With one billion hours of video watched daily on YouTube, it’s a place with vast opportunity – whether you’re an independent creator who wants to take viewers inside your kitchen to show-off your favorite recipes or a brand who wants to engage with its customers through educational tutorials and how-to’s.

Starting a channel can be intimidating, it’s easy to get caught up on making sure everything is just perfect. Remember – done is better than perfect. Your video editing skills will improve over time, your content will evolve as you get to know your audience and viewers will come as you continue to make consistent content.

One thing to consider at the beginning stages of your YouTube channel is your channel art. This is the banner that appears on the top of your channel when someone first lands on your channel – it’s really the first impression. When designing your channel art, consider that the banner will look slightly different depending on the device. You wouldn’t want your face to be cut off on mobile view! filmora.io has created a Channel Art Cheat Sheet with the dimensions for each device and handy tips to remember when designing.
