If you've been struggling with hashtags on Instagram for a long time this article is for you. A huge amount of SMM experts usually get complaint "HASHTAGS DON'T WORK ON INSTAGRAM ANYMORE IN 2020" a lot, people telling us they can’t get any reach or impressions from hashtags.
Hashtags still are one of the BEST ways to get exposure on your account, especially if your account is small (less than 10 000 Instagram followers). Moreover, there are a lot of cases when you can in the top hashtags page and get 1 million impressions from just hashtags racking up more than 71k Likes on a single photo with only about 30k Followers!
Step-by-step guide to find your Instagram hashtags
So how do you do that ? Start with sourcing for hashtags you can actually rank in (that’s key), that are niche specific and where your content looks like it would fit in with 10k to 200k post counts.
- Make your first 10 hashtags between the range of 10-100k post counts.
- Second 10 hashtags 100k to 1million post counts.
- Last 10 tags with 1+ million posts.
The last set is key picking tags you would never think you would rank in (like #beautiful or #adventure). If you hit these hashtags correctly, your post can go massively viral and collect as many as the one shown below, over 1 million impressions just from hashtags.
Becoming viral in small hashtags can boost your positions on large Instagram hashtags.
