Day-of-the-Week #Hashtag Recommendations

Drive higher engagements every day of the week.

As you might know, hashtags are a word or phrase preceded by the symbol # that classifies or categorizes the accompanying text (ex: #MadeWithRipl). They can be added to your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter posts to add searchability and visibility to users looking for posts related to those specific hashtags.

However, knowing which #hashtags you should use, when they make sense (or don't), and how many are too many can be confusing. To simplify this problem, we've assembled this quick guide to help you utilize hashtags every day you post on social media. There are many different hashtags for each day, but here are a few popular ones to consider.

Monday Hashtags
Consider using #MarketingMonday to share about your latest marketing practices, #MondayMemories to spark conversations about a favorite business moment from your past, or the every-popular #MCM to highlight an inspirational gentleman who helps power your small business to success.

Tuesday Hashtags
Try adding #TechTuesday to showcase a special new app that's making your business more efficient, #TransformationTuesday to demonstrate any progress-based development in your company, or #TopicTuesday to share your thoughts on a particular topic related to your industry.

Wednesday Hashtags
By mid-week, you might use #Women2Follow to bring attention to a strong female leader in your industry, #WisdomWednesday to share a key insight you've recently learned, or the equally-popular #WCW to highlight an inspirational woman who helps power your small business to success.

Thursday Hashtags
Share a post with #ThrowbackThursday (or #TBT) to celebrate a great moment from the beginnings of your business, #ThursDate to announce a special meeting or date on your calendar, or #ThankfulThursday to show gratitude for your treasured customers.

Friday Hashtags
To celebrate the end of the week, use #FeelGoodFriday to share something positive about your industry, #FridayReads to drive followers to a book or blog you find helpful, or #FollowFriday to shine a spotlight on another account you follow and find inspirational.

Saturday Hashtags
Consider using #SocialSaturday to share how you're connecting with your community on the weekend, #ShoutoutSaturday to give a special employee or customers some appreciation, or #SalesSaturday to highlight a special offer or discount you have available.

Sunday Hashtags
Try adding #SelfieSunday to show a behind-the-scenes shot of you and/or your team, #SundayFunday to show a fun way to use your products or services, or #StartupSunday to call attention to your small business startup.


Good luck using these hashtags—and many others—on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter posts to drive higher visibility and engagement. We can't wait to see the results!
