Using hashtags for days of the week?
They’re the tops in trending tags!
Days of the week hashtags are perfect for Instagram and Twitter. They get your posts and tweets in front of new followers!
Hashtags are back on Pinterest, but “days of the week” don’t work for Pins, which last for months, not minutes or hours. Click to read the latest on Pinterest hashtags.
You can test hashtags on Facebook. Some marketers have found they reduce your reach. If you try hashtags on FB, stick with one or two.
But they can wildly increase your reach on those 2 platforms that love hashtags!
Here’s how to use ’em for business.
Don’t forget to grab your FREE days of the week hashtag cheat sheet at the end!
How to Use Days of the Week Hashtags
- Before using hashtags, research them. Hashtag meanings can change over time. And some hashtags don’t mean what you think they mean. Some hashtags I decided not to include due to wild stuff being posted on them. Just make sure you want your posts to live in that neighborhood – er, hashtag feed.
- Depending on your time zone and your followers’, you may want to make your days of the week posts either early in the day, or perhaps the evening before. Don’t post so early that it doesn’t make sense, but also don’t post #TGIF on Friday night in Pacific time, as most people will be seeing it on Saturday 🙂
- You don’t always have to produce the content yourself to participate in these fun hashtag days. Search the hashtag, find a post you like, and retweet, share, or re-gram it (I recommend getting permission to regram, as sharing isn’t part of the Instagram platform).
- For Instagram, keep a note on your phone with groups of hashtags that you can copy and paste quickly.
- Use no more than 3 hashtags on Twitter, and up to 30 on Instagram. Yes, I use that many. They work!
