youtube channel ideas

The beauty of YouTube is that you can make your channel anything you want it to be. Chances are, no matter how wild or unique your idea or passion is, someone else has that same passion. Thinking of YouTube channel ideas can be overwhelming, but when you have a proper brainstorming session, a lot of progress can be made. If you have been struggling to find your next YouTube channel idea, or just want a few more ideas to add to your list, this blog is for you!

Social media continues to keep up with trends as they come and go. YouTube in particular is a place where creators and viewers of all walks of life are accepted and can create and view as much or as little in a single sitting that they desire.

These 10 YouTube channel ideas will help you get the ball rolling on your own channel development.

Channel Ideas

1. Streaming/Gaming

One thing that gamers love is watching other gamers navigate their favorite games. Streaming your own gaming adventures will allow others to tune in for a multitude of reasons. Some use it as a stress reliever because the game itself brings them joy, but by watching someone else play rather than themselves, they do not necessarily have to engage their brain in typical ways. They may want to tune into your stream for learning purposes on a particular game. Your strategies could help them pass a certain level, or see new ways of being successful in a game that had otherwise become stagnant for them. There are tons of different reasons that gamers, and non-gamers alike, enjoy watching a gamer’s stream.

2. Unboxing/Reviewing

Unboxing videos have been popular for years on YouTube. But more recently they have made their way onto other social media platforms, notably TikTok. It gained popularity in such a way that it’s made a full circle back to YouTube. So creators make longer videos and put their entire “haul” into one video. Then, they use it as long as needed to review it. Viewers will tune in to all kinds of unboxing videos, from clothing and makeup hauls to furniture that they put together on camera, to PR packages, and the list goes on.

3. Makeup Tutorials

Creators like Jeffree Star, Nikkie Tutorials, James Charles, and others made make-up tutorials not only popular but accessible. Before creators began making videos, viewers were forced to go out and have someone at a beauty counter in the mall or department store show them how to put their makeup on. While that is still very much an option, having it all in the palm of your hand on YouTube made it that much easier to try new things and become more comfortable and confident with your makeup.

4. Singing/original or covers

If singing is something you are passionate about, the greatest thing you can do for yourself is get your name into the hands of as many people as possible. The best way to do that today is through social media of all kinds. YouTube is the backbone of content creation. You can put snippets of your work onto Instagram and Twitter. But linking your full videos on YouTube will create a high traffic volume on all your accounts. Creating cover or original song videos for your viewers is a tried and true method of getting noticed by big names.

5. Fitness

For many YouTube viewers, knowing where to begin in the gym, and at home, with fitness is the hardest part. It is hard enough trying something new, but not being confident in the new activity you are doing is a whole other scenario. As someone who is confident in their own fitness journey, you could potentially be that stepping stone for someone who is just getting started. On the flip side, you may be able to create videos at all levels. For instance, you can help people who feel they have plateaued in their fitness journey.


The options are quite literally endless when it comes to content and video ideas for your YouTube channel. This list is only the beginning. Now, you have the tools to be successful and start your brainstorming process to create your new videos.
