Getting into the game

When it comes to getting heard in today’s world, it’s becoming increasingly harder. Equipment is becoming cheaper, and more readily available. Then you have to learn how to use it, store it and replace it as it gets older. For some it’s an amazing investment into a craft they can hone.

But what if that’s not you?

What if you are a small business owner and just need a little help sounding professional? Is it worth it to invest the time and money to do it on your own?

You Have Options

There’s a couple of things you can do. It’s based mostly off the strategy you choose to eat this particular whale. So you have to look at all of its parts.

Overview/Purpose

You have to know what your content is going to do, right? You already know if you want to make a podcast or a commercial. You know how you want to reach people. Chances are you already know a little bit of what you want to say.

So Let’s Cover Format

So, let’s say you want to make a tiktok for your house that you’re selling. You know you want to narrate it and you already videoed a walkthrough on your phone.

So you know your time limit, the medium and topic. Easy enough you could probably just post that with out any editing and do fine. But you want a little more, pizzazz! And you notice that your audio is echoing in your empty house… because it’s for sale. You need to figure out how to narrate it.

Everything You Could Ever Need

Chances are you have a piece of equipment, in your hand, that would make a sixties film maker wanna cry. So you have a wonderful piece of equipment. You can just go to a quiet room and record your voice with the same thing you shot the video on. your phone.

It’s True What They Say

You get what you pay for. Meaning that if you want to sound really good, you might need a better microphone. Something that picks up more of the frequencies in the human voice. Whatever that means… All you know is that Beyoncé wouldn’t have had a hit, if she sang “Single Ladies” into her iPhone.

Now We’re Cooking With Fire!

You do truly have all the tools you need right at your fingertips. You can just hop on TikTok do some quick swipes, hit “upload” and off you go with your day. However your house is half of a million dollars, maybe you could put a little more effort into it.

That means using a desktop. Now we start to leave the realm of free, and it is so worth it! Suddenly you can add effects, add your own custom typography, use 6 different fonts and really make yourself sound like Morgan Freeman.

Well you could if you spent thousands of dollars on a powerful enough desktop, and took the time to learn the software.

Or…

You could hire someone who has invested time and money into the equipment and software, and the sky’s the limit. You could hire a freelance professional, or someone on Fiverr, who might do a decent job adding your recording in the quiet room to the video you shot. That’s a pretty cheap option, with relatively good results.

The Next Option

You could find a recording studio that could make you sound like butter. They may even do it for a couple hundred bucks, all the way up to a couple of grand… depending on their equipment and credentials.

Let’s Dream BIG!

Let’s say you want to make your house look like a million bucks. There’s an agency near you that can produce a true Hollywood inspired production. Plus they’ll only charge you 25k to make it happen.
