How to add your company YouTube channel

A quick guide to connecting & verifying your company's YouTube.

Make sure you have admin access to your company's channel before you start

 

Do I need a YouTube channel?

YouTube is where we host all of your uploaded videos, both DRAFT and PUBLISHED. 

Without your own YouTube channel you will not be able to publish your videos.

If you do not connect your company's YouTube channel, your videos will be hosted on the VideoMyJob sample channel.

Publishing to the VideoMyJob sample channel channel means your videos cannot leverage your brand's existing digital footprint or influence your company's search engine rankings.

How to connect your YouTube channel

  1. Login to your VideoMyJob web dashboard
  2. Select 'Team Settings' from the menu on the left
  3. Select the 'Team Details' tab up the top
  4. Scroll down and click 'Connect YouTube'
  5. This will prompt you to 'Sign In' to your google account 
  6. Select the YouTube Channel you want to connect
  7. Click 'Allow' on the requested access permissions

How to Verify your YouTube channel

This is a step required by YouTube to enable features such as custom thumbnails that are required to work with VideoMyJob. If your channel has not been verified with YouTube then you'll see this warning message on VideoMyJob advising you  to verify your channel:
