Wondering how to upload videos on YouTube? In this YouTube 101 tutorial, I'll be sharing how to start a YouTube channel by posting your first YouTube video.
By the end of this video, you'll know exactly how to upload videos on your YouTube channel so that you can properly upload videos to YouTube to get more views and likes. If you're excited about this video, make sure you like this video, hit the subscribe button and the bell to be notified every time I post a new video, and with that said let's jump right in.
To upload a video on YouTube, head over to your YouTube account, click on the 'create' camera icon from the menu on the top, right-hand side, and then on 'upload video'. Either drag and drop video files to upload to YouTube in the space provided, or select a video file or files from your documents.
Make sure that this video file you're uploading to YouTube is your already edited video file. If you don't know how to edit video files, make sure to watch my video on 'how to edit videos on iMovie'. The link to it is in the description box below.
Once you've selected a video file to upload to YouTube, you'll see its uploading and processing status at the bottom. In this 'details' section, you can edit your YouTube video's title, description, thumbnail, playlists and select under 'audiences' whether this video is intended for kids or not.
If you don't know how to create a YouTube thumbnail that converts, make sure to watch my video on 'how to make a YouTube custom thumbnail'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.
You can also click on 'more options' to add a paid promotion banner, tags, language, subtitles, and closed captions, recording date and location, license and distribution, category, as well as comments and ratings. To properly tag your YouTube videos so that you get more clicks and views, make sure to watch my video on 'how to tag YouTube videos to rank higher'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.
Once you're done filling out the 'details' section, click on 'next' to access the 'monetization' section. In order to be monetized on YouTube, you need at least 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time in the past 12 months. For more details on how to make money on YouTube, make sure to watch my video on 'how to make money on YouTube with a small channel'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.
If your YouTube channel has been monetized, select whether you wish monetization to be on or off for this video, select the type of ads that your viewers will see, as well as the location of those video ads. Only videos longer than 8 minutes are eligible for ads during video.
Once you're done filling out the 'monetization' section, click on 'next' to access the 'ad suitability' section. Select whether your YouTube video's content, title, description, or keywords contain any of the following: inappropriate language, adult content, violence, shocking content, harmful or dangerous acts, drug-related content, hateful content, firearms-related content, sensitive issues or none of the above.
Once you're done filling out the 'ad suitability' section, click on 'next' to access the 'video elements' section, and then on 'add' next to each option to add an end screen and cards. If you want to add an end screen template to your YouTube video to add an end screen with ease, make sure to watch my video on 'how to create a YouTube end screen template + add end screens to YouTube videos'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.
Once you're done filling out the 'video elements' section, click on 'next' to access the 'visibility' section. This is where you can save your video as private, where only you and people you choose can watch your video or as unlisted, where anyone with the video link can watch your video, publish your video as public so that everyone can watch your video, or schedule your YouTube video for a later date and time.
Once you're done filling out the 'visibility' section, click on 'save' to successfully post your first Youtube video. If you want even more tips on how to create and grow a successful YouTube channel, make sure to watch my video on 'how to grow your YouTube channel: 10 secrets to grow on YouTube with 0 views and 0 subscribers'.
