How Long Should Your LinkedIn Video Be?

“How long should my LinkedIn videos be?”

Not longer than they need to be.

Technically, anywhere between 1-5 minutes is a good length for LinkedIn.

It can also be shorter than a minute.

If it's longer than 5 minutes, try to split your topic into two sub-topics. So you can record two separate videos on it.

Or you can use it on platforms more suitable for long-form video content, like YouTube.

Now, being concise doesn’t mean you need to strip all the context from your video.

You must give examples and anecdotes.

But don't try to prolong the video more than it should be.

And that needs some training.

That’s why it’s better if you can record it with someone on a video call who can interrupt you when you start rambling and repeating yourself.
