How to Create a Youtube Channel





Creating a Youtube channel is not a major task anymore. Youtube is one of the most popular things in the world. And I do not remember encountering anyone who does not know what it is. In fact, Youtube has become an earning source for many. Everyday people create their channel and start uploading their content. So, today I will provide you with a simple guide that will help you create a channel for yourself if you are interested in making one. It is not a difficult task. On the contrary, it is one of the easiest things you can do.

What is a Youtube Channel?

Youtube Channel is a place where a viewer can find all the content that you upload. For example, if you make a video and decide to upload it on Youtube, you would need a channel. And once that channel is created, you can go ahead and upload your videos. Also, every video that you will upload using that account would be added to that Youtube channel. And viewers can subscribe to your channel if they like the contents of your videos. And subscribers are important for any Youtuber. They get notified whenever you upload a new video and the subscribers of the channel tend to watch the videos more.

Creating a Youtube channel

Now that we understand what a Youtube channel is, and why it is so important, let’s get started on the process of making one. There are many ways to create a Youtube channel, and all of them are pretty easy. How easy is it, you ask? You can create one with your mobile, that’s how easy it is. Of course, I will guide you through the method of creating it using your mobile and your PC.

Note: You will need a Google account to create a Youtube channel. You can create one by just registering an account on gmail.

Creating your Youtube channel using a computer

Let us create one using your home desktop/laptop. The steps are easy to follow. Following are the steps to create a Youtube channel:

  1. Open the Youtube Page. To do that, you would have to type, “” in your web browser address bar.
  2. Now, you would be able to see your profile photo on the top right corner of the webpage.
  3. Click on your profile photo.
  4. A menu would open up like a dropbox. 
  5. You would be able to see an option called Your channel.
  6. Click on that.

As soon as you click on that option, Youtube automatically creates your channel for you. Of course, you can make changes, and also, view all the data related to your channel. The default name of the channel is going to be the same one that you have on your Gmail account. And in order to change the name of the channel, you would have to change your name on your gmail account.

Creating your Youtube channel using an Android/iPhone phone

Now, let’s see the process of creating a Youtube channel through an Android/iPhone phone. The process for both mobile operating systems is the same. Following are the steps of creating a Youtube channel using your smartphone:

  1. Install the youtube application. It is usually installed by default, but if some reason, it is not, you can download it from the play store or apple store.
  2. Open the Youtube application.
  3. You would be able to see your profile photo on the top right-hand corner of your phone screen.
  4. Click on that profile photo, and a menu would show up.
  5. In that menu, you would be able to locate an option called Your channel.
  6. Click on that option.

Just like a PC, it would create a Youtube channel automatically when you select that option. You can make changes to your name and upload a video. But you would not be able to view as many things about your channel as you would be on a PC.


The steps that I have provided are fairly simple and easy to follow. And once you go through them, you would feel like creating a Youtube channel is a child’s play. Which in many ways it is. So, go create your own Youtube channel, and start uploading your content. Many people have become popular through it, maybe you could be the next one! 

I hope you found this helpful, and you’re able to get a million subscribers to your channel.
