Getting started with 5 Minute Guide was created to help make information freely available to those who are searching for it, and to help you generate more traffic and subscribers for your channel. Here’s a quick guide on how to get started.


Click “sign in” at the top of the page, click on the “Register” option, then fill out the form and hit submit. In a couple of minutes you should get a confirmation email, and you’re in!


Once you’ve logged in to the site, click on “Account,” then click “Profile” from the menu that drops down. Be sure to upload a picture of yourself and add some social networks that you can be found at. If you include your YouTube channel name users will have TWO chances to subscribe to your channel on every video you post.

Don’t forget to add some bio information as well! Biographical info is a short bio that will appear on each of your video pages. The extended bio appears on your tutor page and is, well, the extended version.

Submitting Videos

Same deal… click on “Account” and then click “Submit.” Paste in the link from your YouTube or Vimeo video, add a description, tags, and at least one category and away you go.

The Forum

We have also included a forum on our site to give people the opportunity to ask more detailed questions and get the help they need. This is a great opportunity for you to share links to your videos, and offer a more in depth explanation. We even encourage you to make videos as a response to question in the forum. We’ve found that to be a very useful way to generate traffic to our channel in the past.

Thanks for coming, and good luck!
