Build a dedicated community that’s all yours with a branded hashtag
A branded hashtag is one of the best ways to separate you from your competitors. Not only that, but it gives your community a way to connect with you and each other. You can interact and share relevant content that everyone can see by visiting your hashtag.
Find fun ways to draw them into your community.
Ask them to share photos using your special hashtag, like “#WingnutWednesday”. Or post a challenge asking them to do something—like showing off their fall porch decor! The end goal is to give your followers a platform for their content.
Be creative, quirky, and clear!
Your hashtag can’t be boring. For example, “Miami Designer” is just too generic. Martha O’Hara gives us an example of a great branded hashtag: #OHMyStyledLife. It’s fun, it’s catchy, and above all it’s memorable. So give it a shot and see what fun hashtags you can come up with!
You also want to be clear with your followers why they should use your hashtag
You need to offer them value.
So what does that mean? Be clear how you will reward your followers. One of the easiest ways to do that is to share their posts on your social media when they use your branded hashtag. Your follower gets all the credit, and it will help new designers get a reach they wouldn’t have. Who doesn’t want that?!
