Opening/Creating NEW Online Accounts



STUDENTS, READ THROUGH THIS!


Account 1: GMAIL www.gmail.com


Before you begin building your online business, it’s a good idea to open up a new email account. Keep your business separate from your personal email accounts.


Students under 13 years old will need their parents to create an email account for them using GOOGLE FAMILY LINK: https://familylink.google.com/ Students if you can, contact your parents to create a new email address on Family Link.........OR..... Parents can create and then share the new email address with the student. Students if you can, contact your parents now to get your new email address (IF UNDER 13 years old). You will need this email address to create a number of new online accounts.


When we were deciding on a good name for our website www.cloveandlime.com, we created a GOOGLE account with cloveandlime@gmail.com. If the name you prefer is already taken, consider a variation of the name.


Google Docs - Google Drive - Document Creator


After you set up a Gmail account, click the small white boxes on the top right of the screen (looks like a calculator) and open up google drive. In Google Drive, you can create word-processing documents in Google Docs. It’s a fully functional program like Microsoft Office, and you’ll have access to word processing, spreadsheets, a drawing program, and even a presentation program.


I always use Google Docs because it allows me to work on my documents on any computer, anywhere in the world. It also allows me to share my documents with my editors. Use Google Docs to write and edit all of your content. You can create different docs for all of your different ideas! Google saves your content every few seconds, so you’ll never lose it!


Account Ids and Passwords


Set up a secure document to store your Ids and Passwords. Different websites will have other character requirements for IDs and Passwords and will be very difficult to remember. If you are not comfortable saving your IDs and Passwords on Google Docs, save them somewhere. You’ll thank me for this in the future. Remember to update each time the password changes.


Account 2: Youtube Account


Have you created any Youtube videos? If you have, it was most likely on your personal Gmail account. You’ll want to create a new YOUTUBE channel specifically for your business using your new Gmail account. You can either access it by going to www.youtube.com or accessing it through your new GMAIL account. Look at the top right for the tiny white boxes that look like a calculator and click in there. If you start creating videos, you’ll upload those to your new account.



 


SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS: Parents will need to help open up any manage social media accounts for anyone under 13. Using social media is optional.


Account 3: Facebook Account


If you have a Facebook account. You won’t need to create another profile. Just create a new Facebook Page (& Use your new business name).



Account 4: Instagram Account

I don’t need to tell you how popular Instagram is. If you already have an Instagram account, you can create a new business page in the app. Click on your setting and “add” a new account. At that point, it will ask if you want to create a new account! If you don’t have an account, download the app and create your new account.



 


Creating New GOOGLE ACCOUNTS: Students UNDER 13 will need to ask parents first before creating an email account.


If you are able to, let's create a new email address that matches your business name or niche.



BEFORE YOU CONTINUE....DO YOU HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS??

This will be necessary to start building a website.

Creating Accounts - Online Accounts & Social Media Platforms


This is exciting! It’s time to start opening your first few accounts. You should follow the recommended steps, whether you are strictly starting an online business or starting an offline service business. It’s essential to make a distinction between your personal accounts and your new business.


We recommend creating the following accounts, however, students can use any other social media app that they choose using their new business name. At the end of Session 6, please create these accounts and any other social media accounts you may also like to use (TikTok, Twitter, Pinterest, Rumble, Snapchat, Etc). Students under 13 will not be able to create a social media account and can ask their parents to help. Anyone under the age of 18 should not create a social media account without parents’ permission or acknowledgment.
