    Forget watermarking your videos (actually still do that), why not just put links ON your videos? This is how you get FREE clickable links.

    Sign in to your youtube account.

    Then go here -> http://www.youtube.com/advertise/en/adwords.html

    Click on Get Started With Video Adwords.

    You will be creating an account or you can link it with your adwords account. Youtube / google will want your CC and will charge you $5 to set up your account.

    Once you have your account setup, you can do promotional videos, create an ad campaign, and put a link on a video. Now you have a clickable link on your video!

    ...finally, pause the campaign and the link will remain, but you won't be charged when people click on it. :D

    I'm sure some would like more detail, so you can check the video below.

    Obviously, I'm not the original source (just passing along), and since there is a video on youtube explaining how to do this, youtube doesn't care if people do it I'd imagine.

    You're welcome!

    That's what I thought, but since I got this link from a private forum you need to pay to be a part of, I wanted to be extra safe.

    I wasn't here 8 months ago.. it's new to me. Could be new to others? Guess I should have done a forum search. Been working too hard lately, so a bit burned out.. and living up to my name apparently, haha.
    I would assume so? Check the tos or one of the people who've been doing this for months might have better feedback LOL.

    Stupid Smurf is Stupid. :pat:

    That's great beatguy!

    On another notes.. Oh wow, some idiot negative repped me telling me not to claim other people's methods as my own? I never claimed it was you idiot.

    I may be stupid and this method was new to me, but that's better than being an idiot who neg reps people for trying to share. Be better than that dude, or go to WF and buy WSO's. That's what idiots are supposed to do. ;D
