The use of background music to improve your website can be very interesting in some cases. It can certainly help to transmit the message of your website. Maybe you ask yourself: “What is the best background music for my website?“. This is what this blog post is about.
Do you need background music on your website?
Of course it is important to decide if it is desirable to play music on your website. If the answer is an clear yes, you can start thinking what kind of music is applicable.
- The music should add value to your site, so the music should match the theme. For example if you have a website that deals with soothing massage techniques or exercises, soft and pleasant instrumental music on the background certainly reinforces your message.
- If you have a comedy act then funny, upbeat music in the background may be very appreciated and could help to get more subsciptions to your newsletter.
- However, there are situations where background music may at first sight seems a good choice, but where it is still better not to use it. I came recently on a website that sells rugged clothing and where a repaeted solid piece of rock music was used as background music.
At first sight, the link between heavy music and rugged clothing is clear. But not everyone who is looking for this style of clothing is therefore also a fan of a music genre based on loud screaming guitars. Image a lover of techno music on the site. He will rush to the pause or stop button. If he does not immediately find that button you can be almost certain that he will surf to another website.
What kind of website background music?
- It is particularly important that the atmosphere of the music fits the theme of the site.
- But it is equally important to ensure that the music is not too extreme or too pronounced.
- The background music may never be disturbing the surfing experience.
