Direct Reels Scheduling is here!

Jul 22, 2022

Short Form Video is on Fire 🔥


That’s a fact so big that Facebook / Meta / Instagram had to “borrow” the feature from Tiktok or risk losing ground to their competitor. 

Reels generate up to 67% more engagement than regular IG videos. But handling Reels for clients isn’t sustainable if you have to post them manually – until now!

With Reels auto-publishing, you can now keep your feed filled with relevant, engaging content. 

Simply click the toggle in the publishing tab when uploading a video, and voila! Easy-peasy Reels scheduling.

Notes

The Reel will be published in only reel format. It’ll show up on their profile under their reels tab, but it’s not definite that it will make it to Instagram’s reels page because of the Reels algorithm
