I'm managing a music channel on Youtube and would like to drive traffic to a Spotify-channel that we've created. I've noticed that a few other music channels have small ads the first seconds of the video (like this one: ). A Spotify-logo that expands with a small ad and then disappear again. How do I go about with this?

That is a CTA overlay.  You need to have an Adwords account, and link it to your YouTube channel to set them up. You don't necessarily have to advertise in Adwords to get them to work.  Once you link the accounts, you can actually set them up on the YouTube side of things.  Check out this help guide and scroll down to the "Call-to-action overlay" section. It will give you information on how to link if you have not done so, and how to set them up.
