YouTube is a global phenomenon that began back in May of 2005. As a platform for original videos, YouTube has enabled businesses to market themselves, has allowed advertisers to introduce products, individuals to get recognized for their talents, and learn the “How To” for just about everything.
You’ve heard the success stories of musicians making the big league, getting signed by a recording label after their YouTube video hit over a million views. That’s the wonderful thing about YouTube, it is your original content, not edited, not fake, and it’s just you and your raw talents.
With the rise in YouTube popularity, it has become a competitive, but useful, market to showcase a musician’s creativity. You want your video clip to distinguish your music from the rest of the YouTube musicians. Working alongside a professional with expertise of the music industry, video viewers can go from a few hundred to millions.
Working with a professional to produce a YouTube video has its advantages, and here are a few:
- The support system for trying something new like switching up the arrangement or using a variety of instruments.
- Keeping good music at the core of the YouTube video and assisting with putting your best foot and music forward.
- Teach that a less is more approach is easier to follow. When videos are full of add-ons and distractions, you’ll lose viewer interest.
- Using a professional production team will ensure you are for example, playing in the right lighting, the video tone compliments the music, and so on.
- Your sound will resonate through the speaker with clarity.
- Choosing the right name for your video will get far more attention.

Everyone knows about Apple’s iTunes, Pandora and Spotify are avenues for music lovers to listen to their favorite musicians on their mobile devices or while they are at home, without being tied down to purchasing a CD and the hassle that comes along with that. Mp3s have been the future and most music consumers have the accessibility of their music on their iPod or smartphone.
Google wants to get into the piece of the pie that MTV has left open since it went to reality television and averted from playing music, a market that has up until recently dominated by Apple. Now there are many contenders, and with the revamping and unveiling of the YouTube Music Key it’s another slice of the pie to divide, and with the collaboration of Vice Media and Live Nation Entertainment also jumping in the ring.
YouTube will also offer a paid subscription to Google Play Music.
The controversy with all these “freemium” music services is that the musicians and all that are involved in the music creation process feel like they aren’t being compensated with enough royalties from the free play options. This has been an issue ever since the piracy of music was the main way consumers received their music. The industry has been struggling to control piracy since then and these music services have been trying to help in that effort.
