How to delete multiple YouTube channels

Sometimes things go wrong. Maybe you overestimated the popularity of a channel idea. The channel maybe no longer aligns with brand goals.

No matter the case, you’re going to have to delete the YouTube channel.

Luckily doing so is a cinch and mostly painless.

(I say mostly because it’s your hard work you’re deleting after all!)

Just follow these instructions:

Step 1: Go to your channel settings by clicking on your profile icon in the top right of the YouTube homepage. Click Settings.

Step 2: On the right sidebar, click on Advanced settings.

Step 3: In the Advanced settings window, click on Delete channel below.

This will give you the opportunity to either hide your content or permanently delete your content. Hiding your content will hide all content from your YouTube channel temporarily. This means things like your videos, likes, subscribes, and channel name will be made private. Plus all comments will be deleted permanently.

Permanently deleting your content will delete all of the content in the channel plus the channel itself forever. So make sure it’s what you want to do.

Once you select permanently delete click on delete my content.

And that’s it!

Tips for managing multiple YouTube channels

To create an engaging and helpful YouTube channel that your audience loves, you’ll need the right tactics.

Below are some ways you can create an amazing YouTube channel.

1. Have a solid visual identity

Quick: What are the brand colors for Coca-Cola? What’s the logo for McDonald’s? Or Nike?

Chances are you know the answer to all these questions. That’s because all these brands have a strong visual identity.

Much like your brand, your YouTube channel should have a strong unique visual identity as well. This helps your channel look polished, and allows you to create your brand awareness.

Make sure to add a channel icon that represents your brand such as a logo. You’ll also need a great banner image as well.

Just make sure that you stay in line with YouTube’s image dimensions to avoid your photo looking weirdly cropped or stretched.

2. Write a good channel description

Your channel description tells new and potential subscribers exactly who you are. So it’s important that you give them the necessary information that’ll make them want to hit that subscribe button.

Front-load crucial bits of information first, and make sure to include the relevant keywords to make your YouTube channel more searchable.

3. Post on a consistent schedule

Your audience craves content. Not only that, but they also crave knowing when the content will come out.

The consistency helps your audience know when to come back for more. So it’s very necessary that you create and keep to a good content publishing schedule.

Plan to publish at the same time each day, week, or month…

TubeBuddy is a free and effective browser extension that performs a boatload of handy tasks like:
