If you want to save time looking for the perfect social media hashtag for small business, the new Business Hashtags App may help. Business Hashtags App is an iPhone application that generates highly relevant hashtags pertaining to Business, Small Business, Entrepreneurial and Motivational content in seconds.
Joe Lampasona of Too Much Wasabi developed the hashtag generator geared for entrepreneurs and small business people.
“Users never have to wonder which hashtags they should use, while actively avoiding irrelevant hashtags, spammy hashtags, typo’d hashtags or flagged or banned hashtags,” Lampasona told Small Business Trends. “By using relevant ones, your content gets shared with a more targeted audience or potential new customers that are far more likely to engage and interact with your profile.”
What Is the Business Hashtags App?
The app has more than 2,000 hashtags. They fit into 17 different categories. As a result, users get to cherry pick from the categories they need.
Business-related hashtags include Mindset, Entrepreneur, Business Women, Mindset & Marketing and more.
Lampasona gives an example of how the app can be used.
“If a user is making an Instagram post with a Small Business tip, the hashtags the user may use are: #SmallBusiness, #SmallBusinessOwners, #SmallBusinessMarketing, #SmallBusinessTips, #MarketingTips and #Entrepreneurship.”
As a result, the user can select the appropriate categories and hashtags for their social media post.
When the user is finished picking the options, they press the Copy Hashtags button. They then return to their social media to paste right into their post.
A Simple Tool For Business Content
Lampasona elaborates on how simple it is for small business owners to use.
“They simply tap categories relevant to the content they’re going to post, then tap to select the appropriate hashtags,” he says. “This creates a bank of options that users can paste right into their content on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Facebook.”

Looking to Improve
Business Hashtags App is good now and looking to improve. Some of the categories are admittedly broad. There are plans to add geographic based hashtags based on specific industries and locale.
The app solves another problem small businesses face. Namely, the need for a steady flow of effective content . And funneled to the right target markets.
“Consistent content creation is key to growing your business & brand on Social Media,” Lampasona says. “ However, content needs to be effective. The right audience needs to see it. Business Hashtags App helps to solve this problem by connecting your content to the proper audience.”
As a result, Lampasona says he’s pen to suggestions from users. If you have a suggestion for a missing category, contact Lampasona at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There’s also a Premium version that drills deeper. Business Hashtags App Premium unlocks all categories of hashtags, and provides invaluable insight into the competition level of each.
“Competition level refers to the amount of content posted to a hashtag,” Lampasona says.
Here’s a few examples. #Business on Instagram has 73.6 million posts equaling Intense Competition.
On the opposite end of those ratings, #GrowingMyBusiness has 22k posts for Low Competition.
“That means this hashtag, keeps your content at the top of recent posts for considerably longer,” Lampasona says. “ Think of this hashtag as a slow-moving stream, versus a fast-moving waterfall like #Business.”
At the moment, the app is only available on iOS.
