  1. Go to YouTube and sign in  
  1. Click on the video icon at the top righthand corner of the page, which can be found next to your user icon, messages, apps, and notifications.  
  1. Click ‘Upload Video.’  
  1. Then, press ‘select files to upload’. Or, you can drag and drop it into the window.  
  1. Add an SEO-friendly title so that it’s more easily discoverable via search engines. This title should be engaging yet succinct and help the viewer understand what they should expect from the video. Avoid giving overly vague, click-bait type titles, such “You’ll never believe what happened in this video!”
  1. Add a description of the video. You can list the speakers, the topics of conversation, what kind of questions you’ll be giving answers to, etc.  
  1. Add tags, which act as tools to help people find your video. These are words that give an idea about the content of your video, such “dogs” or “accounting” or “DIY”, etc.
