Get More YouTube Subscribers? (Easy with watermark)

To maximize organic search on YouTube, the second-largest website in the world, getting more free YouTube subscribers is the way to go.

Easier said than done? There are many techniques available, but did you implement this one?
Get More YouTube Subscribers? (Easy with watermark)
Rather than relying on the common request for viewers to subscribe to your channel, which has become somewhat unoriginal due to its widespread usage, you can employ a more engaging technique called the Watermark.

Have you ever noticed that certain channels have a watermark positioned at the bottom right of their videos? Oftentimes, this watermark is the same image as the channel's profile picture. When a viewer clicks on the watermark, it triggers a subscribe call-to-action.

However, it's unlikely that many viewers would instinctively click on a profile picture while watching a video. So, what if you could change the watermark to a clear and prominent "SUBSCRIBE" button?

Let's give it a try!

Before you start

You have the freedom to use any logo or image as your watermark. However, we highly recommend using a bright red color for maximum visibility and clarity. Ensure that the call-to-action text is as clear and concise as possible. To make things easier for you, we offer a FREE download of the image we use for our watermark.
