Finding Music for Corporate Introductions and Events
If your company is holding a conference, corporate event, or other such professional meeting and you need music for the introduction, where do you go to find music that is affordable and fits the character of your company? What about a dynamic introduction to accompany the corporate logo in your media and video presentations? The answer is public domain and royalty–free music websites.
There are a growing number of websites out there that exist to supply you with that very thing. These sites offer a wealth of different songs and sounds perfect for a good professional, corporate intro. Music in the public domain, by nature, exists to serve the public so why shouldn’t corporations and small businesses take advantage of this low-cost alternative?
Here’s some things to look for if you decide to try public domain or royalty free music-
Look for a music site that is inexpensive. Public domain has a huge selection and is totally free to use, but it can be hard to find the good stuff. Royalty free sites offer more modern music but charge a licensing fee for commercial use ($25 and up)
Find a site that is easy to navigate where you can quickly find the genre you want so you can sample as many songs as possible. It is important to pick a style of music that is appropriate to the message you are trying to convey and the tone you are trying to set. Whatever the case may be, you’ll want a site with a list of music genres to choose from.
Lastly, you want quality songs, professionally recorded that are easy to download.
FreeMusicPublicDomain is one of those easy to navigate sites that have a welcoming interface, plenty of information to guide you around the website, and an ample supply of music genres such as Symphony, Orchestra, Instrumentals and even Comedy. If you want a one-of-a-kind intro to call your own, they even have a production department that can write and produce the perfect intro for your company.
When you need to have music for a particular setting, it is important that it moves people emotionally. Do you want them motivated, super-charged and on their feet or perhaps introspective, focused and prepared for some deep thinking? A common atmosphere used with corporate introductions is usually something elegant and easy on the ears.
At the end of the day, it is all about what will work for your employees or your customers and what message you are trying to convey.
If you find yourself in a jam and need to find an intro quick, selecting royalty free music can reduce the stress of committing to a long term, expensive contract. If you decide the music doesn’t fit, you’ll only be out $25 and free to look elsewhere. But if the music is a perfect fit, you just got yourself a great deal!
FreeMusicPublicDomain is the best of both worlds. Their entire catalog is available for free download for personal and educational use. They offer low cost standard licensing for corporate and commercial use. This allows perpetual use of the music without ever having to pay royalties. Best of all, they have some great intro music to set your company apart from the rest. Check out this sample intro and other great music – Ominous Space Intro
