If you are making videos for YouTube, you may have considered adding an animated subscribe button in your video. It encourages your viewers to subscribe to your channel.

While most people think of YouTube is a video platform and they are right, many forget that YouTube is also a social media platform with video as the main component.

Many people ask me for advice on my channel because I’m seen as a source of knowledge. Getting them to subscribe is having a closer connection with you.

Asking people to take action is a key whether it is to subscribe, download something, click on something. I’ve seen the stats from YouTube on my own channel.

Let me know what you think. Do you include animated graphics like a subscribe button for your video?
