Voiceover Actors That Sound Relatable To Your Target Audience.

Want to make a compelling audio ad? Something that hooks people in right out the gate. The script has to be convincing and attention-grabbing. It can help to mention the specific region that you’re advertising to. But the voiceover actors need to sound relatable to your target audience and authentic. People will tune out a cheesy-sounding stock standard radio voice ad.

Spotify Ad Studio creative tools and services include access to professional voice actors so that we can find a relatable voice for your target audience.

First, we will write a script. Next, we will add instructions for the voice actor to help them understand your ad’s emotion, tone, and speed.

We tell the voice actor who your target audience is and give them direction on how you want that audience to feel.

Our Approach

We begin by analysing your target market.

A few different variables can segment a target market. For example, consumers can be split by demographic, geographic, and behavioural factors.

Find your audience. Spotify Allows you to reach listeners by demographic, location, interests and activity targeting. We will refine and experiment with the elements of the audience targeting.

Device and Connectivity
Listening behaviours
Predicted Interest
Past Interactions

Depending on your goals and audience targeting, we will select the most suitable ad product for you. In some cases, this can be an experiment. Our in house content writers will write the script and work with the voice over actor to nail your message.

After all the research, targeting, and ad creation is complete, we will launch your campaign. We will measure the results and keep you updated on the performance and audience to track goals and optimise campaigns.
