More about Conversational Voices
Acting natural requires years of dedicated practice. It isn't enough to just come across casually; you need personality too. A true conversationalist can make a chat about the weather into a relaxed, engaging and interesting conversation.
Authenticity is the beating heart to the conversational tone. Sounding down-to-earth and relatable is more than coming off as cool. It instils trust and allows your audience to identify with the message and feel a connection.
Conversational voices get an audience hooked because it feels like the speaker is uniquely targeting them. It is a personal exchange that feels more like a direct engagement than a broadcast.
What is a Conversational tone?
A standard method of delivering voice content is a monologue, where the voice expresses their thoughts aloud. For the conversational tone, this is inherently tricky. After all, a conversation consists of two or more people. Success in this format is to present the monologue almost as if it is one half of a conversation. This spurs thoughts of responses in the viewer's mind - a brilliant way to keep them hooked on your every word.
Even if your promotional piece consists of two voices conversing with each other, the charisma exuded by the voice artist will make the talk a joy for the audience to behold - keeping them engaged with the advertisement.
A conversational tone can use a variety of tricks to sound smoother. Frequently employing colloquialisms to put the listener at ease and interjecting the flow can provide a more casual feel. Although this may not appeal to corporate projects as much, a more formal lexicon may be better for professionalism.
The overall objective is to help the audience let down their defences and feel comfortable with your speaker. Ensuring your message become evermore poignant in their minds whilst matching the stylistic choice of your project.
Allowing the audience to feel involved in your messaging is tricky. Many amateur voices will fail to balance the conversational tone with the professional messaging. Our catalogue of talented voice actors are experts in reconciling a message's tone with its purpose.
