Looking for hashtags for Saint Patrick’s Day that might be good to use, but tired of seeing all the same ones and hoping to find some new ones?

Having a strong Instagram marketing strategy can help you stand out in creative ways without having to break the bank. But a strong presence on Instagram means using strong hashtags.

So what hashtags do you want to use? I recommend using a mix of hashtags of all sizes to help make sure you are growing and seen. Smaller hashtags move slower and are easy to rank in, allowing your content to grow within the smaller audience before it starts competing against some of the larger hashtag groups.

How many hashtags should you choose? The sweet spot for engagement is anywhere from 4 to 9 hashtags; but if you want to maximize your reach, you should aim to use 26 to 30 hashtags — just make sure they are all relevant to your post and to you. Don’t throw in a trending hashtag if it has nothing to do with your post simply because you want to try to get your post seen.

Your post will be seen, and it will be ignored. The complete opposite of what you’re trying to do.

So, all that said, and you’re probably looking to get some content running for Saint Patrick’s Day, right? It is right around the corner after all. So here you go: 77 hashtags of various sizes that can be used for your Saint Patrick’s Day posts. Pick and choose as many (or as few) as you like, throw in some branded hashtags, and you are (pot-o-)golden.

Micro Hashtags for Saint Patrick’s Day (100 – 1,000)

Micro hashtags are easy to rank for because not a lot of people are using them. The downside is that not a lot of people are searching for them, so if you use too many, you could accidentally restrict your own reach.

Try not to let your micro hashtags take up more than a quarter of the total hashtags you’re using.

Small Hashtags for Saint Patrick’s Day (1,000 – 10,000)

Small hashtags have a little larger following than micro hashtags, but still aren’t widely searched for. They are easy to rank for in comparison to the larger hashtags, and more people are searching for them than the micro hashtags.

Try to limit your small hashtags to no more than a quarter of your total hashtag list on any post.
