Q&A: How do I choose a voice for my brand?
Choosing a voice to represent your brand and your company can be a challenge, but here are a few issues you need to look at before making your final decision.
What is your company like? Energetic and fun, or straight business? Friendly, professional, progressive, corporate, or laid-back? Many voice talents can adapt to a delivery style but some have a more natural tendency towards certain styles.
What is the age of your audience? If they’re young and trendy, it makes sense to choose a young voice they would associate with. Likewise, if you cater to an elderly clientele, make them feel comfortable with a voice that is trustworthy and age-appropriate.
What is the gender of your primary audience? This part is a little tricky and can vary wildly depending in your industry. If you have a lot of male clients, they may feel a stronger connection to a male voice talent. On the other hand, they might tune out a male and appreciate a female voice instead (and vice versa with female clients). Sometimes you can remedy this by using both a male and a female in an alternating style, to cover all your bases.
Here are a few keywords to think about when searching for the voice of your brand:
