I have just created a video for Youtube, in order to promote my an Amazon affiliate product. I am going to place my affiliate links down in the description box of the video to direct potential customers to my site if they want to buy the product.

But I don't know whether to place the link first in the description box, or last, or after the explanation of the product and all of its features. Which would be best ideas here?

Why not do both? I normally place the link at the very beginning as the description by default only shows an excerpt... You want to make it as easy as possible for people to see the link and click on it... Placing it also towards the end as a reminder is also okay...

Same here...

I usually use a shortener url and place it in the description box. Also, I create a catchy thumbnail that tells my viewers to click my link in the description box.

I guess you should post your links after writing a one line description about your video. If you want to add more content you can add it below your links.

I do both and also use a shortener url in the description box and also highlight a keyword and add a link. I agree its always better too with a catchy thumbnail advising them to click on the link otherwise some people leave the video without clicking on anything.
