Hashtag campaigns on Instagram are social media marketing tools designed around one or more hashtags. You pick a unique hashtag, which represents your brand and is aligned with your marketing goals. By asking your customers and community to share photos and videos to Instagram and other social media platforms the hashtag is spread organically.
Instagram hashtag campaigns work great because of the benefits that your community can claim by using your hashtag. Fans and users are encouraged to share content with your hashtag by integrating a competition, prizes or coupon codes.
Naturally, by joining your campaign, their photos and videos spread organically on Instagram among their friends and followers – including your hashtag!
