I have one video contains an animated logo. 
All I need to insert this clip repetitively in the same timeline !!
But I need to do so professionally by any method rather than drag and drop, because I have a lot of work request the same manner. So, I will do so many times for long period.

A video demonstrating what I exactly need

The end result should be like this

that would make timelines for every pasted clip. I need them all in the same timeline.

Another possible consideration would be to add perhaps ten instances on your timeline, then select all of them and group them. Then add the group to the Library as an asset. Then when you click and drag, you do it from the Library and add ten instances at once/

Cheers... Rick :)

I was facing also the problem of using navigation through timeline. In this case I need to use "Ctrl+Alt+Comma" to move to the next clip so I can just paste using "Ctrl+v". And my problem was navigation through timeline works with all timelines. So that, I disabled all timelines accept the desire one. Now, I'm able to group many clips and "Ctrl+c" and  "Ctrl+Alt+Comma" and "Ctrl+v" ... etc that really accelerates my work.

Hi,
Since you only need the one image, just drag the duration of it to match the entire length of the video.
In this way, you only need one image whose duration is the full length of the video.

Actually, the dragged clip is not an image it is a video.

OKay.. So, it is just that video with the one frame in it, right?
Instead of copy / pasting that video, just extend the last frame. This makes it into an image. Then drag that out to the duration of the video.

Or, am I missing something here, about that video clip? It seems like it was just a still frame of a man.

thank you for your answer Kelly, but this video is a man and an animated logo as kayakman mentioned. However, your answer inspired me to convert that video to GIF. Unfortunately, GIF not able to be extended also
