3 great reasons to upgrade to a new style YouTube channel

1. You can now add a banner / cover image at the top of your channel.
This is a great way to show off your brand. Here’s a good example from Marketing Buzz Tv.

2. You can set a video to play as a trailer for non subscribed visitors.
See an example on my channel >

3. You can categorise your videos into playlists and popular uploads
The layout is bigger and bolder than before, and it provides you with full customisation over how your visitors view your content. “Here’s one I made earlier” on East Glos Tv >
