1. What’s an Outro?
You’ll no doubt introduce all your YouTube videos when you start them, but thinking about how to end them is a little trickier. Wrapping up your video neatly is just as important as getting the intro right, and creating an ‘outro’ (sometimes referred to as an ‘end slate,’ that you use across all your videos, can really help. It generally takes the form of a short slide that includes links and a call to action.
2. How to Create an Outro for YouTube Video
After you’ve given your subscribers some great video content, the last thing you want is for that to fall off a cliff, so creating a structured way to end your video is sensible, and will help with your brand continuity.
A good outro also gives your subscribers, fans, and potential new followers a call to action—like watching another of your videos, or subscribing to your channel via a button.
Some things to consider when making your outro:
- Keep it short: under 10 seconds is ideal
- Simple designs get more engagement—don’t crowd your outro with information
- Keep your branding and imagery consistent
- Make sure your call to action is as relevant to the video as possible, so link to similar videos, relevant products and so on
