    Hey all,

    Just a quick one, I was wanting to share ideas on where you place your annotations or titles in your videos and when? I personally stopped using annotations (for just non clickeable stuff) and replaced them with titles, they just look better to me personally. I tend to put the same message at the very start and end of the videos.

    I am yet to check the difference in close rate etc as I am waiting to get a good time maybe a 2 week period, then check analytics, although I am not sure yet if titles show up like annotations do in analytics. Anyway, any tips would be welcome.

    Thanks

    Have them not appear for the first 10 seconds of the video then appear on the screen for 30 seconds. It makes the viewer realize it is there and not zone out. I usually put it in the bottom left hand corner by the play button so it is easier to see as well.
