What is the Difference Between Image Voiceover and Advertising Voiceover?
Brand image voiceover tells the story of the brand. Strong feelings are aroused in the customer by voicing the "brand name" or "brand slogan" in advertising videos such as commercials, promotional films, viral videos. Brand image voice usually voices the brand slogan or brand name in the last part of the advertising videos. Powerful and accurately targeted voiceover means a lot to an advertisement.
Advertising voiceover is the use of image, sound and written text used to deliver the advertisement message. Choosing the appropriate voice for the brand character and advertisement scenario can be summarized as the voice that brings the advertisement text to life. The difference between advertising voiceover and image voiceover is that the slogan or brand name is voiced by a voice that is identified with the brand in image voiceover. Image voiceover is short and distinctive.
To explain with an example, the Motorola brand would be the right model. The Motorola brand used the "Hello Moto" sound at the end of all its advertisements and created an image voiceover that reached all audiences. This slogan was the first thing that came to mind about the brand. When you examine Motorola advertisements, it is immediately noticed that the advertisement texts have different content, and the image voiceovers always remain the same despite the advertisements being voiced by different voices. In this respect, image voiceover has made the brand unique by distinguishing it from advertising voiceovers. Image sei, which strengthens the brand message, also contributes to the retention of advertising voices.
Determining the Brand Image Voice Character
In order for your brand to stand out from its competitors and remain in people's memory, the brand image sound must be catchy and distinctive. You have to choose the right voice that will reflect your brand's personality, help you connect with the target audience, and differentiate you. In the selection of the image voice-over character, the sector in which your brand is located, your target audience, the communication channels used by your target audience, and your brand values are important.
According to the researches, in the selection of brand image voiceover, mainly "bass voice" and other definitions "low voice", "full voice" are preferred. Bass sounds, which are found reassuring, characteristic and charismatic by people, are impressive in brand image voiceover selection. When requesting image voiceover for your brand, you should be careful not to confuse it with brand voice.
