Selecting Voice Talent for your IVR survey is a key consideration, as she/he will be representing your company; she/he is your spokesperson. As well, she/he should have experience in recording prompts for IVR surveys, as the pace, pronunciation, and intonation is important to keep the caller engaged. Before you select Voice Talent, ask to listen to a sample, and remember, just because she/he may have broadcast experience that doesn’t necessarily mean they will know how to engage a caller on a survey. Listen to a sample survey recording, first and foremost, you want someone who makes the survey flow, and is easy to understand.
