your channel so you can edit that by clicking on the pencil icon and edit the description. For business inquiries, you can put in your
email address and select your country, United States. On the links, custom links, you can add up
to five links. First one I added was my landing page, “21
ways to get free traffic”. Then you just grab the link to your Facebook
page. Here it is at the top you just copy that,
in the mac, it’s command C, paste it in the box. The third link is a tip jar which is my PayPal
donate link. You can watch my video of how I created that

got my business inquiries email, country, and I’ve got my links. If you want to edit any of these links, you
just click on the pencil icon and then you can edit any of these links. If you go to your channel home page you’ll
find that all these links don’t appear on the channel art. I’ve just got my landing page, Google Plus
page, and Facebook page. If you want to edit any of those you just
hover pencil icon again. Click edit links and then you can choose maybe
just a couple that you want to put on the home page. Another place that you might want to add your
social media links is in the description of your videos. So if you click on videos and click on one
of your videos, click on the info and settings. Scroll down to the bottom of your description
and enter your social media links at the bottom. The title could be, “connect with me on
social media.” Click “save changes.” What if you want to add social media links
automatically to each video you upload? You can do this by going into your default
settings, click on your profile icon, creative studio, upload defaults. In your description box place your social
media links, click “save”. Now your social media links will appear in
the description for each new video you upload. What if you don’t see “edit links” when
you hover over your channel art? To activate this, just click on your cog icon
