How to start a successful Youtube channel in 2022 (ultimate step by step for beginners)

There is so much more to YouTube than putting on a well-beat face and hitting record to let your thoughts run wild. The more time and effort you put into planning and creating content for YouTube, the more growth you’ll see in the long run. Today, I’m sharing step by step how to start a successful Youtube channel for beginners in 2022!

Because the quality of your content is just as important as the quality of your video, so it’s vital to know how to plan and create quality content.

Let’s get started, shall we?

How to start a successful Youtube channel for beginners

 

STEP 1. How to choose a YouTube niche

When planning content for a successful YouTube channel, it’s crucial to stay true to who you are. Take a moment to ask yourself questions so you can better understand yourself as a whole. This will help to guide you in the right direction.

If you’re multi-passionate, it can be easy to get carried away trying to create different types of content. But doing so without a clear plan in place can make your youtube channel content seem inconsistent. So auditing yourself is not a step you want to skip.

An important step of starting a YouTube channel is determining what niche you will be.

When figuring out your niche, think about what you want to be known for, what interests you, and what you can talk about often. I recommend narrowing down your niche to no more than 2 when you’re just starting off.

When I first started, I only focused on Beauty, and then as my audience grew, I expanded into home decor and lifestyle content. Your niche isn’t permanent, and as you evolve, your niche will change too, but for now, focus on one thing!

For example…
– When Amazon first started, they only sold books online.
– When Nike first started, they only sold athletic tennis shoes.
– When Oprah first started, she was known only for her tv show.
– When Dwayne johnson first started, he was known only as a wrestler on WWE (Do you smell what the Rock is cooking?! *raises left eyebrow*)
– When Will Smith first started, he was known only for rapping.



BUT they evolved.

It’s perfectly normal to grow eventually, but when you first start, focus on dominating one thing! If you want to become an influencer, then you have to focus on being known for something within a specific field.

Whatever niche you choose, make sure it aligns with your passions/expertise and that you will continue to be interested in it for years to come.

Questions to ask yourself to figure out your YouTube niche:

What are you passionate about?

What do you enjoy doing? What can you talk about all day? What is something that you feel connected to?

What do you advocate for?

What is something that you never get tired of doing or supporting? Body positivity, beauty, hair care, helping women online, writing, singing? What’s your thang, sis?

What are your gifts and talents?

You can take the things you’re passionate about and your abilities and mesh them together. In doing this, you’re sharing content that you’re passionate about while staying true to yourself. There’s no room for comparison here. There’s only one you.

Think of it this way, only Beyoncé can do Beyoncé, and only you can do you.

 

What’s your personality?

What part of your personality do you want to showcase through your videos?

Let your personality shine. Do you have a killer sense of humor? Is your positive personality contagious? What makes you, you? Don’t hold these things back. The world needs your sparkle. Your personality and character adds to the uniqueness of your content, and that can’t be replicated.

What makes you unique?

Lastly, what makes you unique? What do you have that nobody else does? What story have you lived through that adds a deeper meaning to the content that you share? Include the things that make you stand out in a crowd in this list.

Take your answers to these questions into consideration when thinking of content ideas. Your passions, talents, personality, and uniqueness are integral parts of your brand. Your combination of these categories is part of what opens the door for one-of-a-kind content.

Be honest with yourself

Don’t think of things you want to be good at in the future, but find the things you do well already. Are you a natural communicator? Do you have impressive writing skills? Do you have an eye for fashion or graphic design?

If you have a hard time pinpointing your gifts and talents, ask a brutally honest friend what they think. They’ll tell you.

When planning content for your YouTube channel, it’s crucial to stay true to who you are.

Popular Youtube niches

Are you going to post beauty-themed videos, how-to tech videos, sit down storytimes? Based on your answers above decide on a general theme and niche for your YouTube content.

Common Niches for YouTube Channels:

  • Beauty
  • Travel
  • Fitness
  • Food
  • Finance
  • Fashion
  • Relationships
  • Career
  • Gaming
  • Politics
  • Home Decor
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Love & Relationships
  • Hair
  • Family & Home
  • Photography
  • Diets (Such as Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo)
  • Technology
  • Investing
  • Lifestyle Humor

 

 

If you don’t have a lot of experience in a niche, please stay away from it. Don’t start a YouTube channel in a niche simply because you’ve witnessed others’ success in it. You have to actually enjoy what you’re talking about.

 

STEP 2: How to choose videos topics for YouTube (that people actually watch!)

With the niche you’ve chosen, list your video content ideas.

There are two main ways to go about this. First, think of the content that you would like to watch. If you create videos on topics you enjoy, you’re more likely to record a higher quality video. It’s also safe to say that if you find something interesting, others most likely will too.

If you already have a following, be sure to take the knowledge you have of your viewer demographics and interests into consideration as well.

Second, see what’s already out there. Watch some YouTube channels that share similar content to the content that you want to share.

Additionally, you can use the YouTube search bar to your advantage. Type in a topic or video idea into the search bar to see how popular that style of video is. From there, you can filter the responses to show the most recent or the most popular video on that topic.

Ps. This is a great way to see which title formats and keywords work best for that type of video.

You can take your research one step further by watching videos within the niche you want to be in. It’s essential, though, to watch for inspiration, not to copy. We’re not out here to replicate; we’re out here to represent.

Originality is key!

For example, if you want to review a specific product, you can reference similar reviews. This is a great way to see different review formats to get a better idea of how you could format yours. Then you can tweak it to fit your style.

If you’re doing a tag or a trend started by someone else, always be sure to give credit where credit is due. The point of referencing other videos is to get a better idea for an aspect of yours, never to copy.

For deeper research, I highly recommend using plugins like VidIQ and TubeBuddy (both have free options).

HACK to get MORE views on your videos

Tubebuddy allows you to fully optimize your channel. They provide the best keywords and topics to use for videos that people are actually looking for. They tell you if your title tag is too long, too short or how likely it is to rank.

If you want to start a successful Youtube channel then you want to create videos that people will actually watch and engage in.

The best way to have videos that people watch is to have videos that people can easily find. When you plan and research videos, you are helping your videos become easily discoverable, which thus increases views and subscribers.

TubeBuddy helps you plan content by showing you popular tops and video types.

For example, let’s say I want to do a patio decor tutorial. By using the “keyword explorer” in Tubebuddy, I can find the best topics and keywords for my video.

Searching “patio decor” and Tubebuddy gives it a 9 rating. This means out of a score of 100; my video is about 9% likely to rank in the search results. This is awful

Tubebuddy will tell you if the keyword is searched often (a good thing) and if there’s a lot of videos already created that will saturate your view appearing in search results(a bad thing).

You want people to type in “Patio decor” and your video shows up on the first page because let’s be honest, how often do you click on page 2 or 3 when searching for something on Youtube? Rarely! You usually click whatever is on page #1! So you want to choose keywords that allow you to show up on page number 1!

Another thing I love about Tubebuddy is that they give you similar keywords on the side. I have the upgraded version so I can get unlimited keyword suggestions. I highly recommend it if you’re committed to these Youtube streets.

Now, let’s try “cheap patio decorating ideas” using Tubebuddy’s keyword explorer:

Tubebuddy rates this a 62, which is pretty good because it means you’re more likely to rank on YouTube and get more views!

The higher your videos rank, the more people will see your videos. Ranking increases your visibility which increases your subscribers, views, and *ahem* money from Adsense if you want to make money with YouTube.

Using Tubebuddy to plan your content, you know it would make more sense to create a “patio decor video focusing on being budget-friendly over a basic patio decor video that’s less likely to discovered and viewed by new YouTubers.

Be sure to research

Now that you’ve got your video ideas listed, it’s time to research. This is where you’re able to provide the most value to your viewers through the quality of your research.

Have you watched a quality product review based solely on opinion with no facts what-so-ever? How likely are you to buy that item? While opinions are important, credible information is a necessity. That’s why you’ve gotta do the research.

When researching, find as many credible resources as possible. If the theme of your video is testing beauty products, actually spend time testing the product before sharing it. Do your research on the brand and the ingredients found in the products you’re using. Learn more for yourself so that you can share useful information with your viewers.

STEP 3: How to create a content schedule (to stay consistent!)

A content plan will help you keep track of video topics, how often you need to post, which subjects you will cover, and what you need to complete a task,

I highly recommend having a content schedule and deciding on an exact day that youtube videos go live. I recommend it be on the same day(s) and time(s) each week.

This helps YouTube know when to push out your content as well as allows your subscribers to know what day to expect new content from you.

If you’re a digital gal (or guy), you can use the notes app on your phone or, you can use free digital resources like Evernote and Trello to gather for creating a content schedule.

Evernote is a free note-taking app that allows you to digitize your thoughts that you can access on your computer, tablet, or mobile device. This option is helpful when you want to jot something down on the go but don’t have a pen or paper nearby. Plus, the paper-free method is good for the environment.

Trello
is a free web-based, list-making software, and that helps jot down quick lists. Trello integrates well with other apps, like Google calendar. If you’re looking for well-rounded software to organize your life, this is the tool for you.

You can use Trello to list props you need, items you want to have handy, or talking points you want to remember.

You’ll also to include the following details inside your content schedule:
✓ Date to post
✓ Time (and time zone) to schedule
✓ Copy to include such as video title, keywords, and description
✓ Thumbnail

STEP 4: What Equipment you need for your youtube channel

Once you have all of your Youtube content and channel planned out, it’s time to ensure you have the right equipment to record videos.

When it comes to recording YouTube videos, the 3 basic things you need are:
1. Something to record video with (so people can see you)
2. Something to record audio with (so people can hear you)
3. Something to edit video with
A newer cell phone can do all of 3 things, and when I first started my YouTube channel, I recorded on my iPhone too!. When starting off, use what you already have!

If you want elevated videos then the best way to have high-quality videos is investing in high-quality equipment. However, you don’t need the newest or most expensive cameras to have a successful Youtube channel!

Here are a few things I currently use and vouch for but they are a little pricey:

1. Camera


 

2. Audio


 

3. Lighting

STEP 5: How to create a Youtube account & set up your channel

Once you have planned a successful YouTube channel, it’s time to actually START your channel by creating a YouTube account!

Here is an awesome video by The Content Bug that shares step by step how to set-up and start a youtube channel from scratch.

STEP 6: How to create videos on Youtube

You’ve planned, researched, and created your account. Now its time to be SEEN and create great videos! The last step to starting a successful Youtube channel is creating, editing, and uploading videos!

Here’s a video sharing my behind the scenes as I set-up, record, and edit my YouTube videos:
 

Record the video

When it comes to being on camera, it can be a little scary putting yourself out there!

I promise it gets easier with time and practice. If you’ve planned and researched your content like in step 2, it will be a lot easier to create videos because you know exactly what to talk about.

When it comes to being more natural on camera, here are a few tips:
1. Imagine you’re talking to one person
2. Have a bullet list of everything you want to talk about
3. Practice
5. Breathe. (seriously… say a sentence, then breathe. Say another sentence, breathe)
6. Progress beats perfection. The only way to improve at something is to do it over and over again

Seriously, the more you create videos the better you will get, so I urge you to push through. You will build camera-confidence the more you put yourself on camera.

Edit the video

Now it’s time to edit your video! You want to ensure you are removing any parts of the video where you’re rambling, saying a bunch of ums, or ultimately just doesn’t fit within the video.

When it comes to the best video editors, I highly recommend Filmora video editor because it’s super beginner-friendly with an easy interface and also allows you to add special effects, texts, cool transitions and there’s even a green screen option!

It’s less than $100 for the editor, and you can even use it to edit Instagram stories, Instagram posts, podcasts, and so much more!

Publish the video

Recently, Youtube changed the way you upload videos (they change the platform often). Here’s a video from Creator Fundamentals sharing step by step how to upload a YouTube video in 2020.

Market & optimize the content

Once you have uploaded the video, the final step is to optimize the video so you can get more eyeballs on your content. I have a completely free checklist of everything you should do when uploading new YouTube videos to ensure you get the most views and traffic!

YouTube is a powerful way to express yourself while sharing your passions with the world. That’s why it’s important to be intentional with every area of your YouTube channel.

The BEST video equipment for starting a channel

Are you ready to create a YouTube channel sharing the things you love? Maybe that’s cooking, a family vlog, hair tutorials, or something in between! Whatever the topic, there are a few things you want to acquire for your YouTube channel when you are first starting off. Today I’m sharing some of the top essentials for starting a Youtube channel!

NOTE: When starting a YouTube channel, you truly only need 2 things which is something to record on and something to edit on. That can be your phone.

Matter of fact, when I first started my YouTube channel, I actually recorded with my cracked iPhone leaned against a window and that’s how I collected my first 5,000 youtube subscribers!

As my channel grew, I knew I had to elevate so I invested in better equipment. Starting off you do NOT need the newest greatest things. I am a firm believer in using what you have and upgrading as you go. That’s exactly what I did.

Essentials for starting a Youtube channel

1. Camera

You don’t have to go out and buy a brand new camera… you probably have one right in your hand (which is your phone). You can use your phone to record videos and it’s not that hard to do!

Using your phone to record is a cheaper alternative to buying a digital camera. However, I do feel that if you want truly elevated videos then you will need a DSLR camera as these deliver that top-notch cinematic look.

One of my favorite cameras for shooting Youtube videos is the Sony 6400. While there is a slight learning curve, this camera packs a lot of punch with 4k quality (for super clear and crisp video quality), auto-focus so you’re not blurry when recording and, it’s lightweight which makes it a great vlogging camera.

2. Lighting

It doesn’t matter how amazing your camera is… if your lighting is not great then you won’t look great!

There are two types of lighting when it comes to recording and that’s natural sunlight (ie: the sun) and artificial light (such as ring lights and standing lights). You can choose to use one or both!

The sun provides natural lighting which is complimentary and free. However, relying only on natural sunlight means you won’t be able to record at night or while it’s raining.

I, personally, use a combination of both. I use artificial lighting during the day and photography lights during the night so I can record no matter the time of day or weather.

Here are a few lights I currently use and recommend:



3. SD Card

A SD card (which stands for Secure Digital Card) is a memory card that you record on so you can transfer to your computer.

If you are using a DSLR then there’s a very high chance it has an SD reader. There are a ton of SD cards and ultimately you want to choose one that has a decent amount of storage and works for your camera.

My personal favorite SD card for youtube is the Sandisk extreme since it allows you to record 4k quality with no problem. I highly recommend getting at least 128GB so you can record multiple videos within the SD card.


4. Microphone

Video is awesome because we can not only see you but we can hear you which means crappy quality video and crappy quality audio is a serious no-no.

If your audience struggles to hear you then they will, unfortunately, turn your video off which is why it’s important to invest in high-quality audio equipment such as a mic.

One of the top microphones for popular Youtubers is the Rode microphone.


5. Tripod

Back in the day, I would sit my iPhone against a stack of books near a window and record my videos. It worked during that moment in time (and sometimes it didn’t work…. and would fall down during recording) so as I elevated my equipment, a tripod was absolutely a must-have for me.

When it comes to a tripod, I recommend ones that will allow you to record vertical and horizontal as well as from different angles and heights.

I have been using the Amazon Basics tripod for years now and highly recommend it. It’s sturdy and can be adjusted as high as 60 inches


6. Camera remote

A camera remote is not a necessity when it comes to equipment essentials for starting a Youtube channel. However, it will make your life a lot easier because you will be able to record, zoom in/out, take photos, pause and so much more without having to leave your seat and constantly adjust the camera.

Now there are different remotes based on the camera you use so be sure to check that your remote is compatible with your camera (did you know they even hate remotes for cell phones?!)

 

7. Back-up battery

Imagine this: You’re recording a youtube video and everything is going great. The sun is shining perfect, you’re deep into your content, and suddenly your battery dies…

Now you have to stop everything you’re doing and wait for your battery to charge up.

Trust me, it’s not fun. Especially if by the time your battery charges, it’s now dark and you’re no longer in the mood to record.

This is where having backup batteries come in! Make sure you have at least 2 batteries for your camera so if one dies, you have another one!

Additionally, look into plug-in batteries that never die and prevent you from ever needing a backup battery!

8. Camera Lens

Different camera lenses do different things.

Some are great for vlogging and being on the go.
Some are great for real estate because they go out further out allowing you to get more into a frame,
Some are great for sitting down talking-style videos because they focus on you allow you and make your background super blurry.

If your sole purpose is recording Youtube videos then find 1-3 lens that will work for you since lenses can be expensive.

For example, I tend to shoot 2 types of videos which are beauty and decor videos. Beauty videos are usually me sitting at my desk so I need a lens that will get close up to my face so my audience can see my makeup application.

For decor videos, I need a lens that will zoom further out so my audience can see an entire room in one frame.

Different lenses will produce different outcomes so I highly recommend researching the best lens for your needs. Also, don’t be afraid to head to your nearest BestBuy and test our lens so you can get a good feel before purchasing.

9. Cleaning Kit

Protect your investment by cleaning your camera, lens, and mic regularly.

This cleaning kit includes everything you need for under $20!

10. Background

If you want to switch up the background to your videos then a great youtube essential is clothes to hang up for different background colors.

You can use sheets, poster board, and even fabric to switch up the look! You can tape it, nail it, or invest in a background backdrop stand such as this one:

11. Computer

Can you record and edit videos from your phone? Yes, yes you can.

Is it the easiest and best? No.

When it comes to editing videos, I’m a firm believer in editing on a laptop or desktop since you will have a lot more options and freedom.

I currently use an Apple MacBook air but seriously, I think any computer that allows you to edit videos is great.


12. Editing software

Most computers come with free video editing software such as windows movie maker or iMovie.

I used iMovie up until a few years ago when I decided I wanted more special effects and invested in filmora wondershare.

I highly recommend it for beginners since its super user-friendly, and comes with great special effects!

Okay, while I may be acting slightly over dramatic… if you record, edit and publish your YouTube videos without optimizing them, you’re doing yourself a SERIOUS disservice.

Why you should optimize your videos

YouTube is a search engine and if, you don’t optimize your videos correctly then Y,ouTube can’t rank them or show them to the very people interested in your content which means no one will see your video.

Google and YouTube don’t watch your videos, so they have no idea what your video is about. It’s up to you to tell the #1 and #2 most popular search engines (that’s google and YouTube FYI) what your actual videos are about and the keywords most relevant to the content.

When you optimize your videos, it makes that video more likely to be discovered by a relevant audience (the people actually looking for your video who will be most likely to watch it!). The more views a video gets in a short period of time, the higher it will rank for keywords related to that video so yes, views= good.

Once you upload a video, it’s doesn’t stop there. You should be promoting the video and optimizing it for increased video views. You want your videos to have a strong YouTube presence and you do that by fully optimizing your videos so Google and YouTube actually understand.

I don’t want your video to fall into the black hole of no views and no engagement which ,is why I’m sharing 9 things your video needs to increase YouTube views.

Nine things every video ABSOLUTELY NEEDS so you can increase YouTube views

1. Research the best video title

Your video titles need to be written for robots and humans.
Say whaaaaaaa?
Your video title should be catchy enough that people actually want to click on the video and watch it AND y,our video title should also tell the YouTube algorithm what the video is about, so they can rank it.

Example #1: Your YouTube title is “How to make the most delicious chicken noodle soup ever”
– Yo.uTube knows the video is about cooking chicken noodle soup. So if someone searches “chicken noodle soup recipe” your video should pop up because you have those keywords.
– This video also makes people want to click it because who doesn’t want to make the most delicious soup ever?!


Now let’s see some examples of some trash video titles:

Title: Video #1
– Terrible. What is the video even about?!
– This doesn’t make anyone want to click on the video nor does it tell the YouTube algorithm what the video is about so it won’t rank for anything

Title: Going to the club
– Huh? At what club? The baseball club? The nightclub? The 90s bestselling book, the babysitters club? WE NEED MORE INFO!
– SOME people may click on this but, the majority won’t find the video because YouTube won’t rank it for anything since it’s not specific.
– A better title would be “3 things you need for the baseball club” or “5 best nightclubs in New York you HAVE TO ATTEND”

 


A great video title draws in more viewers.YouTube sees the attention your video is getting and pushes your video up in search results. Therefore, your video gets seen by even more people! WIN-WIN.

 

How to find the best video titles for MAJOR views

The best tool to create great YouTube titles is Tubebuddy.

I use it every single time I’m researching videos and optimizing them.

Tubebuddy is great because it tells you what titles are ranking, what people are searching for and, how well that title will do compared to other similar named videos.

Tubebuddy is free to use, however, I like unlimited keyword searches and suggestions so I have the paid version. It’s totally worth it and pays for itself since I’m creating better views which means more youtube absence (revenue).

 

2. Create a bright video thumbnail

Create bright thumbnails that portray what the video is about AND make people want to actually click on the video. Videos with a little text do great and videos showing a face tend to perform higher as well.

I highly recommend Canva to create Youtube thumbnails! It’s easy to do and they even have templates to follow if you’re not very design-savvy.

 

3. Add the best keywords

Absolutely do not under any condition forget to add keywords to your video!
Your keywords should tell what the video is about so if someone was to type in your keywords, your video would pop up and be relevant.

The higher up in the list of tags, the more weight it has. This means that the keywords you include first are the ones YouTube will care more about so make sure you are adding the best keywords at the very beginning of the keywords section, in your description and even in your title!

For example, let’s say you’ve made a video about how to make a vegan soup. Your most relevant long-tail keyword would be “Vegan Soup Recipe”

4. Add End Screens

End screens are videos that pop up at the very last 20 seconds of a video. This is a great way to hook your viewers, so they can watch more related content that you have created!

I highly recommend adding related videos or newest uploads to your end screens so viewers can continue watching your videos after the initial video is over.

5. Add closed-captioning

Closed captioning is not just for deaf or hearing-impaired. Captions allow for different viewing experiences as well.

More and more people are watching videos on silence which makes close captioning a great option since it adds another layer to enjoying your videos.

Additionally, closed captioning is great for SEO as YouTube takes closed captioning into consideration when ranking your videos.

I use REV.com to transcribe my videos because they’re effective, less than $1.50 a minute AND they will even transcribe directly to your YouTube video.

Here’s an infographic from 3playmedia sharing why people use closed captioning:

inforgraphic supplied by 3playmedia.com

6. Utilize the Description

Your description should reinforce what the video is about with the main keywords. Also include a call to action (CTA) such as the reminder to subscribe, the URL to your website, and even affiliate links.

I make hundreds of dollars each month just from affiliate links added to my Youtube video descriptions!

You can also add time markers to important points or sections of your video. For example, if your video is about 4 exercises for belly fat you can add time markers such as:
1:36 Warm-up
2:45 Crunches
3:23 Planks
5:54 Sit-ups

This way viewers can skip to the parts of the video they want.

7. Add to a playlist

Make it easy for viewers to watch more videos on a specific topic. If you have a ton of beginner makeup videos, create a playlist for “beginner how-to’s” and another playlist for “beginner eyeshadow tutorials”

This also helps Youtube to determine what to rank and play next once your video is over.

8. Engage with your audience by commenting, liking and hearting comments

Build a community and connect with your audience by commenting, answering questions, and engaging. The first 42 hours your video is posted can determine how well your video ranks based on the engagement. Answering questions and interacting with your audience helps your engagement.

 

Answering questions and interacting with your audience helps your engagement.

 

9. Share with your community via Youtube stories

Did you know Youtube now has youtube stories? It’s similar to Instagram stories and Facebook stories, and great for showing behind the scenes and promos! Don’t sleep on Youtube stories! I find it’s easiest to use on the actual YouTube app! You can learn more about Youtube stories here.
