viewer to do?

Now after showing your viewer rather than telling them what your channel is all about it is time to for some action from your tarketed viewers.This action can be directing your veiwers to click a link on the screen or description box below the video that may lead them to a squeeze page ,sales page or any landing page of your choice.

value, the best Calls to Action is  to encourage the viewer to visit your squeeze page or
subscribe to your channel.
