Why Should You Add Text to Photo?

Text can be used to highlight key features or benefits of a product, provide additional context or explanations, or call attention to a specific offer or call-to-action. In some cases, text can also be used to accommodate viewers who may be watching the video with the sound off or who have hearing impairments. By including text on your marketing videos, you can increase engagement and make your message more accessible to a wider audience.
