In this post we will discuss the advantages of engaging a full time voiceover artist, against a part time voiceover artist.
Voiceover is a special vocation, honed over years and years of practice and effort. Many advertising agencies and creatives are trying to cut costs by hiring part time, voiceover artists for their projects.
If it was only about professional voiceover talent, maybe we could have let it go (it is your money, you get to choose who you want to hire, right?). But you are forgetting other factors that also count when you are engaging a voiceover talent. In this post, we will see some advantages of engaging a full time voiceover artist as against a part time voiceover talent.
Engaging a full time voiceover artist can be very rewarding for clients. Let’s assume you need to record something on a short deadline. A full time voiceover artist can fit you into your schedule and answer any questions you may have on short notice.
Time, talent, tone and other factors
A part time artist would probably be working a full time job and will be available to do your gig only after work, on the weekends or on a holiday. You probably won’t get an answer from them, until it’s too late for you.
Don’t forget, the part time voiceover artist’s time will be split between your work and their full time work. Their focus and mental energies will also be split. A full time voiceover artist can keep their head in the game for longer and the result will be better work.
What if you need a project revised a year later or so? There are many projects that call for the same vocal quality. If you contact a part time voiceover talent you can face one of the several constraints.
They may not be doing voiceover anymore or you may not be able to track them down. Their recording setup might have changed and you might have trouble getting the same vocal quality as earlier. Finally, they might not even have the equipment any more.
More reasons why a full time voiceover artist is a better choice
A full time voiceover talent can accommodate your request even if you contact them a year or two down the line because it is their profession, their bread and butter. A full time voiceover artist might charge a bit more but when you think about the advantages they offer, they are worth every penny.
Don’t forget, with a professional voiceover artist, the ultimate test is always value. They might underpromise but they overdeliver and this is true every time.
