If you want more Instagram followers, comments, and likes, using hashtags is the best way to make it happen. Faster.

A common mistake many business owners make is posting hashtags that their peers are using, not what their dream customer is searching for.

This means that in order to use hashtags that attract your ideal customer, you should ask yourself:

  • What is your ideal customer looking for?

  • How do they spend their free time?

  • Where do they shop?

  • What podcasts do they listen to?
