How to make a trailer for the YouTube channel?

A YouTube channel trailer is very similar to a movie trailer, it's for people who are subscribed and for those who don't, watch a short video to show what your channel is about. This is shown on the channel's homepage, so it's best to follow these little steps so that you have a good trailer.

The first thing is that it is a short video, it can last from 1 and 3 minutes a depending on what you want to show. Since we want to call more people, a short but well summarized video on the topic of our channel is best.



Secondly, if you are monetizing your videos, this is better than this ad-free, in order to attract more attention and focus the viewer when watching your trailer. For this reason, make sure that the video does not contain any third party content.

Third, we need to know that there will be many people who do not yet know our content, so we need to get their attention with the first 10 seconds of the trailer, so it's best to tell them what our channel is about and show small segments of our best videos.

Finally, make sure that most of the people who see your trailer subscribe, for that we have to put a word subscribe at the end of the video or we can say it multiple times in the trailer but without being pushy. Furthermore, the adding a button somewhere on the screen would help us.
