    I came across this youtube video today and i am wondering how was the call to action made?

    Though i know how to make video slide and normal call to action at end of video using power point and video spin blaster.

    I just want to know how to have call to action at the bottom as it is in this video.

    Any idea? Thanks.

    You should know since you're the one who created it. This looks like blatant self-promotion to me. The video only has 4 views (1 because of me) and you expect me to believe you just happened to stumble upon it?

    For those of you who are wondering how the CTA was made, it's an image that's placed at the bottom on the video. You can make the image in photoshop using a yellow background, red arrows, and some text.

    Nope, sincerely i am not the owner of the video. Thanks for answering my question
    but unfortunately i dont know how to use photoshop. Though i might get a fiverr seller to do it.

    One more thing, can i use power point to place the CTA at the bottom or is there any software to use for this?

    I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 to create videos, although if you're looking to use PowerPoint, just go to the "Insert" tab and insert an image. Resize it and place it at the bottom of each slide.

    I wouldn't use Fiverr for cheap banners as most of the sellers there manage to ruin everything. If you don't know how to create the images, then download generic arrows from Google Images and create the image in Microsoft Paint. For more specific directions, continue reading:
    1. Open Microsoft Paint
    2. Resize the work area to 728x90 pixels (or at least a rough estimate)
    3. Colour the background yellow with the paint tool.
    4. Use Click the arrow below paste and select "Paste From"
    5. Paste 3 arrow images on the sides and centre of the banner and resize accordingly
    6. Insert your text saying "Click The Link Below To Reduce Cravings and Stop Smoking (or replace this with something more relevant to your video)"
    7. Save the image as a jpeg
    8. Insert the image at the bottom of your video.

    Just add a "smoking" hot blonde next to the word "Cravings" and add a few redesigns to that stop-smoking ad and you've got yourself a CTA that is guaranteed to convert. :cool:
