The best sock hashtags

Edward Fleming

Finding the best hashtags for your product or niche can send the likes your post gets into the stratosphere.  If the algorithm picks up on one of your posts being especially relevant and starts showing it to a wider audience than just your followers, well, sit back and watch your notifications go wild.

But what are the best hashtags to use to get your sock related post noticed?  How do you find them and how do you keep track of which sock related hashtags are hotting up and which ones are cooling down?

We're happy to share some of our insights and learning from spending 2 years in the sock biz and god knows how many hours on instagram.  We're pretty generous with what we like and we tend to follow back so find us on insta and say hi @cocksonsocksdotcom

These hashtags are what we find works for finding customers and its not always obvious.  For instance, #socks is used far more by other sock companies than it is by the general public and that's not really what we're going for right? (still use #socks, just be aware)

Shit changes, back in 2016 #sockswag was up there with the best of them but these days it doesn't get a look in.  Don't be afraid to jump on trends and move with the times.

Some non socks hashtags that might get your some relevant likes

Novelty socks hashtags

Cocks on socks, socks are firmly in the novelty sock sector and this is probably the area we push hardest.

If your socks appeal to multiple audiences and you do different types of content for different niches then definitely use specific hashtags to appeal to that audience. Switch it up man. For instance, cocks on socks has something of a gay following so we use some lgbt #’s sometimes.


#lgbt #gayuk #gayfeet


Sock colour hashtags


#blacksocks #whitesocks #bluesocks #greensocks #tyedyesocks #pinksocks #yellowsocks #redsocks #orangesocks #purplesocks #violetsocks #navysocks #maroonsocks #brownsocks #greysocks #beigesocks #


Should I use branded hashtags?


One branded hashtag is fine but don't waste your tags on branded tags when you’re new, afterall, nobody knows who you are.  It's much more important to try and jump on tags that people are already using to try and get your posts seen by a wider audience.  We use #cocksonsocks and that's it.(for now)


Should I dabble with fetish hashtags?


Socks go on feet and foot fetishes seem to be a thriving genre on insta and twitter these days.  There are some tags that will definitely get your posts seen by people out there who get their kicks out of feet but how likely are these guys to buy your socks?


In our experience fetish people have a pretty blinkered view and shopping isn't generally top of their list.  If you're going to post some genuinely sexy sock pics then go for some of these, but beware these guys are generally only after one thing, and good luck to them.


#footlover #socklover #sockfetish #socksfetish #feet #feetpics #feetpicsuk #dirtysocks #usedsocks #toes #toefetish #socksgirl 


While getting the right hashtag is important it's not the be all and end all, and success definitely does not come overnight.  Making great content, engaging with your audience and posting regularly are all key to making the most of instagram and twitter.
