Instagram Hashtags For Your Business

Using hashtags specific to your business is hands down the BEST way to receive visibility on your Instagram account. Think of hashtags on Instagram in terms of keywords you would use on Google search. Search for tags that are specific to what you do and what your customers will be searching for. The more precise your word choices the greater the chance you’ll find customers who are relevant to your business. To put it simply: no hashtags = can’t be found by new people = your Instagram growth stays stagnant.

I've compiled some hashtags from different types of small businesses to give you ideas. Keep in mind that you’re the expert at your business so if you think of better hashtags, try them out. Remember to always search for a hashtags before using it, as some hashtags that seem relevant may be used in a manner that’s not consistent with your business.
