Let's talk hashtags. Many of us know what they are, some of us are clueless. Hashtags have become so important in today's society in easily locating things that are trending, things that are for sale, and much more. Today we will focus on the "things that are for sale" aspect & more particularly, hash tags you should be using on Instagram if you have an Etsy shop.
Instagram is a HUGE tool for your business. Why? Because it is photo based & it is free (as of right now). People are using Instagram more & more as a shopping site, which is why if you don't have an account- you need to get one & if you do have an account you need to understand the importance of hashtagging.
I'm sure most of you know to #Etsy , but it's a fast moving tag so photo's tend to get lost quickly in the feed. Below are 11 hashtags you should totally be using on your Instagram account when you are uploading your Etsy items. I've even included a few that are linked to big time Etsy promotional accounts that love to love your stuff even if they don't feature it. (They are ran by independent people that love to support Etsy. They are not run by Etsy, nor are they affiliated with Etsy.)
Etsy Hunter is an Instagram account that features Etsy shops. This tag is how they locate items that shop owners wish to have them feature. Plus, it's a popular hashtag that Etsy sellers search. With 61,710 current posts it makes this hashtag just popular enough, but not enough to get lost.
Etsy USA is another Instagram account that features Etsy shops. They have 13.6k current followers & are growing by an average of 300 followers per day. With 13,990 current posts you won't be drowning in the whirlpool of the "too broad" hashtags.
This hashtag is linked to the Instagram account @Etsypreneurs. They too love to feature fab Etsy products. They currently boast 5800 followers & growing so go follow them & get tagging.
This is a popular hashtag for people who want to, you guessed it, shop Etsy! This hashtag currently has 85,000 posts. Again, enough to be reputable, not enough to get lost in.
Etsy finds is another popular hashtag to locate great Etsy shops & products. Currently, there is a nice flow to this hashtag. 91,773 posts are tagged with it.
Hashtag EtsyForAll is an upcoming hashtag gaining popularity fast.
This one is pretty self explanatory, right?
You're an Etsy Seller so tag it!
Running a sale in your Etsy shop? Tell everone about it with this popular Etsy sale hashtag.
If you're looking for some extra lov'in on your Etsy product posts, tag Etsy love!
Some of these may sound like they have A LOT, but in comparison, they do not. They also do not revolve as quickly as just using #Etsy, leaving your product photo to linger a bit longer in front of those searching that tag. The Etsy hashtag alone currently has 4,012,296 posts it is tagged in. While you should most definitely always use it when posting your Etsy items, you should include some of the smaller time tags as well.
