How To Get Paid Creating Reels

Listen, if you are a creator who wants to make extra cash this blog post is definitely for you. I have been creating reels since the featured was released back in 2020 and one of the reasons why I loved it was because as a creator, you get way more exposure than regular video content.

According to Instagram, “Reels Play bonuses are opportunities for creators to earn money directly from Facebook and Instagram for creating content that their communities love."

"How do I start getting paid?"

First, make sure your account is set up as a "Business" or "Creator" account and you can do this by going in your settings in case you have not done so. You have to create on a consistent basis for Instagram to give you access to monetize your reels.

How Do Reels Play Bonuses Work?

  • Once you have access to get monetized, you will have 30 days to create reels and reach the maximum bonus.

  • During the 30 day period you can choose as many Instagram Reels as you would like to count toward your payout.

  • You will have the option to select "Reel Bonus Program" before you share a Reel in your page.

The more views you get, the more money you make. For me, this is motivation to create more Reels and honestly it's fun because people get to see more about my lifestyle instead of when I only post pictures.

Tip: Create content that is relatable and shareable with your audience. The quality is also very important, this plays a big part in your reels performance.
