To hike up the engagement on the post it’s not only important to use relevant hashtags but also use the trending hashtags used by your audience and competitors.

Here’s the Secret Recipe of How I Doubled My Instagram Reach With Hashtag!

1. FIND OUT WHAT HASHTAGS YOUR AUDIENCE IS USING

Throwing just random hashtags at the end of your post won’t give you any engagement to your post! Look for the hashtags what your audience is using and whether it is relevant to your content or not and it should appear into the ‘keyword’ search bar for more reach and engagement. Go to your niche pages and check what hashtag they use, then try them over your page see the results.

2. HOW TO USE CORRECT HASHTAGS

People tend to use hashtags which are more popular and with millions of posts! BUT sorry to say this using those types of hashtags in more number of posts means high engagement only for those who have a high number of followers, but low engagement for pages below 10k followers, because there are hundreds of people using same hashtags in every minute, means it lowers your post reach and rank.

So what should I do? What hashtags should I use to increase my reach? Try using from lower to highly popular hashtags, if you want to get ranked into it!

Well for starters, if you have less than 10k followers use about 20-22 hashtags for increasing IG Growth, which is 10 hashtags with 30k-100k posts, 10 hashtags with 100k-1000k posts and 2-4 hashtags with millions of posts.
