You Should Add Hashtags in Stories

Hashtags in stories? My ๐Ÿง  went ๐Ÿ’ฅ first time I read that. (Yet another thing to take care of?? ๐Ÿ˜… Anywayโ€ฆ) 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 youโ€™d choose in your posts.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Figure out your niche first: whom do you want to reach?
๐Ÿ‘‰ Go mostly for non-crazy-popular hashtags.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Check that the posts there match your story.

You can add up to 1๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ hashtags to your stories, which help others find them.

One thing about hashtags in stories โ€ฆ some people think that they โ€ฆ look ugly.

If youโ€™re one of those, here are some tips how to deal with that:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Make them really small. ๐Ÿ™‚
๐Ÿ‘‰ Hide them behind something.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Move them outside the visible area.
