How to make your first reel on Instagram…which you can then upload to TikTok!

Reels on Instagram are such good fun to make and are blowing up right now. Why? Because they’re new and Instagram wants to encourage new creators to hop on to Reels!


The first three / four Reels I shared had more views than most of my regular videos and gave me my most liked post to date. How about that? The opportunity for growth and reaching new people with your wonderful message is huge!


So, how do you make your first Reel on Instagram? And how do reels compare to TikTok? Well, I’ve been creating my Reels in the Instagram app then downloading them and uploading them to TikTok. It means double the reach with one video. To make your first Reel on Instagram, you really do just have to dive in and give it a go! It is a little fiddly at first, but you quickly get the hang of it.


In this video, I’m going to show you how to make a Reel on Instagram including:


  • How to plan your Reel;
  • How to capture the best content for your Reel; and,
  • How to edit the video and add text.


I’ll also show you three ways to make a Reel so you can get started today! But don’t forget! Once you’ve made your first one, download it and share it on TikTok too for maximum social impact!
