Adding Links - Let's get it right
There are a few things to keep in mind while adding links
Don't add too many links. It goes unnoticed. Add links only to the important stuff. Direct your users to the right place.
"If everything is important, then nothing is."
If at all, you need to add multiple links, add a line about where each link will be taking your users
Make sure your disclosures are correct. If it is an affiliate link or you are earning something when your viewers navigate to a 3rd party page then mention it. This builds trust.
Be consistent - add a proper description to every video (including your existing collection). Hyperlinks are a great way to direct your viewers to your social handles.
