Are you interested in
being a YouTube creator?

Maybe you wanna use
your voice to spread a message

or you wanna teach
people how to do something.

Maybe you love gaming, beauty, or fitness.

Or you could just wanna show
people your life and build a community.

Whatever your passion is

creating on YouTube allows you
to connect with viewers around the world.

In this video, we’ll show you
what you need to know to start

and grow a channel
as a creator on YouTube.

First, you’ll need to start a channel.

To do this here are the
steps you’ll need to take:

First, sign in to YouTube
using a Google Account.

Then, try any action
that requires a channel

such as uploading a video,
posting a comment, or creating a playlist.

If you don’t yet have a channel,
you’ll see a prompt to create a channel.

If you already have a channel
and wanna create another new one

click on your channel icon.

Then go to «Settings»
and click «Create a new channel.»

When it comes to picking your
channel name, there’s no exact science.

But try picking a name
that’s easy to remember

and captures what
you wanna be known for.

Once your channel is created,
you have the option to customize it

with your own personal branding.

First, you can add a profile picture.

This is the image that shows
on your channel homepage

on your video watch pages,
and next to all your comments.

So, you want people to see it
and instantly recognize your channel.

You can also add a channel banner.

Your banner is the space
at the top of your channel.

Here you can show
what your channel is about

and why viewers
should subscribe to you.

You can put visuals
or short snippets of text

that highlight what
type of content you create.

And if you plan on uploading regularly

you can also include
your upload schedule here.

A channel trailer video
and a channel description

can also help viewers understand
what they can expect if they subscribe.

The more complete your
channel is, the easier it’ll be

for viewers to understand what you do
and what they’ll get to enjoy by watching.

You can add or update all of these with
the customization page in YouTube Studio.

Now that you have your channel set up,
you’re ready to start uploading videos.

Good luck and thanks for watching!
