In recent years, businesses have had to adapt to a changing economic landscape and consumer behavior often by utilizing innovative new tools and technology.

One of these tools is short-form video, which offers businesses a way to gain attention, build and grow their community, and differentiate their brand in an increasingly saturated marketplace.

Trae Bodge, a business & lifestyle journalist and TV commentator, joined Studio 512 Co-Host Rosie Newberry to talk about teaming up with Meta to show business owners how to create reels that can help them grow.

Bodge has been named a top voice in retail by LinkedIn and regularly shares her insight on network TV shows like NBC Nightly News and CNBC.

She discussed short-form videos like Instagram Reels, why they are important, and how they can help businesses stand out. She also mentioned what makes a good reel, tips to keep in mind when creating one, how to create compelling video content, and Meta’s Small Business Studios event.

You can attend the event on September 28-29 in Austin, TX at The Distribution Hall, but if you can’t make it, Meta will also host it virtually.
