How to Use Hashtags on Twitter and Instagram for Marketing Purposes


In this video, I’ll explain what hashtags are, and how to use them for marketing. (Materials at http://tinyurl.com/zsruc8w). Who invented the #hashtag? Well, it was probably Twitter, but who cares? Hashtags exist on most, if not all, social media networks but especially on Twitter and Instagram. An easy way to think of a hashtag is like a “conversation.” So, for example, you can click on the following and “see” the conversation on Twitter about these topics: #fashion, #california, #dogs, #globalwarming, and #gucci. Similarly, on Instagram, there are hashtags in use such as #chevy, #corvette, and #texas. Think of a hashtag as a “conversation” around the global water cooler, or a “radio show” on your favorite radio station. Even more, you (and everyone else in the world with a Twitter account or an Instagram account) can “chime in” with your thoughts, images, videos, and perspective on these “topics of conversation” or “hashtags.”
