If you want to be successful on YouTube, you need to stand out from the crowd.
Unlike a website, there are very few customization options for your YouTube page.
And, as most people will find your videos via search – rather than heading directly to your profile – you’ve really only got your thumbnails and subscribe options to sell yourself.
Those who want to make their YouTube page more personalized can choose a number of different options.
One of which is adding a colored subscribe button to your videos.
If you’ve ever noticed your favorite YouTubers using a different colored subscribe button on their videos, but have never been sure how to do the same for yours, this guide is for you.
The below steps will show you how to add pink subscribe buttons to your YouTube videos.
Chances are, you can also use the same steps to get different colors too to suit your brand’s theme.
How to Add Pink Subscribe Button to YouTube Videos
Read on to find out how you can add pink subscribe buttons to your YouTube Videos.
This is perfect for any girly channel about fashion, lifestyle, cosplay, or interior style.
The same steps can be followed to add any color.
Step 1: Google Images
The first step to adding a pink subscribe button to your YouTube videos is to find a button you like the style of.
Head to Google Images and search for the ‘pink subscribe button’ and save your favorite design.
Alternatively, if you’re a graphic design whizz and want your subscribe button to be totally unique, you could have a go at creating your own via Adobe Photoshop, Canva or Spark.
Step 2: Customize Channel
Log into your YouTube channel.
Then, head to the ‘Customize Channel’ button or the YouTube Creator Studio.
Step 3: Select the Branding Tab
At the top of the page, there will be three tabs.
One of which is named ‘Branding’.
Select this option.
Step 4: Add a Watermark
You’ll then have the option to add a watermark.
You can use this option to either upload a subscribe button to your videos or brand your videos with your company logo.
This may be something to consider if you’re looking to create content for a product or service-based business.
That way, your content cannot be stolen.
Step 5: Upload Your Subscribe Image
Upload your new subscribe image.
The recommended size is 150×150 pixels.
You can edit the size of your image online or in photo editing software.
YouTube accepts all major image formats (JPEG, BMP, PNG) as well as GIFs if you want to make your button animated.
Step 6: Adjust Watermark Settings
You can then select when you want your new button to be visible on your videos, and for how long.
If you start your videos with a small introduction and ask viewers to subscribe, you may want to choose a custom time for the button to appear.
Alternatively, you can set it to appear at the very start, or end of your videos.
You can also choose how long to have the button visible so that it doesn’t take away from your video or obstruct certain details.
Once you’ve adjusted the settings of your new button, click Save.
Now prospective subscribers will be able to subscribe to your channel no matter how they stumble upon your video.
For some reason, the new watermark may take a few days to appear.
So make sure to test your new button’s visibility a few days later by checking if it appears on past videos, as well as any new uploads.
How to Add Pink Subscribe Button to YouTube Shorts
With TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram stepping into the video content realm, YouTube has now added its own vertical video feature: YouTube Shorts.
Like videos viewed on other platforms, YouTube Shorts are vertical videos that are much shorter than your standard vlog.
Creators can now create 0-60 second snippets to entice new viewers to their channel.
These smaller videos can be uploaded to your channel video the YouTube Shorts app, or by tagging ‘#shorts’ onto your standard upload.
At the bottom of each Shorts video, there will automatically be a Subscribe button if a viewer isn’t already a follower of your channel.
Unfortunately, at the moment there isn’t the option to add subscribe buttons in videos for YouTube Shorts.
However, you don’t need to worry too much, as everyone who isn’t subscribed to your channel will automatically be shown the button just underneath.
How to Add Animated Pink Subscribe Button to YouTube Videos
If you want to make your YouTube videos look even fancier, you might want to use an animated subscribe button within the video.
This is helpful for catching the attention of your viewer and directing them to the subscribe button.
Your animation could be anything you want.
Perhaps you want to have a little cursor click the button, or just want your button to sparkle.
Whatever you’re looking to have your button do, here’s how to get yourself an animated pink subscribe button for your videos.
Step 1: Find or Create a GIF
If you’re not sure what you’d like your animated button to do, there is plenty of inspiration on Google or GIF-specific websites like Giphy.
There are also a number of sites where you’ll be able to create your own animation that can then be used on your YouTube channel.
Once you’ve found an animated pink subscribe button, save this to your desktop.
Note: As mentioned above, YouTube only accepts image formats and GIFs.
Therefore, if you’re creating your own animation, make sure to save the file in GIF form, rather than MP4 or MOV.
Step 2: Customize Channel
When you’ve found and saved your pink animated subscribe button, you can then follow the steps from above.
Head to your YouTube Channel and select Customize Channel.
Step 3: Add a Watermark
Again, in the branding tab, you’ll see the option to ‘Add a Watermark’.
Step 4: Upload Your GIF
Select your newly created or downloaded gif from your desktop and upload it.
Within a few days, you should notice that your new animated watermark / subscribe button is visible on your videos.
You can adjust when the button appears and for how long on your videos.
How to Create Pink Subscribe Button for YouTube
As mentioned above, you have the option to find a pre-made subscribe button online, or you can make your own.
If you want to make your own, you’ll need an image creation tool like Adobe Photoshop.
There are plenty of free, online alternatives such as Adobe Spark, Canva, or Pixlr.
Once you’ve chosen your program, follow these steps:
Step 1: Set the Canvas Size
Youtube likes watermarks to be no larger than 150 x 150 pixels.
If you want to create a square subscribe button, it’s best to use these measurements.
Alternatively, you can create a different shaped button, so long as the size doesn’t go over 150 pixels.
Setting the canvas size before you get started will help you see exactly how the button will look on your video.
Step 2: Choose Your Background Colour
If you’re wanting a simple button, you might want to just fill in the background in a pink shade that you like.
Alternatively, use the shape tool to create your button, then fill this in with pink.
Step 3: Add Your Text
You’ll likely want your button to say ‘Subscribe’, so have a play with the text tools and find a font and size that you like.
Step 4: Save
Once you’ve chosen the shape, color, font, and size of your button, you can then save the finished piece.
Make sure to save your button at the correct size in JPEG, PNG, or BMP form.
If your button isn’t a square, but you have kept your canvas size at 150 x 150 pixels, save it as PNG.
That way, when your button is uploaded, the background will be transparent.
