I just noticed the other day that YouTube has a search filter for length. There are two options aside from "any length." those are "< 4 min" and "> 20 min." So that's some decent insight into what YouTube thinks is relevant.
6-7 mins is golden.I don't know if I should be posting this in the editing section or general discussion, but my question is "How long should a Motovlog be, to keep the audiences attention?" I imagine that once you have a relationship with the audience they will sit through longer videos, but I think that generally peoples attention span are getting shorter. They want to consume information and entertainment quickly and won't sit through a longer video unless, UNLESS they are really interested in the topic.
So my question is, what have you found from your analytics and feedback from subscribers is the ideal length for a Motovlog. What is the average length of time someone will watch one of your videos? Personally I think around 5 minutes is what most people will watch. As a Motovlogger / content creator I would like 8 minutes or more to say what I want to say etc. Any thoughts?
This seams like a good motto. My last video "Dirt vs Street" I was hesitant to publish it. The video wasn't flowing very well and seam disjointed. I did another edit on it took out a few more clips and it came together well enough to post. Still not my favorite but cutting out several things really helped.I work in video professionally, and there is one basic rule. It can always be shorter.
What? there are videos of people eating? I must investigate...I like watching 5-7min vids, the big-time vloggers can get away with 10-20min vids cuz of the following that they built, but I suppose that goes for all famous youtubers of sorts.
Just watched the Hodgetwins (non-motovloggers) eat fast-food in their car for 20min.....
.... what am I doing with my life, too much internet for today
