10 Instagram Reels Social Media Managers Can Create to Attract Their Next Client
#1: Day In The Life of a Social Media Manager
One of the most popular types of Instagram Reels are "day in the life" style videos. Show clients all the different types of tasks you do in a day, how you work, the city you're based in, etc. This is your opportunity to showcase your services!
#2: Client Feed Transformation
Did you recently work with a client where you completely transformed the way their Instagram feed looks like? Create a simple Instagram Reel that showcases how their feed looked like before you brought them on as a client, and what their feed looks like now that they brought you on! Visual examples are everything to potential clients.
This is a great Instagram Reel topic for Social Media Managers because you can create a number of videos with this - photography, content creation, analytics calls, scheduling, etc.
For example: are you spending the day photographing content for your clients? Take mini videos throughout the day and combine it into a short Instagram Reel. Not only does this showcase that you provide photography as a service, but shows potential clients the type of clients you work with and your photography skills.
#4: What It's Like Working With Me
Potential clients have a hard time visualizing what it would be like to work with a social media manager. For many small businesses, it's their first time hiring out social media! The best thing you can do is to try to visualize how working with you would look like. For example, do you collaborate on Slack? Do you hop on monthly calls to discuss campaigns for the next quarter? Do you review analytics? Highlight some of the things you do.
#5: Why My Clients Love Working With Me
Testimonials are EVERYTHING. Did you get a new dazzling review from a client? Spread the word everywhere, including your Instagram Reels! Compile a few reviews with images of their Instagram Feed, and you've got yourself a snazzy new method to building rapport with your followers and potential clients.
#6: New Instagram Features You Should Be Utilizing
When you're a Social Media Manager, there's nothing more important than keeping up with the latest Instagram updates. If Instagram releases a new feature in the last week, create an Instagram Reel talking about the best ways small businesses can use that feature. Remember: the earlier you can hop on the trend conversation, the better!
#7: 5 Reasons Your Account Isn't Growing
More often than not, a big reason that small businesses outsource their social media marketing is because they're not seeing any growth in their accounts. Enter: you! A great way to attract new clients is to acknowledge their pain points on social media, so create an informative Instagram Reel that helps them on a small scale while also building trust with them.
