Social Media Reels and Why You Need to Start Doing Them

Why Social Media Reels are Important

A social media reel is a vertical video that showcases your work and your skills in your industry. It should be short and sweet, ideally no more than 1.5 minutes long. Social media reels are important because they help to get your name out there. They are also a great way to show off your skills and showcase what you are all about. Reels can be made of multiple short clips/photos, or one or two longer clips.

Tips To Make One

Some tips for making a good social media reel:

– Keep it short and sweet, ideally no more than 1 minute long.

– Make sure that all of the content on the reel is relevant to what you do or what you’re trying to share.

– Include some clips of yourself at work or in interviews, this will help with branding as well as getting people interested in you as an individual! It’s all about YOU, not where you work!

-Always set to trending music!
