Getting started

Make a YouTube trailer that’s stunning and effective

If you want people to subscribe to your YouTube channel, all you have to do is ask. But it’s best to ask with a beautiful channel trailer.

Your channel trailer shows people the unique qualities of your channel and gets right to the heart of why viewers should subscribe. A YouTube channel trailer is key to getting viewers, building a stable subscriber base, and monetizing your channel. In short, your channel trailer gives people a way to find and support your work so you can become a YouTube star.

Create a YouTube channel trailer without spending all your revenue

You need a channel trailer to get subscribers. That means you also need a YouTube channel trailer maker that you could afford even if you had zero subscribers (don’t worry, you’ll have more soon).

The basics

Use your trailer to build your channel’s identity

The colors and fonts in your channel trailer set the tone for your YouTube channel, so it’s important that your channel trailer thematically matches the content of your channel. Use the Biteable pre-made or custom color schemes and animated text to create a YouTube channel trailer that matches your content, no matter what it is.

Put your signature on it

Whether you use an intro or outro, your YouTube channel trailer is like your own personal commercial. A familiar, memorable piece that’s consistent with all your content. Upload your own videos or images so viewers can see snippets of your best content in your channel trailer. You can even use Biteable to add your own animated logo if that’s your style.

Add a visual call to action

The most important part of your channel trailer is the part where you ask viewers to subscribe. Your call to action needs to be strong, so make your call to action visually impressive with animated text. Biteable supplies the animation, so all you have to do is write whatever you want!

Pro tips

Make your channel trailer for those who don’t know you (yet!)

You don’t have to tell your life story, but your channel trailer should be tailored to viewers who are just beginning their journey with you. Introduce yourself, your purpose, and what your new viewers can get from subscribing to your channel.

Keep your trailer quick

Your videos are the real stars of your channel, so keep your trailer short. Around 30 seconds is plenty to get your message across. Think of your YouTube channel trailer as a creative elevator pitch. Get in, make your pitch as fast as you can, and get out.

Show them what you’ve got

Use footage from your videos to show people what they’ll see if they subscribe. It wouldn’t be a trailer without some teaser shots, right? Giving people a quick but delicious taste of what they’ll get as a subscriber is a great way to entice them to subscribe.
