How To Add TikTok Sounds To Reels

Dec 29, 2021

In today’s post, I’m going to walk you through the process of adding a trending song from TikTok or your favorite voice-over and using it for your Instagram reels.


I know a lot of you might be asking, well, why don’t you just find the sound over on Instagram?

Well, I don’t know about you, but it’s not always that easy. I’ve tried many ways from searching for the #hashtag or trying to search for a snippet of the most popular part of the song/sound.

I’ll tell you from my own experience that it’s not always that easy.

If you’ve been struggling with finding popular TikTok songs on Instagram, you’ve made it to the best post.
The head of Instagram has made several videos addressing the reach of Instagram Reels that display the TikTok logo. The algorithm doesn’t like it and they will limit your reach. So before you post your TikTok videos to Instagram remove the watermark first.

Here’s what you need:

1. Smartphone
2. Capcut – Video editing app
Capcut right now is my go-to for video editing. I made an entire video on how to edit for beginners. If you need tips on how to edit short videos for your Instagram account, be sure to watch it. I use Capcut to edit my YouTube videos, Instagram Reels, and TikTok videos.

TIP: Canva will give you the dimensions for any type of social media posts.

Now you want to record the actual video. In the next step, you can do it two different ways. You can record it on your smartphone or record it inside the Capcut app.
Once you have both videos added t your editing timeline, go ahead and delete the TikTok video (after you extract the audio).

Trim any excess if necessary. Save the video to your smartphone and upload it on Instagram. Tag the creator if you can find them on Instagram.

Okay. So I want to hear your questions. I want to know your struggles are right now when it comes to marketing your business online. Are you comfortable with creating videos to promote your business?
