5 Ways to Master Tagging on Social Media

Updated: Mar 19

Is it just me, or are you tired of your timeline being flooded with social media posts that aren't relevant to you or your business?

Instead of getting upset, I'll just assume that people are misinformed about social media tagging etiquette, and I feel compelled to share proper ways to master leveraging tagging.

Tagging with intent can amplify engagement and fuel meaningful connections, but it requires a little finesse.

Here are 5 strategies I share with my students for tagging etiquette:

1. Purposeful Tagging: Avoid random tagging. Tag employees, support team members, or relevant individuals who contribute to the post's content.

2. Strategic Timing: Tag sparingly to prevent appearing spammy. Reserve tagging for instances when you genuinely seek opinions, reference someone, or wish to follow up on a conversation.

3. Quality Over Quantity: Over-tagging diminishes post value. Focus on tagging select individuals thoughtfully, rather than inundating the post with tags for attention.

4. Respect Boundaries: Don't tag excessively for attention, as it can lead to being blocked. The best practice is to tag individuals when sharing someone else's content, maintaining respect for their privacy and preferences.

5. Selective Visibility: While tagging can boost visibility, tagging too many people can dilute its effectiveness. Choose your tags wisely, prioritizing relevance over quantity.

If you follow my social media tagging etiquettes, you can harness the power of tagging without risking annoyance or alienation. Tag with intent, respect, and strategic foresight to maximize the benefits for both yourself and your audience.

How often do you get tagged to post?

  • 0%1-4 times a day

  • 0%5-9 times a day

  • 0%Over 10 times day

Remember, social media is supposed to be a safe place to socialize. Tag your tribe, and in return, you'll promote your social media community.

If you need help with social media promotion, schedule a strategic marketing session with me and let's put a plan together that will work for your business.
