Why is background music important?

Do you remember yourself humming a jingle of your favorite song? Or have you closed your eyes, melting and feeling emotional to the BGM you hear on your headphone? Music no doubt plays a vital role in your daily life. With interrelated sense to mood, memory recall, and energy levels, a song or video without background music isn’t a choice for many. Although the reason behind such magic has been unknown for decades, harmony with the voiceover stays connected to the listener, always filling the space of memorable moments. Now, you may need a video for a business website or to upload on YouTube; adding music or BGM will make the best first impression. When the viewer or the customer enters the video, the interaction is magnetic when there is background music, starting from the first to the moment they leave. According to a survey, over 71% of customers feel better, and it is a cost-effective way too!

Tips for Adding Right Background Music to Video

Here are several handy tips for you to select right background for your video:
Know the purpose: The base of your video could be informative or entertaining. Understand the meaning or the type of background music that is required to drive traffic. Ensure that the theme supports your message and doesn’t draw attention away from what you want to convey.
Speak to the audience: Although there are various genres like classic, calm, vocal, and still a lot more, pick up a specific genre suited for your video. Depending on the target audience, pick background music that speaks on your behalf.
Craft the BGM complementary: Before crafting background music to your video, you need specific factors to make it complementary. For example, you must avoid vocal tracks if your video is a narration. Similarly, sudden spikes in mood or instrumentation aren’t the right choice, but a steady pace is better-to-go!
Target your audience: It might be for business or your social media marketing; the same interest audience is your primary target. Thus, based on the genre, look into audience demographics in detail. Keeping instrumental song as your first option as BGM preference, lo-fi hip-hop beat or soft acoustic track are the best choices too.
