Tutorial 03 – YouTube’s end screens

There’s a lot of content to choose from on YouTube, and if you’re able to get people to watch your content to the end – you’re doing a good job. YouTube end screens allows you to position some elements on the screen during the last 20 s of a video. Here we have an opportunity to:

  • suggest content to the user
  • suggest they subscribe
  • provide a link to another channel
  • provide a link to a website
    • pre-approved merchandise or crowdfunding
    • your own website (need to add code to your website for this)

I’d recommend starting by looking at the templates available. Templates make it really easy; firstly you can design an end screen in your video which works well with the template of your choice, secondly they make creating end screens faster.

This tutorial assumes you’ve left black video, or a space reserved in no more than the last 20 s of your video for the end screen elements. If you’re using a template:

  • Choose “Use Template…”
  • Click the one, hit select

Then on the right side of YouTube’s end screen interface, click the pencil to edit each one in turn, then save everything. Definitely experiment, make changes then watch it back – you can always jump in again, and edit until you’re satisfied.

Regardless of the fanciness of your end screen – I definitely think its more important to use them than ignore them! If viewers are watching full screen, the end screen allows you to put your content front and centre without competition – definitely take advantage of that.

I think the simplest end screen possible would be:

  • fade to black
  • run no more than 20 s of silence, music, or some other audio

Over black you can position your elements anywhere.
