How to YouTube? - Golden rules and our new Classical:NEXT channel
How to set up a channel that is exciting but does not require a lot of effort? How often should one post something on YouTube? Which content is interesting to others? What is a good background picture? How many "playlists" (i.e. categories) should I provide?
Making your own YouTube channel is actually simple to do! Take a look at our new YouTube channel. We tried to put into effect some golden rules of YouTube, which we compiled and wrote down for you in case you want to set up or redesign your own channel. Enjoy!
