Professional voice-over artists make it seem easy, but preparation is the key ingredient to success.  Success doesn’t begin the moment they’re standing in the booth, ready to perform. The road to success begins long before a voice talent shares their abilities with the world. As with anything else, their preparation plays a key role in their voice-over craft. These are a few tips that the professional voice-over artists at Leave Me On Hold use to ensure an amazing message for your company.

The Preparation of a Voice-Over Artist

“Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
Vince Lombardi

Voice-Over Preparation

  1. Becoming Familiar With Their Voice
    They take the time to record themselves reading through the script using a vast array of voices and variations of each character they may use. As they listen to the results, it is identified which voice and script results in a natural sounding character.
  1. Letting Others Be The Voice-Over Judges
    The toughest critics of our voice-over artists are themselves, but others may be able to identify nuances that they’ve missed. The artists play their recordings for us in the office and ask which one was most effective, which one was least effective, and why.
  1. They Are Led by Their Voices
    Voice-over professionals know it’s important to let their natural voice abilities lead the way rather than try to force a voice they can’t quite get. There’s always a perfect voice for the job and Leave Me On Hold has a vast array of voice-over performers for you to choose from.
  1. Practice Reading Out Loud
    One of the most important factors is that they are able to read clearly while effectively delivering the role. Our voice-over actors practice reading the script out loud multiple times to get a feel for the character and the situation.
  1. Study
    Our voice-over professionals receive the script beforehand and study it in-depth so they know it inside and out. They become familiar with the words, message, and the goal of what you’re advertising. Then, they practice reading at different speeds using a variation of tones and emotion. Once you find what works, it’s showtime!
