How To Create YouTube Video Annotation Templates
Hey how’s it goin’ everyone? This is your happy-go-lucky YouTube expert, Derral Eves. Now I’ve done a lot of annotations over my time. I’ve put them in every type of video, and they can still be effective if people are actually watching on desktop. Now here’s the thing, putting annotations in YouTube is a pain, but what if there’s an easier way? There is an easier way, so if you’re interested, stay tuned. – [Voiceover] derraleves.com – [Derrel] Now before I can actually show you how to create annotation templates with TubeBuddy, you’ve got to make sure that you install TubeBuddy, and you can do that at tubebuddy.com/go. You can find a link in the description below as well. So let’s go ahead and jump right in. Now once TubeBuddy’s installed, you can actually come over here for a quick link, save you a lot of time. I actually have a video to show you how to do quick links. And the navigation on it’s really cool. We’re right here on the specific video, so you can to go to any specific video. I want you to hit Edit. And the great thing about this is what you’ll do is go into Annotations, so I have Annotations right here, and right down here, let’s go ahead and hit pause real quick, right down here, you can say Use this Video as an Annotation Template, so I’m gonna go ahead and do that. And I have different videos that have different types of annotations that I use, and the great thing about it, this is gonna speed up the process to say, okay, this is a video that has a Subscribe button, and also three different videos that are there. We’re gonna use this as a template. I’m gonna go ahead and hit Apply. Now the next time they actually upload a video and it’s actually done processing, you can actually use those annotation templates that you actually created. Now you can see that my upload is done, and this is just a test one, and you come down here below that, you’re able to see right now that you can apply annotations template, and basically you can choose your template type. I’m gonna go ahead and do that. And I’m gonna hit OK. Now once that’s done, TubeBuddy’s really smart, ’cause it basically will use smart timing and ensure that the annotations get applied to the correct location in that upload. So I went ahead and hit applied. I’m gonna go ahead, hit Done, and we’re gonna go to the specific video. And let’s go ahead and hit Annotations, and you’re able to see right there that annotations were applied right at the right time. And the great thing about it, if you have to adjust, say hey, it’s there, but you already have your template, all you gotta do is just change out your links and you’re good to go. And this, literally, has saved me a ton of time.
