10 Awesome Places to Find Background Music for Video

10 Awesome Places to Find Background Music for Video | Tools to Try, Sights to See | Scoop.it

Consumers 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.


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.

A Gathering of Flowers: Content Curation History in Other Words

A Gathering of Flowers: Content Curation History in Other Words | Tools to Try, Sights to See | Scoop.it
Most people believe content curation is a relatively recent, Internet-born trend, generated by the constantly increasing amount of unverified information available online.


The general belief is that “content curation” is a content marketing tactic, designed to provide value to the reader and to save time and writing effort to the author/publisher. Such curation, according to most articles you find online, consists of searching and gathering already published content on a specific topic and to organize it together into a reading list, an anthology or a compilation.
In reality, the key elements of an editorial curation practice (finding, gathering, organizing/arranging, value adding, sharing) have a long history and have been utilized by man since thousands of years, to preserve, organize, uncover and highlight valuable poetry, philosophical ideas as well as historical and artistic works.


Historically, the need for curating content, appears to have arisen as a solution to two key needs:
1) to preserve valuable work before it would disappear
2) to facilitate the discovery and appreciation of valuable literary works, for future generations....

Content curation is probably a new term for an exercise or a habit of grouping and collecting similar books, ideas, or any kind of intellectual content. People have printed anthologies of short stories, horror stories...etc. There have been T.V. series based on writings of great writers, like, for example, Alfred Hitchcock, or for that effect Edgar Allan Poe, or even Somerset Maugham.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 1, 2017 8:13 AM
En marketing, a great image is often a key component of the message. Constant need for pictures can dig deep into your pocket when using stock photography. If you want a particular image, then it makes sense to pay for the stock images as it will be a lot cheaper than to hire a photographer. What to do when you need images all the time, but their marketing lifespan can be measured only in days, maybe hours? Images for Facebook posts, email newsletters, individual slides in presentations that you use only once… Paying 10 or 20 dollars per image for these adds up. So where do you get free images? I have collected a bunch of sites that give you exactly that… free images for commercial use.

Latest H5P for Moodle Upgrade Propels Interactivity Collaboration (And More H5P News)

Latest H5P for Moodle Upgrade Propels Interactivity Collaboration (And More H5P News) | Tools to Try, Sights to See | Scoop.it
The Moodleverse has spoken, and the H5P Core team has listened. Over the past few weeks, the Norway-based developers have made key improvements to the H5P plugin for Moodle, one of the fastest and easiest ways to add interactivity to a Moodle course. Even though the Moodle plugin is younger than its WordPress or Drupal counterparts, team engineer Svein-Tore Griff With assured us Moodle is getting the best attention it can get.

In fact, the April update, version 1.1, is “the first step of the H5P Hub”, an attempt to create a comprehensive interface for educators, designers and programmers, to deploy H5P content right within Moodle. Starting with 1.1, H5P users will see regular refinements in both functionality and usability. Over time, we will witness further options to create and collaborate on H5P-based interaction design, thanks to the “H5P Hub”.

The core of the update is a revamped content type interface. Now, the selection menu provides item descriptions and icons, with the choice to see more information on each type. It will place on top content types used before.

The H5P Core team vision for an “H5P Hub” of Open Educational Resources (OER) looks to allow users to share content with other H5P users, whether they are workin on Moodle or other platforms.

How to Write Catchy Headlines and Blog Titles Your Readers Can't Resist | Tools to Try, Sights to See | Scoop.it

It's one thing to write great content, but it's another thing to get it read and ranked -- which is where nailing the title comes in.


Titles are what sell the content. They represent it in search engines, in email, and on social media. It's no surprise, then, that some of the most common questions we get concern crafting titles.


How long should my headline be? What words should I use? What words should I avoid? Should I optimize it for search, or for social? Or both?


Luckily, we've come up with a simple formula for writing catchy headlines and blog titles that you can reference from here on out. So let's just dive right in, shall we?...

Content Curation Takes Time – Content Curation Official Guide – Robin Good

Content Curation Takes Time – Content Curation Official Guide – Robin Good | Tools to Try, Sights to See | Scoop.it

To gain readers’ attention and trust it is evidently not enough to create a top 10 tools list by searching on Google and then picking the best items from existing lists, or to pull together a few interesting article titles on a topic with their introductory paragraphs.


Unless your readers are not very interested themselves into the topic you cover, why would they take recommendations from someone who has not even had the time to fully vet and verify his own suggested resources?


Picking what superficially appears to be interesting content just by reading titles or curating and suggesting content to your readers by leveraging tools that do this automatically is like recommending movies or music records based on how much you like their trailers or their cover layouts.


By using this approach how many times are you going to recommend truly valuable resources versus how many times is your recommendation going to lower your credibility and authority just because the content you have recommended is actually quite shallow, provides no new insight, or it is even copied from somewhere else?

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 9, 2017 5:01 AM
What was once a web filled with code and scrolling text, the Internet is now the world’s largest conglomerate of images. And as visual content continues to rule, the number of images available online will only grow. But just because you can Google an image — and technically copy or save it — doesn’t mean the web is a free-for-all of visual data. Photographers and designers need to put food on the table. If every online image was available for free, there would be a lot more starving artists. Fortunately for them, copyrights apply in cyberspace just as in print. And anyone using an image without appropriate rights and permissions can find themselves in plenty of hot water. Understanding the ins and outs of image licensing and usage can save digital marketers, web designers and other content curators from unnecessary penalties, ranging from cease and desist notices to lawsuits and financial demands. Want to be sure you properly use images in your online content? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just follow our five simple steps, and you just might save yourself a load of legal trouble.

Think of all the photos of smiling receptionists and perfectly suited business leaders you've come across. These images may compete for attention, but often fail to register, simply because your customers can’t identify with them.


Use photos that more closely relate to your audience. It’s what we call "real photography" here at EyeEm: Unique captures, delightful moments, and surprising perspectives. Images that are more concrete will resonate with audiences much more powerfully since they show real life rather than staged situations.


To visualize what we mean, we put together a handful of generic images alongside a ‘real’ counterpart sourced from our community of photographers. The proof is in the pictures, but we'll let you see for yourself....

Terry Elliott's curator insight, August 16, 2014 7:26 AM

The image above amounts to a template for curating a digital space:

 

1. Find something timeless to curate.

2. Fit it into a pattern that makes sense.

3. Find a larger context for why this matters.

4. Share widely.

 

I think this fits into Harold Jarche’s simpler seek-sense-share framework.

 

Why does this matter?  If curation is all that Tufte and Bhatt say it is, then why aren’t scaffolds like these being used more often for training and in learning systems?  I am using the curation tool Scoop.it to do curation with my freshman comp students.  They use Scoop.it as their introductory platform  for beginning to acquire the skills  Tufte enumerates above that are part of the academic and business spaces they will eventually live in.  I am hoping they will demonstrate why it curation matters as they seek-sense-share their way to long and short form ‘texts’ that they will be writing all semester. That will include essays, tweets, G+ community posts, blog posts, research papers, emails, plusses, favs, instagrams, zeegas, slideshares, pictures, and a massive mobile presence from their own digital spaces.  Wish me luck.
