trainers, 30 vs 60 minute bootcamp sessions, what is better?

In my experience most ppl cant even last a 60 minute class of high intensity. Towards the end they are burnt out. However 30 minute class seems to get them feeling good afterwards. However, in the end what is better for advertisement? 30 minutes or 60 minutes?
