How to Improve Context & Create Impactful Reels with Title Slides

Imagine this:

You work hours in Reduct to create the most impactful reel ever. You are ready to share it with your boss. You walk up to her and hit play. You are waiting with a grin to hear words of praise.

Andddd you hear these words instead, "What's this for again?

This is my real story from a few months back.

I had to spend a few minutes giving the proper context to my boss about the reel. She then watched the reel again. And I finally had the pleasure of hearing her words of appreciation. I was lucky that I was there to share the context in person. Had I shared a URL to my reel, it would have been hours of wasted effort.

You can avoid this potential risk by adding Title Slides to your reels.
