Instagram for the Plus Size Babe - A Hashtag Guide

Yesterday I had a super long to do list, and this blog entry was on it. I’ve been gradually building my new website (which should be launching in the next month), helping customers, and learning about making every minute I spend on Instagram worth something. This, as opposed to meaninglessly scrolling throughout the image and video-based social media app.

 

As you folks all know by now, one of the many things I do is plus size modeling. Not long ago, about 2 months to be exact, I took my non-existent Instagram account and started sharing my work. Brianne, my incredible coach, recommended that I start posting my photos on Instagram, and focus on building my visibility and followers.

During the beginning stage, I went in totally blind. I didn’t know a damn thing about gaining more followers, with the exception that I should use hashtags. My first few posts didn’t get a ton of traction even though the photos were incredible. Despite that, they were getting lost amongst a sea of photos in the hashtags I was using.

After a few weeks, I learned that the trick to getting noticed was not by using big flashy hashtags. Instead, it would be by using hashtags… with less than 500,000 posts. My photo likes and ranking exploded.

For the last month, I’ve worked tirelessly on a list of hashtags perfect for the plus size babe. Plus size babes who have yet to have a huge following. Although many of us aspire to be like the super visible models with followers counting over 10,000, mostly we have a few thousand followers. Still, myself and all the incredible plus size women I know are immensely determined to be seen and make an impact.

Listed below, we have hashtags with less than 500,000 posts. Most of them have less than 250,000 posts, working even better for those of us with followers on the smaller end. These keywords will allow your photos to rank higher and actually be seen by other plus size models, regular plus size women, and your target audience:
