One of the questions I get asked all of the time is "How Do I Find the Right Hashtags to Use?".
The first thing you need to do is search for your hashtags. Go to the search icon in Instagram and start typing in a word that you think might be a good hashtag. For example, if I type in #coastal, this is what pops up:
Instagram makes it easy as they instantly start making suggestions for you. Start by thinking of some keywords relevant to your art business. Or better yet, find hashtags that are relevant to your potential customers. You want to find hashtags your target audience would likely search for and use on their own. If you sell landscape art, what hashtags do you think your customers would use if they were looking for art?
Next I typed in #coastalart. Here is what I found.
As you can see, Instagram can help me find more hashtags to use.
There are also some hashtag tools on the internet you can use to find which hashtags pertain to your art business. Go to hashtagify.me and type in a hashtag you think might work for your business. Hashtagify.me will then suggest other hashtags relevant to your search. Each of the suggestions can also be clicked to identify even more suggestions. I love this!
