Subtitles – Why Adding Them Will Maximise The Reach Of Your Video
Subtitles aren’t just useful for the hard of hearing. They’re a great way to maximise the reach of your video and enhance viewer experience across the board, and so should be considered for all of your video content.
Mike Plenty, Managing Director at Dead Ready Productions, explains the subtitle options available in our latest 60 second production tips vlog. The content of which can be found below.
What are the benefits?
Ensure Your Video Works Without Audio
Video is often watched by people with the audio switched off, particularly when viewing on mobile. In fact, 85% of Facebook videos are watched on mute.
Having subtitles ensures these viewers don’t miss out on your content.
Even when audio is enabled, comprehension is often improved when viewers are able to read along as well.
The subtitles for your video can easily be translated to other languages, opening up your content to new markets.
Studies have shown that subtitled videos tend to be shared more than those without, as well as having higher viewer engagement. This has the knock-on effect of improving your SEO rankings.
Search engines can’t look through your video, but they can look through text. Posting the full subtitle text as a video transcript makes those keywords visible and increases the chance of your video being found.
