Creating Viral Instagram Reel Tutorials

I don’t know about you, but a lot of my suggested reels these days are just tutorials on how to make more reels. And they have HUGE view numbers! So how does one go about creating viral Instagram reel tutorials?

Well, there are a few things which I covered in my previous post about creating engaging Instagram reels that certainly hold true here as well:

  • Keep it short
  • Use trending audio
  • Use native Instagram text
  • Encourage others to use the same tools to make their own reels

You also, absolutely, have to include the number of seconds each image or video is viewed. Sure, you could just tell people to use the “use as template” feature but where is the fun in that when you can have a reel that is covered with a ton of technical info that viewers have to pause or watch a half dozen times to understand?

Encouraging others to use the tools that you used in your own reel are a huge part of your success. Instagram wants people to make MORE REELS! So, if you are getting people to do just that they might give your reel a little boost.

Fill up that caption with statements telling your viewers how they can go viral, what audio to use, and tell them to just do what you have done and sit back and see what happens!

If it’s that easy…why isn’t it working for everyone?
