Instagram Reels: How to post Reels from RecurPost

Posting a Reel have become more popular these days as a “Reel” would be a video up to 60 seconds made up of a single clip or multiple clips edited together. You can add music, on-screen text, captions, and visual effects to your video in IG’s editor. High-performing Reels content can help you attract new followers and even bring in new customers to grow your business if you’re posting from a business profile.

Please note, Reels can be posted now directly on “Instagram Business Profile”, push-notification intervention is no longer needed while sharing Reels on Instagram Business Profile.

| Here is how to post Reels on Instagram Business Profile using RecurPost:

  1. You can upload a video and add the caption while creating One-off Post or while adding/creating a post to the library.

However, Reels cannot be posted directly on Instagram Personal and Creator Profile because Instagram does not allow scheduling tools to post Reels directly (automatically) over there, it’s against their rules & policies. Therefore, we support Reels posting via push notification. All you need to do is add your contents to RecurPost and set the time. We will send you the push notification at the time which you selected.
