What is the best length for a YouTube video?
When you plan your video, it is tempting to try to add as much content as possible. The problem with this approach, is that the longer the video, the more chance it won’t be watched to the end. This causes a bit of a problem, as unlike text based articles, video is linear and is not easy to scan or skip ahead. The rule (just like the written article), is less is more!
So, just like this blog post, keep your video short and you will achieve more completed plays. If your viewers like your videos, they will watch another. If you cannot get your message across in less than two minutes, you are probably saying it wrong! Re-write and try again.
