Reels are short videos on Instagram. Videos get posted on your profile feed. As opposed to stories, reels stay on your feed forever.

Reels are a low-cost way to promote yourself, but at the same time it is one of the most helpful tools. Viral videos appeal to the audience and raise loyalty to your brand. The high outreach of such videos shapes visibility and helps you attract new subscribers.

What Reels are of interest?

You can pick ideas for your Reels on TikTok, as this is the trend-setting platform currently. The most popular themes for short videos in 2022 are:

Show the other you the way you have never shown before. You might come up with a character and give them a different name.

2. Nostalgia for the past

For example, you can show how the way of clothing has changed over the years. You might start with a photo of your childhood or of you a couple of years ago and end your video with your recent photo showing all the changes.

3. I-love-myself manifesto

Look straight into the camera and give a short text with self-care affirmations.

4. Lip-sync

A video with you doing a lip-sync of a funny audio track from a movie, series, or a YouTube video describing a typical life story.
