I’m not sure why anyone would turn on their laptop microphone and do a terrible job narrating a professional video or audio track for their business. Adding a professional voice and soundtrack is inexpensive, simple and the talent out there is amazing.
While you may be tempted to go look up a contractor on any number of directories, BunnyStudio is targeted directly towards companies that need professional audio assistance with their audio ads, podcasting, movie trailers, video, phone system attendants, or other audio projects. They offer access to thousands of freelance voice actors in multiple languages that are pre-vetted.
The site offers you the opportunity to filter and query the talent they have for voiceovers, writing, video, design, or even transcription. You can choose to book the talent you find, accept someone who can turn around the project quickly, or even run a contest between a few voice-over talents so that you can pick the winner yourself! Just select the service, the language, and the number of words in your script and you’re ready to go:
- Browse voice over samples – Search the database of voice actors, check their samples, and select the one best suited for your project.
- Submit your project brief – Send your project information. The more detail you can provide, the better they can understand your needs.
- Receive your ready-to-use voice over – Approve and download your ready-to-use, quality-controlled voice over or request a revision.
I’d used the platform in the past with some work (they were previously known as VoiceBunny) and returned today to get a new voice-over for our podcast, Martech Zone Interviews. Within an hour I had a perfectly executed voice-over that I’m now using in my next episode.
Here’s the podcast intro:
Here’s the podcast outro:
Side note… the speed of that return was most likely because it was a small project with less than 100 words… I believe their speed option is for less than 12 hours on most projects.
The platform also allows you to build your own workbench of voice-over talent that you’ve used before and wish to use again… a great feature for companies who wish to maintain some consistency to their audio branding!
The platform also offers an API for companies who wish to incorporate voice-over and audio post-production projects into their product or service. And, for large organizations, you can contact BunnyStudio for high-volume projects or services that require specific formats, or complex deliverables.
