Much as I LOVE Social Media, even I was a bit wary of doing Reels!
I’ve gotten used to being on camera and hearing my voice to promote my business and in trainings. I actually really enjoy making videos these days even though I was a bit self-conscious to begin with!
But Reels? With dancing, and making funny faces, and pointing it captions?!
I wasn’t sure if I was up for that!
But what I did notice was the REACH Reels are getting.
And that got me interested!
And I actually really enjoyed watching Reels – they’re so much fun – all the things I love about Social Media!
And through watching and hearing trending Sounds, I started to get inspired with my own ideas and thought I’d give it a go!
Here’s what I’ve discovered…
- You DON’T have to go on camera if you don’t want to!
- You can use clips and images if you’re a bit camera shy.
- And being in the Pet Industry, there’s loads of opportunity to use cute pet pictures!
- You DON’T have to dance or point at captions!
- Reels are just short videos and you can use them any way you like!
- Using trending Sounds will give you better reach, but you don’t HAVE to use them. But guess what?! It’s a lot of fun if you DO want use Sounds and dance and point at captions! Why not?! Business doesn’t all have to be serious!
- It’s Super Quick and EASY to Make Reels!
When I first watched TikTok and Reels, I thought you’d have to be great at editing to make them.
But the Reels features built in to Social Media means anyone can make really cool, fun videos with all the bells and whistles!
And it’s actually quicker and easier than writing captions, finding images and hashtags a lot of the time.
But the main reason I love Reels for promoting my business? The Engagement and Reach I get From Just a Few Minutes Work
Some of my best performing Reels have 1000’s of views – much more than regular posts often get.
