The new One Channel YouTube Layout is here, but is it easy to set up?Â Answerâ¦YES! As I say in the video below, “It’s easy as pie“. And since Mitch Mitchell says pie isn’t easy (he obviously doesn’t live with a chef), I should have said “It’s easy as eating pie“.
Funny thing, early on March 7, 2013 I wrote the post ‘YouTube Tag Changes For OneChannel‘Â and was excited because it meant things were getting set up for the layout change over. I spent Â½ my day bummed out because I couldn’t get the new layout and later that eveningâ¦the new layout was available for everyone. *Happy DanceÂ *
Anyway, in this Hot Blog Tips Hangouts on Air, I run through a little about what you will find when you click the link and get the new layout.Â I also tell you where to find the link in your YouTube Dashboard to upgrade to the One Channel layout.
To me, the Channel Art and the Trailer were the hardest parts. That is only because you may need some creativity and that is something I lack.
In the video I cover how awesome the “Sections” or shelves are. They make it easy to display the videos you want to get attention on your channel page. If you wonder what your choices areâ¦I list them in the video.
I also talk about the links your channel can now display and how they are limited to 4, but as we know, to many choices of what to clickâ¦usually leads to NO CLICK!
I also give a few more tips for making your Channel Trailer. We did a previous HoA ‘Tips for Making YouTube Channel Trailers and then after the upgrade, I figured out a few more things I wanted to add, so I talked about them in the video below.
For those of you that have already upgraded, what is your favorite part?
For any of you that have not went to get the new layout, what is holding you back?
