How to add featured channels

While it may sound counter-productive, adding similar, respected, channels to your own under the featured channel list is a good way of increasing your own brand's trustworthiness. By linking to well known members of your competition, you help to form a subconscious link between your channel and theirs. This is a good way of giving your channel context, but also reinforcing the quality of your channel in your viewers minds.
