Singing is one of the world’s favorite passtimes. Even those of us who are afraid to sing in front of others will belt out the craziest tunes while in the shower. Singing is also great business. The music industry makes somewhere around 15.5 billion dollars per year and is estimated to grow to 18 billion in the next few years. That means that if you are a singer, a music venue, or even a music teacher, there is a huge audience waiting for you. This is especially true when it comes to Instagram. In fact, as of December of 2016, there were 600 million monthly active users on the network. It’s even more impressive when you think that in June of that year they were only at 500 million. That also means that there is a lot of competition for you. The hashtag #signing has been used almost 7 million times as of today. There’s opportunity, but only if you know how to use Instagram properly. A big factor of achieving success on Instagram for your Singing brand is to use singing hashtags and mix them up with others so you can reach the perfect audience; an audience that engages and converts. Today, we’ll discuss these hashtags and how to use them…but before you read on – click copy and save the list of singing hashtags below. These will be the foundation to your Instagram strategy.

Singing Hashtags & How to Use Them

Branded hashtags help your audience amplify your brand

Mix Singing Hashtags with your Custom Business Hashtag

Branding is everything and you want to make sure that you control your brand. A great way to do this is to create a custom hashtag. This is usually simple as most brands choose their name (just like Samantha Fox has done). Make sure you tag your Instagram photos with your custom brand hashtag so that when people search for it on Instagram, part of the message comes directly from you and leads your fans to your account.

How to use Singing Hashtags with other related tags

Include Industry Hashtags

Not all singers are the same. There’s jazz, there’s rock, and there are tons more styles of music. If you want to increase the chances of likes and engagement, then you need to attract a targeted audience. One that is into the type of music you create. So go ahead and get specific here just like Emily Grace did. Note her use of industry hashtags such as #AcousticSinger #FolkSinger. Using these will help her get her videos in front of an audience that loves what she does.

Use city and state hashtags to be seen by a local audience

Don’t Forget Location Tags

If your business or brand is location specific, then you need location tags. Imagine you’re a singing teacher in NYC…views in Miami aren’t as likely to convert as those in your same neighborhood. Same thing if you’re doing a gig in Austin. In order to get in front of a geo-targeted audience, you need to use location tags (city, state, neighborhood) to increase your chances of being discovered by those near you. Singer Giulia Wahn does this quite well.

How to Manage and Grow Instagram Accounts

As mentioned before, these singing hashtags are the foundation for your Instagram strategy. You need a lot more to see an ROI. That includes daily posting, engagement, and keeping your account clean. Use a tool like Socialdraft to help you manage all this. With Socialdraft you can:

Schedule Instagram Posts
Have multiple people work on various accounts

Turtles. These darling reptiles are beloved the world over and are quite popular on Instagram. They’re so popular that there are currently over 3 million posts tagged turtle. That means that your turtle images have the potential to reach a huge audience, but you can’t reach the right audience without using the proper Turtle hashtags.

Your strategy will vary if you are a travel account, an environmentalist account, a tattoo artist…see where I’m getting at? Today, we’ll discuss how to use your turtle hashtags and how to combine them with other types of tags to increase your reach to a targeted audience. Before you read on, take a few seconds to copy the Turtle hashtags below, these will be the foundation for your strategy.

Instagram Turtle Hashtags

How to use Your Instagram Turtle Hashtags

 Location hashtags are great for local businesses

Combine them with Location Hashtags

This is great if your brand or business has anything to do with a location. We chose this example from the Australia Instagram account, but this is a good strategy not just for travel brands,  but local businesses (restaurants, shops, vets). Tourism Australia uses location tags to get in front of people who are interested in particular areas, in this case #queensland and #GreatBarrierReef. They are giving themselves more chances to be discovered by those who are actively looking for information on the area. This is a great Instagram SEO strategy.

Include hashtags that are specific to your business with your turtle hashtags

Mix in Industry Hashtags

 Tattoo artist Lilian Raya is smart about her hashtag use. Here, she uses turtle hashtags to appeal to a wider audience and increase her likes; but she also includes industry hashtags (#tattoo #colortattoo #inked) in order to give herself a chance to be seen by people who convert. People who may be browsing for ideas on a new tattoo. They will be easier to convert than those who merely like turtles, but it is those turtle likes that give her a chance to come up on Top Posts and get more organic views.

Mixing custom brand hashtags with your turtle hashtags will help you build your brand

Use a Custom Brand Hashtag

Custom brand hashtags are a great way to get your audience and customers to act as free marketers for you. Just check out the above example from Petco. While they have only created a little over 2,000 posts, there are over 400,000 posts that are tagged Petco. That means that there are a large amount of people who are being exposed to their brand by current customers. This is an incredibly powerful tactic.

As of early 2017, Instagram has 600 million monthly active users. But what’s relevant to anyone in the music industry, especially those who are in the DJ industry is that 28% of internet users who are between the ages of 18 and 29 use Instagram and that 4% of internet users bet 30-49 do as well. That means that your target audience is on Instagram. The problem? There’s tons of content and competition on Instagram. As of February 2017, there were 18 million posts tagged #DJ. This means you need to be smart about your hashtag use to stand out from the crowd. Before we discuss how to use your DJ hashtags, take a few seconds to copy those hashtags below. They will be the building block to your Instagram strategy.

DJ Hashtags for Instagram

How to use DJ Hashtags for Instagram

A good way to expand your audience is to use hashtags for relevant brands

Combine them with Related Brand Hashtags

DJ Lena Estetica understands the power or related brand hashtags. Although she has a healthy following on Instagram, she still uses hashtags for related brands; for example, venues that she will appear at. By doing this she allows her posts to come up on the feed for these tags and gives herself exposure to a very desirable and related audience which has a higher chance to engage her content…and more importantly, attend her shows.

A custom hashtags will help you convert fans into brand advocates

Make Sure to Include YOUR Branded Hashtag

Every DJ and music related brand should have a custom hashtag. This can be something simple, like your name. The Nature One festival utilizes this exact method #NatureOne.  Note that while they’ve only created 340 pieces of content, the hashtag has been used over 40,000 times. This means that their fan base is so vested in their brand and in being associated with it that they are acting as a marketing army that only makes the brand stronger.

Use geo targeted hashtags to draw in a local audience

Incorporate Location Hashtags

Location hashtags are quite useful if you need to promote a show or venue. Sure, you want your DJ brand to be internationally known, but converting people to see your shows is much easier if they are nearby. Le Shuuk uses location hashtags such as #Stuttgart and #Germany alongside DJ hashtags so that he can come up on the feed for his core follower base in Germany.

Use hashtags for your specific type of music to get in front of the right audience

Use Industry Specific DJ Hashtags

There are many different types of DJ’s, different styles, different industries, different music. While the general music audience may convert, you will have a better chance of getting engagement if you target those closest to your exact industry. If you are a techno, electronica, or dubstep DJ, then you need to mix in a few hashtags for the genre that fits you. If you’re a wedding DJ, then you need to edit your tags to attract the right eyes. The idea is to mix in the general hashtags to get wider reach, and mix in more specific ones to assure engagement and increase the chances of a return on your Instagram investment.

How to Manage and Grow Your DJ Instagram Account

It takes more than just the right hashtag strategy to see a return on investment from Instagram. In order for your account to be effective, you need to consistently manage and care for your account. That means posting daily, engaging your audience, and cleaning up your account.

Sunrises are with us daily. They inspire us, they make us happy, they keep us warm. They are also a great way for you to market yourself on Instagram. Sunrise images can be used by many different types of brands and businesses: sports, travel, fashion, art, coaching, music, photography…the list goes on. If you are going to market your brand or business on Instagram using a sunrise, you’ll need to start with a great set of Sunrise hashtags. However, these alone won’t get you the right audience. They will help you get into top posts…but combining your sunrise hashtags with other types of tags is how you will see an ROI from your Instagram efforts.  Below is your list of the top Instagram Sunrise Hashtags. Copy these and save them so that you can use them on your Instagram posts. Then read on to learn how to properly use these hashtags to get in front of the right audience that converts.

Sunrise Hashtags For Instagram

How to Use Your Sunrise Hashtags

Using Industry hashtags will get your Instagram images in front of those who are more likely to convert

Combine them with Industry Hashtags

Imagine what would have happened if NA-KD Fashion had only used sunrise hashtags in this image. Sure, they may have gotten some likes from people who like sunrises and photography, but who they really need to get in front of people who may buy. By using industry hashtags such as #NYFW they are giving themselves a chance to appear on Instagram search for those who are interested in Fashion Week. This is their core customer and this is smart hashtag use.

Related brand hashtags can help you grow your following

Naomi-Jane Adams of Book on In understands how powerful using another brand’s hashtag can be (when it is related and non-spammy). By using the branded hashtags for the Hilton hotel chain – #ShareMyHiltonPic and #HiltonHotel, her images come up on these searches. This means that an audience who is interested in the Hilton and may be thinking of staying there has a higher chance of clicking over to check out her post where she can convert them. Whenever you post, think of what other brands can have this effect for your images.

Geo Location tags will get you engagement from a local audience that converts

Mix in Location Hashtags

This is a great way to get engagement from both a local audience and people who are interested in a location. Digital Nomad Blanca uses multiple types of location tags to attract people to her travel posts. Notice the tags used in this image go beyond basic location tags like #Colombia & #SantiagoDeCali. She also includes tags such as #SalsaCapitalOfTheWorld and #igersCali to draw all types of people interested in that location.

How to Grow, Schedule & Manage Instagram

You now have a full understanding of the other types of hashtags you need to mix in with your sunrise hashtags. These will put you a step closer to reaching your targeted audience, an audience that converts. However, hashtags alone won’t cut it. You need to post & engage on a consistent basis, manage your followings, and review your performance.  Socialdraft is a Social Media Scheduling tool that will help you manage all these tasks.

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”
― Milan Kundera

Needless to say, humans and dogs have more than a symbiotic relationship. We’ve gone beyond helping each other eat to giving each other warmth, love and care. It is no surprise that the dog industry is big business and that this has translated to over 121,827,000 Instagram posts using the #dog hashtag as of today. What does this mean?

You’ll need to combine these with other types of hashtags in order to get in front of the right audience, an audience that converts.

Using breed hashtags with your dog Instagram posts will get you more exposure on Instagram

Include Breed Hashtags

Sure, using the general dog hashtags above is going to get your image in front of the eyes of dog lovers, but using breed hashtags will get you in front of those who love the particular breed for the pup in your image. That means your post will be seen by people who are super passionate about that pup and that you’ll significantly increase your likes and comments. Check out the above post by Oscar the Frenchie NYC. He uses various types of hashtags (we’ll show more examples of those later), but he always uses breed hashtags so that Frenchie lovers always have a chance to see his posts

#frenchie #frenchbulldog #bouledoguefrancais #bulldog #bulldogfrances #frenchielove #frenchies #frenchbulldogs #frenchiesofig #frenchbulldogsofinstagram #frenchiesofinstagram #instafrenchie #frenchieoftheday #frenchiegram

Industry hashtags will increase conversion on your dog Instagram posts

Include Industry Hashtags

Not all Instagram dog posts on Instagram are made the same. Some are just cuteness all around, others sell dog food, others promote doggy adoption. Whenever you post your dog related image to Instagram, keep your industry and goal in mind. Take the above example. Dr. Evan Antin, a vet in Conejo Valley, did a TV spot to urge people to adopt dogs and to stop going to breeders and pet stores. By using the tags #adoptdontshop and #rescue, he assures that the post will be seen by those who are actively browsing those terms on Instagram. Before you post, ask yourself what terms your target audience, the one who will take the action you desire would look for, and include those in your post.

Local businesses need to use location hashtags such as neighborhood, city and state

Include Location Hashtags

If you are a local brand, business or service provider (like a pet shop, vet, or dog walker) you need to use location hashtags to increase your ROI. Just think about it. Using general, breed, and industry hashtags will get you global eyes, but you need to be seen by people in your area, people who convert. Check out the post above from ps9pets, a Williamsburg, Brooklyn pet shop. Note how they include both #Williamsburg and #Brooklyn in their post. This makes it so whenever someone is looking through those hashtags, they have a chance to be seen. And that means another chance at exposure by someone who could go in and make a purchase.

How to use custom hashtags to get your customers to market your business

Include Custom Brand Hashtags

If your brand or business does not have a custom brand hashtag, you need to create one. They are a fantastic way to get your audience to participate in marketing your brand. Stella & Chewys, a raw dog food company understands perfectly well how to do this. Note that in their profile, they have included a call to action asking their customers to tag their images #StellaAndChewys in order to be featured. By doing this, they get their customers to become brand advocates, and they solve the problem of having to create content. While they have only posted about 200 posts, there are over 4,000 that use their custom hashtag. Pretty smart, right?

You are now fully equipped to get tons of love on those dog Instagram posts. You’ve got an Instagram scheduler that will save you time and help you manage your account, you’ve got your base dog hashtags, and you know how to use them to both get more organic reach AND more likes and comments. If you liked this article, share it so social media…and take Socialdraft for your risk free trial.

 

If you’re in the music industry, you’ll be dealing with guitars at some point. Maybe you’re a guitar store, a music venue, or even a bar and you need to promote your guitar related Instagram posts. The issue is that guitars are popular in the real world and on Instagram. The #guitar hashtag has been used over 16 million times as I write this post. Today, we’ll give you your essential guitar hashtags for Instagram. Then we’ll discuss how you need to use them and how you need to combine them with other hashtags in order to get in front of your ideal audience.  Before we get stared, take a few seconds to copy and save the hashtags below, these will be the basis for your Guitar hashtag strategy on Instagram.

List of Instagram Guitar Hashtags

#Guitar #Guitarist #Instamusic #Instaguitar #Singing #Guitarcover #Guitarvideo #Instacover #Music #Coversong #Acousticguitar #Acousticcover #Electricguitar #Guitarplayer #Guitarra #Guitarporn #Guitarhero #Guitarsolo #Fingerstyle #Chords #Strum #StringInstrument #Guitarrist

How to Use Your Guitar Hashtags for Instagram

Mix associated brand and guitar hashtags to broaden your audience

Mix them up with Brand Hashtags

Phil Wenerson understands just how passionate people are about guitars. Because he understands this passion, he knows that if he uses brand hashtags such as #Fender #Gibson and #LesPaul, he will draw the eyes of their fans to his posts and in turn he will make his audience broader. The trick here is that his posts are relevant to this audience. Keep this in mind when you schedule your guitar Instagram posts and you can gain new targeted eyes.

If you are a local service you need to use city hashtags in your posts

Include Location Hashtags

Local brands, businesses and service providers (like a guitar store, guitar teacher, or a bands to name a few), need to use geo-targeted hashtags. The general guitar hashtags you copied earlier will get you more exposure by people who like guitars, but location hashtags get you seen by people who are more likely to convert. The band Stone Giant understands this. Notice how they not only tag #Brooklyn, the city where they are playing, but also the venue #FreddysBar. Whenever you post, take their example and think about the hashtags that locals will browse on Instagram so that they too can see your posts.

Use industry hashtags to attract hyper targeted views

Don’t Forget Industry Tags

#Guitar and #Guitarist are both very broad hashtags. There are many different parts to the industry, this means that in order to attract people that convert you’ll need to narrow things down. When you do, don’t go too narrow. Let’s dive into what is too narrow and what is not narrow enough.  Take the example above from New York Guitar Academy. Sure they want to attract people who like guitars, but in order for their Instagram efforts to yield and ROI, they need to attract those who are actually looking to learn to play the guitar. They were very smart about this, note their tags #learntoplayguitar and #guitar lessons will get them in front of the eyes that matter, eyes that convert.

Custom hashtags can help you convert customers in to brand advocates

Use Custom Brand Hashtags

If you don’t have a custom hashtag for your brand, you should create one now. Custom hashtags help you measure the interest in your brand, and can also help you convert your customers and audience into marketing groupies. Veritas Guitars understands this quite well.  Note the use of #VeritasGuitars and how the brand has only created 444 pieces of content, yet there are well over 1,000 posts that use their custom hashtag. That means that their audience has so much stock in the brand that they take the time to tag their images with the #VeritasGuitars tag. This is smart marketing.

How to Manage and Grow your Instagram Account

You now understand how to mix your Guitar hashtags with others to get the most reach. Now you need to work your account. That means posting beautiful images daily, using a call to action on your posts, and engaging your targets. This requires help from a great tool like Socialdraft. With Socialdraft, you can:

The love of mankind for horses goes way back, in fact, our society was able to develop because of horses and our ability to ride on horseback. Although we no longer need to ride horses, our symbiotic relationship remains and horses are one of humanity’s most beloved friends. This means that those involved in agribusiness, equine nutrition, racing, veterinary care, and even the arts have a huge pool to market to if their craft is related to horses. However, this means there is a lot of competition as well, especially when marketing on Instagram. For example, the #equine hashtag has been used in over 1.6 million posts, and the #horse hashtag has been used 15 MILLION TIMES! Today, we’ll discuss how to use hashtags to get the most amount of targeted eyes on your horse related Instagram posts. Before you read ahead, take a few seconds to copy and save these top Instagram Horse Hashtags, they will be the building block of your Instagram strategy for your equine posts.

Horse Hashtags for Instagram

#Horse #Instahorses #Horses #Horsesofinstagram #Animals #Horseriding #Myhorse #Horselover #Horsehead #Horselove #Horseoftheday #Farm #Horsestagram #Horsejumping #Horserider #Horsey #Horsegirl #Horselove #Horsephotography #Horseback #HorsebackRiding #Horselovers #Equine

How to Use Your Horse Hashtags for Instagram

 We discussed above how the more general horse hashtags have been used a lot. The issue with these tags is that due to the way Instagram works, your posts will drop quickly down the feed…but you still need to use these to categorize your posts properly. That being said, you need to combine these more general hashtags with other types of hashtags in order to be seen by the right audience, an audience that converts. We’ll discuss the various types of hashtags that you need to use; just remember that when you research the other types of tags, that you should keep them between 5,000 to 500,000 uses. This way you don’t have too small of an audience or too large of an audience. Ok, let’s get down to business.

Use Industry Specific Hashtags

Make use of hashtags that are unique to your industry to get more eyes on your horse Instagram posts

Sure, people interested in horses will probably be interested in your post, but what if you are posting about something very specific to your industry, say trick training? In a case such as this, you need to include hashtags that are related to that part of the industry in order to attract eyeballs from people who are interested in particularly that. They are more likely to leave likes on your posts and to engage them and in turn can get you to the Top Posts for that tag which will get you even more likes. So, when you are about to post, think about what hashtags will attract hyper targeted eyes to really bring up those likes and push you up on the feed. Little Red Cowgirl, Danielle, understands this quite well. Note how her post includes both general horse hashtags and others that are hyper targeted to her audience.

Mix in Branded Hashtags

A custom horse hashtags can help you get more visibility on Instagram

Custom hashtags can be quite effective at getting your customers and audience to become a marketing army. Struck Apparel, a riding apparel brand has begun to use their branded hashtag #StruckApparel on their Instagram posts along with their horse hashtags. As you can see in the example above, customers and celebs are starting to post images of themselves wearing their items. This is a great way to control the conversation and to get your community involved. I would suggest to the brand that they add instructions to their profile write up so that their audience can be trained to use the hashtag more often.

RELATED ARTICLE: How to use branded hashtags effectively.

 Use Location Hashtags

Local brands and businesses need to use city and state hashtags on their horse instagram posts

If you are a local brand, business, or service provider; you increase your chances of conversion by having locals exposed to your posts. The easiest way to do this is first to geo-tag your post, then to use geo-hashtags such as neighborhood, city, state tags so that people who are interested in the city, and most likely in your area can see your post. Artist Whitney Landerson understands the power of location hashtags. The above post includes general horse hashtags (since a horse is the subject of her piece), horse industry hashtags (#kentuckyderby) to appeal to those who are passionate about horses, racing, and the derby; and finally location tags so that she can identify herself as an artist in Seattle.

Use Related Brand Hashtags

Ok, so this really works best when the brand is directly tied to your post, but I decided to use this example because this brandjacking worked perfectly for this brand. Note how Rupa Sutton included the #AnimalPlanet hashtag along with general horse hashtags. This resulted in people who are interested in the very popular animal TV network to be exposed to her post. Since her post is related to animals, she hit her target audience. This post would have been even better if she had been featured on the channel or was sponsored by them. Either way, it worked…so think about the brands that your audience is interested in, and test a few out to see how they increase your reach.

Managing and Growing your Instagram Account

Now that you have your list of horse hashtags and you know how to combine them with others, you’re better prepared to maximize your Instagram posts. However, Instagram recently implemented an algorithm that is based on engagement. Basically, if your posts don’t get likes and comments within a short time of you publishing, you’ll drop in the feed. You’re probably asking yourself “what do I need to do to get more likes and comments on my Instagram posts?”. It’s not too hard, but it is time consuming. You need to post daily (or at least consistently), you need to engage your audience, you need to follow people who may like your images, and you need to keep your account clean. Socialdraft can help you with many of these including:

Scheduling Instagram Posts
Having multiple people work on various accounts
Searching for posts in a particular industry
Liking these posts
Finding people to engage and follow
Cleaning up your Instagram account.

Amazing how much we’re willing to spend on handbags. The Birkin seems cheap at $120,000 when compared to Mouawad’s 1001 Nights Diamond Purse (that one costs $3.8 million). Our obsession with handbags is strong, this means that if you are selling handbags online, your audience is HUGE. Especially so on Instagram where there are over 500 million monthly active users and since it is used by
31% of American women. That also means there’s plenty of competition. The #handbag hashtag has been used over 2 million times on Instagram. That means that you need to mix it up with other types of bag hashtags to actually attract people who convert to your posts. Today, we’ll discuss how to use bag hashtags on Instagram, but first, copy the list of bag hashtags below and save them to your phone. They will be the building block to your Instagram strategy.

Instagram Bag Hashtags

How to Use Instagram Bag Hashtags

Before we actually get to strategy, you need to understand how hashtags work on Instagram. Think of Instagram as Google and your hashtags as keywords. Hashtags are how you will get found by people who do not follow you. People will search Instagram for particular content. You’re going to start with the hashtags above because they are directly related to your industry. However, there is an issue with these…they’re pretty broad, right? This means that you’ll be pushed down the feed very quickly…so you need to use these and combine them with others to get the perfect mix of traffic to your posts. Let’s discuss the proper way to combine your Bag Hashtags with other hashtags to get the right eyes on your Instagram posts.

Associated Brand Hashtags

Use the hashtags for brands used in your bag images to attract their followers and fans

When posting about handbags, your most powerful supporting bag hashtags will be that of related brands. People are super passionate about brands, be it #Fendi #MichaelKors or even #NineWest. Wonderland, a magazine and online shop understands this. By using the relevant hashtag #Fendi, they attract the views of not just those who are interested in handbags, but by people who love Fendi and who in turn can easily convert.

 Use Industry Hashtags

How to mix bag hashtags to get the most out of your Instagram posts

Sure, you can use #handbags and get in front of people browsing Instagram for handbags, but what about the people who are searching for something very specific, for example a clutch bag. They may skip the #bag or #handbag tags and go directly for #clutch…but you need to be careful here. If you check out the hashtag #clutch, you’ll see that it is very broad and includes auto, basketball, and other industries. You may want to narrow this down to a tag like #clutchbag which will narrow down your audience to a super targeted audience. The key here is to combine those broad hashtags like #handbag and #fashion with those that will bring in a very targeted audience that converts. Fashion blogger Shira Rose understands this well, and uses general industry hashtags with hyper targeted industry hashtags to get the most out of her Instagram posts.

 Include Geo-Targeted Hashtags

To be seen by people in your area who can convert, include city, state, and neighborhood hashtags

General bag hashtags are fine if you’re a national retailer, but what if you are a local shop with limited shipping possibilities? If this is you, then you need to always include location hashtags into your Instagram posts such as #neighborhood #city #state #citynickname. This will make it so when people are browsing Instagram for your location, you have a chance to be seen by them. In Blue Handmade is very smart about their location hashtag use. They use both #northcarolina & #asheville to denote their geographic location, but also to denote that they are made in the USA. Such smart social media here.

Use Custom Hashtags

Custom brand hashtags can help you to convert your audience into a marketing army

You gotta use custom brand hashtags. This can be as simple as #yourbrandname. Note how Michael Kors uses #MichaelKorsCollection on all his posts. Although he has only created 3,243 pieces of content, there are over 5,865 Instagram images using his tag. That means that his followers are so invested in his brand that they are willing and happy to push out his content for him. That’s free advertising and it’s awesome.

Whether you love or hate PEOTUS Trump, the 2017 US Presidential Inauguration will be historic. Mostly everyone will be talking about it. Some people will be hosting #MakeAmericaGreatAgain parties while others will be running theirs as #NotMyPresident. Regardless of which side you and your audience fall on, you want the most amount of eyes on your social media post. Today, we’ve put together a list of Inauguration Day Hashtags you can use to achieve just that, getting the most organic views from your targeted audience. So take a few seconds to copy and save these hashtags and then read on so that you can learn exactly how to use them on Instagram.

Inauguration Day Hashtags

#inauguration2017 #inauguration #inaugurationday #constitution #merica #america #USA #UnitedStates #USpresident #donaldtrump #presidenttrump #trump #presidentdonaldtrump #mikepence #pence #makeamericagreatagain #January20 #liberal #conservative #republican #democrat

How to Use Inauguration Day Hashtags

The first thing you need to know is that #InaugurationDay has only been used around 7,000 times on Instagram as of 1/17/16. That means that there’s not an incredible amount of competition and that you can really get a good amount of eyes on your post. In fact, it should be very easy for your post to come up on Top Posts. But before you start to post, let’s talk about how Instagram hashtags work. You need to think of them as Instagram SEO. Hashtags are the way you get found, so in order to be found by your target audience, you must use the right hashtags and combine them with other types of hashtags.

Mix In Hashtags for Your Industry

How to combine Inauguration Day Hashtags with hashtags for your business to be seen by people who can become customers

If you are a business that is not politically active, it may be a good idea to stay neutral. Brodiefur, an account that sells custom socks, was very smart in their 2017 Inauguration Day post. They went with a fairly neutral post that stayed away from politics, and which zeroed in to dog lovers by using industry hashtags such as #happylabpack #TalesofaLab #fab_labs_ #dogsofinstagram #happydog #worldoflabs #labs_of_insta #labradoroftheday and #talesofapuppy. This makes it so their post gets to hijack some traffic on Instagram from the #inauguration day hashtag bringing them both conservatives & liberals who may be interested in purchasing cute socks, AND that they are seen by dog lovers who even if not interested in patriotic socks, may be interested in getting some custom ones made.

Use Location Hashtags

How to get your Inauguration Day Instagram Posts seen by a local audience

If you are a local brand, service, or business (like a restaurant, museum, or dog walker), you need to use geo-location hashtags. Why? Because while it is great to get all those Inauguration Day eyeballs, you need eyeballs that convert. The Rubin museum created a neutral post prompting people to visit the museum on Inauguration Day. They were smart by offering #nyc #chelsea #nycmuseums to give themselves a chance to be seen by people in NYC and Chelsea.

Use Custom Brand & Vertical Brand Hashtags

Custom hashtags can get your audience involved

When you craft your Inauguration day Instagram posts, you will want to use two types of branded hashtags Custom Brand Hashtags & Vertical Brand Hashtags. These are your custom hashtags. Usually, they are your brand or business’ name. Sometimes, as seen above, they can be for a related product such as #wetheresilient. Using this type of hashtags is a great way to market yourself and to get your community involved in helping market you. If I were the Amplifier Foundation, I would have included not just the vertical tag #wetheresilient, but also the tag #AmplifierFoundation with a call to action on the profile teaching people how to use the tag for maximum impact.

Use Party Related Hashtags

Mix party hashtags with your Inauguration day hashtags

The hashtags given above are generic Inauguration Day hashtags. These will give you general exposure to people who are interested in the Inauguration. The issue here is that you need your posts to be seen by your audience, and that requires that you speak their language. If you are on the democratic side, you’ll have to include hashtags to appeal to your audience. Same if you are on the republican side. A good example is how the Conservative Babes account uses party hashtags to attract their target political audience.

How to Manage & Grow Your Instagram Account

You now have a great set of starter Inauguration day hashtags and you know how to combine them with other hashtags. But it takes a lot more than that to be successful on Instagram. You need to be consistent in posting, engaging and managing your account. The Socialdraft Instagram tool will save you time and make you more effective when managing your Instagram account. With Socialdraft, you can:

Schedule Instagram Posts

Search for posts in a particular industry

It’s not just weather forecasters who need to know which rain hashtags to use in Social Media. These hashtags can be used by weather gear companies, retailers, local businesses and more. Just think about it, on a rainy day people are looking for umbrellas to purchase, places to get out of the rain and more. There are even more uses for these rain hashtags, imagine you’re a nature photographer, or a travel blogger on Instagram taking shots in the rain. We’ll discuss strategy for these rain hashtags for each of these industries, but before we do, take a few seconds to click the “copy” button below these rain hashtags. Then save them to your phone’s note pad or use the nifty trick in the video below so you can use them whenever you need.

Rain Hashtags for Instagram

How to use Rain Hashtags on Instagram

As mentioned above, rain can be a great thing for some local businesses. Just imagine that someone’s walking in NYC when it starts to rain. Wouldn’t it be great if when they hopped on Instagram to post their image of rain your post saying that you’re open comes up? Let’s get down to a few examples and best practices on how to use your rain hashtags for Instagram.

Branded Hashtags

Branded hashtags help to create brand advocates

Instagram is “the” place to build your brand. Make sure to think of a hashtag that is unique to you. Begin to use it in all your posts, and begin to train your community to use this hashtag. For example, Hunter boots has been using the hashtag #rainstartsplay on their posts. When you click over to the hashtag, you can see that customers and influencers are sharing pictures of their product with the hashtag. It is fun, inventive and a great way to convert your audience and customers into brand advocates.

Industry Hashtags

If you create posts about rain you must include industry related hashtags

Artist Leonid Afremov understands that rain hashtags alone won’t get him in front of all the possible people who may purchase his works. That’s why he combines rain hashtags such as #umbrella and #rain with #art and #painting. By mixing up both of these types of hashtags he has increased his chances of being seen by people who are interested in both the rain and the arts.

Location Hashtags

Use location hashtags to be seen by people who convert

Digital Marketer Leslie Caswell understands the importance of location hashtags. If you don’t use location tags (neighborhood, city, state, country) your chances of being seen by a local audience are significantly reduced. This means that if you are a local business like a restaurant, a local service provider (like a dog walker), or a brand that wants to be seen by an audience in a particular location that you must include location hashtags with your Instagram posts.

How to Manage and Grow your Instagram Account

Now that you know how to use your rain hashtags and how to combine them with other hashtags to get the most amount of reach, you need to do a few other things. Instagram is not a hit and run kinda network. There is the Instagram algorithm to keep in mind. If you are not active on a consistent basis, and if you aren’t getting engagement from your community, these hashtags will be worth nada. In order to make sure that the time spent on creating these posts is fruitful, you need to make sure that you post consistently and engage consistently. Socialdraft is an Instagram tool that will help you to:

Schedule Instagram Posts
Have multiple people work on various accounts
Search for posts in a particular industry
Like these posts
Find people to engage and follow
