3 tips on creating video captions

Video is now a cornerstone of social media marketing, yet even savvy marketers often forget to include closed captions. It’s a big mistake. Why? On Facebook, 85% of videos are played without sound. In addition, a 2016 internal Facebook study revealed captioned video ads increase view time by an average of 12%. By adding captions, you improve your content’s accessibility — and engagement.

Here are three pointers on creating video captions:

  • Facebook and YouTube both provide free automatic captioning tools. Be sure to review the automatically created captions for inconsistencies or mistakes. Twitter, just earlier this year, finally added subtitle support for iOS and Android.
  • Instagram does not provide native captioning tools at this time, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t provide captions. Using Adobe Premiereyou can “burn” the captions onto your video.
  • If you do not have someone in your unit who is able to caption or transcribe your videos, there are several paid services that offer captioning, such as CamtasiaRev and Amara.

Digital letterhead

Creating digital letterhead for official university communication through email, web and other electronic applications just got easier! The Print and Imaging Lab has created an electronic letterhead template on ASU Print Online which allows you to customize your letterhead and will email you a Microsoft Word document to edit. After you’ve added your own body copy, you may save your letter as a PDF document to share with others.

Please note that electronic letterhead is not a replacement for official printed ASU letterhead. All academic and administrative units should use the official printed ASU letterhead and envelopes for printing purposes. You may order these and other official items through ASU Print Online.
