How to use Sea Hashtags Hashtags
Start with your Brand’s Hashtags
Because Instagram is a user-generated content social network, it is ripe to help you convert your audience into free marketers for your brand or business. Start by creating a branded hashtag.

The Bahamas‘ Instagram manager understands how powerful this technique is. They include their branded Bahamas hashtag in their profile write up with a call-to-action.

That’s a great way to increase your reach and let your audience and fan base do the work. A fantastic example of Instagram marketing here.
