Twitter is one of the busiest and most noisy social platforms out there nowadays. Getting heard is often an issue, especially for new businesses or individuals with non-established followings.
I’ve compiled a little list below in regards to what hashtags to use when posting for each day of the week. By boosting your posts in this way, it’s guaranteed to help foster greater engagement while getting your tweet noticed!
Monday – #MondayMotivation
Monday is the first day of the working week and so, naturally, Twitter is jam-packed with content from businesses and individuals who are looking to pick up potentially tired and jaded colleague attitudes. At the time of writing this post, #MondayMotivation has had over 44,000 tweets! Our post, alone, was up for only two minutes before receiving two favourites and a retweet:
I find that #MondayMotivation is a great excuse to push out motivational/inspirational quotes as well as tips and tricks to entice and drive the people who view it.
Tuesday – #TipTuesday
My hashtag of choice for Tuesday has got to be #TipTuesday. #TipTuesday is an excellent hashtag to use when you are pushing out tips/tricks of even a blog post! Looking at Twitter’s search feature, tweets containing this hashtag are very popular and so using it alongside good and engaging content is a sure-fire way to boost your reach and attract more interaction.
Wednesday – #WednesdayWisdom
Probably the most obvious one on this list, #WednesdayWisdom is one of the more popular hashtags I have come across, but the effect it has on your posts speaks for itself. Adding #WednesdayWisdom to a post with great, informative content can be a really effective way to boost your growth on Twitter. Comparing to our first quote-style post which received no engagement, our most recent #WednesdayWisdom effort did a lot better:
Thursday – #ThrowbackThursday / #TBT
#ThrowbackThursday is an excellent hashtag to use universally. Not only does it perform exceptionally well on Twitter, but also on Instagram! This hashtag is excellent for cross-platform promotion and allows you to increase your engagement and interaction even more. Some great content for #TBT would, again, be quotes from historical figures, possibly a look back to when you or your company were in their early days. If you’re an individual or public figure, photographs from your childhood or teenage years also go down a real treat!
Friday – #FollowFriday
It’s the end of the week – what better way to end it than attempt to increase your follower base! Tens of thousands of Twitter users worldwide use this hashtag and actively search through Twitter to find a user they’d like to follow. The beauty of this hashtag is that it can be added to just about anything! There are no limits to its use and the engagement on it is just as effective as others mentioned in this article.
Saturday – #SocialSaturday
Finally the weekend, but don’t get too comfy! #SocialSaturday, like #FollowFriday, is a fantastic universal hashtag. Pushing out content on the weekend is just as important as it is through the week. It’s the weekend, people are relaxing and scrolling through Twitter at their leisure so take advantage of that! Push out FREE engaging content and throw on this hashtag to boost its reach!
Sunday – #SelfieSunday
The last hashtag to use throughout your weekly posting schedule has got to be #SelfieSunday. Who doesn’t love a good selfie?! You’re out and about, maybe you’re away somewhere nice and want to take a snap and show off your exciting weekend plans. #SelfieSunday is also an excellent way to give your followers a chance to take a peek behind the curtain. It’s a more personal way to engage with your followers and build a more trusting relationship with them!
While I was doing some hashtag research for Digital Media Edge, I came across a lot of excellent hashtags relating to social media and marketing so here are some notable mentions for use on any day of the week:
