We've added lots to the RiteTag app, and the experience is the same for both Android and iOS. The big news is for everyone who is an owner or manager of Facebook pages, since each of them has an Instagram Business Account connected to it. Below is the how-to for getting your hashtags for Instagram Business Account posts, I'll also give you a fast process for getting hashtags for your Instagram Personal Account post captions and photos as well as for commenting on anyone's Instagram account - of any type.
Many will tell you: in Instagram, Twitter and Youtube - and now, Pinterest and LinkedIn as well, it’s done with hashtags.
There is no perfect hashtag to use on all posts in Instagram. In fact, if you use the same hashtag on too many posts, or even if you use the same groups of hashtags, as are typically provided by most hashtag apps, you risk being shadow-banned (your posts will not appear in Explore Pages in Instagram; you wont get followed as much as you would, if this happens).
At the very least, by not using the tool that generates hashtags specifically for your photos and captions, you miss out on most of the potential positive affects that can be garnered by always posting with a different blend of real-time engagement tested hashtags. The solution is easy, both for Instagram Business Accounts and also for Instagram Personal Accounts. Either way, you need the RiteTag (https://ritetag.com/) Mobile app. It is part of RiteTag Pro (as of this posting, currently just $49/year), which not only includes the mobile app (iOS and Android), but also the browser extension (Chrome, Firefox and Safari), and also full RiteTag site features.
Get one or more Instagram Business Accounts? Get a ready-made hashtags comment for each individual photo/caption by notification!
RiteTag now generates hashtags for your photos and captions - and you don't even need to open the app to get them!
Once you install the RiteTag mobile, you don’t even need to open the app to have iut working for you. Just install the app, let RiteTag deliver hashtags by notification after you upload photos to Instagram. This works whether you post natively in Instagram and also if you use third-party apps or desktop Instagram scheduling solutions. Due to Instagram API limitations, the notifications feature works only with Instagram Business Accounts, but can handle multiple Instagram Business Accounts.
