Branding Youtube Channel and Making Money From Youtube
In this post let’s see how to brand a youtube channel we have created so that user’s know about our channel.
Before we start uploading videos to our new youtube channel we need to make sure below settings are done. So that it will help us to promote, add default descriptions to every video we upload, a channel description to let users know what we offer to them through your channel and the most important thing is Keyword setup.
1. Branding your channel
2. Upload defaults
3. Channel introduction
4. Channel keyword setup
Let’s go through each settings in detail:
1. Branding your channel : Have you not seen the logo of the channel when you watch youtube videos? the one which appear on right end bottom corner? That’s it. It is the brand logo which youtuber’s have in default. This is nothing but the watermark for your videos. This is what we are going to create now.
a. Login to youtube and go to channel (left side)
b. Click on channel and you see 4 options. Click on Branding as below.
c. Click on “Add Watermark” button and you see choose file to upload button
d. Select the file from your machine (laptop or desktop) and click OK.
e. Click on Save button. Done!
f. For the display time – choose any option from the dropdown
2. Upload Defaults: Each time you upload a video we need to add the description in it. It’s a time consuming process to add all your social links, google app links if any. Youtube provides us a way to have some information by default when we upload any video. Go to the Upload Defaults tab, you see a list of text boxes i.e for Title , Description etc.
Add a generic title in the textbox and add some description like social links, about the video or about your channel and some keywords. Also fill up the tags section which your channel is about. Make sure the tags match the channel keywords.
3. Channel Description and Keyword settings: Go to the my channel under account, click on customize and then go to Account tab and click on description and give an introduction about your channel. That’s it!
4. Keywords for your channel : Adding keyword to your channel is important because you need to market your channel through keywords.
Go to creator studio and then navigate to channel (left side bar) and click on channel -> Advanced. You see the section keywords. Add all the keywords related to your channel and then hit save.
That’s it. Now we are ready with our channel. Next important thing is to choose the perfect niche or the vlog content/subject. I will explain all about the niche in up coming posts.
