Get More Subscribers And Click Thrus From YouTube Videos

Getting more subscribers and more click throughs on your videos is vital for any marketer or entrepreneur looking to maximize their video marketing strategies.

If you can increase the number of people who become a subscriber to your YouTube Channel and/or click through to your website where you can get them on your list, or even sell them a product, this will dramatically increase your profits.

In this video I show you how one simple addition can increase your subscribers and click throughs simply and easily…

One of the most asked questions I was asked in my Quick ScreenCast Profits program was how to get a link on a YouTube video.

When the program was released, it wasn't possible.  But since YouTube now allows you to have external links on your video annotions, being able to link directly from your video has become a lot easier.

In todays video, I show you how you can make one simple addition to your video which will help increase your subscribers to your YouTube Channel, as well as clicks to your website.

To set up your video like mine, I've included the template below.  Included in the zip file are PNG files at different sizes for different video sizes, the Photoshop file in different sizes so you can edit that file if you have Photoshop and also the YouTube Channel subscription URL to use on your Subscription link.

Click here to download the YouTube Graphic Template.

The steps to take, in a nutshell, are to:

  • add the graphic on a layer above your video in whatever video editor you're using
  • Export that video and upload to YouTube
  • Add a Spotlight Annotation around the area you want to link from
  • Add the links to each Spotlight Annotation to the Subscription URL and another to your Associated Website.

And that's basically it.

Feel free to use this to increase your click throughs on your videos and get more subscribers to your Channel as much as you want.

If you have any questions about how to use this method or have any comments in general, please feel free to ask in the Comments section below. 🙂

    • Hey Rod,

      Thanks very much for the heads up.

      In the rush to get the post out to you, I’ve forgotten the link. It’s now there thanks 🙂

  2. David,

    There is no link beneath the video yo access the template

  3. Is there a way to do this to videos already published on Youtube?

    • Hey George,

      Thanks very much for your question.

      The quick answer is no, there isn’t a way to do this with existing videos. But that doesn’t mean to say that there isn’t some sort of ninja workaround.

      I’ll have a look and see what I can find. And if I find a way of doing it, you can be guaranteed I’ll do a video about it 🙂

  4. hey David, thanks for this great tips. can you recommend me any video editing software and youtube uploader software that you use(free and paid)? it seems hard for me to upload youtube video directly… thanks

    • Hi Ismail,

      Thanks very much for your comment.

      I’m actually doing a post/video on software very soon, so look out for that.

      For YouTube uploaders, I’m not familiar with any as I use the uploader on YouTube.

      If you’re having a problem with it, have you tried it on different browsers, as it could just be that. Try Google Chrome, as it’s Google’s own product. If it’s happening with all your browsers, then there may be something wrong with your computer.

      Keep an eye out for the video/post coming soon about software 🙂

      David
