Social media marketing continues to be one of the most important tools in digital marketing, as brands flock on different social media platforms to promote their products and services.
With the constant innovation of social media, to stay relevant, Meta, the mother company of Facebook and Instagram, introduced Reels to compete with the popularity of Tiktok.
What are Reels?
Reels are a feature that allows Facebook and Instagram users to create short videos to appeal to their target market.
You can edit and put together video clips to create a more entertaining video using uploaded content, filters, texts, audio, and various editing tools.
Reels, particularly Instagram Reels, have gained popularity due to its option that allows users to remix videos or record their video next to another user’s video.
Reels also follow a certain algorithm that helps creators to appeal to their target market. Hence why different companies, and even organizations are now using Reels to promote their products, services and advocacies.
Trending reels are also recommended to users that have a specific search query, similar to how Tiktok recommendation works, thus, you can boost your engagements to your target audience, helping you grow your followers while creating a domino effect to improve your brand ranking.
