How to add a Subscribe Button to All Your YouTube Videos.

A friend of mine noticed the nifty little feature I just added to all of my YouTube videos, the little popup on the bottom right hand corner that allows people to easily subscribe to your channel. You may have seen it on some popular YouTube channels and wondered what it is, and was tempted after a few minutes to click on it.


I was happy to write it up, but figured, hey, why not share it on my blog as I'm sure some of you would be interested as well!

The great thing about the new subscribe buttons is that you can customize it to whatever you like, even your head, it's unobtrusive, and it encourages people to subscribe to your channel. Here's how to do it, and an example on my videos.


If you want to see it in action, I have mine set up to popup after 5 seconds and stay there the entire video. You can edit it to come and go as you please, but so far the standard popup after a few seconds and leaving it there has driven good curiosity and subscribers to my channel.

This is a video I made from when I went scuba diving last month in Koh Phi Phi Thailand. Check it out, and click my head when it pops up to see what it does.



How to add it to your channel:

Step 1: Go to My Channel then Video Manager in your YouTube Account.

Step 2: Click on Channel then Branding

Step 3: Under Branding watermark upload your photo or logo

Step 4: Set when you want your logo to pop up

That's it! It'll now appear on all of your YouTube videos!

How to Make Your Head:

The reason why I chose my head, aside from seeing it on another channel, is because it's small, non-obtrusive, and I kind of just like it. 

Here's how to make it.

Step 1: Choose a photo, ideally with a simple or solid colored background.

Step 2: Use an editing program such as Photoshop or the free one at Pixlr.com 




Step 3: Delete the background around your head

Step 4: Crop the photo so it's a circle. 

Step 5: Save it as a .png file so it saves the transparent background.

That's it!

    1. Hey unknown. It's automatic. When users hover over it they'll get a "subscribe prompt" and if they click it it'll take them to your channel.

    1. Have you tried it? What's your channel URL?

    2. Thank you for sharing.
      I just wanted to re-ask as well. I followed steps to add watermark and it only adds picture with link to the channel itself for me as well, and it shows only the channel name when I hover over the image...

      My channel URL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf0UsYMrFt7Pft8UHOVJPhA

      I was wondering if that is because I am logged in and that maybe prompt will look different for logged out used, but it still look the same if I log out.

    3. I just checked your cat channel and it doesn't like you have it installed at all.

  4. This doesn't add a subscribe button, it just adds an image that links to your channel page....

  5. Strange, I do have a watermark installed, just the way you described in the post here, it is a photo of a cat in the bottom right corner on every video.

    Here is a screenshot from the channel setting, just to show you the picture:

    I can see it when I am logged in or logged out. When I hover over it I can see my channel name, when I click on it I get redirected to the channel page, there is no "subscribe" functionality on the hover over action. I don't know, maybe it is related to the fact that my channel is small and not that popular, but it would be nice to know the reason for sure...

    1. In the screenshot it looks like it's working correctly. Not sure what's going on sorry! I do know that Youtube changes it all of the time as they're still trying to figure out what they want to do with that button!

  6. Maybe it requires time until it is fully enabled or maybe I need some more action on the channel to get this working properly, I am too small of the channel to be bothered with by youtube perhaps :) Anyway, thank you for looking into it.
