Intros and Outros (and Bumpers)

  • for any kind of presentation:
    podcast
  • video
  • webcast
  • MOBILE DJ show
  • sales presentation
  • training presentation

A fully-produced introduction (also known as an open, opening or intro) helps you start your presentation professionally, giving you more credibility with listeners, and getting the listener primed -- even excited -- before you start to talk. And an outro (also known as an ending, finish, close, or closing) is a professional way to wrap up your presentation with credits and an invitation for listeners to visit your website and social media accounts to learn more about you. Intros and outros are great for podcasts, videos, webcasts, training and sales presentations, live shows (ex: a mobile DJ show) -- just about anything where you need to be introduced to an audience.

Need 30-second video opening for your presentation? See our Video Intros.

 

Intro

(an opening or introduction)

Here's what you get:

• 30-second audio intro (or use it as an outro) for your podcast, video, webcast, radio or television show or other presentation with our voice talent and production music.

• Provide us with your script and we'll do the rest! We believe you know the content of your presentation better than anyone else. So we leave the writing to you. The length of the open and close can be up to 75 words each.

SAMPLE SCRIPT (Feel free to use it and modify it):

30-second Podcast Intro (30 seconds or up to 75 words): Podcasting from Austin, Texas -- the live music capital of the world and home to the world's largest urban bat population, country music singer Willie Nelson, and the University of Texas -- this is The Bike Show, a weekly podcast about bikes and the people who ride them. And now here's your host, author and bike expert -- Bob Johnson!

Stumped on what to write? It's always nice to tell people where you're podcasting from some information about your show, and the name of the host(s).

30-second Podcast Outro:
Thanks for listening to The Bike Show with Bob Johnson. If you like what you just heard, we hope you'll pass along our web address -- thebikeshow.com -- to your friends and colleagues. Be sure to check out our archive section on our website for previous podcasts. This has been a Bob Johnson Production. Join us next time for another edition of The Bike Show.

Note: We allow you to count your web address (www.yourwebsite.com) as just one word.

If you have more than 75 words you need us to produce, see our General Voiceover section for 60-second and full-length audio.

• Choose either Jack or Cathy (she does North American and British accents). Tell us which voice you want on our Script and Instructions form --- which you receive automatically via email immediately after you've made your purchase. We'll get started as you soon as we receive your script and instructions. You'll also have the opportunity on the form to give us further guidelines on the voice delivery (for example: serious, smile, tongue-in-cheek, sexy. laid-back, slow pace, medium pace, fast pace, relaxed, excited).
