Guide to create a new Youtube channel

#1. Own a gmail account

If you want to start a youtube channel, then you must have a valid gmail account. Without gmail account, you can not sign-up on youtube to start a new channel.

So, if you have a gmail account then there's no problem. You can use it or if you want to have a seperate gmail account for your youtube channel, then you can also create a new gmail account specially for your youtube channel.

#2. Sign-up on YouTube

Open website on your desktop browser or open it on your smartphone browser with desktop site mode.

Once the website gets open, click on "Sign in" button on the top right corner.

Now enter your gmail account credentials (address & password) to complete the sign-in process. (Make sure that you have complete access to gmail account which you are using while sign-in process. Also don't forget to add recovery options such as recovery email & recovery phone number into your gmail account to recover it if something goes wrong.)


#3. Creating a new channel

After signing-in to youtube, you are now ready to create to a new youtube channel.

For that,

Click on your "profile icon" at the top right corner and then click on "create a channel".


On your next screen, you will see two options to create your youtube channel. Either you can create a channel with name and profile picture which you have in your google account or you can create a channel using a brand or other custom name and picture. (I recommend you to go with "use a custom name" option).


Next, it will ask you to enter a custom name for your youtube channel. So, write down the name you'd like as your channel name. 

After writing the name, tick mark ✔️ "I understand that I am creating a new Google Account with its own settings, including YouTube search and watch history".

Finally click on "Create" button.


After that, you will get options to further customize your channel by adding some important details such as,

>> You can upload a profile picture for your youtube channel.

>> You can also add a discription about your channel.

>> You can also add different links to youtube channel. (Those links could be your website link or your social media links).

Fill out those details which you think is useful and that's it.
