Businesses wanting to sound like ‘one of the big boys’ are now able to use the same professional voice actors that are featured across hundreds of national radio and television commercials. The Voice Realm launched the new service last week to simplify the task of finding professional voice actors online.
It used to be that hiring a professional voice talent involved using an expensive voice over agent. On top of agent’s fees were the hiring of the recording studio and engineer, and then having to pay residuals every time the recording was broadcast. All of this was way out of most small to medium sized businesses budget.
The Voice Realm’s new casting service feature has simplified and streamlined the process and inadvertently saves clients time and money. In just a few mouse clicks the automated service casts a wide net amongst a large talent pool to find voice over talent, who record a custom mp3 demo to make it easier for the client to make a selection.
In a first for online voice casting websites, rates are set, clear and consistent. This meaning the user doesn’t have to experience confusion and frustration sorting through hundreds of different rates and terms proposed by voice talents.
Kurt Myers, The Voice Realm’s business development manager explains that the new option was six months in the making. “From when the site launched in March 2012 we continually sought feedback from our clients to find out how we could make their job as simple as possible, without affecting the quality of voiceover artists the site presents to them. In less than five minutes they’ll have sent out a casting notice which traditionally would have taken a whole day to complete. Within an hour they’ll have custom mp3 demos to listen to.”
The service is free with no hidden fees or obligation. Rates are clear and there are no residuals to ever pay.
Hundreds of voice talent are listed on the site and due to the broad range of accents, dialects and languages, clients are certainly sure to find something that suits their need.
