The Secret Behind Great Music to Grow Your Podcast

You already have engaging ideas, exciting guests, informative research, and a small but growing audience. Unfortunately, many treat song choices as an afterthought, but you will understand that having the right background music for your podcast will take it to the next level, and it’s also an excellent opportunity to have fun and be creative. 

Your podcast music is the perfect chance to help listeners identify your show and set the right mood for what’s to come.

Choose the Perfect Podcast Intro Music

When it comes to creating a perfect podcast, your intro music is one of the most critical elements. The intro music can set the tone for your podcast and help to create a memorable experience for your listeners. It’s important to choose the right intro music that will capture your audience’s attention and help to make a connection with your podcast. You may also want to mirror this as your outro music as well.

There are a few things to consider when choosing intro music for your podcast. First, you’ll want to make sure that the music fits the overall tone and theme of your podcast. If you’re creating a podcast about business, you’ll want to choose intro music that is professional and inspiring. On the other hand, if you’re making a podcast about travel, you’ll want to select intro music that is adventurous and exciting.

Second, you’ll want to make sure that the background music is catchy and memorable. The intro music should be something that your listeners will remember long after they’ve finished listening to your podcast. Choose a piece of music that is both unique and catchy. You want your listeners to associate the music with your specific brand of content, and the music will help them get into the right mood for the episode to come.

Take Advantage of Royalty-Free Music

Most podcasters don’t have an enormous budget, so to keep expenses modest, it is best to take advantage of using royalty-free music. Essentially, royalty-free music is music that you can use without having to worry about paying royalties. This type of free music is perfect for podcasters who want to avoid expensive licensing fees.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using royalty-free music. First, make sure that you understand the terms of the agreement before building a vast music library. Some royalty-free music sites will require you to give attribution to the artist, while others will allow you to use the music without giving credit. Be sure to read the agreement carefully so that you know what is expected of you.

Second, don’t assume that the best royalty free music is completely free. Some sites will charge a small fee for their music, so be sure to check the pricing before you download anything. Keep in mind that many music sites are essentially paying these royalties for you on your behalf.
