Feeling stuck with your content creation?
It’s no secret that creating and incorporating Reels into your marketing strategy is necessary, but what if you have no idea what to create?
You’re not alone! Whether you’ve never created a Reel in your life, have filmed a handful, or you’ve been filming Reels for a while now, sometimes you just run out of ideas and need a spark of inspiration to keep creating. The good news is, I got you covered.
Here are two easy and engagement-boosting Reels you can create today!
Reel Prompt #1: I Spy Edition
Choose something in your workspace that you’d like to showcase for fun or promote for your biz (e.g. your cat taking a nap on your keyboard, a new product on the shelf behind you, etc.).
Then… Record yourself in your workspace either:
- Wearing and peeking over a pair of sunglasses or shifting your eyes back and forth suspiciously.
- Customize this caption template as a voiceover script:
Let’s play I Spy… __________ [home office/new product alert/etc.] edition! I spy with my little eye something that is __________ [furry/red/etc.]. Got any guesses? Drop them below and I’ll announce the winner __________ [tomorrow/in my Stories/etc.]!
Reel Prompt #2: Awesome Audio Edition
Follow the steps below:
- Choose one of the audio options below
Option 1: Beyonce’s Summer Renaissance
Option 2: The Door Knock
- Customize the caption provided, and then
- Pick the Reel Prompt that’s right for your business (product or service-based)
- Customize this caption:
Want to hear something super awesome?! I HAVE to tell you about __________ [great feature of your product or service that strongly benefits your clients/customers]. I told you it was awesome! Now, tell ME what I can do to make it even better for YOU!
Pick the Reel Prompt that’s right for your business
Option 1: Record a closeup of a product you’d like to feature and include text that shares 1-3 benefits.
Option 2: Record yourself knocking on a door and then answering the door to find the product you're featuring to be waiting for you, along with text describing a benefit it offers your customers.
Option 1: Record a closeup of an encouraging phrase or quote that would resonate with your Ideal Client.
Option 2: Record yourself knocking on a door in one outfit and then answering the door to in a different outfit along with text describing a benefit of your service. (Pro tip: keep it simple by throwing on a jacket or changing only your shirt!)
Pro Tip: Keep it simple by using the scripts above as your caption. Time to press record!
Seriously… just press record. It doesn’t have to be perfect (in fact, your followers will likely relate and engage with your Reel when it’s not).
And remember: the more content you create the easier and more efficient the process will get. It’s time to stop overthinking it and just start.
