How to Start a YouTube Channel and Make Money
Everyone can start a YouTube channel – it is as easy as clicking a button. Though not everyone can build and maintain an audience.
Step1: Create your YouTube Channel
To start, click the ‘create channel’ link and start filling out all the necessary details.
Your email address and channel name will be easy, but the header image and profile picture will need more work.
Make your channel look eye-catching. The profile picture and banner you choose will be your audience’s first impression of you.
Step 2: Decide on a strategy
Develop a plan on how you’re going to build your channel before you post that first video.
How your videos will look, how regularly you will upload and what you will include in your video descriptions will all influence the audience you attract.
Unsure where to start planning your strategy? Look at your favourite YouTube channels to get some ideas.
Step 3: Develop a method for creating and uploading videos
Make time to plan, shoot, edit and upload content. Develop a system that allows you to work effectively.
It will take some trial and error, but you will find a process that works for you and your channel.
Step 4: Adapt and revise
The YouTube analytics are forever changing. If your channel does not adapt to these changes, you will get lost in the sea of videos.
Keep an eye on what is popular or happening in the world around you and revise your content accordingly.
