Using annotations on YouTube is an effective way to further market a product, service or company website throughout a promotional video. In addition to adding multiple annotations and selecting the time frame you want them to display in the video, you can also customize the size of the text. By default, the text size is set to 13 points. To increase the visibility for viewers, enlarge the text size using the YouTube Video Editor.

Log in to your company’s YouTube account.

Click the down arrow next to your YouTube member name and then click “Video Manager.”

Click the “Edit” button associated with the video you want to alter.

Click “Annotations” on the YouTube Video Editor screen.

Click the “Edit existing annotation” drop-down menu and select your preferred annotation.

Click the “Font Size” drop-down menu and select a larger font size, such as 16 or 28. After you select a new font size, the edited annotation appears automatically in the video.

Click the “Publish” button to save the changes.
