7 insta tips

Truth: You are one of over 800 million monthly users on the Instagram platform. Getting found in search is crucial but much easier than you’d think if you do it right.

The app needs a way to filter through all the noise and put your image in front of the right people. Hashtags are one way Instagram connects users with the exact content they are most interested in. But just any hashtag won’t do – it’s important to find and use hashtags directly related to your niche.
