Title: Using Hashtag Research to Generate Content for Social Media Marketing
Engaging your audience on social media can be a daunting task for small businesses. Besides creating clever marketing, businesses need to research their audience to discover topics that are both interesting and engaging. When creating social media posts on Instagram, those containing a hashtag average 12.6% higher engagement than those without a hashtag. In addition, using certain hashtags can put your post in front of an audience that you are trying to target. So, how can you use hashtag research to find interesting topics to create highly engaging content for your target market?
