I’m always banging on about video and how YouTube is crucial to the promotion of your music.

But often people think that they don’t have the material in them to make videos.

They’re wrong – you can film almost anything and post it to YouTube and your site etc.

This post from CD Baby has 12 great ideas of the sorts of things that you can do.

I’d add number 13 – Lyric videos.

If you’re track gets any success at all someone will create a lyric video, so you might as well do it yourself. People love them and you can simply have lyrics on a plain screen or you can do what a Katy Perry fan (I think it’s fan, not official) does below and use slideshow photos with the lyrics.

Sure, it’s Katy Perry, but it’s got 32 million views!
