Video Voiceover Subscriptions?

Why do content marketers constantly feel cold? They’re surrounded by drafts.

Hi! 

We've been making a lot of videos that require us to purchase voiceovers for each one - which can get expensive.

Does anyone know of any voiceover websites that offer subscriptions (similar to what you can find for background music, photos, etc.)?

Or, does anyone has experience finding one voiceover artist to become your company's voice? Or know where to look for one?

We're open to any and all ideas if anyone has run into this same problem.

Also not sure if this is the right group to post this in so let me know if I should post elsewhere!

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the tag Connor DeLaney Lex Russell do you mind posting your videos in a link below? I have used Fiverr in the past for these two videos: http://videos.berryinsurance.com/watch/nyhSEsawz43WXGoGxc6moX? and http://videos.berryinsurance.com/watch/Cg6yeDHk6XPfiXJmL52zka? 

The lines were pretty short, and it each ran about $30 - $40 per video. When it comes to Fiverr, the better the VO artist, the more expensive it will be. For these projects I just focused on finding someone who could stay in the range we needed to be in.

I know if you have one VO artist on fiverr you can "subscribe" to them for discounts on projects in the future. I would only recommend this as a long term investment. 

Another suggestion I have is to use https://www.backstage.com/ and put out a casting call to hire one person to be your voice for all your videos. 

It will most likely be cheaper to hire someone for regular VO work and paying them an hourly rate if you think this is a long term investment. I would also suggest potentially using SME's for VO (depending on the project). There would be no cost for that (kind of) There are certain sections in video where we just use an SME for VO: youtu.be

Hope this is helpful! Best of luck finding VO talent!

First of all, I love both those videos - so clever!

We usually don't mind spending a little more on our large property videos that we create for clients. Example here.

But, we're publishing a market spotlight series on our blog + videos and it will be a lot of voiceovers. Usually, our SMEs don't have time/don't want to do voiceovers for us unless they actually appear in the video.

Here is an example of one we just finished. Our videographer did the voiceover on this one. I thought it sounded nice but maybe not your typical voiceover voice.

I think our main issue is the voice between our client/property videos and our learning center videos is quite different. So it would be nice to use different voices between them from a subscription service that we could use long-term.

I’ll definitely check out fiverr - I think that might be promising for finding a long-term “voice of AQUILA.”

Thank you!!

Thank you for the kind words!

These are great and makes sense that you're using VO.

Fiverr will definitely have a great pool of talent.

Now that I know you're based in Austin, there are definitely some talented vocalists in that city(I'm thinking the music scene) so going local could also prove fruitful. Good luck!
