How to Change the End Screen on your Vimeo Videos

Posted by Peter Stassa on Jan 2, 2018 10:00:00 AM

An "end screen" is what will show up after your embedded video finishes playing. Rather than having the video go to a blank screen or back to the thumbnail image, adding a custom end screen will help you drive engagement and conversions by letting your viewers know where to go next.

On Vimeo, you can use your video's end screen to:

• Direct the viewer to other videos you'd like them to watch
• Add a call to action to send them to a specific webpage
• Encourage them to share your video on social media and through email
• Collect their email address to add to your mailing list
• Add a custom image or text
• Set your video to loop

How to add captions to your online videos and why you should

Posted by Peter Stassa on Nov 30, 2017 2:37:20 PM

Adding captions is an important part of producing online video. Not only do captions help with accessibility for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing, but they also help your videos get more views.

How does adding captions get my video more views?

Search engines like Google can't listen to the audio in your video. Instead they crawl the video looking for text in order to determine the content and display it in the appropriate search results. They find this text in the description and tags that you've added, as well as in the caption file if you've added one.

Tips & Tricks for Using PowerPoint in your Business Presentation

Posted by Candice Moore on Aug 2, 2017 11:09:36 AM

Our most popular blog post in the last year is one that we posted back in February of 2016 about how to use video in your PowerPoint presentation. This post still gets the most views on our blog each month.

Since this seems to be a popular subject, we decided to create a new post with some tips and tricks for using PowerPoint in your business presentation. These tips will improve the experience for your on-site audience even if you are not recording the presentation.

These tips are all based on PowerPoint 2013 and newer.


1. Set your slides up as 16:9 rather than 4:3

This is the first thing you should do whenever you use PowerPoint. Having your slides set up as 16:9 gives you more space to use for your content than if you choose to use 4:3 slides. It also allows you to insert widescreen HD videos and have them play full screen in the slide rather than shrunk down and letterboxed.
