Why Social Media Video Must Have Subtitles

Obviously we know it’s business owners getting quality content out there is king.

We can develop the content, but what are the things that you do behind the scenes to help us get it out there in a quality way, that gets to the people who need to hear us?

Okay, so one of the really big things with content is video. And like video is king.

And then within video, a big influencing thing with video, is that on social media, all videos that are viewed on social media, 75 to 80 percent of them are done with the volume at zero.

So having subtitles is really big.

If you haven’t got subtitles on your videos you’ve lost before you even begin basically.

Tough isn’t it?

It is.

So YouTube will automatically put subtitles on a video, but they only work on YouTube.

Even if you’ve got the video on YouTube with subtitles and you share that video to Facebook, for instance, those subtitles won’t show up on Facebook or anywhere else for that matter.

So burning the subtitles on to the video itself is crucial, so that the subtitles will show no matter where you post the video.

And you want to be posting it across multiple social media channels, to get maximum benefit from it.

Even if you’ve got the video on YouTube with subtitles and you share that video to Facebook, for instance, those subtitles won’t show up on Facebook. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

So, burning the subtitles onto the video itself, is crucial. So that the subtitles will show, no matter where you post the video.

And you want to be posting it across multiple social media channels, to get maximum benefit from it.

And it’s a very time-consuming process, if done manually, putting subtitles onto a video. This is where Constantech comes in, because we automate the burning of subtitles onto video.

You can get the benefit of subtitles, which is big. And without the labour intensive cost of doing it.

Fabulous. Music to a lot of business owners ears, I’m sure John. Thank you so much.

So yeah, video is a big part of social media today and marketing in general. And then so there’s a number of things that you can do with video. Like putting closed captions, on video. So that’s all automated.

75 percent of video that’s watched on social media is done with the audio off. So if you haven’t got captions on the video, you’ve lost already.

So just see that quite common. You know, a lot of those things, it’s they’re captioned automatically and it’s very good, they don’t really get anything wrong with the wording. It’s very accurate. And is that really just technology doing its thing?

Yeah. And it’s getting better all the time. So yeah, that’s very good, nowadays. The speech to text. And you can find it just on your phone as well, the speech to text. Yep.

Now, when are you going to have pricing for the platform and the service and all that kind of stuff?

Because this is really, really, really good gear because it’s also following a strategy that’s mastered by a couple of ex-Google guys.

Yes indeed, yeah and we’re just taking it to the next level.

And perhaps even a level after that actually really? Yeah.

So we do have three packages.

All right.

And one package we call our social package

Yep.

And that’s where we publish video to social media.

Okay.

And we have social plus podcast. That’s where we publish to social media and the audio to podcast channels.

And then we have social plus podcast plus blog.

So that’s that’s like the big donk.

Yeah, yes that’s it. Like going the whole hog.

The whole hog for the donk. Okay.

 

How to create an agile and efficient business environment

CHANGE: Agile Project Management is a way to tackle business initiatives, giving more weight to individuals and interactions over processes and tools.

 CHANGE: Agile Project Management is a way to tackle business initiatives, giving more weight to individuals and interactions over processes and tools.

Agile started as a project management methodology in the IT and then digital marketing sectors, but its use is spreading. It is a way to tackle initiatives by breaking them into iterative segments called sprints. It borrows from Pareto’s 80/20 principle, giving more weight to individuals and interactions over processes and tools.

The emphasis is on: getting things working over comprehensive documentation; a focus on customer collaboration over contract negotiation; valuing responsiveness to change rather than following a plan.

New research from WMG at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom shows that artificial intelligence (AI) can reduce the time needed to process abnormal chest x-rays and prioritize which x-rays need to be expedited.

The research was led by Professor Giovanni Montana, Chair in Data Science in WMG at Warwick University. His team worked with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in the UK to extract a dataset of half million anonymized adult chest X-Rays to teach the AI system to understand visual patterns in X-rays that predicted and assessed urgency levels and recognize in real time, abnormalities in those X-rays.

What is a marketing funnel?

Published: January 7, 2019 5:05 AM

The goal of a marketing funnel is to create a highly automated system that is measurable at any point in the customer journey

marketing funnel, CRM, prospective customers, social media, Digital technology, corporate communications

According to the old-school of thought, the marketing funnel appeared like this: In it, the marketer is required to fill the top of the funnel with as many leads (prospective customers) as possible since the bottom of the funnel only filters out a small percentage of concluding customers.

How AI-powered chatbots are unlocking business value

Since the term “AI” was first coined by cognitive scientist Richard McCarthy and his team in preparation for the 1956 Dartmouth AI Conference, machines that can demonstrate human-like intelligence have been the holy grail of the artificial intelligence field.

AI has certainly endured some rough times; falling well short of the hype popularized by media in addition to the unrealistic expectations that were created and not met by the reality of AI’s narrow capabilities. Along with the underestimation of AI project costs, this all contributed to busts and disappointments in the field.
