I recently did an Instagram Reels Ideas post that you guys LOVED, and that video shared 5 main “categories” of types of reels you can make. In this video, I want to share 15 different *specific* types of reels that you can make as an online brand! All of these will be through the lens of my business as a photographer and educator. Definitely make them specific to YOUR brand!
Instagram Reels YOU Can Make
It’s important to remember that Reels, Tik Tok and all of these platforms survive primarily on trends. Depending when you read this and watch the video, these trends may not be as popular. Finally, make sure that you make these CUSTOMIZED to your brand and business. Take these ideas and make them yours – that ‘s what makes Instagram Reels SO special!
And if you’re wondering how to grab the sounds, just go to the Reels listed below and click where it says “original audio” then you can create a Reel using that sound! Super easy and I don’t mind if you use mine at all!
Below, I’ll share a few of the ideas but make sure you watch the video for all of them!
Give a quick tip or hack to your audience. Remember, this is a short form video so you don’t have to give them a TON of information. Just something short and fast. If you think there’s something unknown or something people wonder about what you do, try sharing it as a quick hack reel!
You can go SO many routes with this. But, remember, people want to buy from people. Share your story, your business story, a little bit about you growing up or something about your daily life! People LOVE to see these stories!
Share How Your Process is Different:
Whatever it is that you do, think about what about you is different than everyone else who does what you do. This doesn’t have to be really complicated. Just share one thing that makes your story unique!
Don’t forget, I have a FREE Instagram Reels cover you can grab HERE. It’s a great way to help your Reels look ON BRAND!! I just love them!
