Step 1: Go to YouTube

  • On the Home Page you will find the “Sign In” button in the Top Right Corner. (Click on it)
  • YouTube doesn’t actually have a “Sign Up” button so that’s why you need to press on the  “Sign In” button.

 

 

Step 2: Google Sign In page

  • After you have clicked on the “Sign In” button the google sign in page will open.
  • If you do have any google accounts you can choose to sign in with one of them.
  • Or if you want to create a brand new google account for your YouTube Channel click on “Sign in with a different account” at the bottom of the page.

 

Open Google Account

 

 

Step 3: Choose an Account 

  • After you have clicked on the “Sign in with a different account” button the Choose an account page will open.
  • Basically this is where you can sign in with a different google account if you have one.
  • But we are going to click on “Add account”, because we want to create a brand new Google Account for our YouTube Channel.

Step 4: Sign in to Continue to YouTube 

  • After you have clicked on the “Add account” button the Sign in to Continue to YouTube page will open.
  • If you do have another Google account this is where you can add it.
  • But we want to create a new Google account so go ahead and click on the “Create account” button.

Step 5: Create your Google Account 

  • Finally we are at the Create your Google Account page.
  • In the 1st Field you need to fill in your name and surname. Now this can be your real name and surname or it could be your channel name. It does not really matter because you are going to create your actual YouTube Channel after your Google Account is open. 
  • In the 2nd Field you have to enter an email address. Now you can use an existing email address or you can create a new one. This can be any email address you want. 
  • In the 3rd and 4th Fields you need to create a password that will be used every time you log into YouTube. 
  • In the 5th Field you need to enter your date of birth. 
  • In the 6th Field you need to enter your Gender. 
  • In the 7th Field you need to enter your Mobile phone number. Now sometimes Google will verify your account with a verification code that it sends to your mobile phone. 
  • In the 8th Field you need to enter your Location. 
  • When you have completed all the fields click on the “Next step” button.

Step 13: Use YouTube As 

  • After you have clicked on the “Create a channel” button the Use YouTube As page will open.
  • You will notice that your name and surname that you used to open the Google account with are filled in already. 
  • The reason for that is because if you click on the button below that says “Create Channel” you will create a YouTube Channel called whatever you entered when registering your Google Account. 
  • Example: Let’s say you used your name, Mike Meyers. When you click on “Create Channel” your YouTube Channel will be called “Mike Meyers” 
  • If you want to Name your YouTube Channel something else like “Totally Sick Product Reviews” click of the button that says “Use a business or other name

Step 14: Brand Account 

  • After you have clicked on the “Use a business or other name” button YouTube will redirect you to your Google Account. 
  • Here you will be asked to create a Brand Account. 
  • A Brand Account is separate from your main Google Account and the Brand Account that you will be creating will be your YouTube Channel. 
  • Go ahead and choose the name for your YouTube Channel.
