What exactly is an outro?
An outro is the concluding audiovisuals at the end of your content. A consistent outro brings familiarity to your content. In your Youtube outro, add a Call-to-Action (CTA) to your other videos boosts your viewership.
Here’s a detailed explanation from Youtube but we summarized the really important points to note:
1. Your video has to be at least 25 seconds long to have an end screen.
2. End screens can be added to the last 5 to 20 seconds of a video
3. You can add 4 different types of CTA to your end screen, they are:
- Video or playlist: Feature your channel’s videos or playlist.
- Subscribe: Encourage subscription. (a must to have!)
- Channel: Promote another channel.
- Approved website: Link to a external site.
Using a Youtube Outro is an absolute must in your videos. Unlike the rolling credits in the cinema, the conclusion of your video content as an outro can include call-to-action(CTA) that links to your other videos. The free option to advertise your content is too great to pass on. Easy as it sounds, we still see plenty of videos who don’t take advantage of this.
