I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending a tool called Display Purposes which helps you find the best hashtags to use on social media.
The tool is particularly helpful for Instagram, where hashtags are how people find your content.
So simple to use, and really effective. Here’s how it works when I add “Monday” to the search bar.
On Instagram you should aim to use a mix of popular hashtags (which many people browse), and less popular hashtags that you stand a chance of getting a spot in “Top” for. The tool is very useful for this as it returns the search results in order of descending popularity.
And something really super-cool, I can zoom in on my local region to gauge the popularity of the hashtag.
