How to Use Friendship Day Hashtags
Mix them with Your Custom Hashtag
Using a custom hashtag can have huge benefits to your brand. Just take a look at the Wet and Wild account. Their profile includes instructions to their audience: “Use #wetnwildbeauty to be featured.” If you check out their account, you will also see that they have only created 1,904 pieces of content but there are over 100,000 posts using their hashtag. That means that their audience is taking the time not just to post about them, but to follow their instructions and use their hashtag. This means that there are over 100,000 pieces of content created by others helping the brand market itself. Pretty powerful, right? They combined this tag with the #FriendshipDay hashtag and a super relevant post for a wonderful result. Thinking about creating a custom tag?

Include Industry Hashtags
Lingerie website Lingeriely knows that it takes more than Friendship Day Hashtags to get people to convert. Notice how they included #LuxuryLingerie as a hashtag. This makes it so their post has a higher chance of being seen by people to convert. When you post, think about your end goal and your industry and add hashtags that could be of interest to your target audience.
Use Location Hashtags
If you are a local brand, business, or service; you must include location hashtags. These will make it so your chance of being seen by a local clientele increases. Note the post above, they used the county, city and a landmark.
How to Manage & Grow Your Instagram Accounts
You’re now fully equipped with your Friendship Day hashtags and you know how to mix them with other types of hashtags. You have more work to do. Instagram recently implemented an algorithm that renders hashtags ineffective unless you get engagement.
