How to Add Social Media Icons to YouTube Channel?

YouTube is a video-streaming service that is used all over the world. It used to be a distinct website or program, but it was subsequently purchased by Google, and it has evolved significantly since then. It is the only video streaming application available worldwide, and millions of people use it.

YouTube’s algorithm is based on video views and subscribers. It’s a fantastic way to make money. You just have to gain maximum YouTube views in order to start monetization. YouTube pays via Google AdSense, which generates income by displaying adverts on the video. There’s also the possibility of brand sponsorships. If you highlight brands on your channel, they may sell you their items in exchange for money.

Becoming a Creator on YouTube

Becoming a content creator on YouTube is as simple as just creating your channel with your name and then starting to upload videos. Making your channel grow and being consistent about it is what makes the whole thing challenging. 

You can become popular on YouTube by uploading videos of your genre and constantly uploading them. Meanwhile, you can collaborate with other YouTubers and hence gain subscribers on YouTube. Moreover, you can share shout-outs with people as well. Some people go so far to increase their subscribers that they do it inorganically by buying the followers, views, and likes.

An efficient way to promote yourself on YouTube is to add you to other social media such as Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat, etc.
