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.

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.
