Build YouTube Subscribers Using Annotation Tool

An easy way to get more subscribers to your YouTube channel is to simply ask for them. At the end of each one of my One-Minute Marketing Tip videos is a subscription button, but I have to create a link. That’s called an ‘annotation‘. The way you do that is click on Video Manager. In Video Manager, click on the video that you’ve uploaded and you want to edit. Then, click on Annotation.

Here we’re going to add an annotation. I like to use the spotlight, and I’m going to hover over my subscription button here. Click Link, and paste my subscription link in. You’ll notice that this annotation starts at a minute 14. That’s when this video pops up, and then I stretch it towards the end of the video, and I’m done. I’ve now clicked or created an annotation for people to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
