How To Create and Setup YouTube Cards Template
Hey, everyone. This is your crazy YouTube expert, Derral Eves. Now, YouTube cards is a way that you can interface with a viewer. You know, you can send them to a different video, a different playlist, merchandise. You can send them off of YouTube to your website. It’s really cool, and the great thing about it is this works on mobile, this works on desktop, so it really brings that experience together. Well, the thing for me is I work a lot on YouTube and I wish there was like little tweaks that makes you more efficient with cards and with other things. And so if you’re interested in really improving the way you do cards and having a process for that, then you need to watch this video. (powerful music) – [Voiceover] derraleves.com – [Derral] Now I’m going to show you how to create card templates. Now, the first thing that you’re gonna need is TubeBuddy, and you can get it for free at TubeBuddy.com/go, and once it’s downloaded you’ll be able to get to the Video Manager pretty quick by just clicking right here and and then clicking My Videos. Now, this will get you the Video Manager and into the Videos, and what you need to do next is get to where the cards are actually placed. So this video right here has a card, and I wanna create a template out of that card, and so let’s go ahead and click Cards right up here. And basically it’s gonna launch the video that has the cards. And if you don’t have any cards, you can actually put your cards in here. Now, with YouTube cards you can have up to five cards. So if this video template has two cards, then the template’s gonna only copy two cards. If you have another template that you create that has five cards, you can do that as well. So for this example I’m gonna only keep it with one card, and right down here below it says, “Use this Video as a Card Template,” so let’s go ahead and do that, and we’ll go ahead and hit the back button. Now, the great thing about it, that actually just created a template for us to use the next time that we actually upload a video, so let me show you where that’s at. Okay, now that the video’s actually uploaded, what you can do is just kind of mouse down and you can see right here you can apply templates, so basically this is the template that we used and all you gotta do is hit Apply and it’ll give you a little thing, are you sure you wanna do this? Yes. And once it’s done, it basically does smart timing and it says it’s done, and you are done. Now, so let’s go jump right into the video real quick, and I wanna show you that it just applied that specific card. See, that’s how simple it really is. Now, I really love this tool. I really do. I’m dedicating a lot of my time in showing you how cool it can really speed up your workflow. There’s a few videos I made over here about TubeBuddy, and if you haven’t downloaded it yet, (chuckles) there’s a link in description below. Now, guys, I’m here to tell you there are some amazing things that this tool does, and I can’t wait in the upcoming days to show you everything that this does and how it saves me at least 10 to 12 hours a week.
