There are many important things to think about when growing your Instagram profile, and one of these things is your hashtag strategy.
Hashtags are definitely still an important part of your Instagram growth, even if you think that they are outdated, and oversaturated.
Yes, there are going to be plenty of hashtags within your industry that are overused that you might not want to bring on board, but at the end of the day, whether you like it or not, you have to include hashtags on your content if you want to do well.
The trouble is, it’s difficult to find the right ones, especially if you aren’t getting outside help.
There are companies out there that can help you with this, but not all of them are legit, and not all of them have your best interests at heart.
Let’s review one in particular and determine whether you should use them for your hashtag strategy or not.
Hashtags Expert is a company who claims to be able to help you find the right hashtags for your Instagram profile using intelligent algorithms. They say that these can be used to find trending hashtags, so that you can save time.
We think that you could probably do better.
Hashtags Expert is a bit of an enigma to us, because it definitely isn’t the worst hashtag generator in the industry.
It definitely has a lot of features that other companies out there don’t, which is only going to be to your advantage, but there are of course downsides to this company as well, which at the end of the day we think are dealbreakers.
When it comes to anything to do with safety, we have to consider it a dealbreaker, because the last thing you need is ruining your reputation online, just because you used an average hashtag generator.
We will talk about it a little bit more at the end of this review, but we think that these guys have a low legitimacy rating, as well as safety scores, meaning that they probably aren’t going to be ideal for your hashtag strategy, and you could easily do better elsewhere.
Again, they definitely aren’t the worst, they just aren’t covering what we need them to cover in order to be the kind of company we can recommend.
- Secure Site: Hashtags Expert has remembered to include a basic level of security on their website, in the form of HTTPS. This means that you will be able to safely share any personal information you want to through their website without worrying about it being stolen or sold to a third party. Yes this is a good measure to have in place, but it doesn’t really mean anything because the majority of websites these days include it.
- Real Reviews: Hashtags Expert does appear to be have legitimate reviews on their website, and you can also find legitimate reviews of their services on third-party websites at the same time. Of course, this definitely adds to the credibility because companies that are able to provide potential clients with authentic, genuine reviews about their services are going to bring them one step closer to signing up. We are also pleased to say that the reviews, even on third-party websites, aren’t exactly negative, but they are average at best, and indicate that you could probably do better elsewhere.
- Visible Pricing: Hashtags Expert aren’t exactly forthcoming about their pricing on their website, which is a concern to us. They only have a tab on their home page where they say you can download their hashtag generator, so that you can quickly get started with them. Of course, before you download anything, you will want to know how much it’s going to cost you so not having this available before you register or download anything is definitely an issue for us. Companies out there that have a good reputation with their clients and care about their accountability with them will definitely cover this part of their service and website, so the fact that these guys aren’t willing to be upfront and honest with how much you are going to pay for their services should make you worry a little bit.
- No Information: Hashtags Expert does have a blog, which we imagine is going to include a little bit of information about this service and how it works, but there definitely isn’t enough for us to go on if we were to be a potential client interested in signing up for their services. Ideally, they need a page that talks about the team behind the scenes, as well as a few FAQs and an ‘about page’, so that you can get to know them a little bit more intimately before you get started. A blog is helpful at times, but it certainly doesn’t breakdown the company in the way that you need.
So, all in all we don’t think that Hashtags Expert is all that bad, but we do think that it has low legitimacy and safety scores when it comes to its features for Instagram, which is why it needs to be used with an abundance of caution.
If you would rather avoid a company like this and have high expectations and standards for your Instagram profile, then you might want to check out other tools on the market like Task Ant, which has much more relevant hashtag recommendations for you to make the most of.
At the end of the day, the higher quality your Instagram profile is in general, the better you are going to do, so it is best to avoid companies like this, and go for ones that are going to do a much better job taking care of your hashtag strategy.
