People have been asking me, "How do you add captions on your videos?"

It's hard to explain, so I decided to show you how to do it:

Watch this video to learn how to:

  • get captions/subtitles for your Facebook Live videos (01:27)
  • get captions/subtitles for your YouTube videos (05:18)
  • download the transcript so you can repurpose your videos into blog posts, emails, and other text-based content (08:59)

Why do you want to add captions or subtitles on your Facebook and YouTube videos?

That's one of the ways to power up your online videos, so you get more views and engagement. I explain the reason here.

Of course, another reason is so you can repurpose your videos into other forms of content, such as blog posts, newsletters, ebooks, etc.

What other ways can you make use of video transcripts? Share your ideas below 🙂
