If you produce video shorts, you want a reliable linking strategy to guide your audience to click on your products and services. This article is a quick YouTube short linking guide.

YouTube is rolling out several changes on the platform. YouTube is making it more user-friendly for audiences making it more difficult for Content Creators.

One such change was removing clickable links in video short descriptions and comments, You can still add the link, it just won't be clickable.

Linking YouTube Shorts with Related Videos on YouTube

.How do we overcome that?

Within YouTube Studio, when uploading video shorts you can now add a related video linking to long-form content on your channel. You are still able to add clickable links to long-form content.

Yesterday I produced two videos entitled “Best Affiliate Marketing Program To Promote in 2024” and “Best Network Marketing Business to Join in 2024.”

Below you can watch both videos.

 

The content includes stock B roll footage to increase production values and the content is evergreen, which means it will have a long shelf life. The videos also direct people to relevant offers such as the Masterclass, HBA and LiveGood.

With video shorts linked to the relevant long-form video, all that's needed is to change the title from 2024 to 2025 to keep it current.

 

Here's The Simple Process

  1. Produce good quality evergreen content and link to your relevant products and services
  2. Produce video shorts and link to your long-form content
  3. Change the year if you added it to keep things current.

Things change quickly online and it's our responsibility as Online Business Owners, Affiliate Marketers and Network Marketers to adapt to those changes.
