His quick recommendations for using sound with a brand:

  • Make it congruent

  1. Interesting, Chris. Never thought of sound that way. I usually have the radio on in the office (WKSU–everyone knows I’m a classical music nut), but there are times I turn everything off. And in the spring I need to open the windows and just hear the birds singing.

  2. Hi Donna:
    Do your clients visit your office? Maybe they could hear the classical music playing in the background as you talk to them on a video about your latest trip or your newest upcoming travel plans. Of course, almost all classical music is copywrited so it shouldn’t be the main underlying score of your video!!

  3. Chris you make a good point about copywrites. Short of writing your own music, how do you recommend overcoming this obstacle? Can you provide additional data where music has helped or hurt a brand? Thanks again for an intuitive and overlooked venue.
