Voiceover is a “people tell me” industry. As in, when I meet people who aren’t voice actors they say, “People tell me I have a great voice, and that I should do voiceover.”
But voiceover so much more than having a great voice and talking into a mic:
You have to learn to act.
You have to take direction.
You have to make every script relatable and interesting…even if that script is an elearning module where you recite industry regulations.
You have to constantly market.
You have to find ways to be noticed.
Because there are a lot of great voices out there who don’t do those things, and being discovered is not a strategy for success.
