Tips for streaming background music in your waiting room

Of course, choosing the right music is only the beginning. Use these expert tips to help create  the perfect environment. 

Legal considerations

Personal or consumer streaming platforms are not intended—or licensed for—business use. 

To legally play music in your business’s waiting room, you’ll need to use a platform with commercial streaming licenses

Soundtrack Your Brand offers millions of tracks and a thousand playlists created and cleared for businesses. 

With Soundtrack Your Brand, you can select, customize, and stream the ideal Soundtrack for your waiting room. 

For U.S. and Canadian customers licenses for Performing Rights Organizations, including ASCAP and BMI licenses, are included so that you can save as you play with Soundtrack Your Brand.

Scheduling different playlists

For your staff and your customers, it’s important to switch up the music. With Soundtrack Your Brand, you can pre-schedule playlists at different time slots throughout the week. 

You can even mix playlists so they cycle through a variety of songs. For example, you might put three different playlists in the same time slot to combine piano solos, acoustic covers, and oldies. 

Keep the waiting room music simple and mellow, and you can’t go wrong.
