Voice Actors For Political Spots
Voice Actors For Political Spots
It’s estimated that political spending for the 2019-2020 election season will top $1 billion for the first time. Are you looking to hire professional voice actors for political spots that stand out? The talented voice actors of Blue Wave Voiceover can help your campaign succeed.
Whether you need an authoritative and serious tone for an attack ad or an upbeat and inspiring voiceover to educate viewers about your candidate in an image spot, you’ll be able to find the political voice actor you’re looking for.
Changing platforms for political ads
When choosing which voice actor is the best to tell your story, it’s important to consider where your campaign’s spots will be running. The two platforms that rake in the most political ad spending are TV and Facebook. A third of American households do not pay for traditional TV anymore, but many older voters – who are typically reliable voters who get to the polls – still do. If you’re looking for voice actors for TV ads, you can search our performer database to find someone with the right kind of TV experience. If Baby Boomer and senior citizen voters are your target on TV, we have some excellent mature adult voice actors for you to choose from. If you’re targeting younger members of the electorate in ads on streaming platforms, check out our youthful Millennial & Gen Z or Generation X voice actors.
Older voters are also heavy Facebook users – but if you’re looking to reach a younger group, the social networking site also lets ad buyers target very specific demographics. As political advertising has been banned on platforms like Twitter and Spotify, Facebook also hasn’t put as many restrictions on political ads.
Google and YouTube are also popular platforms for political spots with voice actors because they reach a different set of voters than TV and Facebook. YouTube can also be a good place for campaigns to “test out” ads before paying more to place them on traditional TV channels. Since the average American spends over 6.5 hours online every day, campaigns can use internet-based platforms to reach all kinds of voters where they are through pre-roll internet ads. Google did update some things about their political advertising policy in November of 2019, which you can read here.
Other modern ad platforms include Snapchat, Pandora, Hulu, Instagram, podcasts, web pre-roll videos, TikTok, Pluto TV and Sling TV. Even if you’re advertising a local or regional campaign, candidate or issue, you can use these national and international services to target voters only in your area.
Finding authentic voice actors
Authenticity is also important when crafting an effective campaign ad. You don’t have to choose the same kind of “announcer” voice actor we heard in political ads twenty years ago. The American electorate is rich and diverse. It’s important to consider that when choosing the right voice actor for your message.
