Hashtags & How to Use Them

Featured

“Use of a word or phrase preceded by a hash or pound sign (#)to identify messages on a specific topic” is the definition of a hashtag given if you search online. The concept is simple, in fact so simple, sometimes it’s confusing. Just think about what YOU might search for when adding hashtags and simply put the “#” in front of it.

Here are a couple “broad” hashtags. #home #art #textiles. And a few “refined” hashtags. #modernlivingroom #streetart #digitalprintedtextiles. Finally, some specific hashtags. #hgtvhome #keitharing #first2print

As you can see the hashtags all fit within three basic areas, but guide the search to different things. Specific hashtags would be for companies, people, subjects, etc. that people are aware of and would have an audience already. Refined hashtags will help people who are trying to find something a bit more direct. Broad hashtags will give you the largest number of results.

Sample

This beautiful image is an excellent example as it could be tagged with many things; #tile #ethnic #brightcolor #handbpainted #inspiration #quilt #geometric, so this example would be found by lots of searchers. We could then get specific by tagging things like #designworksintl #first2print #fabricdesign #textileinspiration.

So make sure you tag your photos so the right people find them in places like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. You can even add our “#designworksintl” hashtag to your images and we could see your images!
