This HAS to be THE FASTEST way around for creating professionally branded videos on YouTube. The best part? No editing required!

But apart from that, you also need 3 other key ingredients. Keep watching to find out exactly how it works!

    The quickest way to create branded videos on YouTube?

    Gideon I have the intro and a logo but I’ve had it as a watermark for a
    year and it’s never been clickable. Also it doesn’t show up as a watermark
    when I watch my own videos on mobile. Any ideas how I can get my
    annotations and watermark to show up on mobile? Thanks!

  4. Frederic Pierron

    why didn’t made this video with that trick ? It would have been a good demo

  5. Gideon Shalwick

    Excellent stuff +Jane Gardner! Yes it's been fantastic to see YouTube finally adding more useful features for businesses over time…

  6. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey +Charleston Lifestyle Guide! Sorry I probably should have made that clear… by "clickable" I meant that people can directly subscribe to your channel when they click on your watermark logo. As for mobile… they have not quite caught up with that, so as far as I know, annotations don't work on mobile just yet. It's just a matter of time though…

     thanks for the clarification!

  8. Suzie Cooney

    Aloha Gideon. LOVE this.. can this also work for Vimeo or do you have
    another service I can explore? Thanks for your time! Suzie

  9. Jane Gardner

    +Gideon Shalwick keep us up to date, much appreciated, as I seem to have missed the Watermark idea. 

  10. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey +Suzie Cooney! Thank you for all your support! You ROCK! Vimeo does not currently have this available. But what you could do, is use an app like Videolicious on your iPhone where you can automatically add your intro and outro for each video. It has some other cool features too. I'll create a video about it soon!

    +Gideon Shalwick, Great idea. I believe the only problem with using your
    mobile will be with adding custom thumbnails, as creating custom thumbnails
    on mobile is going to be bit of a work.

    Hhahahaha nice joke “Only $47″ u mad ?

  13. Furry Logic Productions

    As the owner of a small production company and as an editor, I can tell you
    for a demonstrable fact that what you call “so called” editing actually IS
    editing. Editing at it’s absolute basic level, but editing none the less.
    Please don’t be so disingenuous as to call it “so called” editing. While
    it is not what people assume editing is and it is the most basic level of
    editing, it is still editing and still requires the (basic/novice) editor
    to make the cuts in the right places.

    In video/film, editing is what you do to make scenes longer, by adding in
    extra camera angles/additional shots of the characters/scenes or cutting
    out the excess footage or “splicing” (as they do with film) scenes together.

    Other than that, you created a fine and very informative video for those
    with no editing skills and no funds or access to actual trained video

  15. Brian Umoh

  18. Gideon Shalwick

  19. Gideon Shalwick

    No probs!

  20. Suzie Cooney

  22. ToGraphic4U

    That's another great tip Gideon, Thanks! But, what do you use to edit on your phone? I'm assuming you have an iPhone, but perhaps I could get something similar. I have an android device.

  23. Keller Coleman

    Gideon u are the man! Bless you.

  24. Gideon Shalwick

    the video was recorded with a canon 60D dslr video, but inside the video I talk about using an iPhone…
