How to start your YouTube channel in 2020



Almost everyone have this wish of becoming a famous YouTuber but the fear of speaking into a camera is standing in the way of their dream. You need to kill the fear and face your dream headstrong if you really want to make a name and money out of something that you are passionate about.

If you are wondering how to start a YouTube channel and nail it, then you are on the right page. Creating a YouTube channel is actually very easy. All you need is a camera or your phone and you are good to go.

To create a striving channel, you need to do the following;

1. Figure Out What You Want

Before you start a YouTube channel, you need to brainstorm on what you really want from it. Take time out to figure out your niche. Do you want to be a lifestyle and fitness vlogger, or do you want to do other stuffs like comedy skirts and short videos. Figure out what you want to do and get started.

2. Create your visual presence

I personally feel that your YouTube channel banner and profile picture should reflect your message and brand. This is a perfect spot to outline what people should look out for in your YouTube channel.  Put some work into your personal branding from the beginning. You can make necessarily adjustment from time to time.

3. Come up with a video plan

Having an idea of the kind of video you want your channel to host will save you a lot of stress. So sit down and write a script. This process should start with a brief that should answer the following.

  • What’s the goal of this video?
  • Who is the audience?
  • What’s the topic?
  • What should viewers learn from watching it?
  • What’s the call-to-action, if there is any?

4. Start recording videos

If your aim is to monetize your channel, then you need a plan. You need to really engage with your audience and put out high quality contents. In your videos, use the introduction to say what the video is about and why the viewers should watch it. Then go from one point to another until you reach the conclusion, summarizing the entire video content. Put in the work to always deliver the best to your audience and do not forget to keep sharing your YouTube link.

Now that you’ve understood the basic, let’s get down to how to create your YouTube channel. There are two types of YouTube channel, they are Personal Channel and Business or Creator Channel

1. How to create a personal channel

Follow these instructions to create a channel that only you can manage using your Google Account.

  1. Sign in to YouTube on a computer or using the mobile site.
  2. Try any action that requires a channel, such as uploading a video, posting a comment, or creating a playlist.
  3. If you don’t yet have a channel, you’ll see a prompt to create a channel.
  4. Check the details and confirm to create your new channel

2. How to create a channel with a business or other name

Follow these instructions to create a channel that can have multiple managers or owners.

You can use a Brand Account to create a channel that has a different name but that’s still managed from your Google Account.

  1. Sign in to YouTube on a computer or using the mobile site.
  2. Go to your channel list
  3. Choose to create a new channel or use an existing Brand Account:
    • Create a new channel by clicking Create a new channel.
    • Create a YouTube channel for a Brand Account that you already manage by choosing the Brand Account from the list. If this Brand Account already has a channel, you can’t create a new one—you’ll just be switched over to that channel if you select the Brand Account from the list.
  4. Fill out the details to name your new channel and verify your account. Then, click done. This creates a new Brand Account.
