YouTube Thursdays - Adding Elements to your YouTube Videos

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - August 9, 2018

 

Last week, we promised to show you how to add a video suggestion and a subscribe call-to-action to the end of your videos in YouTube. Speaking of last week, if you want to learn how to add a trailer to your YouTube Channel, here's how to do it. 

 

It might be easier to follow if you view the video tutorial in full-screen.  If you want to add a link to a website, YouTube now requires 1000 subscribers, and 4,000 hours of viewing within the last 12 months. If you don't have that option under the "add elements," that's the reason. Also, your video has to be at least 25 seconds to add an end screen element. Plus, for some reason, you have to choose at least two elements to add. 

 

 

 

Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo! 

 

 

Today, we feature Lisa Heindel 's YouTube Channel Cresent City Living  - specifically check out this neighborhood video. The music is perfect for New Orleans - and love the natural sound. It's the way to attract clients.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

I love Lisa's videos of NOLA.  It shows how much they love where they live and work.

Thanks for this easy tutorial.

I liked her second video even more. Just drew me in to New Orleans, the people, the vibe.

It's amazing, too, that when I clicked over to YouTube, I received a notice that now YouTube would start sending me notifications, and updates, and newsletters and whatnot, so I had to go to settings and turn that off. They don't really give you that option unless you look for it.

I was an early adopter on YouTube and had great success with it but the past few years have kept me distracted with other projects.  I'm glad I took a moment to read your post.  The 1,000 subscribers rule is not a nice thing to discover.  It used to be a lot easier but if nothing else, the internet is always evolving and pressure to improve makes for a better product for our viewers.  Time to change (again).  Cheers!  My best neighborhood video:  Ybor City: Tampa's Hottest Historical and Entertainment District   After seeing the work you featured, I realize I have to step up my game.

Debb and Bernie, you are incredibly generous with your knowledge. I appreciate you sharing it with us more than you know. Lisa Heindel'a neighborhood video is excellent, really gives a great sample of what it's like to live in Lakeview.

Thanks Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , I've never had more than 130 views, let alone "SUBSCRIBERS!" Only a dozen subscribers! !  I have to figure how to make these things go "VIRAL"!

Great information, Debb! I don't have the 1,000 subscribers it takes but, perhaps by the time I retire, I will! LOL

I was playing around in elements yesterday, trying to tweak a video for a neighborhood post. I do wish it was a bit more user-friendly. It takes a bit to figure out where you need to be!

And, I love Lisa's channel and have been following her for years - she lives and breathes what she posts and does a wonderful job with her videos too. If you want 'real' in NOLA, she's the one to call!
