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.
Okay, so now you know the secret. Let’s use the program and add them to your video.
Step 1. Create Rev Account
Step 2. Login and “place new order.”
Step 3. Click “Captions”
Step 4. Upload captions or link them with your YouTube (I usually choose YouTube).
Step 5. Choose video you’d like to get captions for
Step 6. Add selected to your cart and checkout ($1.00/minute)
Step 7. Wait for the captions to come back (usually a few hours), they e-mail you
Step 8. Click “download” and download the “Facebook ready SubRip (.srt) file!
Step 9. Upload your video to Facebook (or edit current video)
Step 10. After the video is uploaded, thumbnail is selected, and title/captions are up, click on “Subtitles & Captions”
Step 11. Select your language and click “upload,” then add the file you downloaded
Step 12. Save and you’re done!
There you have it :)
