When someone tags you in a picture, more people see you than before. This is fantastic and pretty much a referral. You want potential customers you haven’t reached to see you. This is similar to how celebrity post ads on Instagram. They tag the product. They put #ad. Then they expose to a product their followers that they may have never thought of before. Sometimes, if you have great partnerships, you can have them post your photos and advertise your product to their followers. This will put your image in the minds of more people and give you a better reputation.

This is simple: if a certain style or hashtag comes up a lot, pay attention. Check hashtags that are relevant to you, so if you are a make up artist, check out #weddingmakeup. See what is out there. This will give you an edge on what future clients might want or expect you to show on your own social media. Also, tap to see who the user tagged. If users tag a certain business multiple times in the same hashtag, it means they are popular. There is no shame in checking out what they are doing to reach the target audience you desire. Take a few minutes every day to do this and you will be one step ahead of the competition.
