Do you have your own channel on YouTube, or aspire to make the existing one more successful? Starting June 3, YouTube will be offering its Maximize Your Channel course to users for free via its YouTube Creator Academy.
The course will take users through different parts of the new YouTube One Channel, and explain how these can help them get in more subscribers and viewers to their channel. Users will also get a chance to add refreshing changes to their own channel, even as they learn. They will also learn how to curate and organise content, so their subscribers can find what they're looking for and keep coming back for more. Importantly, considering the multiplicity of devices that One Channel works on, users will be taught how to make their channel look good on all screens – TVs, laptops, tablets, mobile, gaming consoles.
The course, starting June 3, will comprise a few hours over a period of two weeks and is open to the service's global audience. Registrations are currently underway, and will go on till the course closes on June 16 at 8pm EDT. Interestingly, YouTube One Channel is set for a uniform launch across all channels on June 5. Earlier this month when the announcement was made, Allison Bransfield, Product Specialist at YouTube, said that those who do not opt for it by then (June 5) would be automatically and permanently ushered into the new design.
YouTube One Channel that was launched in March this year, lets channel creators customise how videos and playlists are organised to best fit their channel strategies. The One Channel also lets you create a trailer for your channel. This trailer will play for any visitor who isn't a subscriber yet. Users can consider it as an opportunity to get a visitor hooked to their channel, and eventually turn them into subscribers. YouTube suggests users should “treat this trailer as if it were an ad.”
