Special Note on Copyright
All content for web design contained in your video must be original material that does not violate any copyright laws.

The stereo music tracks for your web design and web video are selected from our library of royalty free music that was purchased with full rights to use in web design productions.
Video Voice Narration Production Advice
Creating the narration for your custom web video may be done easily with free software from Audacity. The only cost to you for recording will be a computer headset with microphone which should be less than $20 USD if you don’t have one already. Instructions for downloading the free software with a tutorial for recording your voice to include in the web design may be viewed on my blog.
Do you dislike the sound of your recorded voice? We all do! Your recording is what you hear and what your small business customers will hear that you meet or speak to on the phone. Your custom web design web video will be more credible using your voice, so relax and be yourself.
Your voice narration recording does not have to be perfect based on other web design projects. You may want to visit the page for creating written video or audio scripts before you start recording. Part of the video production service includes edits of the voice track to remove unwanted sounds like sighs, coughs, or extended silence. In addition, as you record and if you make a mistake like fumbling over words, don’t stop recording. Start a countdown stating “3-2…” and instead of saying “1” simply pause and continue recording at the phrase, sentence, or paragraph where you made the mistake. I will edit and remove the errors as part of my small business web design services.
Additional Video Content Advice
For photographs or graphics that you furnish for your small business web design or web video, please provide high resolution versions, or at least the biggest file size you have. I’ll resize each to standard format for proper web design resolution. Having better photos will help create higher quality video. Contact me with any questions about custom web design and optional web video production services. Thanks.
