How to add text to video

So, you’ve created a video to share on your blog or website – now what? The next thing you should do is to partner with Milk Video to add text to your videos!

This guide will review the importance of adding text to your videos and how Milk can help.

The Importance of using Text in Your Video

There is a lot that goes into creating an effective and engaging video, and the text you include is a major part of it. Think about how often you browse social media and the web or watch a video without sound – pretty often, right?

According to research conducted by Verizon, up to 80% of viewers will watch your video content without the sound on. Whether they are watching it at work, at home, or in another public setting, it can be hard to capture your audience’s attention without the use of engaging text. 

For example, adding an eye-catching headline to videos is a great way to engage your viewers and keep them from moving on to the next one!

Similarly, adding text to your videos is another way to share your call to action or CTA. Do you want them to subscribe to your content? Or perhaps you want viewers to purchase the product your video was showcasing – regardless of the next step you want your audience to take, the inclusion of text can help you reinforce it. 

In addition, Milk contains text features that allow you to credit contributors or cite references – this will help you boost credibility and trust too!
