This week Sean Earley wrote an article on the dramatic results he achieved over a 24 hours period after adding “more targeted hashtags on Instagram.” Sean is a Digital Marketing Consultant at Digital Artist Marketing and an artist who creates vintage Pin-Up art. You can view some of his work on his Instagram profile here.
Normally, when Sean added his art images to Instagram, he’d tag each with #pinup #pinupart and #retro, to routinely get a couple of likes.
After reading our article, Get Your Art Showcased and Featured in Instagram Galleries, and taking our advice, he tried updating his previous Instagram art images by adding new hashtags to help him reach out to art buyers– such as: #homedecor #interiordesign #decorating #officedecor and others.
Sean Earley noted that within 24 hours of adding these hashtags to his art images, he received 92 likes, 7 new followers and 2 mailing list sign ups. This is a great start and he has new Instagram notifications still coming in.
