TikTok-style video creation pricing for clients?

Hey all! I’m not sure if this is too specific a question or out of scope? I’d like to get info on pricing strategy for creating TikTok-style video creation. i.e., taking unedited video content and adding all of the graphic effects that are common in TikTok videos.

Welcome to the community, Laura! TikTok pricing sounds like it can be pretty tricky. We aren’t quite doing this at my agency yet because we don’t have the bandwidth and also because TikTok just isn’t a good fit for many of our clients. But I did see that @shannon1 is also looking for TikTok clients, so maybe you and she could brainstorm on pricing ideas?

Whereas we don’t do video content “specifically” for Tik Tok, I can tell you that we charge $500 for a 30 second video. Now they (end client) can use that in any way they wish.

Not entirely creating for a client, but I’m coaching clients how to make TikToks and charge $300 for the hour and we usually produce 2 x 15 sec TikToks in that time. I demonstrate with the first one and then guide them as they create the second one. It’s beginner level in the first session and get more advanced in later ones.

This is super interesting as it’s a question I’ve been pondering on, too. To date, we’ve been pricing based on time required. I see it much more like standard video. It can take a long time or no time at all, depending on what it is. I’ve tried to include a couple into a retainer but I don’t think that has worked for us.

That said, there is something about being able to respond quickly to trends so I see the logic in just seeing it as another type of content that a retainer could include.

Hi everyone! My company deals specifically with short-form type content. At our lowest package, we offer 30 Tiktoks/reels for $1,995 a month. This pricing applies to talking head style videos (30 seconds - 55 seconds) which include very engaging captions with sound effects, colors, emojis, gifs, etc.

I’d be happy to speak with anyone looking to offer this service in their agency or anyone that is curious about the service! Would be happy to help other social media managers out there.

Man, reading these replies makes me realize how crazy pricing is. I had no idea, very eye opening.
