The Value of Hashtags

Hashtags are an incredible way to promote your brand, attract new customers, and engage in conversations around your niche. Hashtags moved into common usage on Twitter and recently Facebook added the feature.

Now that Facebook has hashtags, it won’t be long before they become ubiquitous.

Lots of people monitor hashtags. That means they are tracking everything that’s said on Twitter around the hashtag in which they’re interested. For example, they might track a hashtag for #Naples or #ACService or #boating. If you include any of these hashtags in your tweets, people who track those hashtags will see your tweets.

Creating a hashtag is simple. You just put a pound sign in from of a word or group of words. For example: #SalsPizza. You can do it with any word. There are no restrictions.

Searching for hashtags is equally simple. Just type the hashtag you’re looking for into the Twitter search bar. If you’re looking for the #Florida hashtag, enter #Florida into the search bar.
