How to use Rain Hashtags on Instagram

As mentioned above, rain can be a great thing for some local businesses. Just imagine that someone’s walking in NYC when it starts to rain. Wouldn’t it be great if when they hopped on Instagram to post their image of rain your post saying that you’re open comes up? Let’s get down to a few examples and best practices on how to use your rain hashtags for Instagram.

Branded Hashtags

Branded hashtags help to create brand advocates

Instagram is “the” place to build your brand. Make sure to think of a hashtag that is unique to you. Begin to use it in all your posts, and begin to train your community to use this hashtag. For example, Hunter boots has been using the hashtag #rainstartsplay on their posts. When you click over to the hashtag, you can see that customers and influencers are sharing pictures of their product with the hashtag. It is fun, inventive and a great way to convert your audience and customers into brand advocates.

Industry Hashtags

If you create posts about rain you must include industry related hashtags

Artist Leonid Afremov understands that rain hashtags alone won’t get him in front of all the possible people who may purchase his works. That’s why he combines rain hashtags such as #umbrella and #rain with #art and #painting. By mixing up both of these types of hashtags he has increased his chances of being seen by people who are interested in both the rain and the arts.

Location Hashtags

Use location hashtags to be seen by people who convert

Digital Marketer Leslie Caswell understands the importance of location hashtags. If you don’t use location tags (neighborhood, city, state, country) your chances of being seen by a local audience are significantly reduced. This means that if you are a local business like a restaurant, a local service provider (like a dog walker), or a brand that wants to be seen by an audience in a particular location that you must include location hashtags with your Instagram posts.

How to Manage and Grow your Instagram Account


Now that you know how to use your rain hashtags and how to combine them with other hashtags to get the most amount of reach, you need to do a few other things. Instagram is not a hit and run kinda network. There is the Instagram algorithm to keep in mind. If you are not active on a consistent basis, and if you aren’t getting engagement from your community, these hashtags will be worth nada. In order to make sure that the time spent on creating these posts is fruitful, you need to make sure that you post consistently and engage consistently.
