I need your help with these. I’ve been playing around making some videos to promote my stories, but it is not my forte. The first one is really short, the second really long, which length do you like better? What is it that grabs your attention in videos first (in general, not these in particular)?

An interesting image can get me to click on the video. I generally prefer to see who is talking as oppose to just a voice over. From what I’ve read shorter videos are better. If I’m interested in the topic, I generally don’t care how long the video is. Talking to these 2 videos, in the first one “Growing Up As Fairies” popping up caught my attention. I was unable to play the second video. Probably a problem with my computer as this has happened in others’ posts. Hope it goes well.
I think I agree that I want to see the speaker, but I haven’t gotten brave enough to do that. 😆
Your specific feedback is helpful. Thank you!!
The second one, but ditch the background, male it all fit the screen and cut the time in half. The first one I don‘t see the connect between the story/fairies and the computer. Length is fine, but I‘d do a big picture of
fairies with „Growing up fairies“ then reduce the size of the text and fly in where/how to get it. Could be a couple of seconds longer to fit.
Thank you sooo much!!
I would definitely go for the second one. It’s long, but I always prefer long videos than too short ones.
That’s interesting, thank you. I tend to like the longer ones, too.
