Just thought I would pop in to share a small win to encourage those who are starting off with their business Instagram. Even with a small audience you can potentially expose your page and pictures to a larger audience with the use of hashtags.
Recently I wrote a post on generating Instagram engagement using hashtags and I just wanted to come in and show you all a quick case study of how it actually does work. A few months back I started another Instagram where I spotlighted really stylized post and was hoping to reach small creative businesses and other bloggers. I started this Instagram (@thebloomtheory) with zero followers. With the help of hashtags I was able to gain followers, likes, comments, and clicks to my website.
I posted this picture and added the hashtags in the comments. Within four minutes I had 41 likes. That is HUGE for a small Instagram with less than 150 followers. I was able to expose my page to a ton more people who would not otherwise see my small page. I ended up receiving over one hundred likes and several comments. The coolest thing was the picture actually caught the eye of Caitlin Bacher and she reposted my picture on her @mycreativebiz page. The only way these people found my page was through hashtags and it put me in front of so many more people. Hashtags really are a game changer and I highly recommend you start utilizing them.
