A Great Way To Easily Find The Best Instagram Hashtags

As a blogger and a content creator, I’m always interested and looking for tools that can help make all of my blogging tasks easier and in some cases faster. Especially when it comes to social media.

I’m not a huge fan of social media but I realize as a blogger it’s a necessary evil to promote my blog and interact with my followers. Half of the battle is deciding what content to post and the other half is creating the content.

Instagram is no exception. In fact, Instagram is where I struggle the most. Instagram is a must for a beauty blogger because of how visual it is and how popular it is for makeup, skin, and hair care lovers. But it can take a lot of effort to not only post to my feed every day but also create fresh content and then figure out what hashtags to use to promote it.

Thank goodness for Tailwind’s Hashtag Finder 2.0. You may be thinking Tailwind’s what?

You may have heard of Tailwind and know it as the tool that most bloggers use to automatically pin to their Pinterest boards. But did you know that you can also use Tailwind to automatically post to your Instagram feed? Well, you can. And when you do you get access to Tailwind’s Hashtag Finder 2.0.

Now Tailwind has had a Hashtag Finder for a while but they recently gave it a facelift. So now it’s even better and more helpful than it was before.

I use Tailwind to pin to Pinterest on a daily basis and it is a huge time saver. So when I heard about their new Hashtag Finder I just had to give it a try and see how it worked for me. Here’s how it works.

Sign up

You can do this by using my affiliate link. You'll have the option of selecting the free plan which has limited features or one of the three paid plans.

Create your posts

You can upload multiple images at once or do them one at a time. It’s up to you. Once your images are uploaded then you can create your single image posts.

As you type your caption, the hashtag finder goes to work. Suggestions appear based on what you’re saying in your caption and the hashtags refresh as you’re typing. It’s really cool. If you don’t like the hashtag suggestions you can shuffle them or even quickly dismiss ones that don’t quite fit.

Another great thing about the hashtag finder is the hashtags are color-coded and you can hover over them so you can quickly determine which are more popular and would be best for expanding the reach of your post.

One more thing, you can also create and save lists of your favorite and best performing hashtags so you can easily reuse them again and again.

Schedule your posts

Just like with Pinterest, Tailwind will create a Smart Schedule so you’re posting during the times your audience is most likely to be looking at their feeds which can help increase your post engagement and attract more followers.

Once you've scheduled your post you can also use the preview feature to see how it will look in your feed. If you don't like the way posts look next to each other you have the option of dragging and dropping them to another spot in your schedule.

Not convinced it’s that easy and will really save you time in posting to Instagram? Then check out the video below from Tailwind to see the Hashtag Finder 2.0 in action.


  1. I just used the Hashtag Finder in Tailwind yesterday for my Instagram post that is going up on Friday and I have heard great things about the results that the hashtag finder gives. Hopefully it works!

    Great post! x


    1. I hope it does too! How was your experience using the Hashtag Finder?

  2. I recently discovered the amazing power of hashtags! I hadn't heard of Tailwind though, so this is great! Thank you for sharing! If you're not using hashtags, you're losing a lot of potential likers/followers

    1. Yes, hashtags are key when it comes to getting exposure on Instagram. It can be so hard to find the right ones though. Give Tailwind a try and see if it helps.
