7 Ways to Use the YouTube Direct-to-Subscribe Link

Just having a link that gets people to subscribe to your channel isn’t enough.  You need people to see the link, and get them to click it!  Below are seven unique ways you can use the Direct-to-Subscribe Link to increase your YouTube Fan base!  Note:  For best results, give people a reason to subscribe first (ie. produce great content on a consistent basis)

1.  YouTube Video Descriptions
Add your subscribe link inside the descriptions of all your Past, Present and Future YouTube videos with a strong call to action

Post a cool image or screen shot teasing your fans with an upcoming video and  let people know they need to subscribe to “stay tuned.”

    I just saw something about this on tv. It talked the same things
    you wrote about.
    I go to university in Canada and we just now are learning about this in
    our class. Thanks for helping me with the last part of my report.

    Thanks for the outline of television stuff.
    I definitely think that cable tv is going to go away.
    Or at least have to change with the times.
    Internet tv is totally the wave of the future. As internet speeds get quicker, people
    will be watching their tv shows on sites like this.

    What do you know about this? I think there’s a lot more to the concept
    I was just watching this on TV last week. They discussed the same things you wrote about.
