Levelling Up Your Reels in 2023: Proven Strategies for Influencers Success.

In this fast-paced world of social media, it’s becoming increasingly challenging for influencers to stand out from the crowd. One of the most effective ways to reach your audience and grow your following is through the creation of reels. 

Reels are short, attention-grabbing videos that are perfect for social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. In 2023 it is more important than ever for influencers to create high-quality reels that are both engaging and entertaining.

In this post, we will share some proven strategies for levelling up your 2023 reels and achieving influencer success. 

Plan your reel in advance

Before you start creating your reels, take some time to plan out your content. Think about your niche and your audience, and create content that is tailored to them. Plan out your script, shots, transitions and music. This will save you time and ensure that your content is of high quality. 

Use eye-catching visuals

In 2023, attention spans are shorter than ever before. To grab your audience’s attention you need to use eye-catch visuals in your reel. This includes interesting angles, creative transitions, and of course, good lighting. Lighting is one of the most important elements of filming a reel. Poor lighting can make your reel look amateurish and unprofessional, and the most flattering lighting is natural and front-facing, which basically means your window is going to be your best friend!

Use music to your advantage

Music and sound effects can take your reel to the next level. Choose music that fits your brand and your content, and use sound effects to enhance the visuals in your reel. Be sure that your music is of high quality and is allowed for commercial use.

Pro tip: To ensure your audience can hear you clearly while watching your reels, make sure that your background music doesn’t overpower your speaking.

Keep it short and sweet

Reels are designed to be short and sweet. In 2023, you should aim to keep your reels under 30 seconds. Attention spans are short and your audience loses interest very quickly. Keep your content concise and to the point, and make sure that every second counts. It’s worth noting that you don’t need to sacrifice creativity or quality to keep your reels short. In fact, creating a compelling reel within a shorter time frame can be a fun, creative challenge. Consider experimenting with different visual and audio techniques to make your reel stand out.

Add a call to action

A call to action, also known as CTA, is an important part of any reel. It’s your opportunity to engage with your audience and encourage them to take action, such as following you on Instagram, visiting a link or making a purchase. Keep your call to action concise and clear with action-oriented phrases like “Visit the link in my bio to find out more”.

Incorporating trending topics and challenges

To increase the visibility of your reels, incorporate trending topics and challenges. Participating in a viral trend or using a popular hashtag will increase the likelihood that your reel will appear in front of a new audience. Be sure to incorporate these trends in a creative and engaging way so that your current audience will still be interested in watching your reels.


In conclusion, creating high-quality reels is essential for any influencer’s success in 2023. Follow the above-proven strategies, and you’ll be well on your way to influencer success in 2023 and beyond.
