If you are thinking of starting a YouTube channel, you came to the right place. You may know the basics—like creating a YouTube account—but there are many other details, from the look of the channel to including the perfect royalty-free music on your videos, that you need to know before uploading your first video.
Where to start?
Once you have created your business account on YouTube, you will have to complete your profile—and this involves way more than your name. Just like any other social media, YouTube has its own aesthetic, so you will need to design an eye-catchy page header, a logo, and of course a memorable name for the channel—all while maintaining a cohesive style.
So how to find the right aesthetics for you? It’s all about knowing your audience, which leads us to the next question: what type of content should you publish? And the answer again is: you have to know what your audience likes. Just like in any other business, creating successful YouTube content is a balance between sharing topics you like and listening to what people want to hear about (aka what gives you more views). So before you start posting we recommend you do a list of themes and topics for your channel and then start thinking about how diverse it could be and, most importantly, if there is an audience to it. Once you do that, try to investigate as much as you can about them, in order to create content that they will be drawn to click on.
Now that you have your list of topics, it’s time to select a theme for your first video. Be sure to make a striking entrance, so whatever you choose to talk about, make it entertaining! Here is where editing plays a huge part and music will be your ally. You will want to engage your audience, so they can watch the video for as long as possible, and let’s admit it: a video without music can be quite boring (doesn’t that apply to most things though?). From the intro—something you will want to make consistent throughout your videos—to the background, music will help you set the tone. Oh, and don’t forget to make it royalty-free!

Upload your first video
Ok, back to YouTube, now it is time to upload your first video. Drum rolls please. YouTube will guide you pretty easily through this process in which you will have to add basic info such as a title, a description and a miniature image (you should design that too to make it appealing). Keep in mind that YouTube, a Google-owned company, works as a search engine, so be sure to add keywords that can help you rank higher.
Some people think that you need to be a genius or have a natural talent to be a successful YouTuber. But the truth is, there are many ways to become successful on YouTube. All it takes is hard work and consistency. The most important thing is to upload videos frequently, and don’t get demotivated when you don’t get results right away.
There are many examples of people who started with nothing and became YouTube stars over time, which proves the point that with hard work and consistency, anyone can become a successful YouTuber. Planning, recording and interacting with your audience will take time, but little by little you will grow your subscribers and your ranking. So keep calm, we got you covered on the music side, you just concentrate on the rest.
How to choose the right music for your videos?
Music is our specialty, so we can give you a hand with that. For starters, music is an essential part of any video. It sets the tone, makes it entertaining, and doesn’t distract from the message. A good music choice can make or break a video.
Music can be used to make a video more emotional or to make it seem more dramatic. It can also be used to set the mood for a certain scene or topic in the video. The right music can help your video stand out from the rest and leave a lasting impression on your viewers. Also consider using sound effects, since it shows how much attention to detail you put to your work.
We want to make sure that your video is a success. To do so, we need to make sure that you select the perfect music. There are a few questions you should ask yourself: What message are you trying to convey in your video? What type of mood should the music set? What’s the role of the music in your video?
