Tips on How to Fix Your You Tube Channel That has Changed


If you haven’t visited your YouTube channel in awhile,  you should go and take a look.  It looks different to say the least!

YouTube is forcing you to adopt its new channel design – called You Tube Plus.   That means that if you spent money on a fancy background design that appeared on the top and sides of the channel, it’s gone-forever.

You’re now limited to “Channel Art,” one long horizontal image, 2120 x 1193 pixels, across the top of the page. If you haven’t uploaded it, you’ll see an ugly black and gray box with your small profile picture on the left.

The old You Tube design was nicer, but the new You Tube Plus design has some advantages:
The new image, is  a bit challenging to create , it is scaled so it looks good on all devices–desktop, mobile, tablet and even large screens.

Here’s a video that explains how to create the 2013 YouTube channel art.

If you don’t want to do this yourself, you can get our expert graphic team at Navigator Marketing to design one for you
–You can link from within the image to your website (use keywords) and up to four social media profiles.

–You can create a featured video called a “trailer” that welcomes visitors to your channel and tells them what they’ll find.

I’m creating my trailer this week. I’ll also be creating playlists devoted to topics such as optimizing your linked in profile, maximizing social your media, re-designing your website to convert sales, and free public relations tools, etc. You don’t want to miss any of these!
