Instagram is a great social media platform; whether you’re looking to pass the time stalking your favorite celebrities, want to keep up with friends and family, or want to promote your business in front of your target audience, Instagram allows you to do this.
That being said, if you run a business and you don’t have an Instagram presence already, you need to start building one ASAP.
Why? Well, with over 500 million daily active users, your business can’t afford to miss out on the possible opportunities the exposure and engagement on Instagram may create for your company.
Not only is the potential audience on Instagram huge, but studies show that images posted to Instagram get an average of 23% more engagement than they do when posted on Facebook. Furthermore, brands report seeing 10 times more engagement on Instagram than on Facebook. Not only that, but about 80% of Instagram users follow a business on the platform; so if you’re on Instagram cultivating a strong presence, there’s a good chance that users will be following you, helping you grow and develop your business.
As great as Instagram can be for your business, making it work for you is not as simple as opening an account and posting a few times a week; building and running a successful and engaging Instagram account takes hard work, consistency, time, and dedication. Although, there is no reason to be working day in and day out only to achieve slow results. There are a number of tools out there that can help you track analytics, optimize your account, create and schedule posts, etc.
And there’s one Instagram tool in particular that can help you make the most of your efforts, optimizing your profile and helping you better your business’s growth. It also happens to be the number one tool that everyone is talking about: HashtagsForLikes.
What It Does
Hashtags are a big part of Instagram, especially since they added the feature that allows you to search and discover content by hashtag. Using the right hashtags can help you get in front of your target market, advertise, and engage with people who are looking for, and are interested in, your product or service. And using branded hashtags can help you build brand awareness and expand your reach.
However, despite the importance of hashtags, few businesses are able to optimize their hashtag use–and that’s where HashtagsForLikes comes in.
HashtagsForLikes is a tool that helps you make the most of your Instagram account. It optimizes your hashtag usage by helping you find hashtags in your niche that are trending and popular. It sorts through hashtags in categories like photography and art, fitness and sports, fashion and jewelry, social, animals, entertainment, and so much more, and then it lets you know which hashtags are the most popular and driving the most engagement so that you can put them to better use.
On top of that, the tool has a couple of different payment options, including monthly or annually, so that you can pay for the tool all at once or pay as you go, whichever is more conducive to your business’s budget.
Why You Need It
As useful as Instagram can be, it does place a few limitations on businesses that can make it difficult to optimize posts. For example, Instagram does not allow you to place clickable links in posts and only allows one link in your bio. This can make it difficult for customers and potential customers to shop with you directly from the app or to browse the selection of products and/or services that you offer.
Another limitation that Instagram places on its users is the number of hashtags that can be included in one post. Instagram only allows 30 hashtags per photo and although that may seem like plenty, when you’re trying to make the most of your posts, gain visibility, build your brand, and reach your target audience, you need to make the most of the hashtags that you use, whether it be fewer than 30 or the maximum amount possible. With HashtagsForLikes, there’s no guesswork or “good enough.” HashtagsForLikes allows you to be confident that you’re using relevant hashtags that will help you reach your target audience effectively and more quickly than you might otherwise have.
Instagram is a powerful business tool, but without tools like HashtagsForLikes, it can be difficult to optimize your efforts and results–even over long periods of time. If you’re looking to optimize your Instagram account or are just getting your business started on Instagram, then HashtagsForLikes is a tool you may be interested in using.
