Hello There, if you are reading this then you are going to do something special from today. This is the right time to start, if I talk about myself then I started making YouTube videos almost a couple of months ago. Maybe you don’t know, but YouTube has changed most of its settings recently. So read carefully how to make a YouTube channel? with a step by step process, don’t miss that at all!
A YouTube channel entertains its audience with
Health & Fitness

I am going to share with you some most essential points if you are just a beginner. As you know that YouTube is the second-most visited website in the world behind Google—YouTube’s parent company. YouTube welcomes to their users, where you’ll need to fulfill your video creator dreams that aim to educate you on your YouTube journey.
Before You Make A YouTube Channel – What’s Your Niche?
If you are a beginner and going with an aim to be a successful professional YouTuber then I would suggest you have a Niche for your channel. For a YouTube channel, a niche is a specific topic type or a category! Make sure you must have your niche for a blog channel – the one you are more passionate about and have interested in. That way you will follow your passion and enjoy your YouTube journey.
Let me give you a simple example. What’s your channel about? If your answer such as, “My channel is all about fitness, and it’s about gaming too, “and it’s also about travel,” and so on, so it won’t make any sense. Once you’ve grown your channel, people love watching your videos and you’ve got millions of subscribers who madly follow you only then you can take them on a journey wherever you want.
Open YouTube & Sign-in
If you‘ve ever signed into Gmail, Google Maps, Google Play, or any other Google service, you must have a Google Account, which will help you to sign-in to the YouTube channel. It doesn’t matter whether the name and email address associated with your existing Google account. Because your existing Google account details won’t be publicly linked with your YouTube account as the account is just a key to get you in.
If you don’t yet have a Google account then follow these
1. Go to the Google account creation page. You can use an existing email address or choose to create a new Gmail address for your account.
2. Enter your details and click Next. That’s It!
Your channel will come with the same name as your Google account, which you can immediately.
In order to change the name of your new YouTube account. You need to click on your account profile and select Settings. In settings, select Edit on Google, and change the channel name whatsoever you want to keep. After this just refresh the page once, now you can see the channel name has been changed. Refer to the below images
Create Your YouTube Brand Account
Your Google account will give you a personal YouTube account automatically. With a personal YouTube account, you will be the owner of the channel, meaning you can’t use your brand name. However, to create a business YouTube account, you will need to set up a Brand Account.
With a YouTube brand account, you can give access to your team members and customize your channel accordingly. To create a one, log in to YouTube using your Google account details and open your YouTube channels page. To create a new brand channel
1. Go to your account profile and select Settings.
2. In settings, select Add or manage your channel(s).
3. Click on Create a new channel.
4. Enter your brand name and click Create. That’s It!
Now if you go back to your channels page, you’ll find both your accounts (Personal & Brand). It also gives you access to YouTube analytics, which gives you great insights into who’s watching your videos and what kind of content they respond to best.

Every brand in the world has its own logo/identity image, so before anyone comes to your channel and view your video content, make sure that you’ve crafted imagery for your channel that clicks with your brand.
So it’s important to present a strong brand identity, just as you have a dedicated icon and banner for the likes of Facebook or Twitter, YouTube is no different. In order to add/change the channel image, refer to the following steps
