Video Production FAQ
The short answer is, as long as it needs to be. Simple messages that can be delivered in as few as 15 seconds should be, well, 15 seconds long. More detailed or complex videos—especially with content that delivers value to the viewer—could stretch beyond 6 minutes, and up to 12.
That said, viewers’ attention can start to wander after the first 2 minutes of video, in general. Some analyses suggest that two-thirds of your viewing audience will stick around that long; as you get toward 3 minutes, you risk losing as much as half your audience. So if a brief message is appropriate and achieves your goals, best to keep it short.
It really depends. It’s not unlike buying a car. They all get you from point A to point B, but a Mercedes costs more than a Chevy. Likewise, in our experience, a 30-second ad that requires a big production can cost more than a one-hour video.

However, there are a set of standard metrics for a video’s success. Marketing teams use some or all of the following:
- Number of plays
- Unique viewers
- Average viewing time
- Percentage of page visitors who viewed a video
- Shares on social media
- Likes and favorites on social media
