One of the hardest things to do on social media is find the right kind of hashtags that you can use to target your customers in the hope of driving more sales. The hot social network using hashtags at the moment is Instagram, where there really is no limit to how many hashtags you can use in a post (unlike Facebook or Twitter).
You may find that you have certain hashtags that you use on a daily basis to describe your business and your posts but have you ever wondered how to find customers across multiple networks with Hashtags? Look no further than TagBoard.
You can create an account using your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account and TagBoard is free to use. You enter in a hashtag, and Tagboard will search and collect social media activity around this hashtag on the likes of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
As you can see above, in the top right hand corner of each post, you can see where it originated from. What Tagboard have created is a new, unique way to find content from a number of different social networks, based on a common hashtag. When you create tagboards, you can actually embed them into your website, or even mobile applications.
Although Tagboard has just hit the social scene, there really isn’t anything that competes with its speed, discovery and versatility. A hashtag is such a powerful tool that as a business, when you can find customers from every social walk of life in just one click is a very powerful way to find potential consumers online.
It can be lethargic to spend hours going through different hashtags on every social network separately but to save time, use TagBoard to bring all of the information into one central location without having to spend a penny.
Are you going to be using Tagboard for your business?
