A YouTube channel and a newsletter are two very different things. But there’s one thing they have in common: as you add new subscribers, both your YouTube Channel subscribers and email list will grow along with the rest of your business!
So what’s the best way to get people on board? You can make it easy for them by adding a subscribe button to your videos. Here is an easy way to help you know more about subscribe button.
First: Sign in to YouTube and go to “Creator Studio.”
Next: Select the Video Manager tab in the top menu bar. Then click on “Video End Cards” under the video manager heading. You may need to scroll down a bit to see the feature.
Click “Add a card” to create your subscribe button.
Now, YouTube gives you a few options for how to position your Subscribe Button: in-video end cards only, in-video overlay cards only, or both!. We recommend choosing both if you have the bandwidth and storage space for it! This way, you can reach as many of your fans as possible.
Next: Create a button by choosing one from the template gallery and customize it with your text. In this example, we’ll be making an “in-video end card” button. After you’ve customized it to suit your channel, click save!
Now that you’ve created your subscribe button, you’ll see a preview of how it will look with the video.
First: click on “Advanced Settings” to set up the settings for your Subscribe Button card.
Choose what aspects of your channel subscribers should be able to get into – whether they can go straight to your Channel page or if they need to click “Show more” to see your latest videos!
Next: decide which countries you’d like your Subscribe Button card to show up in.
Finally, choose whether or not you want the button to show up for mobile users and which thumbnail you want it to contain – all of this will be consistent across all devices where the subscribe button is visible.
Once you’re done here, click “Save and Exit.” Then, click the Publish button!
That’s it! It’s highly recommended that you inform your viewers about this new feature by including a link in the description box of your video explaining how to subscribe to your channel!
