Leverage Your Existing Content to Grow Your Audience
Get Your Content in Front of the Right Audience
Great videos and podcasts need to get found. The SEO game is getting tougher and content competition is increasing. You need to find an advantage to get your awesome content in front of more people.
Google and other search engines can't "read" audio.
This means they don't know what your content is about.
You spend a lot of time focusing on SEO for everything you write on your content. Especially the descriptions and headlines of your videos and podcasts. That's because that's what search engines can read.
There is also an untapped market of Deaf or hard of hearing people that would benefit from your content if it was accessible to them. So how do you get your amazing content in front of them?
How People Consume Video Content
How people consume content is also changing. People are so busy that they consume content in small snippets throughout their day. Think of all the micro break moments in everyone's day and that's when people are viewing your content.
Waiting in line, at their work desk, even in the washroom (admit it, we've all done it).
What's the one common thing with these times? They watch videos with the sound off. 92% of mobile users watched videos with the sound off. You need captions or subtitles or they are watching someone else's video.
In such a competitive market, you know you should have captions or subtitles. But you have more important things to focus on, so it often gets prioritized last. You'd do it if there was a fast, efficient way.
How to Get an Edge in Podcasting
You already know that podcasts can really benefit from the SEO boost that transcribing can give. Podcasts are generally much longer in length than videos. People listen to them while working, driving, or cooking dinner. More audio, means more transcribing.
Podcasting takes enough of your time. First you need to come up with great keywords for your title and description, write scripts, record the podcast, then editit all together. And that's just the beginning.
Next you have to market it, pushing it on social media, and now you have to find time to transcribe audio to text???
If you have ever tried audio transcription on your own, you don't need me to tell you it's tedious. And you don't just have one podcast episode.....so yeah, there's that too. There has to be a better way, right?
“There are additional optimizations you can do to increase retention rate and create a better user experience for your viewers. The first thing is to add subtitles or closed captions.”

Why You Need Captions and Transcripts
When search engines know what your content is about, they can put it in front of people looking for that content. Your content.
You will drive more people to your videos and podcasts with transcriptions and captions.
Accessibility for Everyone
According to the World Health Organization, 5% of the world has some form of hearing loss. That's 466 million people.
