Where to Find Royalty Free Music for Your YouTube Videos

Posted by on Jul 23, 2018 in Digital Media Marketing |

Here are four resources you can use if you need to find royalty free music for your YouTube videos:   YouTube’s Music and Sound Effect Library YouTube has their own resource filled with tonnes of free music, sound effects and music supported by ads. This can be a great resource if you want simplicity whenever you are adding music to your videos. The downside is that they’re pretty limited in variety and if you use the ad-supported content, you’re going to have to deal with advertising playing in the background of your video.   Audioblocks.com This works on a subscription model and it has tons of tracks, loops and sound effects that you can use. There are a lot of great sounds on this site, but it also has its fair share of not-so-great beats.   Premiumbeat.com The licensing of Premiumbeat.com allows you to use these tracks in multiple videos. If you purchase the rights to use one of their songs for a single video, then you’re not limited to that single piece of content.   Audiojungle.net This website is vast in both the quality and quantity that they provide. You can find anything from classical vibes to dubstep smash hits for your YouTube videos.   Need help with your video marketing? WSI OMS can help you. Contact us for more information today.

Are You Using YouTube’s Community Tab?

Posted by on Apr 11, 2018 in Social Media Marketing |

YouTube launched a Community tab about a year ago. But, many people still aren’t making use of this functionality. The Community tab was launched in response to Google Plus, which has ultimately failed. Facebook is adding more and more video to their platform, so another reason why YouTube launched the Community Tab is to take on Facebook as a social platform. The Community Tab allows you to add text, animated gifs and images. You can also let your community know when you will be streaming live on this tab. The Community tab is very similar to Facebook in a sense. It’s a place where people comment on each other’s content, share information and short status updates as well as longer posts. It allows you to build your community on YouTube itself. So, as people subscribe to your channel, you can get them into your community group to see what type of other content you are posting and connect with other members of the community. Besides being able to enable notifications and add content on your Community Tab, you will also be able to moderate comments. Because YouTube is ever-changing, we will probably see more changes to this in the future as people begin to use it and build their communities on this network. As digital marketers, we know that not every company needs to invest this heavily in YouTube, but it is relevant for some companies who have gained a following on YouTube.

Posted by on Sep 15, 2015 in Content Marketing, Visual Marketing |

Video marketing is fast becoming a favourite means of marketing. Why? A one minute video holds the same value as 1.8 million words. Not only does a video speak a million words but it also reaches a vast audience, as about 100 million people watch online videos daily. Consequently a few myths about video marketing have been created. Here are five video marketing myths that have been busted: The duration of videos should be short. Most people have been informed that videos should not be longer than 2 to 3 minutes long. This is not true. The duration of your video will depend on many factors. For example, you should cater for each of your audiences depending on their need and level of knowledge on the respective topic. Effective videos are expensive. Many videos go viral on platforms such as Youtube which cost little to nothing to upload. A video must be creative, exciting and more. Simple communication is often sufficient to convey your message. The level of creativity naturally depends on the nature of the topic or cause. Video marketing is mainly for lead generation. Not only can you educate and inform your audience quicker and more effectively but online videos can add credibility to your company. Lead generation is merely one of the powerful tools of online videos. Videos should go viral to be effective. This is not only very hard to achieve but it is more often than not viral quality due to a shock, or at times inappropriate content. It will inevitable not add value to your brand image. However humour is often effective for greater traffic rates and less harmful to your image. The time to make video a part of your marketing strategy is now. It can form a vital part of brand awareness and personal interaction between parties such as businesses and their clientele.
