To monetize your YouTube account, you must learn how to add clickable links to your YouTube videos. That will direct many of your viewers to your other videos, blog, business site, or anywhere else you want them to go. It can be an excellent method for improving brand awareness. There are two different ways you can add links to your YouTube video. This article will teach them to you.

How to Add a Clickable Link Using a Card

Cards are popups that appear at preset times in a video or whenever a viewer clicks on the "I" in the corner of the video. To use cards, you need to be in the YouTube Partner Program with 1,000 subscribers in the last year and 4,000 hours of viewing. You can put links on these cards by following this procedure:

  1. Go to the YouTube Studio.
  2. Click on Content from the menu on the left-hand side.
  3. Locate the video you want to add a link to.
  4. Click on the Edit option.
  5. Click on Cards.
  6. Click on Add Card.
  7. Click on Link.
  8. Paste or click the link you want to add into the text field.
  9. Click on Apply.
  10. Select an image that you want to show with the link.
  11. Add details such as a title, teaser, and a call to action.
  12. Set the timeline marker to the place you want the card to appear.
  13. Click on Save.

How to Add a Clickable Link while Uploading Using the End Screen

The end screen is like a card that only appears at the end of the video. You do not need to satisfy any particular requirements to use it. To add an end screen link while you are uploading the video, follow this procedure:

  1. Go to the YouTube Studio.
  2. Click on Upload Videos.
  3. Select a video to upload.
  4. Upload a thumbnail for the link.
  5. Click on More Options.
  6. Add any subtitles, tags, and other details you need for the link.
  7. Click on Next.
  8. Select the End Screen option.
  9. Click on Add.
  10. Select one of the end screen choices.
  11. Click the + element.
  12. Enter the link address.

How to Add a Clickable Link to a Previously Uploaded Video Using the End Screen

If you want to add an end screen link to a video you have already uploaded, all you have to do is follow this procedure:

  1. Select the Content option from the menu on the left of the YouTube page.
  2. Select the video you want to add a link to.
  3. Click on End Screen.
  4. Click on the + element.
  5. Enter the link address.
