Hashtags are everywhere! Even on LinkedIn! Use them consistently to brand your social media posts.

You can create your own hashtags or ride on the coattails of a trending one (if it's relevant for your marketing message). Every morning on Twitter a hashtags starts trending and you can take advantage that thousands of people are using it to get exposure for your business.

Here are some of the regualar ones:

  • Using trending hashtags#MondayMotivation
  • #Tuesday Motivation; #TravelTuesday #TuesdayThoughts
  • #WednesdayWisdom
  • ##ThursdayThoughts
  • #FridayFeeling; #FlashbackFriday
  • #SaturdayMorning
  • #SundayMorning

Who starts these hashtags?

I'm guessing it's someone in either Australia or New Zealand. They're waking up first, of course! As the world awakens and people log on to Twitter to see what's going on, they jump on the bandwagon.

This video will show you how to use hashtags effectively to get your marketing message noticed.
