I think we all can agree that the year 2021 was nothing less than a wild ride for all of us. With the triumph of vaccines, the heartbreaks of new variants, and all the new questions associated with waves of COVID, we can firmly say we’ve all been through it!. Because of the chaos of 2021, the voiceover industry rolled with the punches and where a voiceover service was needed, we answered the call. In fact, we were so honored to deliver professional voiceover services to a variety of clients this year (both new and dearly beloved), and we are looking forward to many great things to come in 2022! So, here are a few predictions of professional voiceover needs that will be on the rise in the new year:
1. More VOIP Services for Local Businesses
One trend we see on the rise in the new year is more local businesses investing in professional voiceover services. In both 2020 and 2021, we saw a huge uptick in people frequenting their local businesses as opposed to big box chain stores… And we love seeing small businesses thrive! However, with this uptick in clientele (and the current supply chain still slower than usual), we suspect that more local businesses than ever before will seek out and see the benefit to using professional voiceover and VOIP services. Simple services such as on-hold messages, call-routing, and voicemail can be huge game changers for small businesses. And not only is it the smartest solution for the local business boom, but the right one to make to ensure that your brand is taking care of people when they need it most.
2. More Conversational Call-Routing
Speaking of smart moves, we foresee a big swing in more conversational tones and scripts in the new year, especially when it comes to call-routing. We’re predicting this trend because many people out there have grown tired of traditional call-route scripts, and because of this, they often automatically tune out (and that business might be lost). So, our solution to the problem is to make the script a little more fun! A fun, casual, and conversational script can be a game changer when it comes to dealing with the weary public. However, this doesn’t mean these call-route scripts won’t be professional. In fact, it takes a true professional voice talent to turn a casual and conversational script into something more trustworthy. We just know this trend is going to steal the hearts of every new customer at both small and big businesses alike! Trust us when we say that these conversational voiceover services will be exactly the mood everyone needs as we sail through this next year and into a brighter future.
3. A Growth in Translation Services
The last, but definitely not least, trend we foresee happening in 2022 is a growth in professional voiceover and translation services. This kind of voiceover trend is exactly what we need to get to that brighter future we’re all hoping for–and with the world currently still battling COVID, voiceover translators will be a huge asset to not only businesses, but the medical community as well to get people the information they need in real time. I mean, administrators and staff can use all the help they can get right now, and the more options for translation, the better chance we have of reaching a wider audience. No matter the language, our professional voiceover studio is ready to answer the call when it comes to this growing need.
