What is an Explainer Video?

By addressing customer problems and subsequently providing a business solution with eye-catching visuals, explainer videos are frequently employed in internet marketing strategies.

How Long Should  Explainer Videos Be?

The goal of explainer video is to keep your audience engaged. The shorter the video, the more likely your viewers will watch it all the way through. We typically recommend 60-90 seconds max to achieve best result.

Anything less than 60 seconds does not allow you enough time to establish trust. Viewers could easily lose attention with videos longer than 90 seconds.

Put It On Top Of Your Website Landing Page

You’ve already lost visitors if they have to read or scroll to get to the video. This is why we advise placing the video at the top of your landing page. There should also be a clickable link or next step for the visitor to take.

For Instagram, you’ll need to upload it to their platform. Keep in mind that Instagram only allows videos of up to a minute in length, so make sure your explainer video fits that time limit!
