Complete Instagram Reels Tutorial With 20 Content Ideas & Expert Tips to Get You Started

Have you been hearing all the buzz about Instagram reels, but not sure how to get started… or if you should even bother? 

Reels are the number one way to expand your reach and grow your following on Instagram right now, and with a few simple tricks they can be super easy to create… and even pretty fun! 

I was SUPER resistant to creating reels at first… because I thought you had to learn silly dances, or jump on hot trends to be successful with them. And, let’s just say… the internet does NOT need to see me dance. 

But when I learned how to show up on reels using my own unique voice, and just being myself I quickly found that I was getting more new followers from just a few reels each week than from ALL of my other posts combined. 

In this episode I’m sharing ALL my tips and tricks for Instagram reels including WHY you need to start using them ASAP if you’re looking to grow your organic following on Instagram, how often you need to post them, and my best tips, tricks and ideas to get you started… so let’s jump in!

In each episode of Global Freedom TV we like to provide you with a powerful free resource to help you get the most out of what we cover together.

Today we're sharing our Ultimate Instagram Reels Guide, where we not only recorded a step-by-step video tutorial to help you create reels inside the Instagram app, but also included 20 content ideas to get you started, along with a sample posting schedule for your reels.

We want to take all the confusion and overwhelm out of when, where and how to create high quality reels that deliver you new followers and leads for your business! 

You can download the guide absolutely free by clicking on the button above, or just click here.

What Are Instagram Reels And Why Are They Important?

Instagram Reels are Instagrams response to TikTok. Short, 30-60 second videos where you can share tips, tricks, inspiration and value with your audience in a format that the Instagram algorithm is REALLY loving right now. 

Like we said before, I was SUPER resistant to reels. They felt gimmicky… and weird… and just SO not me. But as we started watching more and more reels from other creators that we follow, we started to see that you absolutely CAN show up as your authentic self, and still get results. 

The key is to think of reels as stories that stick around. While a story is only around for 24 hours, and a regular grid post will only show up in feeds and searches for 2-3 days, … reels stick around and gain you followers for up to THREE WEEKS. Stories are GREAT for nurturing your current followers, but REELS are ideal for growing your audience, fast. 

Instagram Reels Tip #1 | Quality Over Quantity

When creating reels you want to go for QUALITY over quantity. While some people are suggesting you post to tik tok up to 4 times a day to get the best results, most experts I follow recommend posting reels 3-5 times each week.

If you follow us closely, you know how we are about planning… scheduling… and creating a business that fits around the lifestyle you want to create.

Decide now… how many reels are you going to create each week? What days are you going to post them? And then commit, and get it done.

Instagram Reels Tip #2 | Batch Your Instagram Reels to Boost Your Confidence + Stay Committed

When we first started creating reels we would make them one at a time… We ALWAYS felt rushed, and to be honest the whole process really stressed me out!

When we started batching our reels and setting aside some time to create 5-7 reels at once, all our anxiety disappeared. We quickly got better each time we made a new one, and it was so much easier to take our time and create high quality reels without stressing about needing to hurry up and get it posted.

Instagram Reels Tip #3 | Plan Your Instagram Reels Frame By Frame

When creating our reels, we plan them out just like we do our youtube videos or our Facebook lives. We open up a blank Google Doc and create a title, hook, and use bullet points to outline what we want to say, and what we want the text to read frame by frame.

Again, this takes all of the anxiety out of the equation. When you have a plan, you don’t have to stress about what to say… you can simply sit down, hit record and get it done! And if you mess up, hey, that’s totally fine! Just delete that clip, and record it again. 

Instagram Reels Tip #4 | Utilize Captions + Hashtags

Use captions and hashtags to summarize your reel, or to provide additional content you can’t fit in the video. I love to recap the tips I share in the reel in the caption below, and include a call to action for the viewer to follow my account, or take some other kind of next step to connect with me further.

ALWAYS post your reels to your grid… if you don’t know what that means, definitely check out the full tutorial where I show you exactly how to do this.

And in the first comment, include 28 relevant hashtags to push your reel out to your ideal audience, and voila! 

Bringing It All Together

The key to creating success with instagram rules is to show up consistently… treat your reels like the dynamite marketing strategy they really are by taking the time to make a plan, create quality content that is valuable to your audience, and utilize captions and hashtags to push your reel out to new people, and convert viewers into followers, leads and sales.

We REALLY want to give you a step-by-step tutorial for how to create your reels inside the Instagram app. However, we also know that instagram is changing ALL THE TIME and since this video will be up forever, we know a tech tutorial could quickly become outdated the day after we post it.

So, to help you out we created Our Complete Instagram Reels Guide where we’ve provided 20 content ideas to help you get started with your first reels, along with a sample posting schedule, and a complete video tutorial on HOW to create reels inside the app. The best part is, since the link to the video is inside this free resource, we can keep it updated for you so you can always feel confident knowing you’re watching the latest tutorial with all the newest tips and features.
