This will be an Easy Hashtag Training-
In this Hashtag training I will show you.

I don’t want to make this training too extreme or difficult I just want to talk about how to use hashtags and why you should be using them in your day to day posts.
Hash tags are a way to get your content noticed into trends and make more of your content searchable. Let’s face it. If you are promoting your business online, then you need more eyeballs to look at your offer. That part is simple. All you need is some basic hashtag training and you will be well on your way to promoting content that will be able to be found with ease.
In fact if you start to use a hot hashtag, then your content can go viral in a hurry. Hashtag training will get you set to deliver your goods.
As we get started into the first part of this hashtag training I want to look at some interesting facts.

#2 or Number 2 LOL, of the Hashtag Training
There are several ideas on how many hashtags you should post. I think in general you want to be able to read the post easily and not have it be too jumbled. That being said something like www.tagsforlikes.com allows you to post 30 of the most hot hashtags for a certain subject as it’s Instagram’s maximum hashtag amount allowed.
You can test it out on different platforms but I took this gem.
Here is a quick Rule of Thumb Guide that I took from this article by Kevan Lee
Rule of thumb: 1 – 3 tags is best over all platforms.
Twitter: to categorize
Pinterest: to brand, and be specific (tags are only clickable in pin descriptions)
Instagram: to build community, and be unique/detailed
Google+: to categorize; autogenerates tags based on what it thinks your post is most relevant to
Tumblr: to categorize interests, can be specific and general (has a “track your tags” feature)
Facebook: sort of a hashtag fail – if your audience is very business-minded, follow Twitter rules; if it is community-oriented, follow Pinterest/Instagram rules

#3 of the Hashtag Training is to be able to use hashtags inside images.
A lot of the time, depending on what platform you are on, the credit for an image is lost. Only platforms like Google + really are focused on giving credit for where content is found.
One way to remedy this problem is by placing the hashtag inside the image. This won’t make the hashtag indexed by Google or clickable in any way. However it will start to create a branding in your prospects mind of that word.
By placing a hashtag inside an image you allow the sharing that is potentially going to be done to carry your branding around for you wherever it goes.
It’s like a sneaky way to insert your website but without inserting your website.
It peaks curiosity as to why the hashtag is in the photo and encourage people to find out more about it.
If you post pictures from your phone you can easily use a App called Picsay to easily enter text over your images plus a whole lot more. Download it here for free.
That is it. This Hashtag training is a wrap.
I didn’t want to make it too complex. Should be your rule of thumb. Make it easy for people to understand, easy for people to like comment and share and easy for them to connect with you.
I hope you found value here. Please like, share and comment with your connections. If you would like to work with me directly then take a 2 week trail and let me show you how to build your business.
