If you’ve been on social media for any length of time then you’ll be aware of hashtags. Including them in posts can broaden your reach but also offers a chance to connect with like minded individuals, other writers and their ilk.

Benefits of Writer’s Hashtags

  • If you send a tweet with a hashtag you’ll receive twice the engagement.
  • You are more likely to be noticed by non-followers who are using a particular hashtag.
  • You have more chance of being retweeted if you include a hashtag.

Pros and Cons of Using Hashtags for Writers

  • Number is important – one or two per post will suffice. Any more than that and you begin to see the effect dwindle.
  • Make your post relevant to the hashtag. So if you use #MondayBlogs don’t put in a plug for your latest product or book. That’s not what that particular hashtag is for.
  • Find the ones that work for you – it’s a good idea to experiment with different hashtags and at different times to see what sort of response you get.
  • Hashtags are not limited to just Twitter. You can use them on other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram too.
