3. Share your best sellers ✨
Sharing your best sellers also adds interest to your product suite, and allows you to showcase why that product is a best seller. You can also include some customer testimonials in this reel, to demonstrate why this product often sells out!
4. Create gift guide 🎁
This one is particularly great if there is a holiday just around the corner, but can also work all year round! Showcase your product suite as a ‘gift guide’ for various customer segments using multiple shots.

5. Debunk common myths about your product or industry ❌
All industries have myths, and reels are a great outlet to debunk some! List some common misconceptions in your industry or about your product and debunk them. This will not only add interest around your brand, but also establish you as an authority figure in the industry enabling you to build trust within your audience.
6. Share the story of your brand 📜
All brands have a story, and sharing it will not only nurture relationships with your audience but also humanise your brand. A great way to share this would be through a chronological format, demonstrating why you founded your brand and the growth that it has had!
7. Share three different ways to style your product 🪄
This works especially well for clothing or interiors based businesses, but can work for many other product types! In three separate shots, showcase different ways to style your product!
8. Tease an upcoming product or collection 🤐
Teasing an upcoming collection is not only another great way to build interest around your product suite, but also a brilliant way get people on your mailing list and encourage cross-platform growth. Offer your mailing list audience an early bird access sale to encourage leads and grow your audience outwith Instagram.
9. Introduce the team 👥
This is another great way to humanise your brand! Introduce your different team members in multiple shots with a brief bio of their role in the business! If you’re a solopreneur, list the jobs you do as a one man band with multiple shots of you carrying them out!
