Create Youtube channels with style

Updated on May 11, 2011

Youtube Create Account

Hi Guys, I have recently been busy creating a Youtube channel to promote my ideas on, I finally got the page looking the way I wanted today and that was important if I am going to capture as many users attention as possible.

In this hub I am going to explain how to create Youtube video channels that can compete with those 'glitzy' Youtube partners pages. It is not just the background and video content that will keep viewers attention, you also want to secure their belief in your product or message by giving them proof that you have outside recognition, for example, you have a personal domain or show photos of your achievements with affiliate programs.

It is also a good idea to have a theme that keeps users wondering what is next in the series, I have been called 'Richie Rich' by friends so I decided to use a Macaulay Culkin one by using logos from his film based on the Harvey comic book character. I also threw in the catchphrase 'Home Alone? Make money on your PC', I then did a pose similar to the famous shocked look on the Home Alone film posters.

Create Youtube Channel

When you create a Youtube background, you want to make sure your images and logo are displayed properly and don't get hidden behind the grey channel button, video player and tool bar. Youtube partners don't have to worry about this because the are provided with space for a page header and are given other options for inserting photos.

You want to avoid any images clashing with the text in your 'interests' description and you may want to create a Youtube background image in Adobe photoshop ensuring that the contrast isn't too light that your description text can't be seen.

Above is an example of the background I used when I came to create a Youtube account. There are other ways to spice up your page as I have found out through browsing the Youtube community, for example you can add imagery like the ones below created with keyboard symbols in your description box.

Gain more subscribers = more traffic

If you are just starting out and wish to gain more subscribers on Youtube I suggest asking friends that you already know from forums if they have a channel, this way you will more than likely receive a subscriber in response to you subscribing to them.

Better still, when I was surfing the Youtube community I noticed a lot of people have set up channels specifically for exchanging subscriptions with each other, simply go to the search bar and type 'Sub4Sub' and you will be able to follow these people!
