Video Editing and Subtitling Services
Whether you created your video marketing with a professional videographer, with me, or by yourself with an old camcorder, I can help you clean up that video and maximize your return on investment. Just a few short years ago, the thought of a small business creating its own commercial or other video-based marketing material seemed impossible: It was simply too difficult and the costs were astronomical. Today we have YouTube, Vimeo, and many other video sharing sites. In addition, there are also low cost advertising opportunities literal springing up everywhere from gas stations, to digital billboards, and even in places like public elevators.
To help you get your message out there on through these many mediums, you need a clean sharp message. To this end, I offer video editing services for your commercials and other promotional materials. Editing entails many things from shortening your video to fit in a predetermined time slot, making customized versions, adding smooth transitions and more. Using digital editing we can add overlays and other content to make it look more professional. Overlays can include names of people speaking on screen, section titles, links to your website, and important notes. Picture in Picture effects are even possible or we could turn your short video into an infomercial or shop-at-home style pictures with a description and item number overlay. We can transform your simple video into something amazing that will really wow your customers, whether your video is for a commercial, product presentation, or a non-promotional purpose.
In addition to video editing, Web Design Hero also offers transcription and subtitling services. With our services we can take your existing video and create time-synced subtitles either from a prepared script or by using our own ears. Subtitles are edited by hand to ensure that the text is on screen long enough to be read and to ensure that the screen does not get too cluttered. Subtitles can be prepared in any format that you wish or that your software or video publisher requires, including Adobe Encore, SubViewer, and SubRip which are compatible with YouTube. If required, subtitles can be converted into other languages by a professional translator â€“ instantly giving you access to new customers and world-wide markets. Your subtitles can be attached as a separate file or integrated into the actual audio file.
You may be wondering why subtitling/captioning is important for your media. Let me take a few moments to explain the many benefits of utilizing subtitles in your videos and other media such as PowerPoint and podcasts. First, there is the matter of accessibility. There are many people who are deaf or hard of hearing and you are missing out on this huge potential customer base who needs closed captions to "hear" your message. In addition, there are many occasions where your media may be presented without corresponding audio. For example, if your media is being display on digital signage a large part of your message may be lost, but with subtitles you can ensure your customers get the full message. In addition, many people view videos in the workplace or in other situations where they are unable to play audio. If your message is only available in audio you may lose that potential sale.
Furthermore, if you are interested in search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) subtitles are crucial to making sure your video content is properly indexed. Search engine spiders cannot understand video, flash, and other forms of multimedia. In most cases, if you are not using text to present your message you are missing out in the search engine game. With Web Design Hero's subtitling services you can get a leg up in the search engine rankings while still optimizing modern multimedia techniques. Without subtitles, you will be limited to just keywords both on your website and sites like YouTube. You wouldn't limit the search engine spiders to just a few words on your page, but without subtitles you are doing just that. Jump to the top of searches by giving the spiders your full story with subtitles.
