It is very important to make sure all of the hashtags you use are terms you want your brand to be identified with.

By using general terms relevant to your content and the audience you are trying to reach, you will be able to target them more affectively. People often times follow hashtags that are linked to their interest. Therefore, a company should be using terms that associate with their brand and content. For example, a boutique should be using hashtags that are linked to fashion, clothes, purse, jewelry, shoes, brands that they sell, and ect. These hashtags will allow the post to reach a larger audience.
