YouTube Tests New Product Tags for Shorts

Reporting from Social Media Today, YouTube Short released a product tag feature to monetize YouTube Short.

This new feature is a useful new experiment for content creators.

On YouTube short content creators can mark or tag products that are in YouTube short clips to buy.

Previously, YouTube had been testing this new feature on selected content creators in the United States.

Then viewers of YouTube Shorts in the United States, Brazil, Canada and Australia can see the tags embedded in YouTube Short clips.

Viewers who see the tag can immediately click on the tag and shop directly in the destination application. Read also 10 Best YouTube Shorts Video Editor Apps [PC, iOS, Android]

This feature was created to get around advertisements in the middle of videos which are relatively more difficult to place on short videos such as YouTube Shorts.

Previously, YouTube had announced that it would display ads between YouTube short videos that appeared.

The revenue from the advertising results on the YouTube Short will be shared with the content creator with a percentage based on the performance of the YouTube Short. Read also Secret How To Get More Views on YouTube Shorts

But it seems that this is less effective, the tagging feature in YouTube Short videos is actually considered more profitable.

Product tagging on YouTube Short videos is more profitable because the allocation of funds can be directly received by the content creator.

This feature is a new way for content creators to increase their chances of receiving cash.

Meanwhile, the largest short video platform, TikTok, has previously used the tagging feature as YouTube did.

Whether this YouTube tag will be similar to the TikTok tag, what is clear is that this is an enhanced monetization effort by YouTube.

Another effort that YouTube is making is that YouTube will also allow Shorts creators to include more than 15 seconds of video length.

This effort will certainly allow creators to use more music and will help increase the promotion of music, as well as spark new creative trends.
