When we see the videos that inspire us on YouTube or Facebook, we wonder how such lyric videos are made. Actually speaking, making almost professional videos is not as difficult as we think it is. All one needs is the basic know-how on presentation facts and some thumb rules to tweak them according to our audience.

A lyric video is a video with just the lyrics playing like a presentation with the song playing in the background. The lyrics for any song can be played in a video form. This is a great way to share the lyrics of the song you love with your best friends on YouTube. A video can be easily made in many video making applications/software iMovieWindows Live Movie Maker or a simple PowerPoint presentation. Once you design the video inside and out, you can make as many videos you need the same way.

Video Editor’s Magic

Use a virus free video editing software to design your lyric video. Using a video editing software to make your lyric video would give the professional look and feel you need. The variety of fonts, backgrounds and options to import your favorite songs to start off quickly with your video is one of the positive aspects of having a video editor in place.

Favorite Song On Your PC

Keep your favorite song readily available on your computer for which you want to make a lyric video. The song must be an audio file. Ensure that you have a good quality audio file to get an overall professional lyric video.

Adjusting The Video Aspect Ratios And Color Scheme

Beware of the video aspect ratios. The lyric videos should have 16:9 aspect ratio to be presentable on YouTube. Any video on YouTube if published adapts to the inbuilt video setting. Another important thing to consider is the color scheme. When the lyrics are of importance and needs to be highlighted, a contrasting color scheme is of utmost importance. The lyrics should be displayed clearly and should be in a readable font and style.

The Title Page Is A Must

Add a title page to give your information, details about the song, composer, lyricist/songwriter/ghostwriter and much more. This can give your audience much wanted information about the song you share. Also the title page is the first page to create an impression about the video. Be mindful of the fonts, format, arrangement of text and the style.

Key Steps In Creating A Video On A Software

• Open a new movie/presentation/new event

• Import the song from your PC

• Create your video with the pre-installed templates if any

• Adjust the background images to suit your lyrics

• Adjust the lyric line to the song line

• Play the song and adjust wherever necessary

• Save the video and export it in an adaptable format supported by YouTube

• Upload and publish your video to enjoy your creation.

With an already buzzing YouTube audience of over 400K+ subscribers, Kid Travis wanted his Instagram profile to start gaining some of that same traction.

While you can get some spill over audience from YouTube, Kid Travis knew that Instagram ad campaigns could boost his presence on IG even further!

He discovered that trying to run Instagram ads yourself vs. having us add our years of experience and expertise to them made a huge difference!

His main goal was to achieve new followers who are seriously interested in his journey as an artist.

Kid Travis already had amazing talent but needed to combine his music genius with some marketing expertise to get the best of both worlds.

We were able to bring out the heart of his music through paid ads by editing & optimizing his existing videos and properly researching and structuring his ad campaigns.

The end results: We were able to consistently and predictably gain followers averaging between $0.25-$0.35 per follower (including a bulk of the promotion being done in high cost English speaking countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia, & Canada) resulting in around 4,000 new, engaged followers/month on Instagram.
