1. Prep what you'll say

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.

1. Quickly introduce the topic (or yourself) by asking a question or establishing your credentials
Eg.“Have you ever struggled with abc, Have you heard of xyz tool/ product but wondered how to apply it?"
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!"

Preparing your script

2. Record your video

- Choose a quiet room/ quiet time of day.
- Turn off fan / AC and other noisy appliances.
- Put your phone on airplane mode.
- Select a comfortable and professional outfit in solid, muted colours
- Stand or sit against a plain wall (at a slight distance to reduce shadow)
- Speak with enthusiasm and energy, as if you are explaining the concept to a friend
- Do a test recording - check that your volume is loud enough, your pace is not too fast and not too slow and that you are pronouncing each word clearly
- Record in sections rather than all at one go
- Record at least 2 versions of each section for safety.‍
