How to Automate Instagram Reels Creation?

Creatomate is a video automation platform that simplifies the creation of Instagram Reels. Using just a single video template, you can design your Reel once, then insert different text, captions, photos, and video clips, to create many unique videos automatically.

Create an Instagram Reels template

To automate Instagram Reels, start by creating a template. This template serves as the foundation for all your automated videos. Within your template, you can set up placeholder elements that you want to be different from video to video.

While there are many ready-made templates available, you may prefer creating your own designs. You can do this using the online template editor. It provides lots of customization options, enabling you to create video designs that perfectly align with Instagram's style and meet your specific needs.

Choose your automation method

Once you have a design for your Instagram Reels, you can automate it using the following three methods:

  • The simplest way to auto-generate Instagram Reels is to use a video generation spreadsheet. By importing content like text, images, and video clips from data sources such as product catalogs, AI-generated documents, and CSV files, you can create a batch of videos all at once. Here's a 7-minute tutorial that will help you get started right away.
  • Another option is to use a no-code automation platform, like Zapier or Make (Integromat). With support for over a thousand apps, you can build custom workflows to create, post, and schedule Instagram Reels. Check out this Zapier tutorial or this Make tutorial for step-by-step instructions on setting up these automated processes.
  • For more flexibility, consider using the API. Using your preferred programming language, like Javascript, PHP, Ruby, or Python, you can create Instagram Reels directly from your application or script. Check out this guide or this tutorial for Node.js to get started.
