What is the YouTube follow button?

The YouTube follow button, or YouTube subscribe button, lets visitors instantly subscribe to your YouTube channel. On YouTube, “subscribing” doesn’t cost any money – it just lets you follow that channel so that new content from it appears on your homepage.

When someone comes to your website and likes your content, they can easily click the YouTube follow button to subscribe to your YouTube channel. If you’re engaged in any sort of video marketing, you’ll want to be on YouTube, so this button is pretty much a must-have.

How can I create a YouTube follow button or subscribe button?

If you have a YouTube channel, you’ll want to let your website visitors know about it! That means having an easy way for them to subscribe – especially if you’re embedding videos on your website (which you likely will be). Make sure that they can sign up if they like what they’re seeing.

YouTube itself has instructions for creating a subscribe button, and if you’re good with the techy side of things and comfortable with JavaScript and HTML code, you might find this route works for you. 

Otherwise, you can easily go the code-free route using a button like ShareThis’s YouTube follow button: it’s super-simple to install. 

What type of YouTube videos could I create?

But YouTube isn’t just a venue for – let’s face it, slightly odd! – online entertainment. It’s also a great place for video marketing. Whatever you sell through your website, you could probably come up with suitable content for a YouTube video. For instance, if you sell products aimed at busy parents, you could create videos with parenting tips; if you create software to help non-native speakers learn English, you could create short free teaching videos that you upload to YouTube to help market your software.

How can I get more YouTube subscribers?

Whether you’re a dedicated YouTuber, or whether YouTube forms part of your content marketing strategy, you’re not going to succeed if no one is watching your videos.

Building a solid subscriber base can take time, but some great ways to speed up the process are to:
