Are you looking for a YouTube branding watermark maker ?

To encourage your audience to subscribe to your channel, you can add a personalized subscribe button at the bottom right of your videos.

When you add a watermark, viewers can directly subscribe to your channel if they hover over the watermark when using YouTube on a computer. In this video, I will show you how to create this branding watermark for free for your channel and how to add it on every single video, to get more subscribers.

To get started, please note that Branding watermarks are not available on videos set as made for kids. If you previously added a branding watermark, but your video is now set as made for kids, viewers won’t see the watermark.

 Also, this custom subscribe button, is available in landscape mode on mobile devices and computers but for the moment they are not clickable on mobile.

For this subscribe button, you have two options: find a subscribe button that is already done or create your own button like me.

How to create a subscribe button?

To create a free one, I recommend using CANVA.  If you don’t know yet Canva, it is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters and other visual content. 

The Image for a YouTube branding Watermark must be square, with a minimum of 150×150 pixels, and less than 1MB in size. YouTube recommends that you use a transparent background rather than a solid one and include just one color in the image. This style of background can be less distracting and intrusive especially on small screens.
