    Sorry, but I'm missing the connection here.

    What were all those people who arrived at your video looking for? Why would any of them click your link ?( what would they be looking for that they didn't get enough/still in your video ?)

    What was in the title and tags? Study your Insight and see who they were and where they have been coming from. Would those people be interested in your offer? Do they know/understand what your offer is about? What did your watermark say if anything ,besides a URL? How ugly was that URL ( are you redirecting a decent domain/subdomain ?)Do they actually see that clickable link without having to scroll down your description? What are the first words next to your URL - what they read without scrolling to see more - ?

    I'm getting 30%-50% CTR. Of course my numbers are small ( around 50 UV/day ) but VERY targeted.

    I've tested watermarking and not doing anything else ( no link, no annotations, no slide at the end with URL ) and conversions were horrible. When I added the slide with URL at the end and made it last more than a minute, it improved a little, but for my vids clicks were 1/5 of the normal rate.

    Two main points for me are the last slide suggesting to click the link on the right and the link at the beginning of the description with a good phrase next to it.

    all depends on what you are watermarking... sexy vids seem extremely played out (its getting harder and hard to get tons of views because its saturation) and also the way your watermark looks will affect conversions. i was making $50-$150 or more each day for since late october but i got too greedy and my account got banned..
    :violin: now i gotta start from scratch again and build up my daily $
