Quick Tip For Your Veterinary Facebook Page Add Music To Video

Videos are a great way to share engaging content on your veterinary Facebook Page.

Whether it's cute puppies coming in for a visit or an unusual pet arriving for a check-up, statistics show that more than half of daily Facebook users watch videos on the platform every day.

Although videos are now so easy to take on your smartphone, often the sound in the background isn't quite so appealing and so you may have thought that your only option was to upload it without sound, which can make for a less interesting video experience.

FREE music tracks on Facebook

Rather than worrying about copyright issues, you can now access thousands of royalty-free music tracks and sound effects that you can download and add to your videos before uploading them to your Facebook Page.

To access the tracks and sound effects and all you need to do is:

  1. Click on the 'Publishing Tools' tab from the Menu at the top of your Facebook Business Page
  2. Click 'Sounds' from the menu on the left-hand side

You can search for a suitable music track by:

  • Name
  • Genre: Folk, Western Classical, Blues, Holiday, Middle Eastern, Latin, Jazz, Ambient, Rock, African, R & B and Soul, Comedy, Electronic, Children's, Pop, Classical, Indian, Orchestral, Reggae, Country, East Asian, Cinematic, Novelty, Hip Hop, 
  • Moods: scary, Dreamy, Bright, Groovy, Happy, Romantic, Aggressive, Glamorous, Peaceful, Sentimental, Funky, Suspense, Sexy, Energetic, Quirky, Inspirational, Dramatic, Mysterious, Sad, Dark, Angry, Chill
  • Duration: 0 - 30 secs, 30 secs - 1 min, 1 - 2 min, 2+mins
  • Vocals: Ensemble, Has Vocals, No Vocals, Female Vocal, Male Vocal

You can also search for sound effects by:

  • Name
  • Categories: UI; Industry, Machinery, Tools & Office; Water & Underwater; Footsteps; Alarms, Bells & Sirens; Fabric; Household; Human Voices; Cartoon & Comedy; Animals; SciFi, Fantasy & Horror; Transportation; Accent; Crashes, Hits & Impacts; Doors, Opens & Closes; Ambience & Public Spaces; Musical, Buttons, Switches & Clicks
  • Duration: 0 - 2 secs, 2 - 10 secs, 10 - 30 secs, 30+ secs

Click on the Play arrow to hear the track or sound effect, or click on the down arrow to download and then save the MPEG-4 Audio File.

NOTE: all of these sound and music files have only been pre-cleared for use with Facebook and Instagram. So if you're looking for music to add to videos you intend using on YouTube, you'll need to find another source.

So it's pretty easy to find the right music to suit your video - and even better, it's FREE!
