Did you know a voice actor can help you solve your COVID-19-induced advertising crisis? 

No, seriously!

COVID-19 lockdown

As the Coronavirus continues to sweep across the globe forcing people into their homes, more and more businesses are grinding to a halt. Many of them are smaller businesses that simply don’t have the resources to remain closed for long. 

Consequently, not only are these businesses battling to adapt to a remote work environment for themselves and their teams practically overnight, but they’re also struggling because their go-to marketing agencies have shut their doors to comply with lockdown regulations.

Have we just accurately described your current predicament?

Are you wondering how you’ll stay top-of-mind with your target audience if you’re unable to get your regular audio ads professionally written, recorded, professionally packaged, and broadcast-ready?

Then let us say this again: a voice actor can help you solve your COVID-19-induced advertising crisis.


Because pro voice actors are often a whole lot more than just a voice.

Everything you need

First of all, let’s take a closer look at your problem.

To produce a mastered radio ad that includes sound effects and music, you need:

  • A scriptwriter.
  • A production manager.
  • A qualified sound engineer with the required, sophisticated software plugins. 
  • Someone with a library of sound effects. 
  • A music supervisor with a library of suitable music

Well — don’t you?

Sure you do.

So chat to the voice actor you booked to record your script. 

Voice123’s voice actors can do it all!
