When you sign up for Youtube, most likely in sync with a Gmail account, you get a Youtube Channel created by default for you. FIrst thing that people don’t realize is that you have the ability to create new Youtube channels either personal youtube channels or business named channels.
What many people also don’t realize is that you can customize the link to your newly created channel. By default, youtube channel links look like: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNimhyukHP5tdka3a9zi9Nw. This is not at all desirebale as it doesnt look good, it is very long and it doesn’t have any identity. You can customize your YouTube Channel link or URL.
- Make sure you’re signed into YouTube, and go to your Advanced Account Settings.
- Under Channel Settings, click Create custom URL.
- You’ll then be able to choose the URL you want. Note that you can’t choose a URL that someone’s already chosen. Once you’ve chosen your custom URL, it will appear like this: http://www.youtube.com/user/CUSTOMERS
- Once your channel has a custom URL, it can’t be changed. Choose carefully!
