SoFly Tip #3: #Hashtags

WHAT IS A #HASHTAG? The hashtag # symbol is used before relevant keywords or phrases in Twitter or Instagram to categorize posts and make them searchable by anyone. Clicking on a hashtagged word or phrase in a specific social media platform shows you all other posts in that category. The hashtag can occur anywhere in the post - at the beginning, middle, or end - but the keyword or phrase can not have any spaces, ie: #ReadySetCertify instead of #Ready Set Certify. The last example would only garner a search for #Ready, which is not what the business intended.

SoFly Tip #2: Instagram

WHAT IS INSTAGRAM? Instagram is a fast, fun, and free app for mobile devices to host pictures. Much like Twitter, you follow a network of people and companies to interact with. You can post your picture as-is or choose from a number of creative filters and borders to emphasize your image.

SoFly Tip #1: QR Codes
