Posting on Instagram, but worried you’re not reaching your target audience? Or anxious new readers might not be able to find you?

Now, obviously some of these might not apply to you- no worries- but make sure you are using hashtags strategically. For example, we can see that the hashtag #goodreads is mega popular with over 2,500,000 posts. Is there a way you can mention Goodreads in your post? Can you make a post about following you on Goodreads, or adding your new release to their TBR, so you can add that hashtag?

Or, are you having a sale and making a book free for a limited time? Hashtag that up and make sure you are reaching readers who search Instagram for free reads!

Now go out there, you social media pro, and hashtag it up!
