10 Awesome Places to Find Background Music for Video – The Mission

10 Awesome Places to Find Background Music for Video – The Mission | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

IConsumers find video engaging, compelling and convincing — so much so that they’re anywhere from 64% to 85% more likely to buy after watching a product video.

 

In fact, video on a landing page can boost conversions by an astonishing 80%. Already, companies that use video on their website get 41% more traffic from search results than those that don’t, and by next year, you can expect 74% of all web traffic to be video.

 

Sure, every smartphone worth its salt has a decent video camera, but the highly competitive content arena today demands top quality content in all formats — including video.

 

There’s a lot to think about, from actually shooting the video to post production, finding copyright free music and more. Equipment quality, lighting expertise, editing skill and audio optimization still matter a great deal (more than ever, in fact).

 

So while the barriers to entry for video creation have been reduced, the barriers to creating exceptional video have actually skyrocketed.In this column, we’re going to explore some really useful places to find one element that can make your marketing and product videos way more professional and polished: background music....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Video content has exploded in popularity, and it’s no wonder.

The new era of brick and mortar: not business as usual | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Retail marketers have long focused on perfecting their omnichannel strategies; however, the rules of consumer engagement have changed. Many major anchor stores are either closing or redesigning their approaches, and the overall mall landscape is changing to meet the needs of a new audience.

And while shoppers can be reached on a variety of platforms, they remain individuals and prefer a unified experience that engages them in unique ways. Business is not as usual. And, as this year’s holiday shopping season approaches, there are important lessons to learn.

Unique experiences build on brick and mortar’s strength
Even though online sales continue to grow, a recent Deloitte study confirms that consumers still prefer in-store shopping, choosing to make more than 90 percent of all transactions in store.

The fact remains — brick-and-mortar retailers offer shoppers something they want that online retailers just can’t provide: a hands-on experience with products and the ability to take them home immediately. That’s why today’s retail landscape is fertile for brick-and-mortar retailers to nurture shoppers, seeding growth with unique shopping experiences....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

The retail landscape is now omnichannel.and consumers are setting the table with new demands.
