Get The Most Out of Your Credit Union Facebook Videos

Publishing a native Facebook video is a great way to get organic reach and interaction with members and potential new members online. Native video means you upload your video file (.mp3 for example) directly to Facebook, rather than sharing a link from YouTube or another video hosting website.

BUT, there is one problem, 85% of Facebook videos are played without sound!! 

So, if your video does not already have captions, you may not be getting your message across at all! But Facebook makes it easy to add them, and this tip will help you get the most out of your credit union Facebook videos!credit union facebook videos image

Here's an easy way to add subtitles to your video after it has been uploaded to Facebook in just a few easy steps. 

Step 1:

Go into Ads Manager and create a Video View Ad

Step 2:

Pick audience, placement and budget. If you have a limited budget, you can set the ad to run for 1 day at $1 a day.

Step 3:

Pick the video from your library that you would like to add captions to, then click "Add Captions" 

Note: Facebook will automatically fill in the captions, but they are NEVER perfect. Make sure you go through these and make edits! Usually takes a few minutes but makes a big impact.

Step 4: 

Place your order!

Once you place your order, Facebook will notify you when your captions were approved. These captions will not only be applied to your video ad, but will be applied to the original video as well. Video captions display only when sound is off, so you can communicate your message to everyone.
