Hashtags are the best way to reach a new audience on social media. Social media is about connecting people, and hashtags show users other accounts that are related to or interested in the same things that they are. This list of October hashtags will set you up for success. 

If you know which ones are coming up, you can prepare content to promote a cause, share content, celebrate an event, or engage with a new audience.

We’ve put together a list of the top holidays and events to help you plan your editorial calendar.

They won’t all be right for your brand or industry, but pick one that works, create a clever post, and raise awareness!
