Probably the simplest way to increase your visibility on social media, but it’s a practice a lot of people get wrong. Tagging dead hashtags, company hashtags, or not using them at all can decrease the value of your posts. You need to be able to tag the audience that will offer the most engagement. The audience will take a genuine interest in your post and will generate a conversation with you. If you use hashtags incorrectly you can attract the wrong audience and leave your content dead in the water.
Every platform structures its home feeds differently. You can strategically structure your posts for maximum impact. A view is generally counted by a social media platform as a member stopping for 3 seconds on the post. This means you can create linger time and curiosity through the structure of your post. Leaving members to click “see more” will generate engagement, views and will increase your reach on the social platform.
