My last post about hashtags did rather well so I decided to post a hashtag guide, some Instagram hacks and a GIANT freebie!
More hashtags? Okay!
#thehappynowThis kinda inspired #thehappygrams! This one is created by the @happyhunters.
#pursueprettyTalk about pretty! I enjoy scrolling through this hashtag to get inspiration.
#theeverygirlI LOVE this one! I use it for #selfies mainly. It’s by the @everygirl_
Here are some hacks:1. Hashtag shortcut-create a keyboard shortcut for all your hashtags-Seriously it saves a lot of time and you don’t have to go back and forth between your notes.
2. Unsend photos- did you send something wrong? Simply press on the image till an “unsend” option appears. No sweat.
3. Connect your Instagram to your Pinterest for more engagement- ok, so I just did this one (thank you ifttt.com) so I haven’t seen a huge spike in engagement, but I have seen a bump!
And some tips:If you’re part of some pods TURN ON YOUR NOTIFICATIONS! I’m sorry if you hate notifications or whatever, but when someone asks for people that are active to join their pod- be active. It’s so rude to join then just drop off the face of the earth.
Add linktree to your bio. I know a lot of you already know this, but linktree is a service that lets you add multiple links to your Insta bio!
Find your optimal engagement time with either UNUM or Instagram analytics! UNUM is an app that allows you to plan your feed several posts in advance (download it!).
- With UNUM- at the bottom of your main page there should be a chart icon- click on that and scroll down till you see the ‘best times’ header. It will show you some days with the best time to post, but if you click on it it will show you the best times to post for the whole week.
- With IG analytics- on your profile page find the icon that looks like a bar chart and tap on it. Scroll down to the ‘followers’ heading- those are the times your followers are scrolling through their IG feed (that analytics icon has tons of information like engagement, reach and more-go through it when you have some free time).
Now it’s time for the FREEBIE! It’s a .pdf of every hashtag that I could think of/find sorted into categories and are good for copy + paste (think of the first hack I suggested). Get it by clicking the photo below.
