I was fortunate to spend Saturday with the staff from Youtube as well as fellow YouTubers, at an event in Manchester.

The day was set up to give advice, tips and support to the ‘YouTube community’, as well as give a heads up on the latest developments in YouTube technology. Although they do the events a few times a year they are quite sought after with people attending from all over the UK.

Wrist with a wristband on that's the YouTube logoThe YouTube Creator Day Wristband!

Most people there are individual YouTubers who want to build the success of their own channel whereas I want to get knowledge and help for my customers.

So, in a nutshell this is what I learned:

A panel of big YouTube stars at the manchester Creators day

The event featured a question and answer panel with a few YouTube ‘stars’.

I don’t make the most of the knowledge we have of YouTube and just take it for granted that
customers know what we know, so in 2017 I’m hoping to focus a lot more on helping customers get the most out of their YouTube channels as the opportunities are huge!
