How to Buy Voice Over

The right voice is more than just a detail; it's the pivotal to the success of your content. It has the power to elevate your work from, “I saw it” to “I shared It”, drawing in your audience, or it can be the reason your content is passed over without a second thought and ad budget wasted. Being a voice talent myself, I wanted to put down what I’ve learned so far, to try and provide some value to those, “on the other side of the glass”.

In the following blogs, I’ve done my best to distill all my best tips to help you with your next casting, offering insights to steer clear of the pitfalls and streamline your search for a voice that not only fits but amplifies your project's appeal.

Designed to resonate across a wide gambit of media projects, from national commercials to the specific needs of e-learning modules, I wrote these guides so that even if your particular niche isn’t covered, the advice remains relevant and helpful. Thanks for reading and thanks for helping keep the lights on here at DCVO, I couldn’t be more grateful.
