Reels Reels Reels!
Whilst those of us who loved and remember Vine always knew short-form video would have it’s moment, the rise of Reels (and Tik Tok!) since 2020 has really changed the game on Instagram. Short, snappy videos with trending songs are the way to go on this new platform on Instagram, snap a juicy food video watch the video views – and new followers – come rolling in!
#Hashtag – but keep it relevant
Historically, more hashtags meant more views, but with changes to the algorithm, hashtags are now there to categorize content for feeds and explore pages – it’s more important to use relevant, meaningful hashtags to the content of the post, rather than adding 20+ tags to one picture
