How the right hashtags can increase your ‘likes’ on Instagram


It’s no big secret – the hashtag is a brilliant social media tool.

For businesses using Instagram, hashtags allow you to connect with your target audience by identifying your products and services through images.

Given Instagram’s gargantuan catalogue, industry-related hashtags (business, food, education) are the most effective way to help users find your content and subsequently ‘like’ your images. There’s also a limit of 30 hashtags – so it’s important to make the most of them!

At Harvey & Hugo, we find hashtags that are industry-related are the most effective and beneficial for clients looking to gain ‘likes’ on their images. Here are some examples:
