Announcing Hashtag Support for Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook

Social Media Marketing
User Generated Content (UGC)


Hashtags are loved by both – users and brands. Today, we are excited to announce the support for hashtags on multiple networks – Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.  Hashtags have always played a critical role in content discovery and sharing for social media users and extending reach for social media marketers. Besides the fact that they are supported by all major social networks, what makes them important is for digital and social media marketers, they have become invaluable tool for every marketing campaign to target the right audience that is genuinely interested in their brand. Today’s social media marketers are using hashtags not only for pushing brand content, but increasingly using it for generating user content and driving conversations.  However, this valuable marketing asset is currently staying within the social networks and has shortest possible lifespan unless it becomes viral. Many of those photos, videos and text posts can genuinely help brands to further their marketing cause, if they are used where they matter the most, in brand’s digital marketing.

Now with ReadyPulse platform, brands can identify the best hashtagged content and use them in their digital marketing campaigns (web, email, blog, e-Commerce, social networks, mobile, and in-store).
