Marketing is very effective; in fact, many businesses across the globe have had humongous successes when they infiltrate the world of marketing. However, a large part of marketing nowadays is online – through channels like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and more! Using these channels can generate millions of leads for a business. And thanks to hashtags, that million could even turn into three million.
We have all seen hashtags. From the “trending” sidebar of the Twitter website to the keypad on our smartphones, the hashtag is everywhere! But what are the best hashtags to use to generate the most scalability of your marketing campaign?
Our certified data team over at The Think Tank compiled a list of a few of the most effective marketing hashtags. Enjoy (and share ;])
