What is A #Hashtag?

Hashtags-graphic“A hashtag is a keyword or phrase preceded by the hash symbol (#), that people include in their social media posts. Essentially, it makes the content of your post accessible to all people with similar interests, even if they’re not your followers or fans.” If you’re like me, this whole hashtag thing just seemed like more work when it first started. But in reality, it’s meant to make it easier for people to find what they are looking for – hopefully that is you and your service or product. When you add hashtags to your social media, your posts are now accessible to anyone looking for that topic, subject, or item that is identified by the hashtag: #hinesville is a viable hashtag for our area. So is #shoplocal, #smallbusiness, #coldweatherblues… Many social media outlets help by identifying for you the most searched hashtags related to your business. Learning to use hashtags can be a huge asset to helping customers find you on the web.
