The hashtags you should be using to create posts that sell.

Alleviate posting fatigue. Use these hashtags to create posts that sell.

OpenSky posts are your way to engage members (aka shoppers) on the daily.  A great way to keep followers coming back while alleviating posting fatigue is making sure you’re creating posts that are valuable to the member.  And a KEY part of that is leveraging hashtags to add a healthy dose of energy and excitement into the post.

Not only will these hashtags help to give you more exposure (as all hashtags do) but you’ll help shoppers get on schedule, knowing when they should come back check out your store and shop!

Most already know about #followfriday and #sale (if you’re not up to speed have a look on our previous post that give you the 101 on Hashtags), but here are a bunch of other hashtags you can use to give members a new, fun and exciting way to shop every day of the week.
