Hashtags can be one of the most powerful ways to take part in the wider digital community on Social Media.
Knowing how to use hashtags is an invaluable skill when you’re on the road to success. The increase in engagements on tweets with hashtags has been measured to be between +50% and +100%. (This statistic covers all posts with tags, even bad ones. You could do even better with the right tags!)
So how do you know what the right ones are?
Here at Flat Rate Social Media, we have come up with a handy time-saving tool so you can make sure the hashtags you’re using are acting as a multiplier of your work to increase exposure.
When you’re scheduling a new post into your Free Social Media Dashboard, click ‘hashtag’ above your message field.
This allows you to search your hashtag and we’ll tell you if it’s a winner by using our green light system. Alternatively you can find a list of your recently used hashtags and see your top 5 most successful ones.
