How To Create a Great Voice Over For TikTok

The video-sharing app TikTok has rapidly grown in recent years, enabling users to create and share short-form videos on any topic of their choice. For the most part, this platform is mobile-based.

According to the latest figures from TikTok, the app has been installed no fewer than three billion times, with a billion active monthly users, up from 133 million at its launch in 2018. This makes it a compelling and exciting tool, regardless of the message you want to convey.

How To Use Voice Overs on TikTok

There is huge scope for filmmakers to showcase their creativity in the app's editing suite by adding filters, stickers, sound effects, background music, and voiceovers to their videos.

The latter is perhaps the most straightforward way to engage the platform's viewers, whether you're an individual, a creative, or a corporate brand. It could give you a myriad of additional views.

You can use voiceovers to:

  • Narrate stories which are otherwise visual
  • Get viewers to sing along to a much-loved song
  • Create instructional content
  • Enhance your clip with voice extras including modification – you can sound like anything from a chipmunk to a baritone!
  • Add jokes or explanations to lend your clip a more personalised feel

How to Record or Upload a Voice Over on TikTok

You can find the white mic icon tool, along with several other popular options such as Effects, Stickers, and Text, in the drop-down menu located on the right side of your screen. The Voiceover option is the second to last on the list.

To create extra content that will go over the visual element, record your video as usual, and then use the voiceover tool. You can upload pre-recorded voiceovers, and we can assist you with this process. After uploading, review your video with the voiceover added, and make sure to uncheck the option to keep the original sound.

Once you are satisfied with your voiceover, click Save, and you are ready to post your content.

The Benefits of TikTok Voice Overs

There are plenty of powerful reasons for adding voice overs to your TikTok content.

  • Improve Your Content - Voiceovers are one of the best ways of creating rich content for the TikTok platform. They can enhance the power of your storytelling, and can boost brand recognition.
  • Help Explain Your Product or Service - You clearly already understand in great detail what you offer, but does your target audience? You could devise an explanatory pamphlet running to several pages – or you could create a TikTok tutorial that could convey the same information in 30 seconds.
  • It keeps your content fresh - The advertising ‘noise’ is louder than ever as brands compete and attention spans get increasingly shorter. A voiceover keeps your content distinctive.

Writing Your TikTok Voiceover Script

While it may be challenging to know where to begin, writing a voiceover script for TikTok is similar to penning any other content. Understand your target audience and the purpose behind creating your film.

To ensure that the accompanying audio and video work in harmony, it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of your video content. You will likely need to edit your work a few times to achieve this.

Additionally, your script should be easy to understand, concise, and distinguishable from similar content already available online. It is essential to end your audio with a compelling call to action.
