YouTube Live – What To Do First
YouTube Live is becoming the go-to platform for getting online marketers and anyone wanting to get their message out. Just like creating YouTube videos, it is easy and almost anyone can do it for any audience. Going Live is a little more complicated, but with the right instructions, you can do it. It’s important that you do, because live video is becoming super important for anyone who wants to build a strong business online.
The first thing you must do in order to go live on your YouTube Account is to set up a YouTube Channel.
Set Up Your YouTube Account
When you set up your YouTube account, you want to think about the handle you’ll use. It’s important to think in terms of your audience and how they’ll find you. For example, if your channel is about Learning Algebra, then you need to have the word “Algebra” someplace in your handle to help people find you.
It’s fast to set up your YouTube channel if you have a Gmail Account, but you don’t need one. In fact, everyone with a Gmail Account technically already has a YouTube channel for viewing shows. Just go to YouTube and you’ll probably see your image from Gmail in the upper right.
You can also create a personal or a brand account by going to the Channel Switcher and adding a new channel. This is a good thing to do if you’re going live for Business to have a branded business account. Don’t worry, it’s free.
From there you can create your account. Once you have an account you’re ready to start with your live events. Once you have an account, go to your Creator Studio, which can be found in two spots once you are signed into YouTube.
