Autumn Hashtags: Maximizing Your Exposure On Instagram

Fall is one of the most beautiful and colorful times of the year, making Instagram a hot spot for creatives to showcase their talents among the colors. I get it, you want more eyes on your photos and need autumn hashtags to get them seen.

Here is the deal, autumn hashtags are great BUT you also want to be targeting pages that will re-post your account during the fall as well. Travel hashtags do help in getting your photos seen by other people, but using a hashtag for a brand and getting them to re-post your content can help with a lot of new followers.

For hashtag blocks, you can use 30 and I recommend putting them as the first comment after you post your photo. Additionally, you can tag up to 20 accounts in your photo. I recommend really thinking about who would really re-post your content. For example, if you are shooting a flat lay with coffee and leaves, @dametraveler is not going to re-post it. BUT, @dametravelerfoodie just may. 

You really need to think about the autumn hashtags and photo tags you plan to use and make sure they really fit the bill, otherwise you are taking up space for a company that it would be better suited for. So be honest with yourself AND your content in not wasting your tags. 

Below I have narrowed down a variety of fall photo types with autumn hashtag blocks you can use for each. Additionally, I have put the pages you should tag for those specific photo types for the best chance of being featured (although I will never guarantee it – but it is worth the shot).

I use a mix of autumn hashtags in varying sizes, hashtags that work with the photo content and re-post account hashtags. There are 30 hashtags in each block and to make things easy for YOU, feel free to just copy my hashtag blocks and save them in your phone in the notes section or just paste directly to Instagram. 

Please note: Instagram is a fickle beast and hashtags don’t always work, this is merely a guide of what you can use. Just note that we do not control the algorithm and each day is different. 

Pro tip: If you are on mobile and cannot copy from your phone, copy the hashtag block from your desktop and then paste them into a Facebook post and change the settings so only you can see the post. Then you can go back to this hidden post on your profile via your mobile and click “edit” and from there just copy and paste into your phone or Instagram.

Autumn Hashtags: Getting the BEST Exposure for your Photos on the GRAM!

Epic Landscape Shots

The epic fall shots with lush colors do so well on Instagram. In fact, tis the season of the photographer. This is the one time of the year that you will find all these stunning hues of reds, oranges and yellows working together in abundance. This is also an excellent time to target main re-post pages like @beautifuldestinations, @townandcountry, @countryliving, @anthropologie, @10best @passportbyforbes, etc – stunning fall photos perform really well!

Please note that re-post pages often require you to use their hashtags for a re-post. I will include the popular ones at the bottom of the page. You will need to include them in your block of 30 autumn hashtags, but only where they fit. 

Autumn Hashtags

The photo above was shot in New England, Vermont to be exact,  so I chose to utilize a mixture of autumn hashtags, color hashtags, New England hashtags, Vermont hashtags, travel hashtags, and landscape hashtags.

Autumn Hashtags

Flatlays 

Fallflat lays are so cozy and relevant. The nice thing about creating flatlays for autumn is that you can use a variety of props and colors and they tend to do really well on Instagram if styled properly. The thing about flatlays is that they are all so different. For this section I will be focusing on the two popular types: travel and coffee. The autumn hashtag blocks will be slightly different.

With the photo above, there was a lot to look at despite its simplicity. The coziness of the scarf and hot coffee downplay the loosely crocheted sweater and white nail polish. This flat lay looks like a morning session for planning. The hashtag blocks used are autumn hashtags, coffee hashtags, flatlay hashtags, boss babe hashtags, etc.

Cozy Photos

autumn hashtags

This style of photo is very popular for both autumn and winter months. After all, the weather cools down, we spend more time indoors with our loved ones and you can really only enjoy a fire when its chilly. 

Looking at hashtags for this photo, I went with autumn, family, cozy, socks, etc. I would stay away from “feet” or you may find an increase in fetish requests.

Popular Re-post accounts and their hashtags

@beautifuldestinations – #beautifuldestinations

@townandcountry – #veryTandC

@anthropologie – #myanthropologie 

@Travelandleisure – #tlpicks

@cntraveler – #IamaTraveler

 

With these examples and the respective hashtag blocks, this should get you well on your way to using hashtags for your fall photos. Just as a word of advice, unless your photo fits the example exactly, down to location (if one was selected above), I would alter them to fit your photo. These are just examples. 

Sure, plenty of you will have exact photos like these, just remember if they are similar to pay attention. If the photo looks the same but is in Vermont and you are in Oregon, you need to swap out the Vermont hashtags and do the research for Oregon ones.
