How to find Instagram Reels hashtags to incorporate into your captions

Search

Instagram’s search function is known to benefit creators and brands in more ways than one. 

To conduct hashtag research, simply type your keyword into the search bar and click on the ‘Tags’ tab. From here, you will see the most popular hashtags used in relation to your keyword, with the number of posts containing that hashtag next to it. 

For example:

Competitor research

Without blatantly copying them, it is wise to look to your competitors when putting together your list of Instagram Reels hashtags. You are most likely aware of the top performing brands and creators within your industry, so take a look at their top performing Reels and make note of the hashtags used and in what way they are being used. 

Other social networks 

Taking trending hashtags from other social networks – particularly TikTok – that haven’t yet caught on over on Reels is a great way to skyrocket content to the top of the trending list.

Social listening

Making use of social listening tools is vital if you want valuable information about what your target audience wants from your brand. What’s great is that this data can be applied to hashtags too.
