    Hello guys,

    I have a 22 minutes YT video which promotes a CB product.

    Now I am wondering about the optimum time to put the annotation which wants people to go to the description to click the hop link.
    Now the annotation is at minute 18, but I guess some people don't watch the video till minute 18. So /do you have any experience in this regard?

    Thanks.

    3 minutes long , promoting cb product? What a BS! Dont listen to him you are doing well.

    In my experience with CB products annotation can be even at very end of the movie, even the movie is longer than 25minutes.

    I am afraid of losing some potential customers by putting the annotation at the end of the video buddy.

    It is really bad that some visitors don't care by themselves that they should take a look at the description after watching a YT video!
    Furthermore It was great if YT let us to put a clickable annotation or something like that in the videos which I guess can increase the number of clicks...

    Depends on type of the video.

    For testimonial, it is crazy to have 20 min video. Nobody on fiverr would record that shit.

    But for whiteboard animations, compilations, etc... it is quite OK.
