How to Use Dessert Hashtags on Instagram

Use geo targeted hashtags to attract locals to your bakery

Include location hashtags

If you are a local business such as a bakery, caterer, or restaurant; you need to make sure that your posts include location hashtags. These should be your city, neighborhood and state. Dominique Ansel doesn’t really need to work so hard at this,  he is pushing one of the world’s most delicious pastry, the cronut. But, he still takes the time to include the #Soho hashtag so that when people are browsing it on Instagram, his scrumptious image has a chance to grab local’s attention.

use related brand and dessert hashtags

Use related brand hashtags (when relevant)

Jacques Torres is one of NYC’s most prominent chocolatiers. As such he collaborates with other brands including Champagne Taittinger. Note how this post uses the #Taittinger hashtag. This is done so that people who are fans of this gorgeous sparkler can be cross marketed to. By using their hashtag, he is reaching out to an audience that may not have been interested in him before.

Use hashtags for different holidays to help your dessert business get more likes

Use Holiday Hashtags

The dessert industry is perfect for the holidays. Make a list of special holidays and be ready to use hashtags related to those holidays when they come around. Carlos’ Bakery uses a single hashtag #easter to increase visibility of their post during the holiday. 145k views tells me this was quite effective for them.

A custom brand hashtag can strenghten your business

Use a custom brand hashtag

Instagram is great for branding. If you teach your customers and audience to use your custom hashtag you can turn them into a marketing army. Check out Krispy Kreme Donuts. They’ve only created about 2,000 pieces of content, but when you check their hashtag there are 1.5 million posts. That’s a ton of people working as marketers for the brand. That’s strong marketing.
