How much should I charge for a 30 second video?

In the example above, my company has a policy where each video is free on the account we want to share with everyone, but that doesn’t mean every video we put out isn’t going to end up paying. For example, they have a “One Year” plan that is free to you, however you can get an unlimited amount of video for $1.50/day if you pay yearly. What should you charge? In a small online business that is only starting out, you may get away with charging more than other platforms for a relatively short period of time, but in large companies this could lead to a big jump in price. For that reason, it is important to understand the current pricing structure and what it has cost you in the past.

What if no one likes my video and I can’t get back on track?

If the person who watched your video doesn’t like it, you have some options. You might not be able to get them to buy it if they have no interest and you can continue to make your videos free. However, if you can continue to grow your subscriber base and have some solid conversions, then you can potentially get another video made.


This can be a long blog post with a lot of technical information, but that’s not the point of this post. We are going to break this down and explain the different platforms, features, and pricing that you can expect from each to help you figure out what each one of them offers. We’re going to try and keep this information up to date as often as possible so that you are not left wondering if they are worth your money. The way I see it, you aren’t going to lose much value to these platforms if you are successful, whereas you can if you are not. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us by email or on Twitter.
