What is my budget?
It is critical that every consumer address this question, no matter what they are buying, prior to making a purchase. Identifying your bank account’s shortcomings and shopping accordingly so as not to overspend is a critical part of being financially responsible. Going royalty-free is a no-brainer for those on a tight budget. This is not only because you don’t have to keep paying over and over again for each and every time you use the music—it’s yours with one simple payment. With the help of royalty free music, sound is truly brought to the masses and not denied of those consumers who can’t afford to pay for it. This service allows virtually anyone to buy their own music without jumping through pesky legal hoops or paying a big fee. Music is not just for the “rich and famous” anymore.
Where am I using this?
You might try thinking about the specifics of your particular project and identifying the type of mood you wish to relay. The right music is what brings the audience in, grabbing and holding their attention, so you’d be doing a detriment to the rest of your work by cutting corners. Try searching by the specific scenario or category a sound would belong in is a great way to narrow down your possibilities. You can promote continuity in your business when you pair the right song with a great video.
When should I ask for help?
If you’ve hit a roadblock in your search, don’t hesitate to contact a musically-minded friend, or even a local composer who could help your through your rough patch. When you’ve got no idea or you’re finding it hard to make a decision, consulting the professional mind of a composer is a great way to break into the industry.
How often do I want to pay?
With most music, you pay per each use. That means that each and every project using the sound will have to bestow a percentage upon the owner whenever the song is played. Obviously, this can get pricey very quickly, and it can leave you completely broke if you aren’t careful. Don’t let fees eat away at your bottom line by purchasing something that won’t even make you the owner of it; a one-time fee gives you access to any number of the thousands of song files in the royalty-free library.
Who is my audience?
You target a specific group depending on the type of music you use. Pop hits? You’re likely to get teenage customers. Classical music? It’s an older crowd for you. Hit country sounds? You’re likely to attract down-home purchasers who live off the beaten path. Pick your music wisely and you will engage the type of listeners you’re looking to attract to your business.
