It’s hard for me to wrap my head around this but as the telephone voice of Citibank, millions of people hear my voice every month.
I guess you could say I am one of the most listened to voices in America.
Nobody sets out to become a famous telephone voice, at least I didn’t. It’s not glamorous and the work can be tedious at times
But I’m not complaining. I love my work!
Over the last two decades I’ve recorded close to a million voice prompts for my customers; from the phrases you hear when calling telephone banking, to the phrases I hope you’ll never hear on the irritable bowel hotline. Alas, that was my voice too.
But don’t let it fool you.
Telephone voice overs -also known as voice prompts, telephony or interactive voice response(IVR)- is a fantastic voice over niche with the potential for lots and lots of repeat business.
Once your voice is embedded in a phone system, clients come back again and again for changes and updates and those fees can really add up.
But doing great telephony voice overs is not as easy as it looks. There are some best practices you should know before you even attempt to break into this potentially profitable niche.
As always, I’ve got your back.
