How to add captions to your Facebook videos (and why you should do it)

 

If you’re starting to use video, starting to vlog, or any sort of video that involves text, captions are absolutely ESSENTIAL.

Have you ever watched a video on facebook without using the sound?

Well, join the crowd.

There are more than 2 billion active monthly users on Facebook.

There are 100 million hours of daily video watch time.

And, 85% of all the video are viewed WITHOUT SOUND! 🤯

So, how do I add captions to my facebook videos?

I’ve tried Facebooks automatic captions (and they’re always off) and have spent the time typing them myself (total waste of time).

Until I found an absolute secret weapon that does it for me, at just $1 per minute.
