You’ve created a killer video and a solid promotional plan to go with it. But are you fully leveraging your marketing campaign’s potential? Adding closed captions to your videos is an excellent way to maximize your chance of viewer interaction while increasing your sales. Here’s how…

Can closed caption impact your sales?

“Our closed caption techniques work as a design element within your video. By doing so, you will be able to keep the integrity of the video look and brand and add the additional communication element that will help you engage and sell your service or product better.” Explains Dan Portik, Best Selling author and President of BVS Film Productions.

When was the last time you listened to a video on Facebook or another social media platform? Most people are either in an office environment or in an area where they are unable to use audio. With increased interaction and views comes increased sales. Keeping all this in mind, closed captions will increase your sales and conversion with your video marketing.
