How to use Puppy Hashtags Hashtags
Begin with your Brand’s Custom 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. It should be short, simple, and as close to your brand’s name as possible. Then, include it in your profile write-up with a call-to-action to train your customers and audience to use the tag. Kong (the best dog toy out there) understands the power of branding. They include their preferred brand hashtag in their profile with a call-to-action. As you can see from the numbers above, their audience listens and spreads the word for them. This is about as powerful as hashtags can be.
Include Industry Hashtags
If you want conversions, then using only using puppy hashtags won’t get you where you need. You need to combine them with hashtags for your industry so that you increase your chances of being discovered by those who are looking particularly for what you have to offer. Anita Wright knows that the puppy space is broad. In order to really hone in on her target audience (people who need a puppy trainer), she includes hashtags that will increase the chances that she be discovered by them.
Don’t Forget Location Hashtags
This is a MUST if you are a local brand, service, or business. Make sure to include hashtags for your neighborhood, city, state or country so you have a chance to reach both tourists and locals looking for your business or services. Korean K9 Rescue adopts dogs out in NYC and the surrounding area. Note how they use New York hashtags? This is a great way to reach a local audience that may be interested in adopting a puppy. Great marketing, great cause.
