Where do vloggers get their background music?

Vloggers source their music in many different ways. They might be asking a friend to produce music for their videos, maybe make some music themselves, or, more likely, get music from a third-party provider, like Epidemic Sound.

Regardless of the platform they use and the way they source their music, they MUST ensure that they do own the rights to use the music. Not owning the rights might result in having your account taken down and/or not being able to monetize.

What music to use for vlogging?

The type of music you use really depends on your vlogs! Some vlogs might require serious music and some of them might stand out with some cinematic epic music. Regardless of what genres you’re into, make sure that your music is royalty-free.

Having music that you have the right to use is crucial if you want to monetize your videos and grow your channel since many platforms are either banning people that use copyrighted music or they simply allow copyright owners to monetize their videos in case of a copyright infringement.

What background songs do YouTubers use?

According to our most recent study, it seems like Classical music was the Youtubers’ favorite across multiple categories last year.

Here’s a sneak peek at our Classical music page but also feel free to check out our other genres, moods, and curated playlists.

Can I use music in my vlog?

The short answer to this question is “Yes” but, to connect with what we mentioned in the previous paragraphs, make sure that the music you are using is music that you have the right to use.

Using music that you’re not supposed to use might lead to your channel being taken down or being unable to monetize on your vlogs. Surely you want to avoid this but, how?!

Services like Epidemic Sound allow you to easily access a variety of tracks and sound effects that not only improve the quality of your video but also protect you from copyright-related issues.

This way, you can focus on the most important thing which is your content.

How do you avoid copyright?

We get this question a lot but the answer might not be as straightforward as you may want. Enforcing measures against copyright infringement is on the platform where you upload your videos so the approach that YouTube has is different than the one that Vimeo has.

Generally, the more a platform is established (hence, able to make you monetize and/or develop your channel), the more measures they take to prevent copyright infringement from happening.

For this reason, following copyright guidelines will probably not take you very far if your goal is to create a community, earn some income or “get big” on YouTube.

Do vloggers earn money?

Just like many other aspects of content creation, monetization varies depending on which platform you use to vlog. Generally, many vloggers earn money because they are smart about it: they choose to post on several platforms or, at least, on the ones that bring them either visibility or profit.

Successful vloggers also invest in their content by improving their editing and filming techniques, which includes, among other things, using high-quality music.

The more one’s channel is successful, the more chances this person will have of monetizing and earning money.
