Short marketing videos intended to explain your company’s product or service are known as explainer videos. Explainer videos are frequently used on a landing page, the main page of your website, or a prominent product page. An explainer video works best for SaaS video marketing.
The cost for a 2-minute B2B SaaS explainer video can range from $1200 to even $10,000 depending on the video length, budget, style, character animation, motion graphics, agency/freelancer, etc.
Depending on the complexity of the project, style of the video, humor content, number of features to be included, and brand personality integrations, the price of a 1-minute B2B explainer video script can range from $500 to $3000.
B2B explainer videos are used to give a final nudge to the customer to get them from consideration to conversion stage. A SaaS explainer video explains the overall workings of the product, key features using the UI, and highlights the brand’s motives and future goals.
Depending on the style and scope of the animation and production, a 60-second explainer video made professionally by an agency can cause between $1,000 to $5000.
