Popular Twitter Hashtags for Kindle Book Authors

twitter-kindle-hashtags-robbi-gunter

On Twitter, the pound sign, also known at the hashtag turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organize content and track discussion topics based on those keywords. When you use a hashtag with your Tweet, it automatically places it in the associated category. The reason to use hashtags is to connect your Tweet with the type of audience that would benefit from your information. It is also a way to target a specific group of users that may be interested in buying your products, in this case, your books.

According to the Twitter company page, there are 288 million monthly active users and 500 million Tweets are sent each day. It’s a great way to contact people that would buy your Kindle book.

It is generally recommended that you use 2 hashtags with each of your Tweets. According to surveys on the subject, you will get the highest level of response doing this. Too many hashtags and people will be turned off because it appears that you are spamming.

Try alternating your hashtags to see what gives you the best response. Your Tweets can be no more than 140 characters, including spaces.
