2 How to make a Reel with featured stories

As you have seen in previous chapters of the course, there are several ways to create Instagram Reels that we have explained in previous sections: Create Reels with photos, create Reels with videos, create Reels with already recorded videos, etc..

 

But recently Instagram has incorporated a new functionality that is worth knowing and that will surely be useful to you on some occasions, and that is to make Reels from an Instagram story that you have created.
In other words, this functionality will allow you to automatically create a Reel from it when you make an Instagram story that you will be able to share and that will remain on your Reels wall (and publications if you want). visible forever.

 

Next we are going to expose some of the reasons why it is a useful functionality to create stories from Instagram Reels..

 

Advantages of sharing stories like Reels on Instagram

  • Stories are deleted after 24 hours, Instagram Reels are not deleted.
  • Instagram strives to give a special diffusion to the Reels, so if you share your story as Reel it will have much more visibility than if you only publish them as stories.
  • If you have the public account, the Reels appear in the “Explore” section of Instagram, but not the stories.
  • Right now, it is the content that has the most engagement, so if you are looking for your content to reach more people with the same effort, it seems like a good idea to also convert a story into Reel.

 

Having said that, at this point we are going to focus on explaining the process of how to share your story as a Reel, and for this we are going to explain the step by step in the form of text and video.
