Add Strong CTA in Your YouTube End Cards

End cards appear at the last 5 – 20 seconds of the video. This is where you can promote your videos, playlists, merchandise and external websites.

Having the end screen keeps your audience to continue watching your videos instead of heading back to the homepage. Also, they might subscribe to your channel!

Log in to YouTube Studio and select ‘Content’ on the left menu. Choose a video you want to edit and click the ‘Cards’ box to add your cards. 

Think about 2 – 3 elements you want to put on your End Card.

  • Subscribe – clickable button to subscribe to your channel
  • Video or Playlist – send your audience to view a related and/or top-viewed video or playlist
  • Channel – take your audience to your YouTube channel
  • External website – send your audience to your website
