Fast-forward almost 25 years later, and it is true that the Internet has vastly grown, and the importance of content has increased immensely. However, it’s not just any content dominating the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: the king of content today and in the foreseeable future is video.

The proliferation of video on the web is a double-edged sword for content creators. On the one hand more people are looking for your videos. Yet, on the other hand, humans today have a shorter attention span than a goldfish.

That means to catch someone’s attention in a crowded marketplace, you need to use every tactic available, including adding subtitles.


Many social media platforms mute their videos by default and a lot of people scroll through their feeds at high speeds. Therefore, to get an idea of what your video is about, you will need words on the bottom of your screen to get potential viewers to stop.

However, manually typing the subtitles yourself is time-consuming. A better option is to get someone else to provide you with an SRT file for free.

Yes, I said FREE!
