Make Facebook hashtags work for you

Facebook has recently introduced a feature that many other social media have been using for a while. I’m talking about hashtags. Hashtags are words that start with the # symbol.

Hashtags help to engage with others and explore content that you may be interested in. When you use relevant keywords formatted as a #hashtag, you make it clickable, therefore searchable. For example, if someone clicks on a word that is hashtagged, they receive a list of Facebook search results for that word. This can work in your favor, because it allows fans of other artists to find out about you because they clicked on their hashtags.

Get in the habit of using relevant hashtags on your Facebook posts to make your work more searchable. You will see an increase in traffic from people searching hashtags of other users interested in your art. Some examples are: #art, #painting, #sketch, #sculpture, #and illustration.



About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
