As you may know, I use and love Tailwind for Pinterest. I’ve written about the tool in my post about how I greatly increased my Pinterest monthly views, as well as in my post about essential tools for bloggers. As a way to schedule pins ahead of time, Tailwind is a lifesaver. I love how I can audit and monitor my group boards, too!
When I heard that Tailwind had a new tool for Instagram, I thought I’d check it out!
Tailwind for Instagram: Hashtag Finder Tool Tutorial
As with Pinterest, in Tailwind for Instagram, you’re able to upload and schedule images ahead of time to be posted at optimized times. The Hashtag Finder Tool is a great way to find and use hashtags in your caption that people actually use and are relevant to your image. I’ve created this (very basic) video on how to use the tool.
Select image to upload via your computer.
Start typing your caption. As you start writing, relevant hashtags will start to autogenerate.
Select and audit the hashtags. You can hover over the hashtag suggestions to see how many posts use that specific term. Click the hashtag to add it to your caption, and X out if you don’t want to use it. Click the refresh button to have new suggestions pop up.
Schedule your post! Let Tailwind optimize the posting time for you, choose to post immediately, or select a time on your own.
That’s it! Hopefully, my very basic tutorial shows you how easy this tool actually is. Let me know if you have any questions! Here is Tailwind’s page with more info on the tool, too.
