Bev Standing Infomercials
It is Time to Sell, Sell, Sell!
An infomercial is different than a normal commercial, ad, or even an explainer video. It is trying to sell a product, like a commercial, but has much more time to do it in, and the voiceover performance for an infomercial is one of the most important factors in its success.
The extended length of an infomercial is a double edged sword. While the extra amount of time allows the narrator more room in which to explain the product, how it works, and why people should buy it, it also runs the risk of losing the attention of the audience due to its length. So how does a marketer combat the modern attention deficiency problem? It starts in the writers room and ends behind the mic of the voice over actor.
Stand Out From the Crowd With Your Infomercial
There are certain qualities of infomercials that are hallmarks of the market. They are exciting, they are high energy, and they teeter right on the line of being a little cheesy and over the top. This is, of course, purposeful in order to exaggerate the usefulness of the product and make the information in the infomercial stick in the mind of the consumer. In the age where commercials and ads can go viral, and also therefore the product being sold, being memorable is the aim of the game.
There are many different strategies for infomercials to achieve memorable status. When selling a product, they also are selling an experience, and bold visuals paired with the narration are often used to enhance the feeling of that experience. It starts with the negative. The frustrating experience that everyone has had with a sub par product. The narrator asks the audience, “We have all been here right? Don’t you hate it?” or something to that effect. In this crucial beginning of the infomercial, the narrator needs to grab the audience’s attention while appealing to their frustrations. It is all part of the build up; the grand reveal of the product that will take that negative experience and turn it around. The voiceover needs to do that with enthusiasm, trustworthiness, and a hole bunch of bravado.
Then it happens, in a burst of color and excitement the product that is going to change the consumer’s life is revealed. Now the narrator needs to bring the energy and be able to convey that energy without shouting. Despite everything that is going on in an infomercial, the narration still needs to be clear, easy to understand, and communicate crucial pieces of information to the audience.
To finish off, the narrator gets to explode with enthusiasm about the product, all its features, and how easy it to so use in order to showcase it to the audience and convince them that they simply cannot go another day without it in their lives. No shyness here, the narrator needs to be bold and skilled to pull it off.
