Why You Should Incorporate Instagram Reels

Driving traffic to your blog is your number one priority if you’re a blogger. It’s how you make successful affiliate incomes, on-page ads income, and market your own products. The social media networks that everyone frequents could all come crashing down one day? But chances are- your blog will remain unless the internet crashes too. If that happens.. let’s just say your biggest problem is probably no longer driving traffic to your blog k?

Anyways – let’s circle back to why you should use Instagram Reels? This new type of content on Instagram means that you have a new opportunity to grab your intended audience’s attention. Notice I said intended audience? Regardless of what niche you’re in- recognize that people are online and they are stumbling across different content all of the time. Your content could be discovered next! It just requires you to put yourself out there in a way that’s appealing to your audience!

Also, keep in mind: When Instagram or any social platform rolls out something new, they prioritize that content! That means your reach will be much higher by using what content they want you to use!

How To Use Instagram Reels

Instagram Reels may seem complicated but they really are easy to use! To show you how to use Reels.. we created a Reel of our German Shepherd Thunder. (Who doesn’t love dogs right?

Trending Songs on Instagram Reels By Genre

You’ll need to take some time to decide what vibe you want before choosing music for Instagram reels. For reels of Europe.. you could use something instrumental or something fun – but it should match the vibe of your feed and blog as a whole. We highly suggest listening to these songs before you add one!

We understand the idea behind Reels, – but it definitely took us a bit to navigate! While you’re learning to create a few awesome new pieces of content, make sure you’re getting our monthly playlist with a mix of old, new, and all-around good music!
