We Americans are a patriotic bunch and National Flag Day is very special to us. On June 14, we celebrate the adoption of our flag, Old Glory. It is a day where we celebrate the symbol of our nation. It is also a day where US businesses and brands can connect with their audience and humanize their brand. Today we’ll discuss how to use Flag Day hashtags in order to achieve this goal, but before we move forward, take a few seconds to copy and save the Flag hashtags below so you can use them before, during, and after the holiday.

How to Use Your Flag Day Hashtags for Instagram
You’re taking a great step now in researching hashtags, but once you’ve got the images, write ups, and hashtags set you need to do a few more things in order to build a committed convertible audience:
Post on Daily
Posting daily (or almost daily) will help to keep you in the eyes of your audience. Once you stop posting, or you take a break, Instagram’s algorithm kicks in and gives you less priority in the feed. This means that your fans will have to search a hashtag longer to find you. If your competitors are on Instagram, then this makes it so they can engage your audience and steal them right under your feet.
Engage your audience
Posting daily (or consistently) is a good start, but now you need to get out there. Instagram is a push and pull. So, push out content and pull in your audience by engaging them. Search for people creating content around your hashtags or industry and take some time to follow them and like their posts. This is a vetting process. Once they have done this, you can move further to engage them in conversation and eventually convert them (be that a website view, a purchase or a content share). The Socialdraft social media calendar tool can help you with all this.
