In the last year or so, I have genuinely upped my Pinterest game. How so? First, I have worked on making my Pinboards more SEO friendly.
I also found a great way to pre-schedule posts ahead of time, as well as share with a broader audience. In doing so, I practically doubled my Pinterest Followers in less than a year’s time.
While this has helped with my Pinterest traffic on my blog, my other social networks still were lagging in this area.
See I have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram social media accounts, as well. I admit I came onto the Instagram scene later than I did for the other three social media networks. Plus, I very often have a harder time deciding when to share, as well as what hashtags to use on Instagram.
But then I realized Tailwind also works with Instagram. I had been hesitant to try it out for Instagram in all honesty. Because while Tailwind worked nicely for Pinterest, I still was stubborn in wanting to try to do my own unscheduled Instagram sharing.
However, I recently learned that Tailwind now offers a Hashtag Finder Tool for Instagram sharing through them. I was curious how it worked.
So how does Tailwind’s Instagram Hashtag Finder work?
Well, it seems that first and foremost you get a fresh selection of hashtags for every post, every time. Furthermore, Hashtag suggestions now appear and refresh as you type, whether you include hashtags or not! You can even find more hashtags by shuffling them or quickly dismissing the ones that aren’t quite right. How about finding our how popular specific hashtags are? All you have to do is hover over any hashtag to see how popular it is so you can quickly pick the best ones for you.
I love this feature as I will be honest I was always trying to guess which hashtags to use for my Instagram photos. But with Tailwind’s Hashtag Finder, they took the guesswork out for me with Hashtags. Take for instance this photo, I have scheduled in Tailwind for Instagram right now for an Instant Pot Mac and Cheese Recipe being posted on my blog:
I was able to write my own description for the recipe itself. But I also was given the opportunity to add Hashtags that were good, best, competitive and even for my own niche to get even more eyes on my Instagram photo share for this upcoming blog post.
Seems perfect and easy enough, right?! Check out the short video below to see Tailwind’s Instagram Hashtag Finder in action for yourself:
