Just be careful not to overdo it. The previously mentioned article from Hootsuite states, “the most common number of hashtags to use on Instagram is between 1 and 3.” You do not want to use too many hashtags, but there is no perfect number. You may have to test a few different combinations to see what works for your business.
If you want to use many hashtags but don’t want them you appear in your main post, you can publish them in a separate comment. This is a great way to add trending hashtags to a post while keeping it from looking too crowded or overwhelming.
Hashtags are also a great tool for researching and targeting niche audiences. You can look at which hashtags are popular with a particular audience segment and then create posts associated with those topics.
