We all know that using hashtags on Instagram is a great way to promote organic growth. So you do some research and come up with a hashtag strategy to maximize the reach of your content. The problem is that finding the perfect hashtags is hard work. Even worse, it's pretty time consuming too.
You learn that to have an effective hashtag strategy on Instagram, you'll need to:
- Find hundreds of unique hashtags to use that are in your niche
- Collect data for each hashtag to ensure they have a desirable post count and average engagement
- Build sets of up to 30 relevant hashtags to use for all of your posts
- Make sure you aren't using any banned hashtags that will get your content flagged
- Double check and not overuse any hashtag and be penalized by the Instagram algorithm
- Spend time copy and pasting hashtags on every post you make in the comments
- Monitor the reach of your posts, make sense of the results and adjust your tactics
It's hard to get all of this right and it doesn't leave you time to focus on creating great content. Until now...

Let's take a deep dive into how Curate solves all of your hashtag problems.
Instantly gain insight into all of your hashtags
No more are the days of tracking your favorite hashtags in a spreadsheet or maintaining lists on your phone. Since Curate is integrated with Instagram it already knows which hashtags you care about. Immediately see your top hashtags, how much you use each hashtag, which you use together, how many people post to each hashtag and more.
Save time planning your posts by quickly selecting up to 30 at a time
Choosing the hashtags for your content can be such a pain that people often make just a handful of lists and just cycle between the same sets over and over. That really isn't doing your content justice. With Curate you can select up to 30 hashtags in seconds and use tools to build them from groups, other posts or based on their post count for your hashtag ladder strategies.
Organize your lists of related hashtags to use
Another tricky part about managing your hashtags is organizing groups of related hashtags. Often it makes sense for a hashtag to be in more than one related group but then it makes keeping track of it a mess. With Curate, any hashtag can be in any number of groups that you can use for your particular hashtag strategy. When you are dealing with thousands of possible hashtags for your niche, staying organized is key.
Plan ahead and schedule your hashtags in advance
Creating your posts ahead of time and scheduling your content is a norm of any serious Instagram user. Never before was it possible to also schedule your hashtags ahead of time and have them automatically be added to your Instagram posts. Don't manually log in and add them or copy/paste them anymore. Curate handles it all so you don't have to.
Easily compare how your posts measure up against your average
If you use the Instagram app to view your insights (things like engagement and reach) then you know how hard it is to keep track of all of the numbers. If your post gets 2,493 impressions in the first 5 hours, is that good, bad, normal? Curate makes it simple by giving you a range of visual indicators on each statistic so you know which posts are working at just a glance.
Track how your whole account is performing
Understanding which hashtags and posting strategies work and sticking to them is critical for small businesses to grow. Curate provides visual graphs for understanding how hashtag usage is affecting the big picture. Viewing your Instagram account's performance over time and comparing it to past strategies is what allows you to get better and keep up with the ever evolving social media landscape.
Using hashtags is one of the most tedious but most effective routines for active Instagram users. It plays a significant role in content discovery, community contributions, branded activities and audience engagement.
Start to embrace changes to the Instagram algorithm instead of fearing them. Curate allows users to employ the perfect strategy for their brand.
Don't let the struggle of managing your hashtags hold you back 🤬
