Hence by including videos, you’ll be sure to reap the benefits later with higher sales and generating more conversions.

If you have not already seen videos on YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, or Facebook, you need to know the length and duration of an ideal product video. Here’s a round-up:

  • Quick demo: anywhere from 15 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Explainer: anywhere from 30 secs to 90 secs.
  • Quick tutorial: If you’re publishing on short-form-friendly social media platforms like Instagram.
  • In-depth tutorial. If you are a vlogger and for channels like YouTube, the duration of your video should be anywhere from 7-15 minutes.
