How to Turn Your Social Media Captions Into Your Next Instagram Reel

When it comes to content creation in your business, is your motto to work smarter, not harder?

*If not, it should be!*

Here at Social Curator, we value repurposing content because there are so many business owners who spend a lot of time creating content, but they don’t do it efficiently.

It’s very common for creatives to constantly brainstorm ways to bring value to their audience by creating multiple pieces of content per week, but this is not necessarily the best way to approach social media.

Though they have great intentions for doing #allthethings, we want you to take what you already have and capitalize on it!

That’s why one of our favorite ways to teach business owners to do that is to repurpose your pre-existing content in other ways.

For example, let’s begin with this Social Curator caption template:

Showcase Product/Service Caption Template: Answering a Question

Recently, I was talking with @clientname about my business, and they asked __________ [frequently asked question]. Since it’s a GREAT one, I figured I’d share the answer here in case you have it too! __________ [Answer]. So there you have it! What other questions do you have?

Now, let’s say you customized that caption template for your business, like this:

Answering a Question Caption Template: Customized for a Children’s Picture Book Author

Are you wondering THIS too?! Recently, I was talking with a friend about my picture books, and they asked what age you should start reading to your children. Since it’s a GREAT one, I figured I’d share the answer here in case you have it too! You should start reading to your children as early as possible, even in the womb. Reading to your child aids in their development and even if they are too young to understand the story, they’ll love the colorful pictures found in my books. So there you have it! What questions do you have?

Many business owners may have stopped creating content at this point. But there is ANOTHER way you could use this caption template for your business… and it’s by using it to create an Instagram Reel!

That’s right, friend! Social Curator users have used our caption templates to help them create Facebook live and IGTV video scripts, as inspiration for blog posts and newsletters, and--what we’re talking about today--to help them create Instagram Reels.

>>Instagram Reels are basically mini commercials that allow you to TALK about your business without SELLING your business.<<

They are under 60 seconds long, and the most successful ones are fun, quick, and visually appealing to keep the viewer engaged!

Here’s an example of how you can modify the caption template we modified before to create your next 60-seconds-or-less Instagram Reel:

Answering a Question Instagram Reel Script: Customized for a Children’s Picture Book Author

  • First 2 Seconds, narration by author: Are you wondering THIS too?!
  • 2-4 Seconds, narrator pointing to text on screen: Question: What age should you start reading to your children?
  • 4-6 Seconds, narrator pointing to text on screen: Answer: As early as possible, even in the womb!
  • 6-10 Seconds, narration by Author with visuals of them reading to children: Reading to your child aids in their development and even if they are too young to understand the story, they’ll love the colorful pictures found in my books.
  • 10-12 Seconds, narration by Author: So there you have it! What questions do you have?

Clearly, with Social Curator caption templates, you can create Instagram Reels quickly and effortlessly!
