Can you believe it? With the summer sun taking a bit of a breather and the leaves getting ready to show off their fall wardrobe, I've been thinking about how cool change can be. How's your summer been? I hope it's been a wild ride of awesome moments. Mine? Well, I've been mixing it up with family adventures, loads of fun with my girlfriends and some serious nature hangouts. ☀️
September is about to tiptoe in, and it's that time again—time to dive into content planning for the upcoming month. But before we ride those September waves, let's pause and chat about something that's been on my mind—REELS. Can you believe REELS has been around for three years now? 🎂
Here are a few stats to chew on:
Reels Interaction: Around 2.35 billion people engage with Instagram Reels every month.
Projected User Growth: Instagram is expected to reach 2.5 billion Monthly Active Users by the end of 2023, indicating that more people will interact with Reels in the future.
Engagement Boost: Reels receive 22% more interaction compared to standard video posts.
Age Demographics: The majority of Reels' audience falls within the 25 to 34 age group.
Perception of Similarity: 87% of Gen Z consider Reels and TikTok to be quite similar.
If you haven't started making REELS consistently yet, reach out for support!
