How to Get Started With Voice Over Work

Posted on in Web Tutorials


If you have a good voice then maybe you have considered finding some voice over work. Usually it's not very easy, but with the steps outlined here you will quickly and effortlessly find some great voice over work.

The first and most important thing is to know where you're going. How do you see yourself 5 or 10 years from now in the voice over industry? Do you want to be a VO agent or perhaps do VO for cartoons? No matter what your dream is, big or small, you have to believe in it and know what you want.

After you've got that covered, you have to know where you start from. If your voice is not that great, you can get some voice over training. This will help you greatly. You need to start small and let others know about your voice. For example, record yourself on a demo CD recreating existing radio commercials.

After that you'll have to find some work. You can search the internet for voice over work and you'll find many sites that connect voice over agents with people that need a voice. It's not that hard, and if you're really good you will achieve your goal in no time. In addition, finding work over the internet is easier because you can get connected with any part of the world … as opposed to offline work where you're limited to your city.

There is also lots of good advice on the internet on how to get started in this industry. Tons of tips, useful advice and lessons from people with years of experience in the voice industry, all available for free.

As a last tip I want to say this: There are not many people doing VOs … but those who do, get hired repeatedly. And that's because they are good at what they do. To be a good voice over agent you need to work hard on your voice.
