Online videos are a great way to connect with your viewers.  Making videos available online can help your company gain thousands or even millions of viewers all over the world, for very little cost.  Using video also helps to build and establish trust with potential clients, as well as helping build your brand and convey helpful or informative information to your viewers.  Online videos can also be used by tutors to help students to learn from the comfort of their own home.

There is just one problem…  Getting found amongst all the other videos available on the internet!

If you or your business uses video to connect with your clients or potential clients, it may be well worth your time to invest in having your videos professionally transcribed.  Having your videos transcribed can help you to connect with a wider audience, such as those who are deaf or hard of hearing.  Video transcripts are also extremely useful for marketing your videos, as the text that is written in your transcripts can be indexed by the search engines.  This means that you can include whatever keywords you are targeting, to attract viewers who will find the information presented useful.  If you plan on submitting your videos to Google videos, then we can format your transcripts correctly and include time codes to make sure that they are perfectly in sync with your video and can be found by the right people, when searching for relevant information.
