Instagram hashtags are immensely important for reaching a wide range of audiences on social media, and hashtags like #logo, #graphicdesign, #branding, etc. (hashtags we mostly use) are a great way to reach people with similar interests who aren't your followers, yet. So, choosing between hashtags is highly important in order to grow.

The quickest and cheapest way to get decent hashtags for your post (Not recommended as a long-term strategy) is to copy hashtags from other highly engaged users in your niche, and use the same hashtags in your posts.

But, that method will only get you so far, due to the rapid changes on all social media platforms. Besides, you always want to be changing and testing different approaches to make sure you're doing it the right way and taking full advantage of hashtags.

So, to solve this issue and take full advantage of hashtags we researched the best ways to get engaging hashtags and came across Flick.
