Instagram Hashtag Tips

So I’m sitting here taking my post workout selfies and meal prep … you know, getting that Instagram game down.

Which got me to thinking about hashtags and all of the craziness surrounding them.  It’s all too often we see someone posting a pic with like 50 hashtags, so of which are full sentences. I’m sure that #omgthisdonutisbomdotcom isn’t helping with getting likes and follows … So, how many hashtags is too many?  What’s the perfect number?

  • 3 should be even more narrow tags, which will likely relate directly to the post you’re making
