    Hey, i'm running some accounts in diffent niches and i use at some hashtags at posts and at some i just write describtion and i cant see any difference between the growing of follower. I only see that i got more likes but the people dont follow. Do you use hashtags on your posts ?

    I use them, it costs nothing and takes literally a few seconds to set up and once you grow your account, your posts can appear in the "most popular" section of specific hashtags. I don't see why not to use them.

    You can create a whole brand for yourself using self-made hashtags. Once your account gets some traction,people will start tagging you in their photos and use your hashtags.
    They're actually used to target your audience.

    Very important when starting out. You can get quite a few followers from them, and as people have said above, it only takes a couple of seconds.

    Use them!

    This is critical. Brandable tags > Spammed tags

    hashtags are important! If you have an auto like service, hashtags can get you to the popular page and you can gain a load of followers!

    Use any hashtags in beginning but as you grow you should stop the spammable hashtags and start using one related to your niche or name, it will not only help gain followers from explore page, but people will remember you by it, and they start tagging and using the hashtag and it grows = your account grows
