VOICEOVER SCRIPT TIP: CONVERSATIONAL

Unless your script is for a formal project (like technical training), going conversational is usually best.

Why? Most people find it pleasing to listen to speech that sounds like a natural conversation… you know… like a friend talking to a friend.

One of the easiest ways to keep your script as conversational as possible is to use contractions. I’m talking about combining words like we do in natural speech.

I’M instead of I AM

DON’T instead of DO NOT

You get the idea. Here’s an example:

If you are looking to get more clients for your business,
wishing is not the best strategy.

This line reads much better when you use contractions:

If you’re looking to get more clients for your business,
wishing isn’t the best strategy.

Not only will contractions make your informational voice over scripts read better, but they’re nicer on the ear of listeners too.

VOICEOVER SCRIPT TIP: SOUND CHECK

Need an easy way to ensure a smooth voice over script that flows?

Read it aloud before sending it out for recording! It makes the difference between awkward and polished.

When you read your script aloud, you’ll notice things you may not notice when writing it, or reading it in your head. Look for:

  • Too many repeated words. (I once booked a three-sentence project. The person who wrote the script didn’t even notice the word “actually” was in every sentence. We took two out, and the script went from awkward to polished.)
  • Whether contractions would make your script sound more conversational and less formal. (“Don’t” vs. “do not”… “I’m” vs. “I am”.)
  • If some of the sentences are too long to get your point across. (If you have a sentence that is 50 words long, people will lose the point.)
  • Whether your script accomplishes its purpose. (To sell, to inform, to entertain, etc.)

Take a minute to read your script aloud before sending it out for recording. I promise… you’ll be so happy you did!

VOICEOVER SCRIPT TIP: PRICES

Read the following line from a voice over script out loud:

“All for the low price of $24.99.”

Which way did you read it?

“All for the low price of twenty-four ninety-nine,”

OR…

“All for the low price of twenty-four dollars and ninety-nine cents?”

Know where I’m going here? When you include prices in your voice over script (and you want the prices said a certain way by your voice actor), you’ll get the results you’re looking for on the first read if you write out the actual words.

More script tips later!
