List out the 4-5 points that you'll cover in the 5 minute video. These points will be a cheat sheet for others to apply what you show them. For >5 points, find logical places to split the content into multiple videos.

Eg. I’m an expert xyz and one of the most common questions I get asked is “How can I get better results from abc process?"
2 - 4 To illustrate your points, use relatable examples, mention any common mistakes, and then show the right way of doing it.
Eg. "Create a new entry by clicking on the New icon"
Eg. "If I want to show my client the competitor data for any product, I can use the market feature."
Eg. "Instead of manually calculating the difference, use the analyse trends button to track performance changes."
5. Conclude with a call-to-action!
Eg. "Use these quick tips to see your viewership rise rapidly."
Eg. "Now that you know how to create your own entry, why don't you try one for yourself now!"
