How To Create A Hashtag: 10 Tips For Success

Though they’ve only been around for about a decade, hashtags have become a widely-used feature on nearly every major social media platform, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Hashtags serve two primary functions for users: (1) they help users find content related to a specific topic, and (2) they make it easier for users to find others with mutual interests.

Today, brands are using hashtags to promote their name and advertise specific products on social media. Just as hashtags help users find content related to a term or phrase, they make branded content more searchable and discoverable online. Hashtags are an important part of social media marketing strategies that should not be overlooked.

FTC Endorsement Guidelines For 2017 [Infographic]

FTC Endorsement Guidelines For 2017 [Infographic]

The Updated 2017 FTC Endorsement Guidelines: What Brands Must Know For Sponsorships On Social Media & With Influencers [Infographic]

The FTC's new endorsement guidelines for sponsored content rests on a simple assumption: consumers are likely to react differently to recommendations that come from trusted friends (or social media stars) than from people who receive compensation to endorse a product. To that end, the FTC is attempting to create more transparency in sponsored social media content by placing more onus on brands (and in some cases, on influencers too) to openly divulge the relationship between companies and the digital stars who recommend their products or services.

While the FTC now offers more guidance on exactly what it expects proper disclosure to look and/or sound like—the agency even published a simple Q&A to address marketers' basic concerns—the ever-changing nature of social media makes establishing a set of clear-cut rules nearly impossible. Instead, the FTC offers a number of guidelines that brands can follow to convey a reasonable degree of transparency to digital media/social media consumers.

Based on our experience developing sponsored social media content for global brands, we've identified what we believe to be the most important FTC endorsement rules below.
