    Hi all.
    Is it compatible with Youtube policy to post my Amazon affiliation link onto the 'About' page of my Youtube Channel?
    (If so, I'd like to post it, asking subscribers to support my channel by using the link whenever they shop at Amazon.)
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I use Tiny URLs and have never had a problem.

    Thank you for the answer.
    If that is the case, I'd like to add one to my 'about' page as well.

    BTW, how much % of your subscribers actually use the affiliation link on your behalf?
    My guess maybe 0.1%?
    Oh is it even lower, like 0.001%?

    It depends on how compelling your video is, how good your CTA is, etc.

    Make the video short (1:00 - 1:30), keep their attention long enough for them to stay to the end to hear your CTA, and leave the CTA hanging on the screen 20-30 secs after your video is done, so they don't see all those suggested videos and click away. Have the CTA with a big red arrow pointing down, TELL them what to do.

    Or get one of those video PLRs with somebody on screen speaking the CTA after your main video.

    I prefer the big silent arrow with text though.
