Are you making use of social media for your business or brand, and want to know what you should be doing in 2021 in order to make the most out of it? Are you new to social media and want to know how to use hashtags effectively and efficiently in order to get the most out of them?

Hashtags are an incredible tool that just about every single social media platform offers to all of their users. However, these hashtags seem to be incredibly misused and underrated, especially when it comes to businesses and brands trying to make their way in the social media world. Hashtags allow you to reach an incredibly large audience that falls part of your niche and target audience.

The social media industry has become incredibly popular for not just individuals but also for businesses and brands as a way to promote themselves. When it comes to marketing, there are too many different ways you can go about making use of hashtags. There are even tools like TaskAnt that generate hashtags for you, such as a photography business looking for photography hashtags, TaskAnt would suggest the most popular and frequently engaged with. If you want to know how you should be making better use of hashtags, here is everything you need to do.

During events
A lot of people tend to think that hashtags are purely reserved for just your own content and sharing your own content for others to see. However, hashtags are actually an incredibly versatile tool, which actually allows you to share hashtags for a multitude of things. One of the best things about hashtags is that you can use them to encourage user-generated content.

User generated content is essentially when users will promote your business or brand for you without much effort from your side. One of the best ways to do this is by making a hashtag for an event. Say, for instance, you are sponsoring an event, you could create a hashtag that people could make use of when they want to share their photos, and even give them incentive to use the hashtags, like various different prizes. Having hashtags for events, allows for a collection of photos or posts from a specific place all to be compiled into one area.

Follow the trends
Just like every other part of social media, hashtags go through phases, especially the trending hashtags, and it is all based on what is popular at the time. In 2021, there are bound to be a whole load of new trending hashtags, which follow new or popular events, topics in the news, or even fun challenges or viral videos.

It is important to make use of the trending hashtags in order to reach a larger audience. However, you should also note that trending hashtags do not stay trending forever, and they are constantly changing. If you are going to make use of trending hashtags for your content to be seen, you should make sure that they are still relevant and the topic of conversation.

Stay true
When it comes to posting your content with hashtags, one thing that many people tend to do is just go for the most popular hashtags they can find and think that this will be the best way to reach the most people possible. While in theory this might work, in practice, you will quickly discover that this isn’t the best way to go about it.
When posting hashtags so that you can reach your target audience, you should always make sure to only use hashtags that are related to your content. By doing this, not only will you reach a much larger audience, but you will also ensure that your engagement is higher by targeting your niche audience.

Chase the brands
One of the best uses of hashtags is to promote your brand. You can create a hashtag that is specifically designed to be used by your brand and people who are talking about your brand. This could be something that is either related to your brand, or even the name of your brands. One of the best parts of making use of hashtags like these is that, even though they aren’t necessarily popular, you can track some of the engagement that you are receiving, as well as give people a place to see all the posts related to your brand in one convenient place.
