How to Upload YouTube Channel Trailer

The YouTube Channel Trailer is one of the very useful branding features that is available to YouTube creators.

If you want to build and grow a professional YouTube channel, then you should definitely look at using the branding features that YouTube offers like channel art and of course the video trailer.

In this blog post, I will cover the basics of the YouTube channel trailer as well as some tips and guidelines on how to create a good video trailer for your channel.

Also, I will show you step-by-step how I created my 2019 YouTube channel trailer in Viddyoze which is a video animation software.

What is a YouTube Channel Trailer?

Well, first let me briefly explain to you what a YouTube channel trailer is. YouTube has provided many branding features to creators like the option to upload channel art, profile picture, including a video trailer.

Basically, it's a video that you can display on your main channel page. This channel trailer is shown to all unsubscribed visitors who land on your channel.

The video trailer should be focused, short and provide the visitor a quick snapshot of the type of content they can expect on your channel. Generally, the channel trailer should be between 30 to 60 seconds in duration.You can do a voice-over if you want to, but I created mine as a video montage.

How to Upload Channel Trailer to YouTube?

In the above video, I walk you through each of the steps involved in uploading your video trailer to your YouTube channel. Also, below I briefly list down the steps involved. To upload a YouTube channel trailer, follow these steps shown below:

  1. Upload video like a regular YouTube video;
  2. Go to the channel you want to upload the trailer;
  3. Click on the Customize button;
  4. Go to the Home tab;
  5. Click on the tab that reads “For New Visitors”;
  6. Click on the pencil (edit) button;
  7. Choose the “Change Trailer” option;
  8. Choose video you want as your channel trailer.

Once you've uploaded your channel video trailer, it will display for all your non-subscribers who visit your main channel page. This is a great way to capture their attention.

How to Create a YouTube Channel Trailer?

This blog post was mainly focused on how to upload your channel trailer. However, if you're also interested in learning how to create professional-looking YouTube channel trailers, you can watch this tutorial below. In this video tutorial, I walk you through the process, step-by-step, on how I created my 2019 YouTube channel trailer using the Viddyoze animation software.

There is so much more you can do with Viddyoze. For example, if you want to create high-quality logo stings (i.e. animated logos) by using your company logo, you can do that too. Additionally, you can incorporate various other video elements when creating your videos.

For example, you can create intros, outros, lower-thirds, cool text animations, call-to-actions and so much more. You can check my Viddyoze Review video below to learn more about the key features and how you can benefit from this video animation software.

If you don't already have Viddyoze, you can get it at a special price. The current price that Viddyoze is being sold at is $127 (one-time). However, if you click the banner below, you can get it at a special one-time price of $97. I'm not sure how long this promotion will be available, so grab it while you can.
