  1. This is a cool concept from Youtube.Quite refreshing Brian.Thanks for sharing it.

  2. I was thinking of doing something like this…but in a different way. I’m going to start working on it now. – Scott Craighead

  3. Be sure to let us know when you have it up on your channel Scott, I’d be interested to see what you come up with.

  4. It’s definitely worth adding a channel trailer. I’ve found it increasingly difficult to gain subscribers for the past few months and having your best video featured can make a difference. It’s all about the first impressions you give to your (potential) subscribers and you need to make them stick.

  5. Well, you see it’s not for me. It’s for you. – Scott Craighead

  6. I just looked up for the trailer in hotblogtips channel on youtube. I liked the way you kept it short to only 45 seconds and yet got all contributors to tell the kind of videos you do. I believe having a good trailer will give visitors more reason to subscribe.

  7. Thanks Chang, I think the shorter the better for a trailer. We rushed that one and might record a better one soon.
