If you have a new YouTube channel, even though you can put a descriptive name to it like; MyWonderfulChannel, when you go to share it on social media it becomes youtube dot com/c/ei3uir8uerie. This is totally unreadable and no one will remember it.

This is what you will see when you try to change your channel name with less than 100 subscribers.

When you reach 100 subscribers, you will be eligible to put a custom name on your YouTube channel URL, like .../c/MyWonderfulChannel. That will not only be easy to share but also easy for your audience to remember.

This is what you should see after you reach 100 subscribers. Bear in mind that sometimes it takes a few days for it to change from the above image.

Next, we will briefly look at what goes into a name.

Now to promote my channel more and get the 100 subscribers. My personal channel has them but my brand channel is just starting out. Every WA member though has a spot to add profile URLs including several of your blogs and your social media profiles. Be sure to link in your YouTube so we can follow you when we are on your page.

I've taken one channel out and put the newest one in. Thanks for reminding me, Andy!

Thanks for this Les, all I need to do now is build that following. It's actually quite a good incentive, especially if you're keen to spread your 'brand'.

My pleasure! Anytime I'm doing something for my channel that even seems like it might be a little challenging I try to record it. If you need a push with comments, likes, subs head over to and we'll give you a nudge!
