#2 Always Share Reels to Your Feed
If you want more views on your Reels, make sure you are sharing them to your feed. This will help you make sure they are seen by as many people as possible. Plus, it’s super easy to do! Just make sure you have this feature turned on before you hit ‘post’ when you’re uploading a Reel. Then, your Reel will automatically get added to your feed as well.
#3 Share Reels To Your Story After Posting
You should be sharing your Reels to your Feed anytime you post, but you should also be sharing them to your Stories if you want to get the MOST views every time you post. This is a great way to let all of your followers know that you are posting something new and they should go check it out. PLUS, the Reels in your Story count toward your overall Reel views!
Use a GIF & text to make your Story eye-catching and get your followers excited to check out your new Reel!
#4 Use Trending Audio & Transitions
When you use trending audio, you have the potential to reach SO many more people & to get TONS of views! Anyone who searches for that sound has the potential to find your Reel and it’s more likely to get recommended to people outside of your community of followers, too! If you want more views, make sure you are using popular songs & audio that’s trending.
Plus, take advantage of transition trends, dances, and anything else that you’re seeing other people do in their Reels. This will help you create entertaining content that captivates your audience & boosts your views.
#5 Engage Before & After Posting
If you want LOTS of views in 2022, you need to remember what Instagram is all about—and that is staying social. It’s an app designed to connect people & you will see an increase in your views if you start being intentional about engaging with your audience.
Before you post, spend some time on the app, replying to any outstanding DM’s or comments you haven’t responded to.
And, after you post?
Stick around! Don’t post & ghost.
You should take time to talk to the people who are viewing your Reel & chat with them in the comments about any questions they have. And if you want to encourage people to comment so that you can engage with them, include a call to action at the end of your Reel. Here are some ideas you can use to get people to engage with you after you post your Reel:
→ Meet me in the comments
