Earlier this month, Instagram released a new way to create 15-second clips on the platform called Reels! Are you having a hard time understanding what it is? Or how it can benefit your business? We are here to help!
So, What Are Instagram Reels?
Instagram Reels is a brand new way to create engaging video content! Below are a few examples that Spotted Monkey has created! Reels is now available in the United States and 50 other countries.
Many of you are probably thinking, well, this seems very similar to TikTok. And you would be correct! Similar to TikTok, Instagram users can create 15-second video clips and share them to their Stories, Explore Feed, and the new Reels tab onto their profile.
How To Find Reels
Reels has its own “For You Page” that can be found on Instagram’s Explore Page. We have attached some screenshots below to help you navigate your way to this new awesome feature!
Similar to TikTok, instead of only seeing videos from accounts you follow, you will see Reels from popular and trending accounts and it is likely that your feed is based on accounts you already follow or have shown interest in.
How To Make a Reel
When creating a Reel, you can choose to film video clips in REEL time (had to throw one pun in there lol) or upload from your camera roll. Once you are happy with your 15-second video you can add stickers and gifs from Instagram.
