If you’re on Instagram, then you’ve probably already spent hours scrolling through hundreds of trendy Reels! They sure are fun and addictive to watch, but as a real estate agent have you tried making your own? If you haven’t, then it’s probably time to try them with the help of these tips and tricks!
1. Create multi-scene Reels
If you have multiple clips that you want to combine into one Reel, you can now do that directly on Instagram! You can either record each video live on Instagram or import pre-recorded videos from your gallery. You can add filters, special effects, and audio. You can trim each video and rearrange clips to be in sync with your audio. Just remember that you can only have Reels up to 90 seconds long!
2. Remix and duet Reels
One great thing about Reels is that you can remix viral trends, react to these videos, and duet them! To do this, just click on the ellipsis icon (three dots) on the lower right while watching the Reel that you want to remix. Once you click that, click the ‘Remix’ button and you’ll get to choose between “with original video” or “after original video.”
3. Add captions to your Reel
Adding captions to your Reel is easy and can improve the accessibility of your content. You can also do it directly on Instagram by clicking the ‘Aa’ button on the top right corner to add text. You can adjust the color, font, design, animation, and alignment of your caption. As easy as that and you’re done!
4. Use a Green Screen
The green screen is a cool effect that you would want to experiment on! This is what you need to do to access this feature: Swipe up to open your camera roll and you’ll see the ‘Green Screen’ option. Once you’ve selected the green screen, choose your background photo or video. Adjust the background (expand/zoom) to make yourself bigger or smaller against the backdrop. Once you’re happy with that, record your Reel as usual and then edit it as you wish!
