Have you ever wanted to know how hashtags make your Instagram posts go viral? You’re in for a treat.
Today I'm going to show you how Jack increased the impressions of the posts in his fairly new Instagram account from below 1000 to 75000+ in 2 weeks thanks to the right hashtags.
The massive visibility of the posts led his Instagram account to high engagement and fast growth.
Jack accomplished this without using:
Instead, he decided to focus on posting high-quality content in his niche (Apex Legends, the most popular game according to Twitch right now) and changing his hashtag strategy.
He stopped using generic hashtags after he found out my free Hashtag Research Online Tool and decided to try it on his account.
After a few days, he contacted me saying that he was getting impressive results and he agreed to share some more insights.
Here's my chat with Jack:
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT'S YOUR PLAN WITH INSTAGRAM?
My name is Jack, I am a final year university student studying for a masters in Mechanical Engineering.
I have always been interested in social media and the complexities behind something that at first seems relatively simple.
I've been helping grow my girlfriends social media following organically using tips and tricks from BHW but felt restricted as it wasn't my account and my content.
I began experimenting with Jarvee and automation and decided I'd like to grow my own pages.
Both my younger brothers are massive gamers and it is a niche I know fairly well.
When Apex Legends released I was able to get two good account names in that niche and have been growing them fairly well.
I gained over 1000 followers on each account in the first 10 days and they are continuing to grow.
My plan is simply to continue growing these accounts (essentially an experiment of mine as I am fairly new to this) and look for possible ways of making money with the accounts later on.
WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH YOUR INSTAGRAM STRATEGY THAT SENT YOU LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION LIKE MINE?
My engagement with my followers was very high but I noticed that I was receiving almost no reach from hashtags whereas on my gfs and my personal accounts hashtags generated a lot of likes.
I was finding it difficult to do hashtag research as the Apex Legends niche was new.
I noticed the hashtag research tool on BHW and decided to give it a go on my next posts.
WHAT MADE YOU CONFIDENT THAT "RISEDECODED - HASHTAG RESEARCH TOOL" WAS A GOOD FIT FOR YOU?
My very first post using the gaming hashtags generated by your tool resulted in a huge increase in hashtag impressions (from below 100 to 3,500+).
The tool is also proving useful for researching hashtags specific to my niche.
WHAT HAS THAT MEANT FOR YOUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS?
The majority of posts I had had using hashtags from your tool achieve a crazy amount of impressions.
The best post receiving 15,000 impressions for an account with sub 1k followers at the time of posting.
It has allowed me to get viral content noticed and reach the top 6 of several hashtag groups resulting in great engagement.
WHAT RESULTS ARE YOU SEEING AFTER TWO WEEKS USING THE TOOL?
I have not had any viral posts the last week or so but my posts still get good impressions.
The hashtags consistently extend my post impressions by 40%+ bringing new people to my profile and continuing the growth alongside other growth methods.
When you understand how hashtags work, you can achieve dramatic results quickly and for free, just by inserting the right ones in your Instagram posts.
Now let's see how Jack's success look like:
BEST PERFORMING POST SO FAR
These are screenshots taken by Jack showing the insights of some post of his Instagram account.
Before using my hashtag strategy the standard reach was about 400-500 people.
After using the hashtags provided by my tool, the reach increased by minimum 10X.
That led to the best performing post with these impressive results:
With a single image post, he reached 68,398 different accounts, and 98% of them weren't following him.
As you can see the results are exciting and prove the power of hashtags.
Thank you again Jack for sharing your success story!
The best part of this story is that also you can obtain similar or better results without obscure strategy or a lot of money.
You only need to change the way you think about Instagram hashtags.
The problem is that finding the perfect hashtags for your niche is a complicated and time-consuming process to do on your own.
I imagine you don't have time and energy to search between thousands of hashtags and to do serious math calculations to decide the best ones every single time.
So when you publish on your Instagram accounts, you use the same popular and generic hashtags all the time that lead to nowhere.
For this reason, I created the free Hashtag Research Online Tool: no need to do complex math, just choose your niche and you have in a few seconds the best 30 hashtags, daily updated and ready to copy-paste on your next post!
