Use hashtags to promote your content

Hashtags can be very effective in boosting your content. Since social media users can easily follow hashtags, it's good to use them in your posts so that users can access your content by accessing the hashtag. Those who take an interest in your content can follow your profile and get alerts when you provide more content in the future.

Hashtag searching also has another benefit for social media users that search for a specific location or a company profile. If you add a link to your post to tag a company, social media users can easily access this new content.
 
Here are a number of example hashtags:

  • #housing

  • #apartment

  • #[property name]

  • #[city name]

  • #[city name]apartments

  • #rent

  • #multifamily

  • #3DFloorPlan
