38 Hashtag Marketing Strategies

From Nostalgic Travel Campaigns to Promotional Resolution Posters

— August 9, 2014 — Marketing
There are a number of ways to go about drafting hashtag marketing strategies, which is something this collection looks to expose by pinpointing some of the most memorable examples. While the hashtag has been incorporated into marketing campaigns for some time, we're still seeing it as a prevalent way to connect with a consumer base without requiring too much effort.

One of the best aspects of hashtag marketing strategies is that they place the responsibility in the hands of the consumer; we're seeing a distinct rise in the number of candid responses that consumers are willing to share because doing so via social media offers a certain level of comfort. Whether you find these hashtag marketing strategies great or gaudy, it's clear they're effective approaches nonetheless.
