Has anyone noticed any benefits in terms of traffic when adding background music? Has it kept your subscribers/non subscribers watching etc? Is it worth it?
That's a really good reason to add music. I notice a lot of people I watch do it, but I can't ever find the right music for my videos, so I figure I'm going to have to sort out how to make them work without it.Well, I add music because it helps tell the story. I haven't noticed any increased traffic with or without music.
Yeah, that's why I started writing my own music.. . . but I can't ever find the right music for my videos . . .
Yup, that'a great approach especially if that composer has released their music under Creative Commons. Also check out Bandcamp for the same reasons.but you can also try to find music on a website like soundcloud and contact the creator to see if you can get permission to use it in your video.
Yes, what I feel is, video is itself is a complete thing but having background music makes it more interesting for people to watch it, which indirectly or directly gives you good audience retention.
...... this isn't a thing that would drive traffic. It would help people STAY on your content, but trafffic is driven by outside factors like title, thumbnail, promotion on socials.... not necessarily having background music.
