Why Use Professional Voice Artists?
We all know that running a business can often be a juggling act and it’s often easier to just do something yourself. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case with your audio and video projects. Do them yourself and they’ll look and sound like just that – something you’ve done yourself, which is why many organisations hire professional voice talent to help make their audio and video projects shine.
Voice over artists are specialists in their field, providing various tones, reads, and the appropriate pace to perfectly get your message across. This means you can have peace of mind knowing you’ve not only ticked one thing off your project’s to-do list, but you’ve also hired someone who will connect with your audience and find unique ways to elevate your script.
A professional voice-over artist is the key to making your next video project, phone audio, podcast episode, eLearning module, and more, sound the best it can be. Not only that, but the right voice-over artist should also fit perfectly with your brand while taking your business exposure to the next level.
Finding the Right Voice
When you hire professional voice talent, you can relax with the knowledge that your chosen voice over artist knows how to sound warm, engaging, and personable from the get-go. They’ll already know exactly how to make your video shine, how to greet every calling customer with a smile, and how to make any voice over project sound professional.
It’s important to consider who the voice will be reaching. Will it be your current, loyal customers? Potential prospects? Or students engaging with eLearning?
A professional voice-over makes all kinds of media far more accessible, as many people engage a lot better with audio, and those with low vision benefit greatly from a clear voice-over read.
Think about who will be hearing the voice and how they may receive it. Advertising needs to stand out from the crowd while fitting in with your image; callers need engaging, helpful voices to guide them through to the right department and keep them informed; and eLearning requires professional voices that enhance student engagement.
Consider your brand, desired image, and what you offer your customers or clients. This will help you search for your preferred voice talent through age, tone, accent, and more, plus, you can always direct your hired voice talent to voice your recordings in a particular style.
For example, if you run a spa and wellness centre, you’ll want your voiceover professional to speak with a warm, relaxed, and calming tone to suit your services. Those who operate medical centres may prefer a more mature voice, while those running bars or boutique retail shops may prefer a younger, brighter voice.
Once you’ve narrowed down your ideal voice for your brand, you’ll then find it a lot easier to listen to voiceover reels and decide who you’d like to hire.
