What are Hashtags & why use them?
We see them everywhere these Hashtags, but what are they?
Most of the people I speak to ask the same questions…
Those I hear most are:
- What are Hashtags?
- How do you create one?
- Why would you create one?
- Who decides what they are?
- Who owns them?
- What’s the point of them?
Generally at the end they will say, I don’t get them, it’s just all too difficult.
Does this sound like you?
If it is, then this short, 30 minute recorded workshop is for you.
Hashtags if used well can be extremely powerful tools for bringing people together, connecting, networking, finding like minded people, engaging with people about something you have in common, building your personal community.
Like all things, Hashtags are a tool. It’s a way of making sense of the huge amount of data out there and homing in on the bits of information that matter to you. If that’s of interest, then please do find out more…Hashtags are here to stay!
