how to start a youtube channel

Nowadays, most of the people have been trying to move into different careers like Youtube, blogging, affiliate marketing, and other stuff. Among them, youtube has been a powerful career to start with. There are numerous creators on youtube making billions and billions of dollars per month. Even, small kids are making billions by just reviewing toys and playing games which is kind of crazy to hear. But that doesn’t mean you do review toys haha. However, there is a lot of huge competition on youtube. Amidst, you have to gear up and make your video contentful. Although, I’m here to tell you how to start a youtube channel in 2020 successfully.

Before you go onto youtube career. Maybe, you need to study and consider 3 things before you start a channel. These may help you and give you a clearance about a youtube thing.

3 Things you have to Consider

1.Niche / Topic

If you don’t know what niche/topic means. It’s simple, what videos are you going to make?

Are you going to make entertainment videos? How-to videos? Technology videos? Prank videos?ย  ย It’s all up to you which kind of videos would you like to make.

But, here’s one thing you need to see. Are you kind of a person who just uploads random videos for just making money? If you’re among them, maybe, you better stop starting a channel.

You should upload videos or start a channel with only one category which means topic. You shouldn’t upload random videos and you are restricted to do plagiarise content on youtube. It’s just a warning from me. Even if you copied other’s video and uploaded on your channel. Youtube will quickly delete the video due to violating their common guidelines and policies.

So, let’s discuss what niche you should choose particularly?

There are tons of topics you can choose like :

  • Entertainment
  • Food
  • Gaming
  • Beauty tips
  • Makeup
  • Music
  • News
  • Sports
  • Technology and Science
  • Vlogs
  • Pranks
  • Reviews

There are more topics too you can choose. It’s all depends on what do you like the most. It’s all about an interest you have. If you have great interest and know a lot of information about technology. You can share and bring comprehensive content with good SEO optimization which I will talk about it later. Although, I did give you guidance to choose which one and now it relies on you which you want to pursue the topic.

2.Commitment and Patience

Commitment and Patience plays an essential role in growing your youtube channel. Without these two qualities, you might not achieve what you dreamed of. A Successful person always has these qualities. As a result, they could able to achieve their dreams and ambitions. Working hard and being a sedulous person guides you huge success which you should keep that in your mind. Talking about youtube, it reflects the same. Even if you’re a blogger or youtube content creator. You will definitely be going to make huge success and will be a man who you wanted to be.

Youtube career plays a huge role in the future. There is going to be enormous competition for youtube. It’s lucky that you can start the youtube channel now and start working on it to grow and achieve success as you dreamed. Though, do not forget to have these qualities. If you’re a person who desires overnight success. Youtube isn’t the right place for you though.

3. Schedule your video and Be Consistent

Being reckless about youtube won’t give you visible results. As you have to be conscious and schedule the videos. You have to plan out the content you’re going to upload and get your video ready even before you have a few days to upload.

Uploading 2 videos every week is a good way of growing your channel. At least, you have to be active in the youtube channel. Even you aren’t uploading content, you try to improve your video optimization like descriptions, keywords, and eye-catching video titles.

What I can say is you must schedule your videos and always put a plan about what you’re going to do tomorrow. Write down on a paper what videos you want to make and do as soon as possible before the release date.

How to Create a Youtube Channel

Creating a youtube channel is effortless and it’s easy to create that shit. What you need to have is a Gmail account. That’s it

Let’s get to do this. I suggest you to create a separate Gmail account first irrespective of your personal account because it’s better to separate youtube emails from personal ones. So, you don’t get confused and organize things.

how to create youtube

Sign in your account or create the account. After signing up, Open Youtubeย 

As you can see, Click that ” Create a Channel ”ย 

After that, You will be asked to choose if you want to continue with your mail name or want to create a custom name for your youtube channel.

So, now it’s time to fill profile picture, channel description, and you can add links to your social media links.

youtube description

Upload an attractive profile picture


I suggest you to pick up a fascinating channel name. You have to be very unique about your name. For instance, my blog name is MHT Space. M means Movies, H means Health and T means Technology and space indicates that these three topics are planets in space. Sounds different right ? The fact is that I took 1 week to figure out a perfect name.


Bring our your creativity skills in this column. Write about yourself and what your videos about. Channel description is an important part of creating channel which most of the people ignore. So, do not forget to write perfectly and other thing is you have to lure and attract people with your channel description. Because, that would benefit your channel value.


website links


It’s time to connect your channel with social media pages and your website if you have.


Do not ignore to create pages for your youtube channel. Social Media is one of the biggest sources of traffic and it drives visitors and your followers to your latest video. Every time you launched a video, your subscribers receive notification from you. Apparently, sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes youtube doesn’t come to your favor. You must not depend on notifications to get views and engagement. That’s why social media comes into play. So, create social media pages and do a post every time you published a video and redirect your visitors and subscribers through that link.


It is also a good way to associate your channel with your site. If you ask me, should you create a website? I would say, wait ! until you get healthy engagement and a good amount of subs. You can create a site after it.


Finally, we have successfully created a youtube channel.

Click that customize channel Button

You will be redirected to this one and so now you might have got what should you do? right! As you probably would’ve uploaded a profile pic by now. But I didn’t because I’ve created that youtube channel just to show you how to create a channel lol haha

So, Shoot that Channel art button. You definitely know what is it. It is like a cover picture on Facebook. But don’t think it’s easy to customize the cover picture on youtube.
