Have you started a new YouTube channel? Yes! It may be a great hurdle for you to increase the subscribers and people apply different tactics for increasing their subscribers list. You would be seen a clickable subscribe button or link on many videos on YouTube to encourage new subscribers. I also loved this method for increasing YouTube subscribers.
This subscribe button on YouTube is important because after publicly sharing video on YouTube, it is searchable by Youtubers on YouTube and search engines and if somebody visits your video via search and likes it, there is a possibility to click on that subscribe button on your video.
So, in this post I will tell you, how to add a clickable subscribe button or link to your YouTube videos. You will have to add this button or link individually in every video.
Add Subscribe Link or Button to YouTube Videos
Honestly, it is very easy to add a clickable Subscribe button to your YouTube videos. For this first of all, visit YouTube and sign in to your account.
After signing in to YouTube, go to your channel by clicking on My Channel link as shown in following picture.
Now, in your YouTube channel, you’ve to go to Video Manager and you will find it above the cover photo of your channel.
Here you will find collection of your published videos that you can edit, delete, unlist etc. You need to click on drop down button beside Edit in front of the video in which you wanna add subscribe button. And then select Annotations from the drop down list.
Now, one by one first of all add an annotation that can be a Speech Bubble, Note, Title, Spotlight and Level. However I use Note for this purpose. After that, add the text to place on the button for example – “Subscribe this channel” and finally set up the start and ending time to show the button. Other settings can also be done like font size, background color of button etc.
Now, its time to make this button clickable. So, scroll down the same page and check on Link option. Click on drop down button, choose Subscribe and enter your YouTube username.
After doing these all things, just save the changes and that’s all. Now you can check out your video, it will show a subscribe button in the selected duration.
So, I hope there should not be any problem in applying the above steps as they are very simple to perform. Nonetheless, if you gets any issue or stuck anywhere, feel free to ask me via comments, I will be happy to help you.
