3 reasons that your band needs a music video

A lot of bands think that their music alone is enough to promote them. And the costs and time spent making a video doesn’t always feel like it’s worth doing.

But it is.

Making a music video has a whole host of benefits. And we’re going to name a few of them here.

Internet video sites are very popular

So you did decide to make a music video. Now what?

Well you want people to see it, so upload it to a site like Youtube.

Literally millions of people visit the site each day and it could end up that your video becomes an internet sensation.

Remember PSY? He’s the guy who has the most views on Youtube. Around a billion. To give that a little perspective, there around 7 billion people on the planet... And one billion people watched his music video.

Don’t under estimate the power of the internet.

It shows that you mean business

Very few popular bands and musician don’t create music videos. And those that don’t, never reach the heights those that do make music videos.

So show your audience that you’re serious about your music. That you want to do everything you can for them. Because they’ll want a music video.

So give it to them.

It’s a visual representation of you

A music video is quick way to tell audiences exactly what you’re about.

Once upon a time people could only listen to music via the radio. They had to guess what their favourite artists looked like. How they dressed. What they represented.

But now, with the advent of the internet, your video can be seen by millions. And every, single, one of them learn about you and who you are.

And that’s always a good thing.  

One final note: don’t DIY your music video. If you want something that’s going to be effective hire a professional. There aren’t many great music videos shot on a hand held camera in someone’s back bedroom...

We offer music video production, so why not give us a call?
