Everyday hundreds, if not thousands, of videos are uploaded to YouTube. It can be a tough channel to break into. However, it can be an invaluable tool for businesses to gain exposure. As a marketing agency Surrey, we will guide you through everything you need to know to set up a successful YouTube Channel. 

The Basics 

First things first, your channel needs to be created. To do this, sign into YouTube and click the user icon on the top of the screen. Then click on the gear icon to get to your account settings. Click on “create a new channel” and set up a name for your channel. This can be your business name or anything relevant to your content. Then simply just click “create” to finalise these steps. 

If You Do Not Already Have a Google Account 

If you do not already have an existing Google account, one will need to be created before you can get started on the platform. All you need to do is head to YouTube and click “sign in”. From here, you can choose the option to “create a Google account”. Then you can follow the previous steps we have provided above to set up your account. 

Plan Your Content 

Now your account is set up and ready to go, you will need to plan some content. In order to get more views and followers for your channel, you will need to ensure that your content is interesting and engaging. 

Usually, YouTube channels will stick to a theme for their content. For example, you might choose to make content around fashion or travel. 

Do not worry if you are struggling to find ideas for fresh content. Even the most established YouTubers will run into this problem from time to time. To overcome this, look for inspiration elsewhere. List down any ideas you see from other channels. There is no shame in taking inspiration from other people’s content. The trick is to make their idea your own with a different spin or take on the subject matter. 


As a leading marketing agency Surrey, we believe that YouTube can be an immensely useful tool for businesses. It allows you to get your audience to engage with your brand in a unique and visual way that can be more exciting than just a standard blog. We hope you found this guide useful and we wish you the best of luck in your YouTube content creator journey!
