Starting a YouTube channel in Kenya and earning from it is one of the easiest ways to make money online, but it’s also pretty new. So if you are currently thinking about starting your own YouTuber career, here are some simple steps for new beginners.
How to Start a YouTube Channel in Kenya
Do you love to watch videos, comedies, or documentaries on the YouTube app? Why not create your own channel!
- Do Research
If you are all set on creating your own youtube channel in Kenya, the very first thing to do is search for other people who already own gaming channels.
You can get these by simply typing “top YouTube channels” into your preferred search engine like google chrome – or even both.
- Make a Plan
Once you’ve got some successful Youtubers in your region of interest, take some time to look over their channels. For instance, what are the most popular videos? What variety of videos do they post? How long are their videos lasting?
- Get your equipment ready.
To begin uploading videos to YouTube, you will need a camera or a smartphone if you don’t have a camera. There are hundreds of choices available, so do some intense research to find the best camera for your needs.
You could further research what kind of computer equipment you’ll need since that is what’s required for registration or editing videos.
- Create your Channel
This is where it all begins – setting up your YouTube channel is a fairly straightforward method but does require some time, so make sure that you’ve got everything ready before continuing.
- Start recording!
Once everything is up, set, and ready to go, it’s time to start uploading those youtube videos! If you have trouble with this step, check out these suggestions from the people at YouTube:
- Promote your Channel
YouTube is a large site, but it won’t stay successful by itself. You’ll want to promote your video content on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
- Be consistent with your uploads.
Lastly, the most crucial part is to be consistent. Your youtube channel viewers want to know when they can expect fresh videos from you, so try to keep up a good and regular schedule for this.
Whether just uploading every Wednesday morning or every Sunday night – make sure that it’s frequent enough for your channel viewers!
How to Start a YouTube Channel in Kenya
The most suitable place to start a YouTube Channel is with the simple basics: setting up your own YouTube Channel, creating a Google Account, and uploading your very first video. You can then go from that step and continue uploading youtube videos to expand your Channel.
Have a Google Account
First, you will require a Google account if you do not already have one. If you do not yet, open up a browser window, google.com, and click the “sign-in” option (top right corner).
If you already have an active Google account, skip ahead to the next section of this article.
Next, on the far left view of your screen, you should see a list of choices along the top; click the “Youtube” option to go to the leading YouTube site.
When you are on the YouTube section, look at the top right-hand corner, and you should notice a black bar with a picture of a cogwheel in it; this is your navigation bar.
Click on the “My Channel” option under it and then click “Dashboard.” You have now landed on your YouTube Channel’s Dashboard.
Create a New Youtube Channel
If you need to create an entirely new channel and give it its separate personal identity, click the button that states “Create a new channel”; if not, log into your existing Google account by clicking on the title of your current YouTube account.
Now that you have reached at the “My Channel” screen look at the top right-hand edge of your screen and then click on the “Edit Channel.”
You will now have entered the Edit Channel screen. Here you can choose to either present your YouTube channel a different name or change the current one, where to add new videos, who can see your uploaded content, how many videos are shown in every row on your Channel’s home page, and other such settings.
It is highly recommended that you start by upload a few videos before choosing to change the name of your YouTube Channel since it is hard to do this later on and maintain your subscribers and viewers who come looking for your previous videos.
Now either click the “Done” or fill in any new information that might be needed and finally click the “Save Channel Settings” at the bottom.
Now that you have completed setting up your YouTube Channel, it is time to upload your very first video! Click on the button appearing in the top right corner of your computer that says “Upload.”
This will bring you to a different screen; choose your file and upload it.
Congratulations! You have now created your YouTube Channel and uploaded your first video.
Now you can start to upload more videos and build your subscriber count by posting frequent content for people who actually enjoy what you post.
