how to use a hashtag

How the heck do you use a hashtag?


Do you know the power of a hashtag? (Do you even know what a hashtag is?)

I get asked about hashtags a lot in my business, and it’s not uncommon to feel like a #dinosaur. Shoot, I question myself every time I use a hashtag–still!

There’s no shame in not knowing what a hashtag is or how to use it. There really aren’t any true tutorials on it and for us Gen-Xers and older, it’s just the pound symbol on the dial pad of the phone you grew up with.

But for those of us who use social media on a regular basis (or want to), it’s a powerful tool you can use as a business or a consumer to help save you time and get you noticed in all the right places.

On this week’s episode of the Confident Communications podcast, I’m sharing the what, why and how of hashtags so you don’t feel so in the dark. You’ll feel more confident in playing around with hashtags for business and for entertainment–there’s so much you can do with them!
