Creating Your YouTube Channel

Lesson 9

Key Takeaways

  • Use to see whether your brand name is already in use on YouTube, other social media platforms and available as a dot com domain.
  • I recommend using to create a profile image for your channel.
  •  And to create a banner logo.
  • Be sure to verify your account so that you can upload videos longer than 15 minutes and add custom thumbnails.

Important Point

  • Even if you don't intend to create an accompanying website, you should purchase your brand's domain name. Domain names are the most important brand identifier on the internet, and owning your domain name prevents it from being bought by someone else.
  • I use WPX for purchasing Domain Names and Website Hosting.


  • Create your YouTube Channel.
