I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
2009 presented me with an opportunity to discover my “career/life goal” when a voiceover company was hosting a workshop at a local college. After previous years of wondering how to utilize my love for character voices and accents, this one little workshop and later professional training, changed my life and pointed me down the path of professional voiceover. Since money was tight, I spent the next year working on building my home studio, creating a business plan, learning new software(s), and practice, practice, practice, with little or no budget. My first gig was for ID’s and promos for a radio station in Dunedin, New Zealand. That project sealed the deal and I knew from then on that this is was I “want” to do! As of now, I’m searching for that “niche” and any advice on marketing and promotion at the pro’s can share.

Hi Ben!

Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!

Looking for some fresh ways to market yourself? Should you be on a Pay-To-Play site? Do you need an agent? Want some creative inexpensive ways to get the word out on you? How can you maximize your current client relationships? How do you find your niche? We're all either asking these questions or have some insight.

I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
