YouTube offers several excellent ways to share your fan funding link. It is very important that you make use of all of them to achieve the best results.

  1. Thank your fans on-screen while placing a graphic with your link next to the thank you.

    The on-screen (graphic/text) version could be:

    My videos made possible by my wonderful fans. Please become a fan today at

    You should also include a verbal (voice) thanks and call to action along the lines of:

    My videos are made possible by the generous support of you, my wonderful fans. If you haven’t already, please become a fan today at or click on the link in the description below.

    Note: If you are producing long form videos add these on-screen versions near the beginning and end of your content.

  2. In the body (also known as the description field) of the video place a similar message to the on-screen example version like this:

    My videos made possible by my wonderful fans. Please become a fan today at

  3. If you are just getting started to be sure your request is noticed, you can add the body/description field version to the first comment on the video and pin that video to the top of the comments.

  4. Go back over your back catalog of videos and add the “body/description field version” to the body of those videos. Also consider adding a pinned comment as described above.

  5. Visit your “About” tab and add the body/description field version to the area “about your channel” and as a distinct link where YouTube allows you to add links.

  6. Note: Please consider keeping/adding monthly support. Ask us for help in putting it back in your item if you removed it and let your fans decide if they wish to support you monthly or just one time.

  7. FYI: We are working on approval for direct links to FanBeach from YouTube end cards and screens. Once they are live be sure to add them to your videos for maximum results!
