How to Start a Youtube Channel

Starting a YouTube channel can be both fun and profitable. In this article, we will show you how to start a successful YouTube channel that gets subscribers and makes money.

Choose the Right Channel Name

The first step to starting a successful YouTube channel is choosing the right name. Make sure the name you choose is catchy and easy to remember. Try to avoid using complicated or difficult to spell-names.

Upload Videos

Once you have chosen a name, it's time to start uploading videos! To get started, create a new YouTube account and click on the “Create an Account” button on the main YouTube homepage. When you create your account, you will be asked to enter a username and password. Make sure your username is unique and easy to remember, as this will be used when signing up for Google Adsense (more about Adsense later).

Choose a Video Category

Now that you have an account, it's time to choose a video category. There are many different categories available, but some popular ones include cooking, DIY projects, travel tips, and How-To videos. Once you have chosen a category, it's time to find some ideas for videos!

Select Content That Suits Your Channel

Once you have found some inspiration for your first few videos, it's time to start selecting content! Think about what topics interest you and make sure your videos cover those topics well. If you don't know how to do something, don't hesitate to ask a friend or search online for instructions.

Planning Tips For Uploading Videos

When it comes time to upload your video, there are a few planning tips that will help make your channel successful. First, make sure the video quality is good enough so that people can watch it online. Next, think about what format your video should be in – Should it be uploaded in full screen mode or in standard YouTube view? And finally, decide when and where your video should be posted – On the main YouTube page or on one of its subcategories?

Getting Started With Adsense ads on YouTube can help generate revenue for your channel.

Add Videos to Your Channel

Uploading videos to your channel is the first step in building an audience. Once you’ve created a new video and added it to your channel, make sure you:

Include a description of the video: This will help people find and watch it.

Link to the video on YouTube: If someone wants to watch the video on YouTube, they’ll need to know where to look.

Ensure the video is optimized for search engines: All of your videos should be listed under the “Videos” tab on your channel’s home page, and should have keywords in the title and description.

Make sure you upload new videos at least once a week. Doing so will help keep your audience interested and encourage them to subscribe to your channel.

Add Thumbnails and Titles to Your Videos

Adding thumbnails and titles to your videos is another way to help people find and watch them.

Creating Thumbnail Art

To create a thumbnail, click the “Create a Thumbnail” button in the video’s detail page. You’ll be prompted to enter a title for the thumbnail, and then to choose a background image.

Analyze Your Videos for Quality and Engagement

It’s important to take the time to analyze your videos for quality and engagement.

Watch your videos for:

-Engagement: Does your video have a high number of views? Engagement refers to how many people are clicking on the video, leaving a comment, or subscribing to your channel.

-Quality: Are your videos well made? Poorly made videos can damage your credibility and viewership.

-Aesthetics: Are your thumbnails and titles attractive and interesting? viewers will browse through your videos more quickly if they’re visually appealing.

Optimize Your Videos for Search Results

One of the best ways to increase your viewership is to optimize your videos for search engine results.

To optimize your video:

-Upload a high-quality video.

-Use keywords in your titles and description.

-Make sure your video is easy to find on YouTube. Add a good keyword to the title and put it in the tags section.

-Create a YouTube account and add your video to channels that are relevant to what you offer.

Monetize Your Videos with Ads or Subscriptions

Another way to make money from your videos is to monetize them with ads or subscriptions.

Ads: Ads are placed in the middle of your video and can be turned off if you want to avoid them.

Subscriptions: Subscriptions allow viewers to pay a fee for access to your videos without having to leave your channel. This can help you gain more viewers and build a loyal fanbase.


These are a few tips on how to start a successful YouTube channel that gets subscribers and makes money. Follow these steps and you'll be on your way to becoming an online celebrity!
