How to Use Veteran’s Day Hashtags
Mix in Location Tags
CBS News is very tactful about their posts for Veteran’s Day. They use this day to tell the stories of Vets and honor their sacrifice. On this post, they not only used Veteran’s Day hashtags, but they included a location hashtag #Washington. It is both relevant to the post, and will help the post get exposure to a local audience.
Use Related Hashtags
The American History Museum combined Veteran’s Day Hashtags with hashtags related to their industry; art and history. They included #AmericanArt #AmericanHistory #MilitaryHistory #MilitaryArt #WorldWarI #WW1which will give them more reach with people who are interested in those particular topics.
Use Custom Hashtags
Not all brands and businesses will be able to do what the Giants did here. The Giants were able to brand their Veteran’s day post both on the image and on the write up because their branding is constantly patriotic. Their uniforms are red, white and blue, and they are always pushing their patriotic spirit during games. If your brand is able to follow suit, keep the post simple. By using the hashtag #Giants in the write up, the football team allows their fans, those who are actively searching for their name on Instagram to see that they care about the armed forces.
