Use Your Network

Brand Your Engagement

Everyone loves to hashtag, and as time continues – it’s also important to consider how your hashtags should be timebound as a capsule of memories. Creating a hashtag that your company (and other users) can search for is essentially free advertising. Every time someone posts a photo using the tag, they’re exposing your company to their followers. If you already have a popular brand slogan or phrase, consider making that your branded hashtag.
