So if you already have a google account or gmail or email address. If you don't have one first create google account click me
Sign in with the google account that wanna associate with your youtube account, if you don't have one yet,then you click create account below in the bottom left corner as in the image below:

2.Business/ Brand channal
The Personal channal that is the one linked to a personal Google account or your personal gmail account and only you can access or only people who are logging into that exact account with that username and password, are able to manage that youtube channal
The other thing to know with a personal channal, is that the youtube channal name is going to be your own name but the second option you have is to create youtube channal insttead of a personal account but as a brand channaland this is gonna give you access to thing like a custom channal name so it doesn't need to just be your personal name and you can also assing other people, or other Google account as the channal managers on your channal so you don't need to be giving out your personal Google account logo details to any one you wanna have help you out with your channal, you can actually just great them with their login details to access your channal,
So you need to setect either a personal channal or a Brand channal but do note that you switch from a person channal to a brand channal at alate date as a personal account can convert it over to a brand youtube channal later to increase your online earnings with Youtube
But what i would recommend and what i use is a band channal so that we can have multiple people managing the channal so once you're signed in youtube using your google account you can come up to the top right hand corner to your little profile picture
If you don't have a channal yet, this is your first time logging in youtube you can click here to create a youtube channal when you click your profile picture, you will be able to access your account but may be you wanna create a brand new brand youtube channal so that when you have to core down to settings and go to add or manage your channals and here will show all the channals that you already have access to you create a new channal one by hitting the plus butt in the top left corner as shown in image below:

So I recommend to leave it at custom start time, it starts about five seconds in because that's gonna be after any ads or anything showing at the bottom of your videos then across to advanced settings this is something that you will need to speafy whether your channal is aimed at kids content or whether you're creating content that is made for kids or not so you will need to specify that yes, this channal is made for kids we can have kids content on it or this channal is not made for kids now do know that you also have a third option here that you want to reveiw this setting for every video, so you manually set this on per video basis as well so you with this channal is made for kids if you do have a Google Ads Account
You can link Google Ads Account by just clicking a link and if you a cross to basic info this where we're able to add in some keywords or some key tags associated with your channal to gain show YouTube what your channal and your content is about to give it everything it needs to best show your channal and your videos, up in search results and on the youtube platform so it conld be that starting off e=with some obvious ones.
So now that your channalis pretty close to bang setup we can now go through and add in any managers or any other account that you like to have as managers on your channal so to do that go back to your profile picture, head to youtube just to take you back to your youtube dushboard and then click on the profile picture you're gonna get more options so you come down to settings and then you can add and remove managers down in here under channal managers just click add or remove managers
