Background Music, as you know, plays an important role in your videos. If used right, it can boost your video engagement scores on your social media pages.

Below, I’m going to show you how to make videos with music.

STEP 1: Login to Rocketium

If you haven’t already, head over to Rocketium and create an account.

Why do I need to give my email id? This is because Rocketium will send you the downloadable link of your music video to your email inbox. Once your video is ready, you can download it using this link and then upload it on social (YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or include it on your website and in emails).

STEP 2: Go to the Editor

Once logged in, you will be redirected to the Rocketium Video Editor. Here you can start creating your music video. This is what you will see:

Note: Selecting multiple media files automatically adds them to different scenes.

STEP 3: Add text, images, and video clips

Upload your images/video clips or browse the built-in collection of over 1M royalty-free media from Storyblocks, Videoblocks, Pixabay, Pexels, and Flickr. Here, you can add text and voiceover for each scene as well.

You have text styling options like bold, increase the size and italicize. You can either upload a voiceover or use your device’s mic to record your own.

Once your content is finalized, click Preview in the top right. This is how your screen will look once you’ve got the content in place:
