How To Design Killer Videos Favor short videos. If you can make it shorter and make all the same points, do so. Make sure to start off energized, and get the important stuff in. For a video of 4-5 minutes, fewer than 60% of your viewers will still be with you–against 75% for a 1-2 minute Don’t hold your call to action to the end, especially for longer videos. Think about breaking your longer videos up into digestible bits.
