Singing is one of the world’s favorite passtimes. Even those of us who are afraid to sing in front of others will belt out the craziest tunes while in the shower. Singing is also great business. The music industry makes somewhere around 15.5 billion dollars per year and is estimated to grow to 18 billion in the next few years. That means that if you are a singer, a music venue, or even a music teacher, there is a huge audience waiting for you. This is especially true when it comes to Instagram. In fact, as of December of 2016, there were 600 million monthly active users on the network. It’s even more impressive when you think that in June of that year they were only at 500 million. That also means that there is a lot of competition for you. The hashtag #signing has been used almost 7 million times as of today. There’s opportunity, but only if you know how to use Instagram properly. A big factor of achieving success on Instagram for your Singing brand is to use singing hashtags and mix them up with others so you can reach the perfect audience; an audience that engages and converts. Today, we’ll discuss these hashtags and how to use them…but before you read on – click copy and save the list of singing hashtags below. These will be the foundation to your Instagram strategy.

Singing Hashtags & How to Use Them
Mix Singing Hashtags with your Custom Business Hashtag
Branding is everything and you want to make sure that you control your brand. A great way to do this is to create a custom hashtag. This is usually simple as most brands choose their name (just like Samantha Fox has done). Make sure you tag your Instagram photos with your custom brand hashtag so that when people search for it on Instagram, part of the message comes directly from you and leads your fans to your account.
Include Industry Hashtags
Not all singers are the same. There’s jazz, there’s rock, and there are tons more styles of music. If you want to increase the chances of likes and engagement, then you need to attract a targeted audience. One that is into the type of music you create. So go ahead and get specific here just like Emily Grace did. Note her use of industry hashtags such as #AcousticSinger #FolkSinger. Using these will help her get her videos in front of an audience that loves what she does.
Don’t Forget Location Tags
If your business or brand is location specific, then you need location tags. Imagine you’re a singing teacher in NYC…views in Miami aren’t as likely to convert as those in your same neighborhood. Same thing if you’re doing a gig in Austin. In order to get in front of a geo-targeted audience, you need to use location tags (city, state, neighborhood) to increase your chances of being discovered by those near you. Singer Giulia Wahn does this quite well.
