Get Names That’ll Make You Money on Youtube
There are many articles online about how to make money on Youtube.
One thing for sure, it’s not as easy as it seems.
And to do well you need to become an influencer and push products and services you believe in. But first, you need to draw people in and make them feel that they can trust you.
You, therefore, need a great persona, and a great name…
Generating Youtube Names is fun but gets more serious if you need your name to perform well on Youtube. Unless you want a completely random name it’s important you don’t jump in with both feet. Youtubers don’t react well to names with numbers or weird characters in them. Inferior names tend to be less memorable and dilute your persona. Here are some rules to help you choose a Youtube name…
Make it About You
Remember people follow people not channels and your name is integral to your persona. So it’s important it matches who you are or who you’re trying to be.
But, if you’re a business or brand you may want a close match name. Generally, name availability isn’t a problem for established brands on Youtube. But it might be an issue if you’re a new business or you’ve just bought a domain name.
Think About Your Audience
Match your name to your audience needs…
For example, if you’re going to run a channel devoted to Comedy try for something funny, like “FUNnel Vision”, “PewDiePie” and “Smosh”.
Similarly, if you’re focused on Beauty or How to videos your name should seem trustworthy. Popular examples include ”Howcast”, “BibisBeautyPalace” and “HowToBasic”.
Whereas a gaming channel name could include words that appeal to gamers. See users like “VanossGaming”, “jacksepticeye”, or “AuthenticGames”.
You shouldn’t copy the names of others, no one responds to copies. But it’s great to understand who your competitors are. So why not check out Social Blade to see the name types of your competitors sorted by topic.
Make it Shorter
Generally speaking the shorter and simpler your name the better. Short and simple names are generally more impactful, easier to read, type and pass on.
Make it Catchy and Memorable
The best names are catchy and memorable. You can use techniques like alliteration, comedy, and rhyme to come up with names that people have to follow. Here are some great examples:
HINT: As you can see some of the most memorable names are alliterative, that is to say, the same sound is repeated see MightyCarMods and SparkleSpice. Within the Smart and Random Username Generators, use “Enter Starting Letter” to get alliterative names.
Use Your Words
Youtube will display your name in capitals provided you enter them when you create your account. This can work to your advantage allowing you to make your name more impactful and easier to read.
Good examples include: “FUNnel Vision” which is much better than “funnel vision”.
And “PewDiePie” which is preferable to “pewdiepie”.
And despite its popularity, it seems to me that “jacksepticeye” would be better shown as “JackSepticEye”.
Add YouTube Word Hacks
Got a name that’s perfect but still no joy? You can add keywords used by popular Youtubers to get a near match name alternative. This is because I have spent time researching the names of top users and learning what works for them.
HINT: You can generate name ideas ideal for Youtube in many ways. Within the “Real Username Fixer” check out the “Find Names Ideal For” field and select “Youtube”. Within the Smart and Random Username Generators, select the “Good 4 Youtube” topic within the Prefix and Suffix dropdowns.
Check Youtube Name Availability
