HASHTAG AND USER MENTIONS
Tagging brands and influences on Instagram can increase likes and comments and result in more shares for your posts, which means more distribution for your content! In fact, Media monitoring company Mention, found that each user tag can increase likes by between .5 and one per tag and increase comments by even more.
When you tag customers and followers in posts, it can help build brand loyalty – it’s a great way to say thank you to your fans. Tagging users can even result in a more pleasant Instagram feed experience, as Instagram learns which other accounts are important to you.
Since 72% of Instagram posts do not utilize user tagging, effective implementation of user tagging is a way for you to stand out!
