MWH 161 : Two Current Instagram Myths Busted

two Current Instagram Myths Busted

It is my mission to always share with you the latest Instagram and online marketing strategies because I know how noisy it can be online with so many different resources floating around. As a mum with hustle, I know that you don't need to be wasting time on B.S. strategies!


I cannot wait to demystify some myths that are currently floating around being preached as truth regarding Instagram. When listening to this episode, keep in mind that your strategy on Instagram should always come down to your mission and your audience.

1. Hashtags

The myth here is that you shouldn't be using hashtags at all… So wrong! You could say I'm a little hashtag #obsessed. I have an entire course dedicated to growing a business using hashtags because they do amazing things on IG (like helping you reach your soul mate followers!).

Key Points I Discussed:

How many hashtags should you actually use?

  • Use 30 hashtags because that's the maximum amount Instagram allows.

Where is the best place to put your hashtags?

  • In the comments section!

2. Caption Length

The myth here is that you shouldn't be using a caption at all… and this is false! If you're on Instagram to build the know-like-trust factor with your audience, you've got to show up with a caption.

Key Points I Discussed:

Why should you be writing a caption?
What should your caption length actually be?

  • Mix it up!
  • Write some short captions.
  • Share some longer blog type captions.

How do longer captions help you be rewarded by the algorithm?
