How to start a family YouTube channel.

Get your family’s YouTube channel launched in no time by following these simple tips.

Creating a family YouTube channel can bring you and your loved ones closer — your whole family can also share important traditions, rituals, and hobbies with interested viewers.

First, you’ll need to decide on a format and shoot a few hours of footage to get a feel for how your family interacts on camera. Next, you’ll shoot for real and edit your work to create a YouTube-ready video series. Don’t forget to create a free YouTube account and channel beforehand to host your family’s videos.

Choose a video format that works for your family.

If you watch enough movies, TV, or other family channels on YouTube, you’ll notice that nearly every video has its own format. Think about what your family enjoys doing together and why it’s exciting, interesting, or entertaining. Then consider how to tell your family’s story in an easy-to-follow style. Some format examples include:

For example, if your family cooks together, you might consider a how-to format that features family recipes. Alternatively, if your family regularly travels together, an adventure vlog formula may make more sense.

Edit your videos for quality and consistency.

Once you’ve chosen a format that works for your family, it’s important to stick to it. With the help of a quality video editing tool, you can craft attention-grabbing videos that showcase your family’s passions or hobbies, as well as their unique personalities.

With consistent video editing, you can create great standalone videos that also work well as a collection. Give these video editing techniques a try:

Try to keep your video edits consistent across each final cut, so that it’s easier for viewers to follow along.

Keep your videos on brand.

You’ll also find that it gets easier to shoot, edit, and publish your family videos once you’ve nailed down a consistent style. Explore what more you can do with Adobe Premiere Pro to take your family YouTube channel to the next level.
