Channel Naming: Every YouTube account has a unique name, a name that either portrays what the videos are about or a name that represents a brand. A good name also assists in easy search and brings more traffic to your channel.
The next thing you should get ready is a good graphic image for your YouTube profile and cover photo. An ideal size for a good YouTube cover image should be about 2560x1440 and for the Profile photo, 800×800. Once this is set, you can proceed to creating a YouTube channel.

How To Create A YouTube channel

Although you have been watching videos on YouTube for days, months or probably years now, that didn't guarantee that you owned a channel of your own and for that reason, you had no public presence on YouTube. You can only be heard, seen, watched when you have created a channel.

Now you are done with creating a YouTube channel.

How To Monetize your YouTube Channel

Creating a channel is one step and monetizing it is a different step entirely. To monetize your channel, you'll need a thousand subscribers (1000+) and a minimum of 4000 watch hours within the past 12 months before your request will be reviewed and ads attached to your videos. 
To get subscribers on your YouTube channel you can read our article on how to get YouTube subscribers to your channel. Remember you should not set your whole mindset on making money because nothing good comes easily, I'm not saying money's not good but you need to work hard for money to come.
Your video content must be of good quality, contents that would make your viewers stay on their toes for your next update, something new and valuable. Avoid copyrighted videos, try to make yours unique and you will watch the magic spread on your watch hours.
Also make adequate use of your social media accounts, make offline introductions to your friends and colleagues at your place of work. With that, you wouldn't want to let go of your passion.
