Different Types of Instagram Hashtags

Did you know a post with at least ONE hashtag averages 12.6% more engagement than posts without?⁠

I'm confident that by understanding the different types of hashtags and their corresponding audiences, you'll be able to develop an effective Instagram hashtag strategy, or just send us a message and see how we can help you do so! 

There are Branded Hashtags, which are unique to your company when using Instagram for business. I'm going to start using #MorrowManagement on all my client posts so that when people click the hashtag they can see all the content I've created! ⁠

Then there are Campaign Hashtags which are usually shorter-term and run for just a few days or season. These are typically tied to a specific campaign such as product launches, partnerships, contests, etc. They’re great for building a lot of engagement in a short period of time! For example, #TwelveDaysOfGiveaways
