This is a quick video on the new changes youtube has done on the channel customization page. Every time we want to customize the channel, we can do it right from dashboard from the customization tab on the left.
All these features were scattered in different sections, by bringing all under one page, youtube team has made it very beneficent for youtubers like me to customize our channel.
In this first section, we can add the channel trailer for people who haven’t subscribed our channel yet. We can select a video that have been uploaded from our channel as the channel trailer.
Here, selecting a custom video that you created explaining what your channel is about or what kind of videos your channel subscribers will find can get you more subscribers to your channel. It helps if the trailer video is short and precise.
In the next section we can add a featured video that will be visible to all those subscribers who visit your channel again and again.
Here you can let them know what your future video you are planning of uploading or if you are promoting something on your channel, you can announce in this featured video.
Next, here we can add any of this section as a featured section below, Like we can add our popular video uploads or live video streams here.
Or we can also select playlists and add them over here or we can add the channels that we have subscribed to or those channel that we want to feature here.
We can remove the featured section too if we don’t want it anymore.
