Are you in business? An entrepreneur perhaps?
Or maybe you work in marketing and advertising?
Regardless, if you’re looking to promote or advertise a product or service online with video, on TV or even radio you may want to pay attention to how really good multimedia marketing and advertising works.
That is, pay attention to the promotional videos on and off-line that stick in your head long after you’ve seen/heard them.
Why does that happen?
Likely, because the advertisers were able to match a song that helped bring emotion to the visuals of the video, and in turn, you as the viewer, likely felt some internal emotional movement as you viewed the images tied to the song/sounds.
In fact, in many ways the video’s soundtrack, if a song, serves as an emotional bridge between the video’s core message and the supporting images it displays. In other words, the soundtrack makes the video have more impact and resonance for the viewer.
It’s the same reason a suspenseful scene in a movie actually feels suspenseful -- the soundtrack bridges the gap between the story and the visuals. If you were to watch the same scene without sound, it wouldn’t have near the same effect.
If you’re in charge of making videos for marketing purposes, or simply are an online video maker, using royalty free music from HookSounds can be a good way to afford an effective soundtrack for your project.

You're a young man. A young professional.
You've been out of college for a few years.
You and your girl got married a couple of years prior. She's pregnant with your first child.
You're an enthusiastic up and comer in the company for which you work. You want to be an up and comer in your industry, and the role you're in now is the stepping stone toward bigger and better things.
You're not a hot shot, or some whiz kid, but you're programmatic, respectable, highly professional and extremely hard working.
Because of your role and career aspirations, you've come up with a personal brand that enhances your image within your profession, which is complementary to the company for which you currently work, and gives you enough of an edge for bigger companies to want to keep their eye on your achievements in hopes to one day recruit you for a larger career opportunity.
Part of that personal brand is the way you present yourself -- professional, organized, reliable and a go-getter.
Part of your ensemble is your iPad Pro leather portfolio case with briefcase style handle from iCarryAlls. That, along with your elbow patched smoking jacket, solid-colored V-neck shirt, dark blue jeans, cuffed at the ankle and your low-rise Chuckies (shoes), you're a hip young pro ready to infuse your clients's businesses with success.
