Description campaign feature
This one feature itself has so much potential that makes the tool worth it. You can add a few lines of text with alink on all of your video and run a campaign. This is where bulk description editing feature of VidIQ outsigns everything. Even better once you decide to end the campaign, VidIQ will remove all the links automatically from your videos, saving you the effort of manual editing. So you can run your campaigns without hassle and manual work.
I recommend this product for any YouTube channel publisher. You always have the choice to start with Free version and gradually scale up to paid version.
