Good question, I should have included that in my original post. Order of importance
#1: A quick Hi, Thanks, Goodbye for a long way.
A very short video where you just say hello and thank your viewers for listening to your beats and if you have any questions give them your email, phone. Maybe explain any other services you offer, keep it under 2 minutes. The important part is they just want to see your face.
This was a request from record labels and firms that want to connect with people they could be working with in the future. Also customers feel better knowing who they are buying from.
#2: Music Videos (Traditional or Creative)
An actual music video with your beat where things are in motion. An image that just sits there while the music is playing is pointless. We have had producers get creative with videos, for example, there was a video where it was just filming people walking on the beach during the sunset and it was nicely edited.
You don't need to hire actors and have a crazy budget, just be creative, most phones shoot in HD, add a film filter on Vegas or Final Cut and there you go. The main idea here is give your beat a visual feel.
Some producers have had jobs produce their own music videos with record label funding.
We get it
Some of you have never shot a video or don't feel comfortable in front of the camera and we understand. I'm just giving you some tips to help you stand out from the sea of producers out there.
