Boost Your Youtube Subscribers with a Custom Sub Link

Boost Your Youtube Subscribers with a Custom Sub Link

The only way to get more subscribers to your Youtube channel is to get more people to click that red button, right? Well, here is a tip to help your viewers do more clicking and less browsing-without-clicking. You can create a subscription link that will take a Youtube user to your Youtube page with an overlay that has your Youtube subscribe confirmation button. So, essentially, it cuts the middle-man out and ensures that your user clicks the red button rather than just going to your page, getting distracted and not clicking the red button. The old way of formulating this special url is using the Youtube Subscription Center url. That url looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=USERNAMEHERE This form will give you a “Invalid Request” or “User not found” error. This won’t work now as Youtube no longer has a “Subscription Center”. Now you use this format: https://www.youtube.com/channel/USERNAMEHERE?sub_confirmation=1 Just put your username in place of USERNAMEHERE. To find your exact username, go to your Youtube “My Channel” page. Look at the web address at the top of the browser. Your username is either a text string representing a user such as “campietralunga” OR a string of letters and numbers representing a channel such as “UC41WI1DzyWt74xE0hy1uBdw”. Copy and paste that into your subscription url. Now you can easily pump up your subscriber number!...

Not Your Average (Free!) High Resolution Photos

Not Your Average (Free!) High Resolution Photos

I’ve discovered a super-cool resource for graphics and web design! Often I have to develop graphics for a client and don’t want to use the generic stock images at a service such as iStockphoto. And, also often, my client just can’t fit paying for more resources into her budget. Times like these call for thinking outside of the box and exploring the web for alternatives like Unsplash. Unsplash has free-to-use, incredible, copyright-free photos taken by super-talented photographers from around the world. The Unsplash License: All photos published on Unsplash are licensed under Creative Commons Zero which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes, without asking permission from or providing attribution to the photographer or Unsplash. Ahhh… that’s the kind of license I love! Some of my recent favorites… The photo detail page gives you all the information about who took the photo, where and how the photo was taken. They are all high-resolution, crystal clear and large format – just wonderful. These are perfect for creating print brochures, posters, responsive website backgrounds, banner ads, and anything else you can think of! Check out...
