How Do I Find Voice Talent?

Searching for voice talent online can be a daunting task. Finding the right voice talent to represent your company, product or project is important. It’s part of the branding process that has become a standard in today’s fast paced world. As humans we tend to recognize and associate the sounds we hear to the brands we know trust. Try this experiment… say these words out loud “Your In Good Hands With…” – our brains fill in the blanks and we visualize a deep strong voice. That comes with years of hearing repetitive slogans and a deep masculine voice to match. Since the 1950’s companies like Allstate Insurance have known the importance of branding. Their choice to find a voice talent that would symbolize strength and security has paid off. After all, that’s what they were trying to convey.
