YouTube cards are interactive “panels” that slide in and out when a video is playing, encouraging further interaction by the viewer. You can add up to 5 cards, which include images, text, or clickable links.
YouTube cards complement videos and can enhance viewer experience. They can be leveraged to gain valuable feedback from your customers, as well as promote call-to-actions.
The different types of YouTube cards currently available are:
Link Cards: Link directly to your website from the video.
Poll Cards: Offer viewers ability to vote on different options.
Channel Cards: Link to a YouTube channel you want to show your viewers.
Fan Funding Cards: Offer viewers opportunity to make a monetary contribution directly on the video page.
Donation Cards: Viewers can donate to a nonprofit organization you support.
Video/Playlist Cards: Link to another YouTube video you think your viewers will be interested in.
