cant figure out if I should show my lower budget videos on my website

So I do mostly music videos. I have done several, however only 1 meets my expectations. I was able to do so much more compared to my other videos because the budget allowed for it. Should I still show the lower budget videos on my website?

I like the lower budget music videos for what they are, but obviously my goal is to get more higher budget videos. If I only show the video I am really proud of there would only be 1 music video on my site. If I show a couple of the lower quality/budget videos I could have a total of 3-4 on my site.

the video links are below if that helps answer my questions.

this is the one I really like, and am proud of / the higher budget video
here are the other 2 that I am unsure of posting on my site
Thanks for your help and time

Re: cant figure out if I should show my lower budget videos on my website

Don't post them up just for the sake of having more video. One video is fine for a person to know your style/quality. I would only include them on the site if you specifically called them a 'lower budget' video. For me I only put up stuff that is work that I wanna do. If you don't want lower budget videos (or don't wanna advertise that you do them) then just put up videos that are up to your standards or you wanna replicate.

If you put them up three in a row, everybody will watch the first one, nobody will watch the second and third. This gives you the best of both worlds: it is apparent you have done at least three, but everybody sees how good the first one is.

Alternately, cut together a demo-reel with all three, but lean heavy on the first one.
