The Rule of Thumb

There’s a basic rule in the video marketing industry to allow £1000 for every minute of finished film. Before you recoil in shock, consider that this is a very rough estimate and can change according to your business’ needs. This cost takes into consideration a completely finished piece of content. A complete bundle of everything involved in video production – including crew hire, equipment costs and location pricing, to the pre and post production involved in making a film. Also involved in this £1000 per minute cost would be any music licensing, stock footage and graphics work. Of course video lengths vary on the type of video you’ll be creating, so let’s look at some common examples of popular video types businesses produce.

  • Brand / Company Story Videos – £4000 Upwards

These are videos where you present information about your business to potential customers – perhaps as an introduction on your website or social media. Of course it’ll take more than a minute or two to explain your company, therefore expects costs over four thousand pounds for creating this sort of video. You may also need to consider multiple versions for different platforms.

  • Product Explainer Videos – Around £3000

Product explainer videos provide you with the chance to demonstrate your product or services to potential customers. These are essential for businesses with products or services that might be highly technical or otherwise difficult for the everyday consumer to understand.

  • Social Media Ads and Content – Around £4500

To create a series of films to use as social media content, you’d be looking around four thousand, five hundred pounds. Creating an entire suite of content gives you plenty of fresh content to post over time – keeping your audience engaged.

  • Broadcast Ads – £10,000 to £500,000

These are advertisements that you would find on television. Whilst they start around ten thousand pounds, they can increase in price by an incredible amount when you consider high-end ads such as Christmas releases and the sort of advertisements you see at events like the Super Bowl. Before attempting to create ads for television consider where and when you want your ad to be broadcast and factor in that cost.
