The very first type of hashtags is a Branded hashtag and these are always related to your business. These hashtags can be your business name, any tagline related to your business, campaign related to brand  or it can be as simple as the name of your product. For example your business name is “SocialHulk” than you can populate your brand on social media using – #SocialHulk

  • Community hashtags:-

The second type of Instagram hashtags are the community tags which are related to the community and these spread a message to the community. They are used to connect the like-minded users which have common interests. These hashtags are the great way to increase the followers and help to improve the SEO of the posts and it also helps in increasing your followers and your community on Instagram.
