YouTube Channel Redesign Part 1
New YouTube Design
New Channel Design
If you have a YouTube channel then you may have noticed that there is a new YouTube Channel redesign that has happened in the past couple of weeks.
The new look and feel makes it easier to find and watch the content you have to offer, or at least that is its intended goal.
It offers you the channel creator a better way to organize and showcase your work and give your viewers the information they are looking for.
In YouTube’s own words the benefits are the following:
- A more streamlined and consistent design
- An easier way to find and view videos
- New, more flexible layouts for featured content, and
- A way to keep your audience engaged even when you don’t have new uploads
There are some things that don’t change. Again, according to Youtube, here is the list of things that stay the same:
“The following will remain intact and will not be altered as part of the Channels migration:
- Account Settings
- About this user
- Redirect URLs
- Vanity URLs
- Tracking Pixels
- Google Analytics Account ID number
- Avatars, and
- Backgrounds images
All of these elements can be updated in the new design.”
So what does this all mean to the channel creator.
I think it means a better way to showcase your videos and organize them so that your best material gets highlighted.
The header is clean and gives a quick view of the channel’s view count.
Four Template Formats
And the format is offered in one of four templates each w ith its own way to present your channel content and the content of other channels you think your viewers would enjoy looking up.
The video above is an overview of the new channel design and what it has to offer you. So take a look and see for yourself.
And if for any reason you are not satisfied, there is the option of going back to the older design if you so choose.
So take a look, give it a try, check out what some of the leaders on YouTube are doing and go for it.
Stay with it, stay well and talk soon.
