If you are doing talking head videos or training/demonstration videos you really need to do the numbers.
For a rough estimate take the number of words divided by the time available = how many words you can say per second.
Doing the Math So You Won't Have To
- Vine Videos 10 words/6 seconds = 2 words per second.
- Instagram 36 words/12 seconds = 3 words per second.
- 1 Minute Demonstration Video 180 words/60 seconds = 3 words per second.
- 5 Minute Tutorial Video 900 words/5 minutes = 3 words per second or 180 words per minute.
Humans can speed up talking to squeeze more words in so it isn't an exact formula. You will have to balance going for speed versus being understood.
Before you start to ramble do the numbers. You audience will thank you.
