The 3 types of hashtags you need to know to grow your Instagram profile

Hashtags simply are 3 types

  1. Branded #adidas #ameeralba
  2. Trending #MtlFall #conadaelections
  3. Descriptive #hashtagstips #instagramtips

Now, when you post you should include some of each type. You can include up to 30 in your Instagram post.

This is the best way to think about it!

Brands -> Trends -> Descriptions

ProTip

Have 3 sets of hashtags that you save!

  1. Your branded hashtags should have a Shortcut on your keyboard!
  2. You have to think about the trending hashtags at the moment you post
  3. Descriptive hahatags should be created according to the image. Content, colors, mode as well as style.

Here is my podcast about using hashtags for local growth
