Many people watch Reels, but a lot of people are afraid of making them themselves because they do not know where to start. I want to give you a little peace of mind and tell you it is easy, you just have to start. In this month’s blog, I will be sharing how to Get Real About Reels!
Where to start with Reels? The first place to start if you want to make a Reel is to ask yourself what do you like to watch. Most likely those are the same ideas people want to see from you. Every week you should go through the trending Reels on Instagram and see what inspires you. Once you view several ideas, then decide which type of Reel you want to do.
Time to make Reels! Are you asking yourself, “How can I find time to make a Reel?” because you are too busy? Here is the great thing, Reels can be as short as 15 seconds. They don’t have to be long. If you still feel like you don’t have time, then you can just make a Remix Reel and use voices and music that other people have already done. Your Reels don’t always have to be original.
Add Reels to your Marketing Plan! In my world, everything is a marketing strategy, and Instagram Reels is no different. Not only does using Reels increase your brand awareness, it also expands your reach. For example, your post may get 112 views, but your Reel may get 1,100 views. That is a BIG difference, and it is worth putting in the effort for 15 seconds!
