One way to expand your reach this holiday season while driving traffic to your online business is with hash tags. Hash tag's essentially are used as "search engines" to help users find subjects they're interested. This is a great way to provide your readers with content, offer promotions and deals if you’re an online clothing store, women's boutique or a hair stylist. Hash tags have been known to not only create trending, popular topics on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, but it has been widely used for businesses to raise brand awareness.
