How to subscribe to a YouTube Channel!

Good Evening Folks,

I was asked to do this by a couple of people because some of you who watch my videos regularly, may have wanted to subscribe to YouTube but have no idea how to go about doing so.

Woman looking mystified

So therefore I have created a simple ‘how to’ subscribe to channels on YouTube. See guys, you learn something new everyday.

1.) First off you MUST have a g-mail account in order to sign into YouTube. To do this please follow this link in order to register.

2.) Fill in all details required. I don’t think you need to provide you’re telephone number but it’s helpful to provide you’re current e-mail in case you ever forget you’re password etc.


3.) When you click the ‘next step’ button, a pop-up will appear asking you to read through the data protection agreement. Please click the ‘I agree’ button to continue.

4.) You will then get directed to this screen…

Congratulations, you now have an account with google mail!

5.) Congratulations, you now have an account on G-Mail. It’s always good to have a secondary account as I always give my back-up e-mail, when I’m signing up for competitions etc.

6.) Next, is creating you’re own YouTube Channel. DON’T PANIC, you don’t have to create you’re own videos or make a fool out of yourself like I do. This is just so you’re able to subscribe to other YouTube Channels.

7.) Go to the YouTube main page at and click the sign in button at the top right hand corner of the page.


8.) You will recognise a familiar screen, asking you to log into you’re g-mail account. Enter you’re password to successfully log in and become a registered YouTube Channel owner!


9. Now that you’ve registered with YouTube, you are free to subscribe to as many channels as you wish. There are hundreds of thousands out there so have a look around, subscribe to you’re favourite musician if they have a YouTube Channel or you’re favourite online magazine! You could even subscribe to you’re favourite video blogger (cough, cough).

10. If you would like to subscribe to my YouTube channel, then there are two easy options. The first is to simply type in my name in the search bar ‘natalie redman’. Usually I’m at the top of the page. Hover over my name to bring up a pop-up.


11.) Click the ‘subscribe’ button to automatically subscribe. I cannot subscribe to myself unfortunately so you won’t get this ‘No need to subscribe to yourself!’ flash up. 

12.) The other option is to click on my name ‘Natalie Ann’ and simply subscribe on the main page of my channel. Either one is fine to do.


13.) Once you hit the subscribe button, you will become a subscriber to my channel. This is probably the most important thing as a YouTuber as it’s bringing back regular viewers and boosting my profile on YouTube. As a subscriber, you’ll have access and be notified when new videos come up, so you’ll always know when I’ve posted a new video. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I know right you’re practically bursting with excitement.

Thanks for reading this handy little instruction guide on how to subscribe to a YouTube Channel. I fully appreciate everyone who takes the time to subscribe and please let all you’re friends know about my channel and forward this onto them if they don’t know how to subscribe.
