The Benefits Of Hiring A Professional Voice Talent For Your Business
If you have a project that needs a voice over, it often comes down to choosing someone from your own company or hiring a professional voice actor. This is especially true if you don’t have a large production budget. But really, if you ask us, we think you should hire a professional voice actor for the reasons you will see below.
Quality- Whatever you’re trying to make, whether it’s a company presentation for clients or a commercial to be aired on the radio, the end result will have a high-quality finish if a professional voice actor has been called to do the job. You can have the highest quality video, but if the audio track does not match up, you will fall flat on your project’s goals.
Styles- Professional actors have paid their dues in developing their skills and they can read your script in a variety of different styles, from conversational and friendly, to dry and professional, and anything else in between. Reading the script in a particular voice will give you insights on your copy which you might not have thought of before.
Smoothness – Professional voice over actors already have the necessary equipment to deliver audio that’s smooth to listen to. You can get a clean audio file which you can seamlessly mix with your video file. This is really one of the major benefits of hiring a professional voice actor. When you have a clean audio file that does not need mixing, the number of hours required to edit your project is greatly reduced.
Now that you know why you need to hire a professional voice actor, it’s time to find one. There are many voice over actors out there. Some of them do it full-time while some only do it as an additional source of income. If you ask us, we think that you should only hire people who do voice overs as a full-time job. Why?
For one, they would have a library where they keep files of all the jobs they’ve done. If you need to have a job redone a few years letter, you only need to go back to the actor and ask for modifications. With part-timers, you can’t be sure if they are organized or if they have the necessary equipment to do a better job.
Full-timers are also more available. They can do their BEST Voice Overs on weekdays and at locations that you specify. Part-timers will always prioritize their full-time source of income and thus may only be available on weekends.
Then there’s the matter of professional equipment (we mentioned this before). You need to have professional equipment to get a clean audio file. Professionals who have been doing the job invest heavily in their profession and have high-tech audio equipment for producing a high-quality audio file on top of their great-sounding voice. Part-timers may not have that kind of equipment.
So, when you’re ready send out a casting call to find full-time professional voice-over actors.
