Week #3 – Breathe New Life into Old Instagram Posts With New Hashtags

Instagram wants you to post images and short videos, in the moment, from your mobile device.

By adding new hashtags to your older posts, you may rejuvenate them.

If you had an image that didn’t get the attention you felt it deserved, or if you didn’t use all the hashtags you’re using on more recent posts, you can still add those new hashtags to older posts. As long people are searching for those hashtags, your old posts may enjoy new attention and even be Liked now.

How To Add new Hashtags To Your Old Instagram Posts (by iPhone):

First select an older post then scroll to the bottom.
Tap the 3 dots …
You have 4 choices:
Delete – to delete the entire text and type from scratch
Edit – to edit the text you already have
Share – to share on other Social Media accounts and also edit the text you already have
Cancel – to return and do nothing
Choose Edit then add the new hashtags to the text and save.

Bonus Tip: You don’t need a huge Instagram following to get Likes on your Instagram posts. If you know how to use hashtags and choose the hashtags people search for, you can increase your Likes by many and even earn more followers.

This begs the question, are you using hashtags that people use most?
