Because Reels appear on the Reels Explore page, you may introduce yourself or share your brand story with thousands of new fans! There are several approaches you can take. Edit prior video clips together, convey your story with text, or speak straight to the camera. Whatever method you choose, be sure to share WHY you love your job and HOW you help your patients.
