Quick tips for choosing hashtags:

Choosing the right hashtags on Instagram can be tricky, but it's important to get it right to maximize your reach and engagement. Here are some key things to consider:

Relevance:

Popularity:

  • Find the balance: Super popular hashtags (#artist or #artoftheday) might get lost in the crowd, while very niche ones (#MyButterflyArt) might not get enough views.

  • Use Instagram's search function: Type in a hashtag and see how many posts it has. Aim for something between 1K and 1M posts (the hashtags listed above generally fall within that range).

Number of hashtags:

  • More is generally better: Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags, so we recommend using them to the max.

  • Focus on quality: It's better to have 15 art selling hashtags that promote you, your art, and attract art collectors, decorators and sales, plus 15 super relevant hashtags that describe your art, artistic medium or style. Avoid using 30 hashtags that all just general.

Additional tips:

  • Use a mix of popularities: Include a few high-volume hashtags, some medium-volume ones, and a couple of niche hashtags.

  • Track your results: See which hashtags are performing well and adjust your strategy over time.

  • Don't use banned hashtags: Research to avoid using hashtags that Instagram has banned.

  • Create a branded hashtag: Encourage people to use a hashtag specific to your brand or campaign.

By following these tips, you can choose the best instagram hashtags for artists and help your Instagram posts get seen by the right people.

Remember, the key is to mix and match these hashtags based on your art style, medium, and target audience.
