Full Video Annotations
Full video annotations are annotations that are located in the top or bottom corners of the video, and they link to previous videos you’ve uploaded. These could be previous and future videos in a series, related videos to the one that you are currently watching, and any other videos that are on your channel. These videos can literally link to any of your videos as long as they are there. I get over 20,000 clicks/month from annotations that run the full length of my videos, so these annotations are most defiantly worth adding.
A watermark is an image that you add to a bottom or top corner of your video. This image could be your logo, avatar, or something else that relates to you and your brand. What you want to do with this watermark is put an annotation over this watermark and make it so viewers can click on it to subscribe to your channel. I get 200-300 subscribers every single month from watermark annotations. There is no way I won’t put a watermark on my videos these days.
Outro annotations are added to the end of videos, and usually are over a graphic. As far as getting a graphic to use, we recommend using our designer matchmaking service to find someone to make a graphic for you. Once you’ve got a graphic, it needs to have places to put previous videos that you’ve created. You will take and put annotations over these videos, and it gives your viewers a place to take their energy after they finish your current video. They are most likely going to keep watching YouTube videos, so you might as well give them an option to keep watching yours!
