JULY SOCIAL MEDIA DATES 🇨🇦
We are knock, knock, knocking on July's door. Before we review some pretty awesome dates in July that you can incorporate into your social media strategy, I wanted to let you know that REELS templates are now available! 🥳
What are REELS templates? They're basically lifesavers. You know how you watch some accounts and they just nail their video clip's timing to the music? Well, you can do that too. This "yum, yum, yum" audio and template could be used for so many reels - Food, new merch, wine tasting...
Let's break it down step by step:
Step 1: Go to your REELS tab and start scrolling.
Step 2: Find a REEL that has USE TEMPLATE on it and tap that.
Step 3: Add your media from your camera roll to the template. Do you see where I'm going with this?
Step 4: Finish your REEL the way you normally would.
Step 5: Now try creating one and tag me in it! I'd love to see it and share it.
Alright, let's get into July Dates.
