Reels are THE best way to grow on Instagram right now because people are reaching totally new audiences each time they post. It’s so much easier to go viral with a Reel than any other type of content on Instagram right now & that’s because Instagram is no longer just a photo-sharing app. They are prioritizing video content & are rewarding content creators that are making Reels by showing their videos to a broader audience.
And friend, this is good news for YOU! Because it’s never been easier to go viral on Instagram. You know exactly which type of content to be focusing on making—Reels.
But if you’re still wondering exactly what you need to include in your Reels & how you can boost your chances of going viral, I put together some tips to keep in mind. Here’s what you need to be doing with each Reel you post if you want maximum reach & amazing engagement to help you go viral:
#1 Post Reels Consistently
When you post something on Instagram, it’s a little bit like gambling. The more you play the game, the more likely you are to win big. The same is true with your Reels! The more you upload, the better your chances at going viral. You won’t go viral with every single post, but if you stick to a consistent posting schedule, you’re setting your Reels up for success!
#2 Use Viral Audio
If you want to go viral using Instagram Reels, take advantage of viral audio and use a popular song or sound. You can find viral audio by browsing the Discover page for inspiration, looking on TikTok for trending sounds, and following other content creators in your niche to get ideas. When you’re watching a Reel, watch out for the little arrow in the bottom left corner with a link to the audio. This lets you know that the sound is popular & that it would be a good option for you to use to make a Reel!
#3 Take Advantage Of Trends
It’s not just viral audio you should watch out for! Stay up-to-date on what’s trending so you can use popular dances or challenges in your Reels. This will help you reach new people and a much broader audience to increase your chances of going viral. Save posts for inspiration & review them before you start creating content of your own.
#4 Engage With Your Audience
If you want to get maximum engagement on your Reels, you absolutely cannot post & ghost. You need to be interacting with your audience & spending time engaging with them if you want more views, comments & likes on your uploads. Be sure you share your Reel in your Stories so more people see it & that you like & reply to every single comment. The more active you are in the first 30 minutes after you post a Reel, the better! This is when the algorithm decides if your Reel is valuable and engaging enough to push out to a border audience, which is what you want to happen if you’re hoping to go viral!
