When looking for a Voiceover artist you will need to decide on a budget - what can you afford?
What is reasonable to pay for the voice talent themselves, a studio, editing and maybe agents fees too.
You can pay a few quid or you can pay thousands, especially if the audio is to be used online on a large corporation's website.
There are thousands of voices to choose from and the choice (like anything these days) can be mind-blowing and actually make a decision harder.
But there is just one very important thing to bear in mind.
This voice - your chosen voice - will be the voice of your product.
They will be the voice of your telephone system.
They will be the voice of your product on TV in front of millions of people.
So what does that voice say to you? What qualities does that Voiceover Artist have? And do you want those qualities associated with your product?

Using the wrong voice could cost you customers and your reputation.
The most suitable voice for your project may seem a little more expensive at first, having great samples, sounding natural, and obviously appearing to have more experience.
Even if hiring this Voiceover artist may take you over budget to begin with, you may find they are worth it and all the extra business they will help to bring your way.
