Reels make their debut on Facebook

Let’s face it: Short-form video is here to stay. Meta recently released Facebook Reels to all users, utilizing the enormous audience to push video even more to audiences around the globe.

Even though it’s yet again another channel to create content for, don’t stress—it’s the same thing as Instagram Reels. Don’t be afraid to repurpose content.

Have you heard about TikTok’s newest ad feature called Promote? It’s their latest feature to get brands, businesses, and users a boost with website traffic, followers, and more. And, according to TikTok, using certain hashtags in conjunction with this have been paying off heavily for small businesses.

Take #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt, for example. Here, you find a robust collection of small businesses promoting their products and services. The hashtag has become so popular, 9 billion people have viewed it, and 47% of users on TikTok say that something they saw live on TikTok, well, made them buy it.
