1 How to create a YouTube channel - the starting point

YouTube is now one of the largest networks and the most visited and most used video portal in the world. Every day, thousands and thousands of videos are uploaded to YouTube, just waiting to be viewed by the portal's users. For these reasons, even if you don't want to use YouTube directly as a creator, but rather as a consumer, it can make sense to have your own YouTube channel. We have good news: Creating your own YouTube channel is easier than ever today.

What's more, you can create your YouTube channel completely free of charge. Once you have created your channel, all the doors of the platform are open to you and you can either upload your own videos, start your own livestream or simply rate, comment or add other videos to your personal playlists. In the following chapters and the corresponding step-by-step instructions, we'll show you how to do that and that it's not as complicated as you might think.

Basically, there are two different methods how you can create your own YouTube channel. These two variations depend on whether you already have a Google account or not. If you already have a Google account, creating it will require a few less steps than if you don't have a Google account yet. To avoid any questions, we would like to introduce both processes to you in detail here.
