(Last Updated On: July 27, 2019)


YouTube has become one of the best sources of exposure and branding these days. But often when starting out people don’t know how to start.

In this post, I will discuss some highly profitable YouTube channel ideas for beginners to start their YouTube journey and making more money.

But before going to the list I think it would be great to provide you with some best niche for your YouTube channel which will help you in the long run.

 Best YouTube Channel Ideas For Beginners

First of all, it is good to know that making money on YouTube is not as easy as it looks like.

You need a lot of dedication and hard work to make a name of yourself.YouTube has also made some recent changes for monetization. This even makes YouTube monetization a lot harder than it was earlier. YouTube Channels will need 4,000 hours of annual viewing time and over 1,000 subscribers to be able to apply for monetization. So making money on YouTube is possible but it has become a more serious task these days.

So be prepared for it. But don’t panic. If you choose the right niche, maintain the consistency then you can surpass these numbers without much difficulty.

A bit of advice! To start a successful YouTube channel you need to choose the right idea for your channel. Because as a beginner it is always to harder to get the initial boost.No matter which topic you choose you to need to be patient. There are already big YouTube creators out there. So you have to compete with them to be successful!

Also, you have to do your basic YouTube SEO right before publishing any of your videos. Keep your keywords right(Use it in your Title), make a meaningful video description and tag your video right.

I highly recommend TubeBuddy for your YouTube SEO. It provides you all the necessary tools and information required for your YouTube Videos to rank higher to get a lot more visibility!
