The Second Step: Decide The Name of Your Channel
It seems an easy step. But trust me, if you are not creative enough it can take a lot of effort.
And again it worth it.
For a perfect YouTube channel, a perfect name is a must.
If it takes a lot of time, don't worry about it, but don't choose a name that isn't good enough.
Now you might be thinking, Hey Bishnu, that's good but How would I know if a name is good enough?
Well, there's not a specific answer for that but here are some things that you must consider while choosing the name:
- Keep it short and simple
- The name should be memorable
- Avoid confusing spells
- Do not mix numbers with the name unless it is so important
- Make it Unique (I know it's very tough nowadays but you have to try)
- Check Username Availability on Social Networks (Optional but Important)
