Text is not only a useful addition to any video, helping to give audiences more information than the footage and voiceover allows, it is often a necessity when videos are auto-played on social media.

Check out this Wochit article by Jenn Molina and Brendan Lahr, who explain how you can use text to benefit your video content.

"Text-overlay is now as much a part of social video as the moving image," they write, explaining how to use colour, font size, text length and the right wording for a more engaging piece.

"With viewing happening on-the-go more and more, it will continue to be an important element of every video publisher's push out online."
