How to customize your YouTube channel

After you have taken the previous steps, we advise you to move to customizing the channel, to increase its beauty, and to arouse the curiosity of others to subscribe to it. There are some necessary steps for the channel to be archived well and to take on a decent look, and here is how you can do it.

How to customize your YouTube channel

Customize Channel

Basic Info

Go to the “Basic Info” section so that we can customize the channel well, and here you will find three options.

  • Add a channel description 

Provide viewers with information about what your videos are about. The description can appear in search results and elsewhere. Try to be very accurate in the description and use all keywords and semantics that explain well the content that you will present, as the “YouTube” platform allows you 1000 characters to describe the channel.

Note: The image must be at least 98 x 98 pixels in size and be 4MB or less. The file must be in PNG or GIF format (without animation moves).

  • Add links and social media

The YouTube platform allows you to add some external links, including a link to your website (if it exists) and your accounts on various social media (Facebook, Twitter and Telegram). We strongly recommend adding all links if available. You can also skip this step and add links at a later time.

Go to the “Branding” section so that we can customize the channel well, and here you will find three options.
  • Profile picture. your profile picture appears next to your videos, comments, and in other places. It is a picture that represents you on the “YouTube” platform. All you have to do is click on the “upload picture” option and choose the appropriate picture.
  • Banner image (channel cover). This image will appear at the top of your channel pages (for best results on all devices, you must use an image that is at least 2048 x 1152 pixels in size and 6MB or less).
  • Watermark. The watermark will appear on your videos in the lower-right corner of the video player (It is recommended to use an image of 150 x 150 pixels. The file must be in PNG, GIF (no animation), BMP, or JPEG format and is 1MB or less).

After you have completed the previous last step and clicked on “PUBLISH”.

Upload your first video to YouTube

After you have finished customizing the channel and adding the logo, description, watermark, etc., now you can add the first video on your YouTube channel.

To do this, you have to click on the “Create” button in the upper left corner and then select “Upload Video”. 

How to upload your first video to YouTube

Then choose the video file from the computer or drag it to the place designated for it, and after completing the download, you must pass 3 steps:

Step #1: The Details

  • Choose an appropriate title for the video. Try to make the title attractive and interesting to the user and not to exceed 100 characters.
  • The description. The description should be sufficient and adequate, but at the same time it should not fully reveal the content of the video, and try to add keywords related to the content of the video, and this would rank well in the search.
  • Thumbnail. This image may not be part of the video, but rather expresses it and its purpose is to interest the viewer and force him to click to watch your video.
  • Playlists. Since this is your first video, here you have no playlists, so you can skip this step.
  • Is the video intended for children or not? Here you must tell the YouTube platform that the video that you will publish is intended for children or not, which is required, and you must specify that.

After filling in the above, you should click on the “Next” option to move to the next stage.

Step #2: Video Elements 

At this stage, the video can be provided with some additions, including:

  • Add an end screen. That is, at the end of the video, videos will be shown that you select to promote (and here it is good to choose videos from the same section and be related to the main video).
  • Add cards. It is text that appears at a time you specify with a link to a video. For example, you were talking about promoting on Instagram, and you had another video talking about creating an Instagram account, inside the video you can refer to that with a link to the video.

Now that this stage is completed, you must move on to the third and final stage of adding the video.

Step #3: Display Level

Here you will see a number of options about the possibility of publishing the video:

  • Private. Only you and the users you choose can watch the video.
  • Unlisted. The video can be viewed by any user who has a link to it.
  • Public. Everyone can watch the video (which is recommended if you want people to watch your videos).

Or you can set a date for the video to be published by selecting “Set a date for viewing”, where you must choose the date and time for the video to be scheduled and published at the time that you specify.
And here we have passed all stages of adding a video, and all you have to do now is click on “Save”, and the video will be published and made available to everyone, and you can share it with your friends.

naturally! In the event that you violate the terms of use and the YouTube policy, the channel will be banned, so it is better to print out the terms of use and what types of videos are prohibited before you start posting videos.

Is it allowed to add videos that I do not have rights to?

It is better not to add any videos to which you do not have rights, as this is a violation of the rights of others, and therefore can lead to the ban of the channel.


The YouTube platform is the first in the world in the field of visual content (video), which allows its users not only to attract potential customers for commercial purposes, but also to earn money by adding content.

When you decide to create a YouTube channel, you must determine the main goals and develop a promotional plan and a work plan that includes the amount of videos that you will publish and the idea of each video.

For example, if the goal of the channel is to attract visitors to the website, it is better to create short videos that briefly talk about an idea, and tell the viewer that the full details are in the website.

And here we have finished creating a YouTube channel and adding the first video to it. If you encounter any difficulty with that, you can send a message, and I will help you.
