Create a YouTube Account for your Business

It’s time you set up a YouTube account for your business. The YouTube stats speak for themselves: it’s a platform with over 1 billion users, that regularly reaches more 18 to 34 and 18 to 49 year-olds than any cable network in the U.S. In other words, it’s worth your time to get the social reach.

And now that most social networks support YouTube videos and Google ranks them much higher in organic searches, you’ve got even more incentive to jump on the YouTube train. It’s easy to upload and manage, share them across your social networks, monitor and manage comments—all from one place.

Let’s get started. This post will walk you through the process, from start to finish.

The first thing to note is that YouTube accounts are directly linked to Google accounts. So you can either use an existing Google account to create your YouTube account, or you can set up a YouTube account from scratch and a Google account will be created for you in the process.

We’ll start by going over the steps for setting up a YouTube account from scratch.

How to create a YouTube account if you don’t have a Google account
1. Go to youtube.com
2. Click “Sign-in” in the top right corner of the page.
3. Select “Create account.”


4. Fill out the fields required to create your Google account.
Once you’ve created your Google account, you’ll be taken to the YouTube homepage.

From there:
1. Click on “My Channel” from the menu on the left side.


2. Click on “Use a business or other name” on the pop-up that appears.


3. Choose a name for your channel and the category that best describes your business. Note that a Google+ page will automatically be created under this name as well.

Or, you can choose an existing account

That’s it. You are ready to start posing videos and getting the most out of your social.
