How to Start a YouTube Channel

Step 1: Create a Google account

If you are using Gmail or any of the Google services, you already have a Google account. But if you don’t, click here to create a personal account or here to create a business account. Get support from here if you’re facing any issues.

Step 2: Activate your YouTube channel

A personal YouTube account comes in-built with your Google account. You just need to activate it by logging in to YouTube and choosing Your Channel from the top-right menu.

Step 3: Select Banner Image and Channel Icon

Once your channel is activated, go to the top of your page and select a background image for your channel. You can choose any image you see fit and it can be changed anytime you want. Just set a high-resolution image to get the best result across devices. The same rule applies for the channel icon.

Step 3: Customize Your Channel

On your channel dashboard, you will find a tab named “Customize channel”. Click it and you will be redirected to a page holding three tabs – Layout, Branding, and Basic info. Use these tabs as per your preference to customize your channel just as you like.

Step 4: Upload Your First Video

Now that your channel is ready, it’s time to upload your first video content. To do that, hit the “Create” button at the top-right corner, select “Upload videos” and follow the instructions.

Step 5: Advertise Your Channel

Videos are worthless if there are no viewers. So don’t forget to let people know about your channel and the awesome videos you’re uploading there. Use other social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook to tell them about your channel.

YouTube has become the “go to” destination for video enthusiasts and businesses alike. Why aren’t you on YouTube? Lets go!
