How to create a YouTube account with an existing Google account

If you’ve set up a Google+ page or Gmail address for your business, then you already have a Google account that you can use to create your YouTube account. You can also use your personal Google account to create a YouTube account for your business. (Don’t worry—the association between the two can remain private. Check out this explanation from YouTube for more information.)

These are the steps that you’ll follow whether you have an existing Google account for your business or are using a personal Google account.

1. Go to youtube.com.

2. Sign in with the email address attached to your existing Google account.

3. Click on your profile icon in the top right corner.

4. Click on the wheel icon beside “Creator Studio.”
