Where can I download free motivational "audio" backgrounds for powerpoint presentations?

I see the term "royalty free" all over, but of'course they are selling those.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Hi frugalmule will you be selling these?
motivational audio conjures up in my mind someone talking to a group.

Without any further explanation of WHO needs to be motivated, and HOW they need to be motivated, we would be at a complete loss trying to suggest suitable audio content.

Even if you were to find a repository of "motivational" audio files, it will be very hard (or perhaps not even possible) to find something that absolutely fits in with the presentation content.

If you are looking for "believe in yourself, remain confident and professional, and you will be able to sell sand to te Arabs" type of sales motivation, then it is probable that the creators would be a step ahead of you and will be selling the audio files.

If you could perhaps explain a bit more about the kind of content you need, we may be able to point you in a certain direction.

Have you thought about recording your own motivational audio background that you can synchronise perfectly with your presentations?
Free audio files are going to be difficult to find.

That said, there are a number of reasonably priced royalty free sites. I'd start with and

Great suggestions!!  Thanks to all.
Depending on what you're doing with the presentations, be sure to check the licensing. I think Footage Firm is pretty generous with this type of thing. You won't be able to resell the music (like if it's a part of a music catalog or collection -- nobody will allow that), but you should be fine using it in a presentation, even, I believe, if the presentation is for sale.

As you know, royalty free doesn't mean no cost; it just means you don't have to pay royalties every time you play the audio (or show the video or image, etc.).

Do you see any issues with this video and Twitter post?

The images are from Google and from what I understand trading platforms contain pictures that are used and reused all the time to sell products. I don't think that any of them violate copyright even though there is a mark.

Your thoughts are much appreciated.

No idea. I'd contact an IP attorney and ask about those images. I think you're probably fine with the audio -- but I'd get that big ol' speaker icon off the middle of the first slide! Just drag it off the edge so it doesn't show.
Thank you frugalmule
