Step 2: Once your account has been created you will find a tab at the top called “My Channel.” Click this tab to set up your YouTube channel.

Step 3: Inside the “My Channel” tab you will find various options. Begin with the post bulletin tab. This allows you to write a bulletin that helps you to communicate with your subscribers. This a great place to introduce yourself and your business.

Step 4: Next is the settings tab. This allows you to add tags or keywords to your channel. Use keywords that will lead people to your channel and that will enhance your business prospective.

Step 5: The themes and colors tab is the next step in creating your channel. It allows you to choose a predetermined color for the background. These are for the most part normal colors such as blue, red, yellow and green. Pink, black and gray are also available.

There is a more advanced setting that allows a seasoned user more options. You can upload a custom background and there are other color options available. You can change the font styles and sizes as well.

Step 6: Modules is the next tab. There are number of options you can choose but the top 5 that really need to be included are:

A.    Comments

C.    Subscriptions
D.    Friends
E.    Recent Activity

These will help navigate others to your channel. It allows comments on your videos, people to subscribe to your channel, shows what videos have been recently added as well as other options.

Step 7: There is also a videos and playlist tab. Here you can pick which video to display on your channel. This can be any of your own videos or a video from someone else that you have selected. If you are promoting a particular site or attempting to brand yourself then you may wish to select a video that emphasis this.

Always remember to click on Save before continuing on to the next tab. Once this is complete you can upload your first video.

When your account is ready then click the upload button to add the first video.  When you upload you will see there are various places that need information. Be sure to put your URL in the description field first. YouTube only displays a certain number of characters and you want people to find your website. Don’t forget to add tabs or keywords so that people can find your video easily.

You can connect a number of accounts to your YouTube account. Facebook, Twitter and MySpace are just the tip of the iceberg. This allows you to publish the video link to these sites immediately. This is a great way to start marketing your new video.
