If you are looking to hire someone to make your instagram reels, you’ve come to the right place! If you hate making reels yourself and find your losing valuable hours making them yourself or watching tutorials online then outsource your instagram reels to me!
WHY CREATE INSTAGRAM REELS FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS?
The instagram algorithm is always changing and lately it has put more emphasis on video- specifically instagram reels. Gone are the days from years ago when you would get tons of engagement just posting a photo to your grid. Now the best thing you can do on instagram to get the most reach and your account seen by new people is to create instagram reels. I’ve totally seen the difference on my own photography instagram account. Typically I average 20-35 likes when I post a single photo compared to 15-205 likes on a reel (plus a range of views from 220-9,485). It’s crazy how one reel I post from weeks before can continue to rack up views and additional followers weeks later. Reels definitely aren’t for everyone, but if you normally book a lot of clients from social media and your ideal client would choose instagram over the other platforms you may want to give reels a try!
OTHER TOP TIPS TO MAKE YOUR INSTAGRAM REELS GET SEEN
First off it’s best to post your instagram reels directly to your main grid feed instead of just on your reels tab only. Then I make sure I tag any vendors in the reel itself whether it’s from an engagement session or wedding (such as make-up artists, hair salons, wedding planner, wedding attire etc.) After that I post hashtags in the first comment section of the reel once it’s been posted. For example if it was a Vermont wedding I may do #vermontweddingphotographer and the name of the venue #mountaintopinn. Lastly, I’ll go to the posted reel on my main grid feed and then hit the button to share to my story. At this time I’ll once again tag the vendors and location/venue if applicable so they are able to reshare it onto their stories as well. Taking these additional extra steps also helps boost the views in the long run!

I WANT TO OUTSOURCE INSTAGRAM REELS FOR MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESSES- WHAT WILL MINE LOOK LIKE?
Currently I create *photo only* reels 10 seconds or less using trending audio and your vertical images. You will tell me what you want your feature image to be on your main grid plus the title and then the last photo will have your instagram handle so others can follow you. You can see exactly what I mean from my instagram account here and here.
HERE ARE SOME FAQS REGARDING OUTSOURCING YOUR INSTAGRAM REELS
CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT MY REEL GOES VIRAL & THAT I’LL GET BOOKINGS FROM IT?
Unfortunately I can’t guarantee that any of the reels I create will go viral or that you’ll get bookings directly from the reels I make.
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR YOUR INSTAGRAM REEL PACKAGES?
You can inquire by emailing me directly at email@example.com and you pay for the 3 reel or 5 reel package it is a 24 hour turn around during the weekdays. I create reels Monday-Friday so if you inquire on a weekend yours will be made on Monday.
I’M NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER- CAN I STILL OUTSOURCE MY REELS TO YOU?
Absolutely! As long as you have vertical images that you have the rights to I can create reels for your business as well.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR ME TO HIRE YOU TO MAKE MY INSTAGRAM REELS?
I make it super simple! You can either choose a 3 reel package for $35 or a 5 reel package for $50.

I am so excited to take this off your plate so you can continue to be seen on social media by new faces and focus your time in other areas of your business that don’t include social media! Inquire by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if I’m able to take on your instagram reel project and let me know if you’d like to purchase the 3 reel package for $35 or 5 reel package for $50.
