Reels are an awesome way to share your talents or showcase snippets of your day in a dynamic and engaging format. However, the short video content can be challenging to share on your Instagram profile without clogging up your feed with videos that don’t align with your overall aesthetic and branding. Instagram stories, on the other hand, offer a temporary, highly visible way to engage with your audience through captivating videos. By combining the power of Reels with Instagram stories, you can post your reels to your profile and reach more followers.

How To Post Reels on Instagram Story Without Posting

The first step is to create your reel. It’s important to take the time to design a captivating video that will resonate with your audience. You can use any type of footage or music to create your reel and add text or stickers for more visual appeal. Instagram also provides an array of editing tools to give your Reel a more professional touch. Make sure to include popular hashtags in your video captions to increase discoverability.

Once you’re satisfied with your reel, tap the arrow at the bottom to upload it to your story. Make sure to toggle the switch next to “Your Reel will also appear on your profile and in the Reels tab” off if you only want it to be shared as a story. Once your Reel is uploaded to your story, tap the arrow at the bottom to share it.
