You’ve been thinking about it for a while now and you’re finally ready to take the plunge - you want to start your very own YouTube channel! Congratulations, and welcome to the exciting world of online video content creation! In this article, we’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how to start your channel, from coming up with ideas for videos to filming and editing them.

We all have different skills, interests, knowledge and passions. But we usually do not have a wide audience who would be interested in our videos or whatever it is that we would like to share with them. YouTube provides a great opportunity of connecting with the world and share things that you are passionate about (not becoming a celebrity though).

Step by Step Guide to Start a YouTube Channel

If you're reading this, then you're probably interested in starting your own YouTube channel. Congratulations! You're about to embark on a fantastic journey that can lead to some amazing opportunities.

Before you get started, there are a few things you need to know. First and foremost, starting a YouTube channel takes time, effort, and dedication. You need to be able to produce high-quality content regularly if you want your channel to be successful.

So how does one go about getting started with YouTube? 

Well, first, you will need to create your account by going to and clicking on “Sign In” on the top right hand corner of the screen. Create a username (this will be your channel name) that is appropriate and easy for people to remember.

Next, you will need to upload a profile picture by clicking on "Edit Profile” at the bottom of the screen and uploading an appropriate picture. Then click on “Channel Art” and upload an image to be displayed at the top of your channel page. This image cannot exceed 2MB in size, so please do not load up all the space with your images or you won’t be able to save it! 

Then, add some information about yourself by clicking on “About” under “My Channel”. You can also add other social media links such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & TikTok.

Next, you will need to create some videos. This can be a process of actually creating the video/product or just diving in head first and pushing for it to be created. For most people, this is not something they have time to do. I personally am a video person, so I have done both things – created the video and then edited it myself afterwards. Instead of creating a video about how to make your own homemade pizza dough or whatever it is that you want to do, create a video about why you like doing this particular thing. For example: “I like making homemade pizza because it is easy and healthy”.

Tips for Creating Content

1. Choose your Niche.

Choose your Niche

What kind of content do you want to create? What are you passionate about? Think carefully about this before you start creating videos. The foundation of your channel will be your niche, so it's crucial to choose something you're genuinely interested in.

2. Create Great Content.

Create great Content

This should be your number one priority when starting a YouTube channel. If your videos are high quality and engaging, people will keep coming back for more. Remember, YouTube is all about providing value to your audience, so make sure your videos offer something they'll find useful or entertaining.

3. Promote your Videos.

After creating your video, you can upload it to YouTube by logging into your account and clicking on "Upload". Then simply upload your video. When you have uploaded it, you can then share the link with people and ask them to watch the video, if they already do not know about YouTube.

After a few days or so, you will begin to get comments on your videos. These comments are from people who found something interesting about your video(s) that they would like to point out or comment on.
