If you're looking to add music correctly to your videos so you keep viewers watching your videos for longer, engage with them more and get them to take an action like join your email list or buy a product, then stay tuned and watch this video.

Hi I'm David Walsh and if you want to add music the right way so your viewers stay on your videos longer, interact with you more and then take an action, ie join an email like to purchase something, then the simplest and easiest way of doing that is by adding music to your videos.

But it's not just adding any ole music -- it has to be the appropriate music for what you want to achieve, and also your audience.

Music creates emotion in us very easily.

It's been used for thousands of years for armies going into battle, and it's been used by the victors to celebrate their win, and thousands of other activities in between.

Music is a key part of the movie industry. It sets the tone for a movie, so even though something may not be visible, we can feel it -- all from the music we're hearing.

It will let us know if someone's in danger and going to beaten up...

It will let us know if someone in a tranquil mood...

And it will also let us know if someone's having a good time listening to some good ole rock n roll music...

In fact, you can have the same piece of video, and just change out the music and it will have a totally different feel to it.

Music does sooo much to our experience.

So how do you set that TONE correctly on your videos?

Well, it's actually a 4 step process...

01:18 Step 1
01:45 Step 2
02:38 Step 3
03:27 Step 4

The first step is to identify what the purpose of your video is, and what outcome you want.

If you want them to have a tear in their eye because of an emotional story, that's one situation.

If you want them to energized and full of energy after hearing what you say, that's another situation.

If you want them to take action, go to a webform and fill it out, or buy your product, that's another situation. And each of them have a piece of music to match.

The next step is to listen with your ears and feel what the music does to you when you listen to it.

With music you're looking to create an emotional state, and if the music doesn't do it for you, then it's more than likely not going to do it for your viewer.

If you're not sure how to do this correctly, then watch movies and videos online and make a note of when a piece of music puts you in the emotional state you want.

Reality TV shows are masters at creating emotional connections... they all use music effectively to create that emotional bond with contestants.

If you don't watch these shows, watch a few episodes and you'll see how they use music effectively with individuals and their stories.

Step 3 is to find Royalty Free music that you can legally use. Using the latest single from Will-i-am or whoever can land you in hot water, especially on YouTube, or worse, with a lawsuit.

YouTube can ban your video, and maybe your channel for using unlicensed music.

You could also be unlucky to receive a fine from the record company who owns the rights to the track which could cost your thousands and thousands of dollars -- and that's just for one track.

So make sure you use Royalty Free Music. Now, that's not FREE music, it's Royalty Free, which means that you pay for it once, and you don't have to pay again. You're not paying a Royalty to the composer or the artist who created the music every time you use it.

And as I said, this can cost thousands and thousands of dollars if you're using music from the charts.

The fourth and final step is to add that music to your video at the appropriate point in your video so you have the desired effect on your viewer.

Now, if you don't have access to a full library of Royalty Free Music that you can use to create your videos, then you're in luck.
