Getting Started

The download also includes a ZIP file that has the SRT (closed caption) files in it for the Ask The Vet, Pet Tales, and Who Rescued Who? videos.

So now what do I do?

Download the files, upload them to your Facebook page, blog, Twitter, website, or Instagram (those that are short enough!) add a short description, and share away!

How do I use the SRT files?

Download and unzip the SRT files. When uploading your video to Facebook, click the “Captions” tab. Then click on the “upload SRT” file button and choose the correct caption file for the video you’re uploading. That’s it!

What should I write on the posts?

Each post you add to your social media should have some sort of description with it, but it doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) long. One to three sentences is usually the max you should write, and it could be additional information, a short description of the video, or a call to action (like to buy a related product or redeem a coupon). For example, for the Who Rescued Who video, you could put the sentence we used above to describe the video, plus a sentence that says, “Tell us how your pet rescued you, and you’ll be entered for the chance to win a free widget!” or “Do you have a rescue pet? Use the coupon “RESCUE” for 20% your entire order.”

Can I add my branding to the videos?

Definitely. Create a new open or ending or add your logo as a bug, they’re yours to use. You just can’t edit anything out of the story.
