Are you feeling unsure about using Instagram Reels? It can be tough to showcase confidence on this platform, especially when you feel like you have to conform to popular trends. But don't worry, I'm here to help! 


In this blog, I'll focus on building your confidence so that you can share your message effortlessly just like the rockstar Keynote Speaker that you are on stage, rather than just on the technical aspects of creating Reels. 


Let's get you comfortable and ready to shine on Instagram Reels!


Embrace Your Comfort Zone

The key to looking confident on Instagram Reels is to feel confident. Wear clothes that make you comfortable; this isn't a fashion show, it's about you and your message. The main goal is to share your content authentically, so show up as yourself. Whether it's your favourite hoodie or a snazzy blazer, wear what makes you feel at ease.


Choose Your Speaking Spot Wisely

Creating Reels doesn't mean you have to be in a fancy studio. Film in a place where you feel free to express yourself. It could be your living room, office, or even a cozy corner. The important thing is to eliminate distractions and create an environment where you can speak freely without feeling self-conscious.


Stand or Sit, Whatever Feels Right

Whether you're a sitter or a stander, choose what feels good for your body. Instagram Reels are about showcasing your expertise. So, find a comfortable posture that allows you to express yourself confidently. Whether sitting comfortably on your couch or standing with a good posture, make sure it suits you.


Lean on your strengths: Speak

The beauty of Instagram Reels is that you don't have to be overly silly or follow trends that don't align with your message or brand. Just talk to the camera as if you're on stage talking to an audience or even just having a casual conversation with a friend. Speak strategically and authentically. Reels are a powerful tool for sharing your expertise, and your audience will appreciate the genuine connection.


Confidence is Key, Reels Are Here to Stay

Remember, Reels are here to stay and are a preferred form of content. Embrace them as part of your strategy. Boost your confidence by being yourself, speaking authentically, and creating content that aligns with your message. Don't forget to leverage Reels to your advantage as a Keynote Speaker. If you are unsure where to begin, start by adding 1 talking Reel a week and see how it feels to create and share. If it was an unexpected, enjoyable experience, add another talking Reel to your strategy. There is nothing wrong with starting slow, just allow yourself to try.


As a Keynote Speaker, Reels should be part of your strategy rather than a source of hesitation. They are here to stay, and your audience prefers this engaging form of content. Remember, the main goal is to share your message and content. Take the leap, boost your confidence, and make Instagram Reels that work for you.
