YouTube News TubeBuddy Affiliate in my video


New User
Subscriber Goal
First post here, so sorry if I'm not making much sense here ;)

So, I've signed up to be a TubeBuddy affiliate, and I want to have a short segment in my YT videos to get people to use my signup link.
BUT, according to the YT rules, ALL affiliates are to be considered sponsoring. So, the question is, when I talk about TubeBuddy in my video, to get viewers to sign up, to I mention TubeBuddy as my sponsor in my videos?
