Greetings from sunny Jamaica! We’re having an amazing time here, and we wanted to make you a part of our experience! So in the video today we’ll talk to you about a concern everyone who’s starting out (and sometimes even seasoned veterans) might have. And that is: how long should your Facebook videos be?
We’ve created hundreds, if not thousands, of Facebook videos, and we’ve discovered through trial and error what works and what doesn’t. So let’s not waste anymore time!
How Long Should Your Facebook Videos Be?
If you’re posting a static, pre-recorded video, it should be one to three minutes long. The videos that perform the best usually fall into the category of one of the Big 3 Es:
Another amazing idea is to use captions on all of your videos! People love that! We use a service called Rev.Com, which provides captions for just $1/min.
And of course, the hottest thing you can do with Facebook videos right now is to go LIVE!
LIVE Videos can be longer!
That’s right — live broadcasting can be slightly longer than the regular, static videos. And it work so well!
The length depends on the goal which you have for your Facebook videos. Most of them are about 10 minutes long. However, if you do a webinar, a presentation of a live Q&A session, you can go longer. This is especially true if the live broadcast is scheduled and promoted ahead of time, because people will be expecting it.
But what do you do, if (perish the thought) no one shows up to your live broadcast? Should you wrap it up as fast as possible? No! Keep going, and make it as long as you would have, if people had come. Why? Because people are like Santa — they’re always watching, and you never know who will see the replay!
And if you have nervous jitters before going live, simply practice. Use the “Only Me” privacy setting, and you’ll be your only viewer. So test the waters!
Facebook videos are the best way to get yourself out there and to get people to start falling in love with you. And if people love you, they’re going to want to do business with you.
Be Unapologetically YOU
Your vibe will attract your tribe. But remember: if you’re gonna attract, you’re also gonna repel. You can’t be everyone’s cup of tea. And that’s OK!
