Video Production Rates for Different Video Types

Video production rates

When you consider video production rates and the many things that affect it, it can be hard to put a price on it. Anyone in the industry will always tell you it depends if you ask about rates or costs. That answer of course is not a very helpful one. Especially if you are asking the question in order to plan for your own video production.

To make it even worse you will find that many production companies don’t even advertise their prices. Check out a couple websites and you will notice that there isn’t a pricing page. There is always a page where you can request a quote but no pricing for you to ball-park and compare them with other companies.

Video production rates can vary remarkably. In just the same way your video needs may vary remarkably. Truly, you may need different types of video content for the different sections of your target audience. The truth is that buyers everywhere are at different stages of their buying journey. This means that there isn’t really a one type of video that will appeal to everybody that is in your target audience demographic.

Differences in Your Target Audience

So, to understand what type of videos you need you first need to know your audience. Some of your audience is just in the searching stage of their buying journey. They can be found at the top of list. For these persons, a simple 45 second video is good. This video can answer a question they may have and introduce your business to them.

The next stage is for the buyers that are further along in their buying journey. They are considering a purchase and so they will be more open to a longer video. These persons want more details and are willing to watch a video that is up to three minutes in length.

Then you have those audience members that are ready to buy. A video for these persons must be rich in content and context. The length of the video in this instance is not very important but the delivery has to be well thought out. This is because after this video your audience member will buy, and if it is not from you then that means your competitor is going to be getting some business.
