Hashtags in stories? My 🧠 went 💥 first time I read that. (Yet another thing to take care of?? 😅 Anyway…) Why and how should you use them?
The why is really simple: they push your stories out of your follower bubble.
Which hashtags should you choose? The same you’d choose in your posts.
👉 Figure out your niche first: whom do you want to reach?
👉 Go mostly for non-crazy-popular hashtags.
👉 Check that the posts there match your story.
You can add up to 1️⃣0️⃣ hashtags to your stories, which help others find them.
One thing about hashtags in stories … some people think that they … look ugly.
If you’re one of those, here are some tips how to deal with that:
👉 Make them really small. 🙂
👉 Hide them behind something.
👉 Move them outside the visible area.
👉 Make them the same color as the background.
