Creating Instagram Reels for your business is a great opportunity to build your brand. You can showcase your listings, post educational and funny content, and even use it to promote yourself. While it might seem like an intimidating task, you can easily create or edit your Reels on Canva!
In this article, we’ll be breaking down the step-by-step process of creating Reels on Canva:
Step 1: Choose the right template.
Log on to Canva and create a new design. Search for Instagram Reels in the size options (1080×1920 px). This will give you a design template formatted especially for Instagram reels and make it easier for you to create and edit.
Once you have chosen the right template size, you’ll have hundreds of Reel templates to choose from! You can also opt to start from scratch.
Step 2: Customize your Reel.
Step 3: Edit the video.
Step 4: Download and publish the Reel.
After you’ve previewed the final video on Canca, you can download your Reel and publish it on Instagram. Make sure that you download the video as an MP4 with all the pages included. If you’re Canva is connected to your Instagram, you’ll even be able to publish it directly. If you haven’t added music to your Reel yet, you can also do that directly on Instagram before you publish it.
Choose a cover image, create a caption for your Reel, put in a few hashtags, and you’re good to go!
