Friends, I can go ahead on step 2 just by telling this but when we start a YouTube channel sometimes we don’t have any idea what kind of videos we should make and in which category we should make our initial videos. For example, I don’t know which kind of video I should make and I don’t have passion and I am lazy too. So in this case I will recommend some categories-
Story Videos For Kids
Real Crime Cases
K Drama and many others. They are some ideas.

STEP 5 MISTAKES THAT NEW YOUTUBERS MAKE (How To Create YouTube Channel)
Embarking on a YouTube journey is an exciting venture. However, new YouTubers often stumble upon several common pitfalls. Here are eight of them and how to avoid them:
1. Entitlement to Views and Subscribers Many new YouTubers fall into the trap of feeling entitled to views and subscribers. It’s essential to remember that building an audience takes time and effort. Don’t get disheartened if your subscriber count doesn’t skyrocket overnight. Patience and persistence are key.
2. Deleting Content Deleting a video erases all its views and watch time. Instead of removing content, learn from it. Your growth as a creator can be a compelling narrative for your audience.
3. Neglecting Audio Quality Audio quality is as important as video quality. Poor audio can deter viewers, so invest in a good microphone and learn basic audio editing skills.
4. Inconsistent Uploads Consistency is crucial on YouTube. Channels that don’t upload regularly may struggle to retain and grow their audience. Create a content schedule and stick to it.
5. Prioritizing Quantity Over Quality While it’s important to upload regularly, don’t sacrifice quality for quantity. High-quality content can lead to increased watch time, which is crucial for monetization.
6. Not Investing in Quality Equipment While starting with basic equipment is fine, investing in high-quality equipment can significantly improve your videos’ production value. A good camera and lighting can make a big difference.
7. Ignoring SEO Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is crucial for reaching your target audience. Learn how to use keywords in your title, description, and tags to improve your video’s visibility.
8. Failing to Engage with the Audience YouTube is a two-way communication channel. Engage with your audience by responding to comments and asking for feedback. This interaction helps build a community around your channel.
Remember, everyone makes mistakes when they’re starting. The key is to learn from these mistakes and keep improving. Good luck on your YouTube journey!
