If you happened to read my post on how to get more YouTube subscribers you might have noticed that one of the methods was to add a YouTube subscribe button to your blog or website.
Any websites or blogs that are receiving a significant amount of traffic will definitely benefit from having a subscribe button since it makes it easier for visitors to follow you and keep up with you online.
There are buttons and widgets that you can use for any of your social media networks as a way to gain likes, followers, etc and if you’re creating videos and uploading them to YouTube then you’ll want to add the button for subscribers.
Anyone into internet marketing and promoting their own content should be familiar with YouTube as it’s the most popular video sharing sites with millions of people visiting every day.
I have two different channels and on my main channel I try to publish at least one video per week and I always make sure that the videos are SEO optimized so I can attract viewers and snowball that into more subscribers.
And thanks to having a subscribe button on my blog I’m continually able to gain new subs and grow my channel.
Well, enough rambling, let’s take a look at how you can get the button set-up on your blog or site.
Setting Up the YouTube Subscribe Button
Through YouTube it’s now possible to add a “Subscribe” button to just about any page on your blog or website.
This button will link directly to your channel and when it’s clicked the user will be directed to your channel where the subscription can be confirmed.
There are a few different ways you can configure the button to how it will be displayed on your site and you can even choose a few different configurations for paid channels as well.
Once you have configured the button with your preferences and channel information you can then go ahead and insert the JS code into the page where you want the button to be displayed.
This code can also be added into the sidebar as a text widget if you’re using WordPress or alternatively you can just use a widget if you’re looking for the easy way out.
Having the YouTube subscribe button on your site and on different pages that visitors are landing on will help you to gain more subscribers while driving more traffic to your videos at the same time.
With the button my videos are exposed to more people that are visiting my blog instead of those just browsing on YouTube and my content is shared with a greater number of individuals than if I were to just skip over having a button at all.
Setting it up is quite straightforward and I definitely recommend doing it if you’re into video content marketing at all.
