Hashtags seem to be #inescapable. Like them or loathe them, they are a feature of modern life and are here to stay. But are they useful for you as an author? Can hashtags for writers boost your writing efforts on social media?
I recently explored social media for authors in-depth. However, hashtags for writers is a subject deserving closer treatment because choosing the right hashtag can make your tweet, Facebook post, or instagram go further.
You’ll know that I’m no believer in ‘magic bullet marketing’. If you’re expecting hashtags to do the legwork of marketing your book or writing alone, you’re bound to be disappointed. However, I do feel they can play a valuable, supplemental role in your book marketing.
So what do you need to know about hashtags for writers?
