How to Add End Screen To YouTube Videos and Why You Would Want To

Are you searching for an easy method for adding YouTube end card or End Screens to your video uploads?

If you are not currently using the end screen options on YouTube, then you are most likely missing out on a lot of additional views to your YouTube channel.

Inside this video I am going to show you how to add the end screen to your videos and I am also going to discuss why you MUST add end screen templates to all of your videos.

So why would you want to add a YouTube end screen into your video?

By adding end screens into your video uploads you are giving your channel viewers a chance to watch and engage with more of your content. A goal of all content creators is to keep their audience watching and enjoying their content.

To help you keep your viewers engaged and watching more of your content YouTube have provided a feature where you can add end screens into your videos.

This means that by adding the end screens you are taking advantage of a YouTube feature to keep people engaged and consuming more of the content from your channel.

This in turn means your audience is able to view more videos and content from your channel, they can watch playlists and also be offered an opportunity to subscribe to your channel.

All from the inside of your YouTube video player.

Meaning extra views on your videos

If you don’t add the end screens, then your viewers are going to click away onto other content or miss out on a chance to view more of your videos.

This is lost or missed views that you can take advantage of.

Adding YouTube end screen on video upload:

As you upload a video you have various options available to you.

Inside the video upload options

At stage 1 you have your normal sections for title, description and tags etc.

Enter your details as you wish on this tab and then click ‘next’

This will take you to stage 2 of the upload editor which is the video elements and this is the stage that contains the end screen options.

Here you can either import from another video or select add.

In this video I will choose add

This opens a popup editor where you can choose one of several end screen layouts

This can be a mixture of:

Import from latest video
1 video, 1 subscribe
1 playlist, 1 subscribe
2 videos
1 video, 1 playlist
1 video, 1 playlist, 1 subscribe

Choose one of these layouts and it will then show you options to edit and reposition the elements within your video player.

If you click on the video area you can then also choose additional options
if you click on either the videos or playlists you have additional options.

Choose the options that are best suited to your channel and position the elements to where you want them over your video and then select save.

You will then see a green tick beside your add an end screen option meaning this has been applied

Click on next to go to stage 3 of the upload editor

Set your publishing options and click on publish and whenever you view your video playback you will have an end card directing your viewers to continue watching more of your content.

Adding a YouTube end screen to videos already uploaded into your channel:

Go to YouTube studio and then to your videos.

Select the video where you wish to add your end screen and click on the pencil icon to go into the video editor.
Inside the video editor you have your normal sections for title, description and tags etc.

To the right you will see additional options.
One of these is a box titled end screen.

This can be a mixture of:

Import from latest video
1 video, 1 subscribe

Choose one of these layouts and it will then show you options to edit and reposition the elements within your video player.

Choose the options that are best suited to your channel and position the elements to where you want them over your video and then select save.

I hope you can see the value in using end cards on all of your videos. Also make sure and go back to all previously uploaded videos and get them added into these videos as this then enables your audience to view and enjoy even more of your content on your channel.
