If you host a video podcast, or produce any video along with your audio podcast, then you should be on YouTube!
I’m a fan of making things easy for your audience. You should especially want things to be easy for your potential audience to subscribe.
That’s where you can use the YouTube subscription link to encourage more people to subscribe to your YouTube channel.
It’s really easy! Make sure that your YouTube channel has its own ID (for example, The Audacity to Podcast’s YouTube channel ID is
noodleinstance), then replace my user ID in the following URL with yours.
If your channel has random characters and not a username (your channel URL would have
/channel/ in it instead of
/user/), then format the URL slightly differently.
If someone uses that link, they will be taken to your YouTube channel. If they are not already subscribed, they’ll see a front-and-center box prompting them to subscribe.
If the visitor is already subscribed to your channel, they will not see this subscription box, but will see you channel as they normally would.
But don’t stop there! Get Pretty Link Pro or Better Links Pro to make a friendly
/youtube URL that redirects to your subscription link.
You can easily use your new YouTube subscription link in emails, tweets, YouTube videos, comments, blog posts, podcast episodes, and more. I recommend that you place it on your front page with my Social Subscribe & Follow Icons plugin for WordPress.
