In trying to grow your YouTube audience having an easy way for your viewers to subscribe is KEY. When adding a watermark to your videos it adds a graphical way for your audience to subscribe to your Channel.
YouTube provides you with something called Invideo Programming. It allows you to upload a small version of your logo/branding and have a DIRECT link to subscribe to your channel.
In this video we take a look at the new YouTube feature “TrendsMap”. This map allows you to look accross the USA (Currently only in USA) and see what videos are the most Shared and Viewed in your specific region. You can sort it by Gender, Age Group, and Views/Shares.
In this video tutorial I show you how to easily add clickable links to your Youtube video descriptions.
Youtube is a great way to drive traffic back to your website OR blog. In order to do this you need to have clickable links in your video description so that your viewers can click on them and go to your external sites.
Here is how you do that:
1.) Open up your edit panel for the video that you want to add the clickable link to.
2.) Make SURE that you type the HTTP:// in front of your links to make them clickable.
3.) Once you have added all of your links in the description go ahead and click the save button in the lower or upper corner of the screen and you now will have clickable links in your Youtube video descriptions.
As you continue in your YouTube career there are certain things that will make or break your channel. Playlists are one of those things. If you have videos that are related to the same subject it is mandatory if you want to get the most views possible to create a playlist for those videos. If someone is watching a video about youtube in all likelihood they are going to want to watch other videos about youtube.
