Step One: Create Your Account!
If you haven't already created an account on YouTube, do so immediately! There's no clever technique to signing up -- simply click on the link and follow the wizard, inputting your information. (It will prompt you to create a Google account too, if you don’t already have one.)
Later on, you can customize your channel with your own colors and graphics, but for now, the important thing is to get started!
Before you ever make your first video, however, it's important to have some idea of how best to use this powerful social sharing platform.
