BACKGROUND MUSIC IN TRAVEL VIDEOS
Travel videos are likely to be driven by visuals - panning shots, video montages, photographs. These visuals can be enhanced by using the correct audio track running in the background. The mood of the track should vary depending on the destination - if it’s a chill day at the beach, something calm; and something nice and upbeat if you’re showcasing the nightlife of a place!
BACKGROUND MUSIC IN EXPLAINER VIDEOS
An explainer video helps content creators, especially marketers, highlight a product or service. These videos will have a voice-over to communicate headline features of the product or the service. Use pleasant but non-intrusive audio in the background, at a lower volume than the voice-over. This will not only help hold the video together, but can also help set the correct tone for the explainer.
BACKGROUND MUSIC IN RECIPE VIDEOS
Recipe videos are very popular with everyone - from amateurs trying to take first steps in the culinary world to experienced pros trying recipes from around the world. Background music can provide context to the content (e.g. audio from the region that the recipe is from. If your video has a voice-over (likely if it’s been made for Youtube), adjust the volume to ensure the voice-over can be heard.
BACKGROUND MUSIC IN EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS
Educational videos are one of the fastest growing segments in the content creation world, with more and more people across ages upskilling on the internet. One way to avoid these videos becoming boring is through the smart use of background music. Just make sure the volume of the audio track isn’t so high that it clashes with the actual educational content in the video!
