    Where is better to put download link and why? Is it better to create a nice landing page with nice download button or simply put download link in the youtube description?

    I'd place a landing page in the description instead of a download link.

    The best way is to test both. It all depends on the video & file.

    Direct linking: If your video shows everything about the application, how it works, how to configure it and etc. you can go with direct link.

    Explanation: If the user watched the whole video, he'll know what to do and all he needs at this point is to download the file and do the things he saw.



    Landing page: If your video shows just that the application actually works and doesn't include any other instructions, then you can think about landing page, where you'll describe how the magic happens.

    Explanation: Let's say your viewer found what he's looking for, he saw that it works but he's kinda confused how to use it. Then the super hero(you) comes with nice landing page with all information needed in order to make the application works. Plus you can include some Facebook like/share button, Twitter button and etc. to drive even more traffic to your app.

    You'll have better cr with a landing page .However it take a lot of time to do for example for 10 niches.
    If you have only 1 niche you can go with a landing page while if you have several niches (10 and more) go with video description :)

    really depends on the video. like the above post if the video has already shown the user everything then download link is fine. i wold test both and see what is working better for yourself. everyone is different
