I’ve benefitted from it a lot already. I would love to hear you discuss how you best decide what to charge as a non-union talent. What steps do you go through to find a price for your VO that won’t scare clients away, but that will not short change what you could/should earn for the work? Jobs can vary greatly. I can get a request for a dance recital one day, and then be doing a few taglines for a website the next day. Do you charge by words? Minutes? Frequency of use? Can clients do what they want with it once you’re paid? Do you charge more if the client wants you to record and edit it for them and maybe even marry it with music? Thanks for your insights! Janet December 4 at 11:40 am Hey Terry, Congradulations on your success! Utilizing social networks is so important- I’m not surprised at all that you’re gaining business from it, it’s a direct way to make contact with clients and other voice over artists. The bigger presence you create for yourself on the internet the more likely you’ll be found for work- Great post! Nicole December 12 at 2:01 pm Im very very itrested i voice over work. Im very good at differet voiced too! please reply Kimi January 28 at 9:58 am I have no absolute proof…but I had auditioned for a job for Stephanie Ciccarelli from Voices.com. I had found her on twitter and had been following her and shortly after she followed me back. A week after the audition, I sent her a DM asking if the job had been filled. While I didn’t get a DM back, I did get an email saying that I was awarded the job. It’s possible that the DM put me over the top. She even mentioned that she realized it was me from my audition because my twitter avatar is the same picture on my Voices.com profile. She invited me to add her on Facebook and we have connected on Linked In as well. She’s an all around great person, but she also gave me a recommendation on the site. I’ve even connected with @SuchAVoice who’s also a great voice coach and wonderful person. Social media is GREAT for contacts. Every podcaster I know I have met thru Twitter, and they are responsible for my becoming a voice talent.

I started Officially doing Voice over work about 4 months ago, and have taken your advice and have searched all sorts of Voice Over sites and agencies. The agencies are a little slower to respond whereas the sites where they post your talent, respond quicker because their clients are the ones who choose you after hearing the Demos you upload. In the past, I Have been a award winning singer/songwriter/performer for many years and Music is very hard to conquer unless you have tons of money or friends in the biz (Of which I don’t have either!) But the Voice Over work has almost exploded in my face since I have started, I have done about 15 Voice over Jobs that have been used in TV or Personal CD distribution. I’m still getting my equipment together and I have you to thank for as far as what I need, How to go about it and getting beginner’s jobs. So Far so good my friend. Thank you so much for the Keys to the Kingdom of Voice Overs. Last week I was offered $250.00 for a spot that lasted about 15 minutes for a Stop smoking spot , and I was floored to be asked to do it and for the price they paid me. Thanks again!! Keep them Coming!! – David of “DVS” Voice Overs Debra Lockett March 19 at 12:31 am I have just stuck my figurative big toe in the pool of voice overs and thank you so much for the info. I am a bit of a tweet-er but look forward to getting better at both. Thank you for the helpful info! Noël May 29 at 2:20 pm Hi Terry, Appreciate as I see others also state, your willingness to share all there is about Voice Over work. As a new person getting started myself, any and all information is deeply appreciated as well as helpful so we don’t have to make the mistakes you may have made when you first started. I do have a question regarding Twitter. You showed that your received a job and recommnedation but how have you placed yourself on Twitter to have people contact you. I have made so many attempts at Twitter in getting the word out for things other than Voice Over work which also were extremely important, and it to me has been like throwing a snowball, into an oven or worse a Black Hole in outer space. I find that everyone on the social networking sites are all trying to accomplish the same thing and so it is like the Preacher, preaching a lesson to a Preacher for next Sunday’s service. If you understand what I am saying. So, would you have a follow up to your Twitter information just exactly what one needs to do, to get that exposure for possible future Voice Over Work. Thanks so very much. Noël Diane July 8 at 8:42 pm I have read everyone’s comments regarding voice over work and I am very impressed. I am trying to break into this type of work because I speak very well and love changing my voice. However, I get so confused with the various websites in trying to break into this line of business. If any of you could direct me to a good source or website, I would really appreciate it. I am very anxious to get started with this asap. Thanks! Comments are closed.
