Hashtags & Handles

January 20, 2017

Around here we throw around the phrase “Hashtags and Handles” a lot.

This isn’t just an alliteration (although it is fun to say), it’s a strategy we like to practice within reason here at NewsON. So what do we mean when we say, “hey, don’t forget your hashtags and handles?” We’re aiming to be a part of a larger conversation. By implementing something as simple as “#” or “@” we increase our average engagement rate. Our impressions go up. We have the potential to hop on board with trending topics, discover more interesting stories, engage with new users, and expand our digital footprint.

As a small but growing company, we’re always searching for ways to make our mark and get involved with stories that matter. Using these tactics helps us reach a larger audience, and shows those that are interested that we provide stories of interest no matter where you live around the country. One of the most effective ways to engage others is to mark and mention who and what these stories are about. This method of engagement gets the conversation flowing and encourages discovery. So if you want to increase the shelf life of your tweets we highly recommend the “hashtags and handles” approach. You’d be surprised who you’ll end up talking to.
