Learn the meaning behind the hashtag symbol (#), how to include it in your tweets, and why it's so important for engagement on Twitter, even for insurance agents.
The Agent Survival Guide Team’s 7 Rules for Using Hashtags:
- Hashtags don’t have spaces between words or punctuation in words.
- Hashtag phrases are usually CamelCase. The first letter of each word is capitalized to help you read phrases better, i.e. #InsuranceAgents not #insuranceagents.
- Hashtags can occur anywhere in a tweet — at the beginning, the middle, or the end.
- Hashtag words that become very popular on Twitter are often Trending Topics (which are highlighted in the sidebar of your Twitter feed).
- If you tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag can find your tweet.
- Don’t #spam #with #hashtags. Avoid over-tagging a single tweet. (The recommendation is no more than two to three hashtags per tweet.)
- Use hashtags only on tweets relevant to the topic. So, don’t add #insurance to a tweet about a bad hair day.
