Someone recommended to download background music for my They Ask, You Answer videos. I know I have to get the licensing right otherwise my videos can be blocked from Facebook and YouTube. A $15 per month personal license turned into a $50 commercial license which is more expensive than I want to spend. Looking for a more reasonably priced source for background music I can post on YouTube and Facebook. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am a recording artist and am looking to get involved with selling my music for marketing/sales and other video uses. I would be happy to offer any song at $100 per song for LIFETIME usage to any members of IMPACT+ (for companies with less than 250 employees). Or, $50 for lifetime usage with the agreement that you credit me in the description of the video as the music composer. If you like any of my music, message me and we can talk shop.
Hi Larry, I use Soundstripe, the license model is really worry-free

In the past, I've used Soundstripe you could also check out this music archive as a budget-friendly option.

Megan Lang Alex Winter Lindsey Schmidt - Where would you guys recommend looking for music? I know we have a pretty good inventory of places we look!

We use envato market (we have a subscription but you can also just use audiojungle!) I think sometimes Youtube is finicky with the license stuff but if you just show them the license that comes with the song it usually works out. We used to use as well which was more expensive and not as corporate sounding tracks, but still a good quality choice.

  • Post Hey, all!

    Wow, Connor, way to put me on the spot right off the bat! :-) Figuring out where to get started is probably the hardest thing. But, I just read through all the scorecard suggestions, and I think I'm going to start with the touchless buying experience. I already started on this a bit after the Web Optimization Summit. It could be HUGE for us!

  • Post How are you giving back to your community?

    I've set a priority over the next 10 weeks to give back more and I could use some inspiration!  ➡️  How are you giving back? ➡️  What charitable organizations are you working with? ➡️  Where should I be looking for opportunities?  It doesn't have to be anything huge, I just want to find a way to do more for others, and perhaps it'll push others to do the same. Share some of your favorite ways to give back down below and hopefully I can join in as well! 😄

  • Post How to integrate a pricing page?

    I wonder how to integrate a pricing page when the price we quote is based upon the work we do for clients with a tax liability with the state or federal government.  We specialize in tax resolution, helping folks with state and federal tax problems. The price range is too wide to feel comfortable posting it. Suggestions?

  • Post Hubspot Marketing Attribution is a Game Changer...

    Being able to define the value of every interaction from prospect to customer with a hard dollar amount... Priceless if you ask me. This is a game-changer IMO. What is the value in dollars of a phone call? A blog view? An email? well, now you can answer those questions with precision.
