Wondering how to boost your Dubai social media reach and engagement?
Hashtags can make or break your social media posts. Think of them as an easy way to connect your Dubai social media content to a specific topic, event, theme or conversation you want to attract attention to. They make it easier to discover posts around those specific topics because hashtags aggregate all social media content with that same hashtag.
Don’t forget that content is king! good content will definitely help taking your social media to new highs!

Alternatively, if you use a hashtag on your Story, it could be included in the relevant hashtag Story, which also appears on the hashtag page.
There are 9 different type of hashtags; product/service HT’s, niche HT’s, Industry online community HT’s, seasonal/special event HT’s, location HT’s, daily HT’s, relevant phase HT’s, acronym HT’s and last but not least, emoji HT’s.
You can include up to 30 hashtags on a post, and up to 10 on a Story. No more than that though or else Instagram won’t allow you to upload the post.
