Updated: Sep 30, 2022

Are you looking for a way to get your reels more popular on social media?

Do you think your reels are entertaining but you aren't getting viewers for them?

Then, you are in the right place, Today we discuss why some reels won't go viral and some are super hit.

Sometimes when you want instant results, you were disappointed when they're not immediately forthcoming But that is because there's never a secret formula. People often think they need to create a video reel of their content and upload it onto places like social media and see huge results happen almost instantly. It takes patience to grow an audience - so where do you start? Well, share the best content from other creators, but personalize the message in some way so your viewers will feel more engaged with what you have to say.

  1. Not Having good light and sound: Capturing your contagious Reels on your phone is still a great option, but make sure you’ve got somewhere with plenty of natural light. Alternatively, you can use a ring light to ensure your Reels are always well-lit. Make sure there isn’t any background noise and that your voiceover, as well as music coming through the phone’s speakers, are heard clearly.

  2. You are not making eye-catching reels: At the end of the day, Instagram is a highly visual platform, your content needs to be eye-catching and high quality to get people to stop scrolling. So, try making great videos that catch people’s attention and make them want to watch and share what you have created!

  3. You are using a Tiktok video: Repurposing your content is okay, but Instagram has officially said they won't promote reels with the TikTok logo on them. So if you want your reels to go viral, make sure to get editing!

  4. Not using proper Hashtags: Using hashtags is a great way to draw others into your world especially when you're sharing your work with others who'd appreciate it. There are many ways of knowing whom to share with, be they followers on Instagram or friends in the real world, so again in this case being open to feedback will help take your social media presence to the next level.

  5. Not up-to-date with the latest trends: When one is not up to date with the latest trends this can be a downfall for any of your reels. The reason why your reels have yet to go viral may be due to not being up-to-date with current reel trends, current music, and current public demand.

  6. You are not consistent: Instagram has said that to keep new users engaged on their platform, they should be more consistent in posting. This means posting at least five times a week and making sure you are following the rhythm. Well, no one has the time to be creating seven Reels in a week at least. At this point, it’s important to be creating at least one Reel-a-week and you need to keep it consistent if you do post more.

  7. Adding too much text on screen: Adding text to your reels on the screen is important. Adding words to your video content allows you to adapt to trends and effectively deliver your stories. One of the biggest mistakes that lesser producers often make is adding too much text, causing subtitles to cover most of the video's screen real estate.


So at last we conclude with ways "how to go viral on Reels": make great videos, jump on your favorite social media trends, and keep an eye on what's trending around the web all at once.

We can't wait to see your reels trending!
