you need only new followers and admirers. But if you decided to promote something (own music band, outdoor activity, charity fund, service), you have to take into account that popular hashtags alone don't let you spread. Sooner or later, you will simply get lost in the ocean of social. It is logical that searching for your post on the social network is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Users have a long-term access only to those posts which are in 250,000 mln.
If you are still not covering the basics of SEO (search engine optimization) within your IT or Computer Science class, we highly recommend you to do so. Or sign up for some online courses – it will help you further in your life. Look for the right mix of volume and competition. To explain to you what I mean, think about what you would like to hear or read: beach or beaches? You’ve got it right if you chose #beach (72,000,000+ posts). #beaches hardly has a million. Targeting hashtag with enough volume to indicate particular interest or hobby. By doing so, you can set a competition among your followers and friends. Mind that the hashtags can be only relevant and 100% original when speaking about own small business.
Where Should I Look for?
The best places for finding the most relevant and up-to-date hashtags are passionate, niche communities (pages and groups). It was observed that you could even increase the number of likes for your image legally. By adding appropriate and most searched hashtags, you have a chance to raise the number of photo likes by 43%! Be aware: you cannot put hashtag #lovely kitten if the pic represents your drunk party with friends. You can get banned for placing irrelevant content.
Meaningfully infiltrate the feeds of your target audience and relevant hashtags. Make sure to use authentic pictures – it will allow converting users’ focus into CTA (call to action). Scared that FaceBook may ban your post that contains “like”, “share”, or other forbidden commands? Simply try searching for the ways to overcome its strict policies with the help of correct tagging.
Remember: hashtags are the first stage in attracting attention on social networks. Also, taste how easy it is to stimulate engagement with images. It’s all about visualization, especially when talking about students. Twitter statistics impress: it is said that tweets with corresponding images receive 313% more engagement. All the efficient images can’t feel vague, spammy, or like overused stock photographs. Pay special attention while picking the most suitable pic for your post or especially ad or offer. Apply only that sort of images which belongs in your audience feeds of user-generated content. Besides, authentic pictures are the best tools to convert traffic from growth hashtags.
