Getting Noticed Online Improves Your Freelance Career

Like any business, freelancers need to compete in the online space in order to get clients and grow their careers. The freelance world has been increasing in popularity over the years and therefore has become a more competitive space. Understanding how to get noticed in this space will only have benefits for the long term success of your career. One way to get noticed is by using hashtags.

What Are Hashtags?

By now most people know what is a hashtag is and how it works, but here is a quick recap just in case.

Hashtags create links and categories through social media. When you use the hashtag symbol in front of a word or phrase like this; #socialmedia, you will see that that word or phrase will become active. It will be a different colour (like a url link) and if you click on it, you will be connected with everyone else that has used that same hashtag. Hashtags are like keywords but a little more obvious and simple to use. They are very popular to use on Twitter and Instagram.

Why You Should Use Hashtags

As explained, hashtags operate like keywords and they connect you to everyone else using or searching that hashtag. The searching part is what is key here. People are no longer just Googling to do research and to seek out information, they are also using hashtags. For example, if I were to search the hashtag #freelancer, I will start seeing a feed of everyone that has used that hashtag (they are most likely freelancers that are using this). From there I can connect with them and find out more about them by looking at their personal feeds if they are public. It should not take long to figure out that this is a good way to get noticed. We are living in the era of conscious consumerism. This means that people are doing extensive research before purchasing a product or service. This can include your potential clients so using hashtags wisely will get you in front of your target audience that is online doing research before they purchase.

Tips On Using Hashtags

The number one tip you should take away from using hashtags is to use as many as possible. The more hashtags you use, the more you get in front of an audience. Bear in mind, when you use them however, you want it to seem natural. See the do’s and don’ts of using hashtags.

There can be limits as well. Instagram for example has a max of 30. Go over that and your text won’t show up. It is also good practice to separate your hashtags from text by either using three or four horizontal periods or adding your hashtags in the comments right after your post. Because of Twitter’s character limits, you normally only have enough room for 3 or 4 after your post, so use them wisely.

In order to make it easy and remember which hashtags to use, keep a file on your mobile phone either in your drive or notes that has a list of your hashtags and then just copy and paste them each time for a fast and easy process.
