“Daily hashtags are the drink specials of social media.” – Emily Copp, Hootsuite
Most likely, many of you are familiar with social media hashtags like #MotivationMonday, #TBT, and #WomanCrushWednesday. But, how likely are you to actually use these hashtags and include them on your social media posts?
Naturally, you can’t just add these hashtags to any post, the content that you’re sharing has to be relevant and apply to the hashtag you intend to use. And when used correctly, daily hashtags have the power to up your social media game and to increase the overall reach of your posts or tweets.
So, how can you as a flexible workspace operator or manager use these hashtags to maximize the potential reach and engagement of your content, and to increase your workspace’s visibility? The list below will provide you with some examples for a few of the most commonly used daily hashtags from Monday to Friday.
As you can probably deduce from the name, #MotivationMonday is used to motivate your followers by sharing tips, feel good stories, or motivational quotes.
As a flexible workspace manager, you can use this hashtag to motivate your members to start the week off strong, to come into the space, and to not let the Monday blues get to them. Take a look at the tweet below from Grind Spaces:
Oh, we’ve all been there feeling a bit blue now that the weekend is over and you have a full week ahead of work and new challenges. Usually people use this hashtag to fight back the Monday blues, and they do so by sharing funny memes, gifs or pictures of cute animals, or why coffee is such an important part of their Monday routine.
This hashtag is perfect for you to use when you want to share some industry insights or some general workspace advice. It could be a tip for your workspace users on how to best take advantage of your space and services, or it could be a tip to fellow workspace operators on what you’ve found works best in terms of design, networking, or overall workspace topics.
Take a look at the tweet below from Turnstone to get an idea of how to use this hashtag:
