What’s the true value of professional voice talent?

Posted by admin on September 18, 2018
Like suppliers in any other market, there are a number of factors that determine the value of your use of professional voice talent. What’s demand like? How much are customers willing to pay for their services? How much experience does a voice artist have? Are they a recognizable name? Its true value is subjective, too. Say you commissioned a commercial for a product with an A-list actor with a recognizable voice, and (as an alternative) commissioned a lesser-known voice talent on the same ad, and then tested both ads with the same audience. If the sales at the end of the test are roughly the same, would that extra outlay on the A-lister really have provided better value? The point we’re getting at here is that commissioning a voice over for a marketing campaign is a lot more intricate and involved than working with somebody that just ‘sounds nice’. Get…...

How to use voice over online and connect with new regional audiences

Posted by admin on September 11, 2018
Data published at the end of August 2018 that showed the incredible difference that voice over online can make to a brand’s reach when marketing themselves to a wider audience. According to statistics from eMarketer published in eWEEK, smart speakers are changing the way that consumers find and purchase products. Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the U.S. where smart speaker sales have been stronger than anticipated. This year, for the first time ever, smart speaker adoption will bypass wearables (such as smartwatches) in the US; 61.1 million against 50.1 million. Most interesting to note in the same dataset, though, is precisely how smart speakers are changing American shopping habits and having a serious impact on consumer culture. 17.2 million consumers - around 28.2% of smart speaker users – will make a purchase using voice technology this year. That’s almost twice the 8.6 million total in 2017, showing the…...

How to find professional voice talent fluent in local dialects

Posted by admin on March 22, 2018
The new Marvel movie Black Panther has been receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike, with review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes commenting in an editorial in February that it was set to become the highest-rated superhero movie ever on its site. As great as the individual performances are in the film, there was something else that contributed to its success; the strength of the voice talent used. As Marvel and its competitors have discovered in the past, you can use all the CG you want to build a world where people fly in the sky and beat up villains, but it counts for little unless that world draws you in and feels believable. (Note: we understand the irony of writing about worlds where people fly in the sky feeling believable...) Perhaps Black Panther’s voice coach can explain what we mean.   How professional voice talent can increase immersion Website…...
