How can I set up a Brand Account?

Go to your Account settings and click on Add or manage your channel(s).

Click on + Create a channel.

Do you already have content on your YT channel that isn't a Brand Account?

No worries. You can switch your YT channel to a brand account. 😊 Just go to the Advanced settings of your YouTube channel and click on Move channel to a brand account.

Choose the account that you want to move to from the list on your screen. If the account you choose is already associated with a YouTube channel, click Replace.

πŸ’‘ Moving your Brand Account to another is a process you can complete yourself, but it should only be done if necessary. You can risk deleting the wrong channel if a transfer is done incorrectly. To avoid this mistake, check that you’re in the Google Account associated with the channel you want to move.
