Case Study: Instagram Hashtag Success - 41 likes in 4 minutes

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.

Case Study: Instagram Hashtag Success - 41 likes in 4 minutes - Nakia Jones Creative by Nakia Jones

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.
