putting the FAN in evangelism – spreading your messages by daring to share what you are a FAN of
Do you ever glance at a tweet – and then “move on” because it looks like too much hard work?
I certainly do. Often too many hashtags make a message look uninviting to me. Too hard!
Hashtags always remind me of those anti-tank obstacles you’d often see in WWII movies and documentaries – those devices designed to stop or at least delay or detour tanks.
Just as these obstacles deter tanks or other vehicles – too many #s at the start of your message can deter your reader from “getting into” your message.
Of course, #s have their advantages in allowing readers to find your messages when they search particular topics.
Many social media authorities give all sorts of hashtag advice – never use more than 2 hashtags – never use more than 3 hashtags.
I suggest that the anti-tank device analogy can help you use hashtags effectively.
