Advertising campaigns and Twitter hashtags
Nowadays everybody knows what a hashtag is. If you don’t, don’t worry, we are going to explain it to you. A hashtag is a keyword accompanied by a sign like this: #. We use this words to distinguish tweets which are related between them from the rest of the content found on Twitter. The hashtag’s main aim is to group all the tweets talking about the same subject. So, are hashtags related to advertising? Of course they are. It is really common to use Twitter hashtags in your advertising campaign. And in Tweet Binder we’re experts when analyzing Twitter hashtags.
How to create the Twitter hashtag for your advertising campaign
There are some aspects we have to be aware of when creating a hashtag for our advertising campaign. Our hashtag has to be simple and easy to remember. We cannot use too complicated words or make it extremely long. If we do that, people won’t remember it and as a consequence, they won’t use it. Our hashtag has to be unique and we, as a company, have to be the first to use it. We have to be the first but we have to use it permanently. It has to be included in every single action in our advertising campaign.
If you have doubts about to check if your ideal hashtag is taken, visit Twitter. Twitter’s browser is pretty useful. There, for example, you can include your hashtag and check out if it has already been used. If not, your are lucky! If it is not free, then you may have to try harder and check your new hashtag on the browser.
Why is it important to include Twitter hashtags in your advertising campaign?
They are really helpful to increase our brand’s presence on social media. Twitter hashtags help making our content much more viewable by going beyond our followers; they are also used for engaging with our customers. Hashtags allow them to join conversations about our advertising campaign, our products or simply our brand.
So, it is important because using Twitter hashtags definitely encourages our audience to take part in conversations and to engage with other people who are also talking about our brand. People talking about us results on a higher presence on social media and a greater number of people hearing about us.
