This is a quick screencast that demonstrates how you can go in and and set-up your YouTube Channel’s Custom URL so you can start to market you Channel a bit more professionally. With all the changes to the YouTube interface it can be hard to find some of the core settings. I’m not complaining! I really think they’ve made the youtube administrative interface a lot better for creators, digging down to those core and coordinating your channel setup with your google plus page can be a little confusing to set up when you’re first getting off the ground.

The official YouTube documentation can be find here.
