How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers | Black Sheep Strategy- Social Media | Scoop.it

A simple guide to understanding how to effectively use Twitter hashtags in marketing and how you shouldn't! [note mg]

 

Every time we host live webinars (and as this long list suggests, that is quite often), quite a few attendees get confused about what to do with the hashtag we provide. What is it? What does it do? How do you create one? Let me explain!

 

What is a hashtag?

 

A Twitter hashtag is simply a keyword phrase, spelled out without spaces, with a pound sign (#) in front of it. For example, #inboundchat and #ILoveChocolate are both hashtags.

 

What does a hashtag do?

 

A Twitter hashtag ties the conversations of different users into one stream, which you can find by searching the hastag in Twitter Search or by using a third-party monitoring tool such as HootSuite.

Coca Cola Content 2020 Part One

The media landscape is a very different beast today than it was even 5 years ago. Then agency-led television commercials dominated how we channel our marketing. The very fact you are reading this here proves that things have changed. Coca Cola have always been at the forefront of innovation. In this video Jonathan Mildenhall, Vice-President, Global Advertising Strategy and Creative Excellence at The Coca-Cola Company is the person responsible for leading global creative vision and strategy for the Company's portfolio of global brands.

 

In this video he explains how Coke will leverage the opportunities in the new media landscape and transform one-way storytelling into dynamic storytelling hoping to add value and significance to peoples lives.

Just because I love everything Coca Cola does!

Grizzel Fonseca's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:05 AM

I agree with Coca Cola about moving away for creative excellence to content excellence. They have developed their brand and established it well in the world. They are looking at ways to stay on top of other competitors; it is very smart of them to make sure their consumers are happy with the product and how they can connect with audiences. By creating the brand and establishing the brand does not mean long term profit or customer loyalty. It is how the business continues to market the brand that results in customer loyalty and profit. Coca Cola that identify this and made it their focus to create a strong customer loyalty with their audience; making sure the consumer shall never drift away from the brand and company.
