This Business Card Only Uses Hashtags

Hashtag Business CardThis one is a first for me. I’ve seen hashtags used in social media marketing, but never as the only form of marketing on a business card.

I celebrated my 30th birthday recently, but I’m not too old to know how hashtags work. What I don’t know is how hashtags on a business card would work if there isn’t even a company listed.

Based on looking at them, it looks like the main goal of these hashtags is to help people.

But they also seem vague. That’s why I wanted to investigate each of these hashtags to see if people are using them.

#MathHelp

Math Help

It appears that #MathHelp is the hashtag used by something called the Math Crunch app. Clearly, it doesn’t help with English, Science or Chemistry. In fact, Math Crunch app-related Tweets are the only thing this hashtag seems to be used for.

#EnglishHelp

English Help

The #EnglishHelp hashtag seems to be more oriented towards the intended goal of this card, IMO. Not many people use this hashtag for things ranging from ESL to grammar advice.

#ScienceHelp

Science Help

It seems like #ScienceHelp brings out a bigger variety of inquiries. Some of the ones I see are downright silly, but not many people use this hashtag either.

#ChemHelp

Chem Help

#ChemHelp seems to be the hashtag that people use the most to communicate to one another. Kudos to BeakerBabe for the cool Twitter handle.

Conclusion: I’m not sure if using a hashtag without your name or your company’s name is a wise move since anybody can use a hashtag at random.
