When playing Christmas music in your business, you need to ensure it’s not too repetitive or distracting in your office space. In an office setting, music can have a great impact on staff productivity. For most offices, it’s best to play lyric-free music, or to use music with lyrics sparingly.
With Soundtrack Your Brand, you can drop multiple playlists into the same slot on your music schedule, and our player will automatically rotate the playlists.
