Hashtag Tip 1:
Mix your hashtags up. By this we mean use ones which are popular and unpopular. So for example, #smallspacelivinghas 36,113 posts connect to it, but a more generic #interiordesign has over 40 million. It’s best to add ones ranging from millions down to just hundreds. This way you’re increase your chances of being seen. Adding popular ones mean you’ll likely be seen by lots of people searching for this hashtag. But equally, that your image may get quickly lost amongst the crowd. The same is for the opposite way around. Using less popular hashtags means less people will see your post, but you’re likely to get noticed by the these few people.

Hashtag Tip 2:
Only put around 3 – 4 hashtags in your actual post description. Then, add the rest in the comments section. Not only does this hide spammy hashtags but it’s what instagram prefers you do.
Hashtag Tip 3:
Get ready for this to blow your mind. There’s a short cut for writing hashtags on an iphone. Got to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Text Replacment. In this section you can input a shortcut word e.g. ‘instashortcut’ and tell your iphone to automatically make it pop up with lots of different hashtags. All you need to do is type in the hashtags. It’s basically suposed to be used for text replacement. E.g. ‘WUU2’ could be a quick way of writing ‘what you up to?’ – get it? Try it out!

Hashtag Tip 4:
You can only post 30 hashtags in one post – so use all thirty! Yes it may be time consuming but that extra 30 seconds typing them out could double followers and likes.
Hashtag Tip 5:
Certain hashtags have been created specifically for gianing traffic, followers etc. Hashtags like #picoftheday #instalove #followforfollow #tagsforlikes and #bestoftheday can be used if desperate times call for desperate measures.
