Internet marketing attention is focused on broadband streaming media and nothing could be better for your music than a slice of that attention. This is a marriage made in heaven streaming media and music video.



With the free, built into Microsoft, Movie Maker most everyone can take their audio file and with a little creativity make it into a compelling video. online music promotion videos are no longer a barrier for bands to take advantage of the onlinetv revolution. Just pop some cool pictures or some video shorts from your mini-cam, lay in your audio tracks and viola! You have made a simple music video to get that song out. A video with title, credits, lyrics and a message where viewers can buy it will more than suffice as a promotional tool. Don't forget "Where is the next gig?"



Who has not heard of YouTube or Google video? These amazing amalgams of everything under the sun stand as monolithic compendiums. There must be more than 100 million videos on these sites containing an inexhaustible variety of material covering every topic under the sun. This makes them the world's largest central repository for video. Like a dictionary containing every word it has the drawback it cannot be read even if using an index to find something. If you are not the most popular or the featured few darlings your message never sees the light of day, except by you. Google's top 100 videos are populated with soft porn girlies and that is hard to compete with.



Never let it be said that having your music video on YouTube or Google should not be done. Au contrairy, that is the first thing you would do followed by posting that video to your MySpace account. What did you say? You don't have a MySpace account? Then go get an account now! The accounts are free, easy and worth the effort. Move! Get back here when you are done baking that cake.



Now it is time to put some frosting on your cake. Frosting for this project is exemplified with a video share site like MusicTV Video Share. A shared video website designed with a specific focus on music. This is the oldest site streaming on the Internet. Even before Real or Microsoft had streaming software MusicTV.com was broadcasting live bands from New York City and London using its own software. Every week over 20 concerts of independent bands were broadcast live and then archived on the Internet. Amazing! Even Keane played for MusicTV! While they no longer stream live they have put up a new video-sharing site that offers almost all the features of YouTube as well as the name and heritage (page ranking!) of MusicTV. The video share site is now only weeks old so you have an opportunity to rule the front page and the search engine results!



You can download your YouTube flv file using Vixy website saving time to upload with the smaller flv file, or simply upload your original (under 100meg) right onto the MusicTV servers. The service handles the conversion of most formats if you do not have an flv file. You will end up with an embeddable flv video as well as a URL for places that do not let you embed or email! The page is a perma-link home for the song that can be attached to your "group" at MusicTV Video Share. The offered code works in MySpace, Blogger and just about all the web sites that allow embed code. MusicTV Video Share has community resources that include; your own personal profile, messaging, friends, favorites, play lists, groups and other tools to help you expand your fan base. You can use the community by populating your profile with your music videos, pictures, and information while you form a group using your band name to gather new fans. It works. You can then send email to your friends directly from your account at MusicTV. It is all simple and easy.
