Creating a personal YouTube channel is a lucrative idea that requires time and talent
To own a YouTube channel is one thing, to earn money from the channel is another thing. But first, I will be teaching you a few steps that you can follow to opening a channel successfully. After reading this article, you would have learnt steps on how you can create your own personal channel already.
1. Sign in to YouTube and click on the user icon at the top right of the screen.
2. Click on the gear icon to get to your account’s YouTube Settings.
3. Click on Create a new channel.
4. Then choose “Use a business or other name”
5. Add your Brand name and click create.
After creating your channel, there are a few things that you may want to do also, to make your channel standard for viewers to access.
- Fill in the about section; Next, you’ll want to fill out your profile and channel description; this is the first option you see after you have created a channel. Here, you should describe your brand and what viewers can expect to see on your channel.
- Channel your art; When you go to a YouTube channel, you’ll immediately be greeted with a large banner displaying the channel name. This is your cover photo and is the prime real estate for introducing your brand.
- know your content type; Since you’re starting a YouTube channel for your own business, you should have more than enough source material to work with, and you can approach your video content in more than one way.
- Lights, camera, trailer are also important. Like your channel art, you’ll also want to create your channel trailer. Channel trailers are usually short and sweet and are a good introduction for new visitors.
- Upload your first (official) video; At this point, you’ve probably done a fair amount of research about your first video, and if you already have your channel trailer under your belt, you have a bit of practice as well! Now it’s time to take and say “action.” Once you are done editing, then you are good to upload.
- Optimize for search; when uploading a video, just like your SEO options on websites, you’ll be asked to fill in a title, description, and tags. These are essential components to have your video easily discoverable in YouTube search, so don’t skimp on them.
- Stay consistent and integrate your contents; Don’t expect success if you plan to create a YouTube channel, upload one video and then neglect it completely. Creating a successful YouTube channel takes time and effort, and viewers expect consistency from the channels that they subscribe to. After your first video, be sure to plan the next few videos ahead of time.
