    I'm curious what credentials you guys use to promote your channel ID?

    For instance, my instagram handle is @bizarredesignlab (simple) But my Channel ID is UC9CB0pPimfQc-ITK-ARukGQ

    Let's say I want to make a business card to promote my channel. Do I say"go to YouTube and search Michael Masters"?

    You have to have 100 subs (looks like you're at 99! So close!) and your account must be 30 days old. After that (apparently) you can choose your own username (maybe that matches your IG name)

    I appreciate that very much! I just hit 102, so I think I'm good to get that custom URL! Thanks again!

    Congratulations on your custom url! I hated having numbers as my url and I was so thrilled when I was able to customize it because I thought the numbers didn’t look to professional and it’s easier to remember as well!

    Thank you Candice! It almost seems silly, since other platforms are very easy to point to, like using Facebook links, Instagram and Twitter handles. It's been much more difficult for me to point people to my channel. So, the URL helps. It's not as cool as a play button, but a win, nonetheless! lol

    Yeah it was difficult for me as well when I wasn’t able to a custome url and then I had to keep copying and pasting to let people know how to get to my channel. After I hit 100 subscribers some things did get easier.

    Just giving my full name in the search bar points ţo the channel. Previously i wanted to tag or put in description just my mobile noumber but never found the time to try this. :) Short funny fact, there is also a person with same name with me so i have sometimes to clarify, "i am the bold boring guy not the crazy moto rider!" hahaha! Anyway, it is rare to give channel,s link. Either ask for email and send direct short links, either share private videos through share invitation. No business cards for me :p
