What I love about this holiday is that although it is a German festival, it’s become world famous and replicated across pubs all over the world. Did I mention it’s all about beer? Yup. This holiday is awesome if you’re in F&B. It means that you’ll have tons of marketing opportunities to market your business on social media almost anywhere in the world.

How to Manage & Grow Your Instagram Accounts
Don’t expect your Oktoberfest hashtags to do all the work. Instagram requires more than just beautiful images, a call to action and the perfect hashtags. You need to work your account on a consistent basis in order to have success. That means you need to post daily (or at least consistently). It also means that you need to engage your audience by liking their posts and following people creating content around your industry. The good news is that Socialdraft’s dashboard can help you with all this.
With Socialdraft you can:
Schedule Instagram Posts
Have multiple people work on various accounts
Search for posts in a particular industry and schedule reposts to your connected social networks
How to Use Your Oktoberfest Hashtags
Mix them with Location Hashtags
If you are a local business like a restaurant, hair dresser, or costume shop, then you need to incorporate location hashtags with your Oktoberfest hashtags. Why? This is done so that you can be found by people in your area, people who can convert. Hofbräu Bierhaus NYC does a great job at this. Note their use od #NYCfood #hungryNYC and #midtowneast. If someone hops on Instagram (say a tourist staying at a hotel at Midtown East in order to see what’s going on around the area, this hashtag will increase the chances that they will see the post and hopefully convert.
Use Custom Hashtags
Include a Custom Brand Hashtag
Branded hashtags are an effective way to convert your audience and customers into brand advocates. German beer company Paulaner understands this. Note how they use a few simple to understand hashtags:
#paulaner #paulanermuenchen #paulanerbrauerei #paulanerbrewery
Seeing these hashtags will increase the chances that their customers will share images of their beer with their branding. This is incredibly powerful. Just look at their numbers. Paulaner has created 100 pieces of content, but there are over 231k images using their branded hashtags.

Include Industry Hashtags
Integrating the #dachshund hashtag with Oktoberfest hashtags in this post was genius. Natalie was able to get in front of not just people interested in Oktoberfest, but also dachsund fanatics. This means more likes and comments. When you create your post, keep in mind what else people may be interested in that is seen in the post. This way you can get as many interested people to check out and engage with the post.
