Adding a subscription button on your page may look redundant. If the video was embedded on a website, it is necessary to add a subscribe button.
YouTube Subscribe Button
Two things define YouTube subscribe buttons.
- We have a YouTube channel subscribe button which is embedded on a website displaying subscriber count.
- We also have YouTube subscribe PNG, which displays a company’s logo watermark in the corner of a video. Clicking on it allows users to subscribe to the brand’s YouTube channel.
How to Add a YouTube Channel Subscribe Button on Websites
Manually Adding YouTube Subscribe Button Code
- Visiting the YouTube subscribe button page is the first thing you need to do. On this page, you will be shown how to fill the Configure a Button page form.
The form looks like this and has four columns that need to be filled. Don’t fill in your channel name. This section requires your channel ID or your YouTube username.
To get your channel ID, head over to the YouTube account settings and retrieve the channel ID feature. It is found on the left panel. This is clearly shown in the above image.
Type your ID in this section once you’ve retrieved it
- Choose your desired button layout. YouTube has several sections for the embedded watermark as seen in the image below:
- Once you are through with that, it’s time to upload your watermark. The transparent background color will look like the screenshot below:
Here is an example:
- When you are done choosing your layout and subscriber button, a code will be generated by Google.
As an example, we’ll use a preview of NamanModiDigital’s YouTube Subscribe button. You will be directed to the NamanModiDigital Channel when you click on this subscription icon made for them by Google.
- From the screenshot below, you can see a set of code at the bottom. The entire code needs to be copied.
- Next, go to your website and with a code snippet to embed your video. We will use the .com Dashboard as an example. Once you’ve entered the dashboard, click on Appearances then Widgets. Look for available widgets and click on Custom HTML to drag-and-drop it to your widget section. After that, paste the code you had retrieved previously in the content area. In the title section, you can choose to write “Subscribe to My Channel.” Click on Save to apply changes, once you are done.
Method 2: Using a Plugin to Add a YouTube Subscribe Button
A plugin also offers a great way to add a YouTube-like button on your website. This is also an embeddable YouTube subscribe button. This is the easiest method if you are using a website.
To start with, head over to the plugins and in the search section, type Easy Subscribe Button Widget. Choose what you feel looks good, and once you are satisfied, install and activate it on your website.
We are going to pick and install the YouTube Subscribe plugin as an example. The reason we like this plugin is for its ease of use and also widget-friendly. You can configure it and use it to add a YouTube subscribe button, once you are through installing and activating it in the widget area. To confirm whether you have done the correct thing, you’ll see the “YouTube Subs” widget added, under Widgets. In the sidebar, add the same and enter your channel ID just like we’ve done on the above screenshot.
This is how your subscribe button will look like once you are done adding it:
Don’t forget to click on the Save button to apply changes once you are done. Under every YouTube video, this plugin will always display the YouTube-like button on your site.
Adding a Subscribe Button on YouTube Videos
- From the YouTube Studio dashboard, open the settings panel
- Select Channel and go to the Branding Tab
- As a video watermark, add a subscribe picture in a YouTube subscribe button PNG or GIF format
It is important to note that you can’t use a regular JPG as a YouTube watermark size since watermarks use RGBA. To make parts of the subscribe button transparent, you need that extra letter A (the alpha channel). Doing this will lead to an irregular shaped subscribe PNG. This is perfect for logos that would instead be seen inside a white box, making it weird.
You can use this free YouTube subscribe button PNG on your YouTube videos:
Facebook Like Button
On Facebook, you subscribe to future posts when you like a page. And it has to be a page, not a single post to make it work. Previously, Facebook pages were called fan pages since they gathered fans instead of friends. This is different from profiles that only gather friends. Just like the subscribe button on YouTube, the Like button works the same way. Clicking on the Like button will allow you to receive new content published on that particular Facebook page.

However, you don’t need to like a page to follow it.
Inserting a Facebook LIKE Button to Your Website
A Facebook Like button can be added to almost any content you have online. The Like button is customized according to the needs of the user.
Here is the basic view of the eBuilderz’s Facebook page like button:
For example, you can make the button larger or show profile photos to visitors who liked your page.
<div class=”fb-like zoom”
Head over to the Like Button Configurator if you want to configure your like button on Facebook for Developers website.
PRO-TIP: The Like button is enlarged using the scale() function with CSS. For instance, if you want to make it 4x bigger, just add a transform: scale(4). This is not advisable with the standard layout as this would pixelate your friends’ profile pictures will pixelate.
Like Us on Facebook-Button
Others prefer redirecting visitors to their page first, instead of adding a simple working button. This is also a working and easy option. You can use a fake subscriber PNG button with a custom design rather than an embedded code snippet. You can use many variants in your call-to-action button. The commonly used ones are:
- Follow us on Facebook
- Find us on Facebook
- Like us on Facebook
- Join us on Facebook
- Visit us on Facebook

Twitter Follow Button for Website

- Look for Embedded Tweet, Embedded Timeline and Twitter Buttons options by scrolling down.
- Select your desired Twitter Buttons

Just like Facebook, there is also an alternative option for redirecting your visitors to your Twitter page. This site was done using a PNG button, and you can say something like Find us on Twitter. Here are other free Twitter buttons, just for you:
Newsletter Subscribe Button
All major social media platforms will allow subscribers and followers to receive new content. This is as soon as it is posted. On the other hand, updating people about new content using your website is a bit tricky—no cause for alarm. There is a way to get through to them, and that’s using newsletter subscriptions.
Here, you can use three basic tools to get subscribers:
Subscribe buttons are used to trigger all of them. Let’s look at each one of them.
Subscribe Button and Pop-up
Many people don’t like pop-up ads because they are annoying. Pop-up widgets, on the other hand, aren’t so bad since they don’t appear anywhere.
Subscribe Button and Modal
If you think a pop-up ad is annoying, wait till you come across a modal window! It is something else. When it appears, it freezes the entire website page while dimming it. A visitor must take action for the page to go back to normal. These actions include filling out forms, clicking buttons, or close the modal window.
Subscribe Button and Chatbot
You should not confuse Subscription chatbots with subscriber bots. A subscriber does not refer to a fake subscriber. It is popularly used by some YouTube and Instagram subscribers to increase their views. If you want to get feedback from your visitors and increase subscribers use chatbots. I will give you two scenarios to explain why. First is an office clerk throwing a registration form for you to fill out. You will find this process tiring and boring.
The second one is when you enter a hotel and find a friendly lady who requests your details. Which on scenario would you prefer? The lady, of course! Well, that’s exactly how chatbots operate. Chatbot platforms like Tidio can help you create a chatbot. This is what we are using on my website aswel. They turn tedious, boring tasks into fun and interesting conversations. You can use chatbots to send messages through your website live chat box or Facebook Messenger. WordPress users can add a WordPress live chat plugin with a few clicks. You can also get a free YouTube subscribe bot.
