The Best Instagram Hashtags To Increase Engagements

After spending all day putting together awesome content for your Instagram profile, you post it to your account with 100% confidence your audience will love them but after hitting submit all you hear is crickets…

I mean after all the hard work you put into your graphics you don’t get why people aren’t liking or following your profile.

So what in the world is going on?

Well first let me commend you for getting started on Instagram & I can assure you that 9 times out of 10 if you are doing the basics right on Instagram such as:

  • having a great profile pic
  • awesome author bio
  • share great content

And you still are not getting traction on Instagram more than likely you just need to add relevant hashtags to your photos in order to attract your ideal audience.

With over 10 billion photo’s shared a day your pics could get lost in the mix of everyone else’s photo’s on Instagram.

You’ve probably heard that the rule of thumb for hashtags is to use 2 hashtags & while this is the case for Twitter it’s a whole nother ball game with Instagram.

In fact, statistics show that people with less than 1000 followers who use 11+ hashtags receive an average of 77.66 interactions. I can also vouch for this data for my Instagram account I’ve personally noticed a dramatic increase in interactions when I add relevant hashtags to my photos. 

Now hashtags won’t make up for bad photography, Instagram hashtags work the best when partnered with good photography and great content. But utilizing targeted hashtags will increase your chances of getting found when someone searches the hashtag inside of Instagram.

How this works is, someone comes to Instagram and enters a relevant Instagram hashtags into the search field.

Like the photo below…

And 1000’s of relevant photo’s utilizing those hashtags pop up and people have the opportunity to like, comment or share.

Before I share the top Instagram hashtags to utilize for your photos, here’s a tip to make sure your photos don’t look spammy. Instead of adding all your hashtags inside the description add them to the Instagram comment section.

This is how you do it:

1). Upload your photo
2). Add the description & post
3). Click the comment section &
add all of your relevant hashtags.

Here’s an example of how to do it below

Yep, It’s That Simple!

Now here’s a list of the top hashtags to utilize for Business, Fitness, Cooking & Beauty Bloggers.

Also, keep in mind Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags per photo.
