• Give preference to sounds lasting up to six seconds.
I know that it is sometimes tricky only to choose a few videos/photos for your Reel, but I assure you that you will have more range if you use a few seconds. (I would have liked to know earlier that Instagram prioritizes shorter videos and people watch the shorter videos).
Use hashtags specific to your niche and that are not such generals. My favourites: #luxurytravelguide #honeymoondestination #weddingdestination.
• Include a text at the beginning of your reel that says what the video is about.
Try to keep it short and with words, people might be interested in and looking for.
• Look for sounds that, apart from having the little arrow pointing up, have less than 5k videos.
It will help your reel not get lost in a sound with millions of videos already created.
• Turn your photo dumps into Reels.
Take your best photos + videos of your trip and find trending sounds. You can quickly identify these (they have a little up arrow next to the name of the sound (which means they are viral).
