award-winning production and social media videos

“Charlieuniformtango is a consistently top-drawer operation. In my 20 years of projects with CUT, I’ve always had terrific experiences and have learned to trust their never-ending ability to bring their best effort to the table and deliver over and above expectations, again and again. I’ve always known that when I bring a project to Tango, it’ll go well, the clients will be happy, and we will actually look like we know what we are doing.”

Together, they bring the expertise and passion to get the job done beautifully, every single time. They are organized, detailed (their editors have actually made charts for versions and revisions for us!), and go above and beyond to make the work the best it can be. They are extremely collaborative and dedicated to their craft. And to top it off, they are a ton of fun, to boot! You are welcomed in and feel right at home. They are a trusted, tried-and-true partner for us at 31,000 FT, and we are so grateful to have them as a go-to partner!”

how can you attract social media users to share your video content online?

Encouraging social media users to share your video content is a six-step process:

1) Create high-quality original video content.

2) Optimize your video content with intriguing headlines and attractive thumbnails.

3) Make sure your video content quickly meets the user’s intent using savvy post-production to continuously deliver value and extend user watch time.

4) Publish your video content during peak social media engagement hours (Monday–Thursday, 8 a.m.–noon), which allows social algorithms to push your content in front of more people.

5) Incentivize users to share video content with irresistible offers and free resources while engaging their comments.

6) Regularly ask users within your video content to share, comment, like, follow, and subscribe.

what is the most popular social media platform for video?

YouTube is the most popular platform for video, reaching 2.7 billion monthly average users (MAUs). In 2023, 122 million people will watch YouTube every day, and that number is expected to grow in the coming years. The primary user intent for watching YouTube videos is to learn how to do something, which means the video length can be longer. When you’re considering which social media platforms to share your videos on, make sure you understand your audience’s intent (and attention span) for watching videos on each social platform. For example, Instagram videos are excellent for driving product sales, giving users short video content on-the-go of 60 seconds or less that quickly highlights product features and testimonials. Facebook/Meta is another popular platform for video advertising, though their 2.96 million monthly average users aren’t solely dedicated to video consumption, with 70% using the platform for connecting with loved ones.

how much does social media video production cost?

In 2023, the average cost of a social media video production is $3000-$5000 per finished minute for a 3- to 5-minute video. That said, you may spend $10,000 per finished minute on projects with rush deadlines, high-profile talent, 4K video production, or more extensive post-production. One way to estimate your cost per finished minute is to identify video production companies whose work you admire and submit a request for a quote. Gather the different quotes for the total cost of your social media video and divide each by the desired length of your final video. With this information, you’ll be able to accurately set expectations for your social media video budget per finished minute.

how long does it take to finish a social media video?

With a healthy budget, social media video content can be finished in as little as seven weeks. Every project is unique, and the speed of final delivery is ultimately dependent on your budget, the length of your video, and the strategy, production, and post-production processes. See “What is Film Production?” to learn about the video production process.
