How To Choose The Best Length For Your Video Content.

When you’re putting together a video, blog post, social media, etc.  the best length is what makes sense to you.  You’re the expert here.  And the length of your content should be based on what you deem appropriate to the topic.  I use a few guidelines to keep my content from going further than it needs to.  Here are the video length best practices to keep the size of your video content in check.

 

Stick to the topic.  If you begin to ramble off it’s alright.  Once you catch yourself then stop, and summarize your thought.  Then you can get back on track and continue to deliver your content.

 

Answer the question what.  When you’re writing the content, you want to explain what something is and why the reader should care about it.  Sometimes this is a short answer, and in some cases, it may take a longer video length to get this point across.

 

Leave the reader smarter, not full of questions.  Before you post or publish anything, make sure it’s a full thought.  Meaning, when the reader is done, they feel like they’ve learned something, instead of wasted their time.  No matter what you’re writing about, make sure it is value packed and easy to understand.

 

Review the guidelines of the platform you’re on. Some platforms won’t allow you to upload a 15-minute mini-webinar about your subject.  Instead, you may only have 60 seconds.  In this case, I would suggest you condense the video length into an attention-grabbing summary video or gif with a link to the full post on either another platform or your website.
