Good morning and happy art Saturday! Before I know it this page will have more followers than @kissy_kris82
I strongly believe in the power of hashtags. I've had this account up for around 2 months and BAM 11k! You have to watch out for those "broken or banned" hashtags though since they could have a negative impact on your engagement.
One of the beauties that follows me listened and removed one of the broken tags and immediately saw her engagement go back up. Hashtags work when you're a growing business. Don't get sucked in paying for promotions. Free shout pages are your friends, just be patient with them as they receive A LOT of messages daily.
Be selective with your hashtags to grow your business. You want to try and reach your niche however you want to also reach the masses. If you're a part of the body positive movement then use those bopo tags! Everyone has their favorites but also try to incorporate different tags daily whether they be specific to a particular theme or season.
You can easily tell the broken or banned tags. A tag may be "temporarily broken" if you don't see any other hashtag recommendations at the top. Most of those are only temporary and come back in a short period. Banned tags may never recover and have a message under the recent tab that states: top posts from BBW are currently hidden because the community has reported some content that may not meet IG community guidelines. *
I added a highlight of banned tags to avoid in my bio. I hope it helps those of you that read the captions and watch my stories. I didn't mean for this to turn into such a long post and take away from the awesomeness mermaid art that @nigelhayles
created for me. If anything I hope it helps businesses grow! Small businesses like @nigelhayles
and other artists I love to support depend on you and the community to spread their work so they can grow. Support your favorite artists. Like, comment and share their work. Commission a piece. They appreciate all support given ❤
