Is there a place for you in telephony voice overs?

Is there a place for you in telephony voice overs?

Once I was the unfortunate victim of identity theft.

The creeps opened a bunch of AT&T mobile accounts in my name and then had the unmitigated gall to not pay the bill.

I discovered the problem when the automated collection calls started coming… in my voice.

Yes, I was the automated voice of the AT&T call center and I gave myself lots of options, except there was no button to press for identity theft much less for a human being who could help.

I hung up and tried again, and again and again, and eventually got a live representative.

She made a note in my record to clear my name and gave me a list of places to call, including the credit reporting agency.

I called them and got…my voice.

Welcome to the telephony voice over niche. It’s actually a great niche (this unfortunate incident aside), and I’ve built a long and profitable career out of serving these customers.

So how do you get started? What does it take to be a great telephony voice?

That’s the subject of this week’s Inside Voice Over training video.

Here’s what Bootcamp grad Agnus Gunn had to say about the experience:

“I participated in one of The Great Voice Company’s weekend Voiceover Boot Camps at the end of 2016. The experience was fantastic. It persuaded me that this voiceover dream that I’ve wondered about for so many years could indeed become a reality.. You emerge with a clear road map for advancing your voiceover career. It’s up to you what you do with that toolbox but the Boot Camp definitely equips you with everything you need. All of this is somehow achieved in the span of a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend. Considering the quality and extent of the instruction, the Boot Camp is a bargain. If you’re looking for the right on-ramp into voiceover, The Great Voice Company’s Voiceover Boot Camp is second to none. Just do it!”

  1. Thank you for sharing this info Susan. I was not aware of this niche being so potentially lucrative, but it does make sense that it would be. I am an actor/singer-songwriter and have done voice-over work sporadically over the past 40+ years, but have not yet fully committed to a career as voice-over artist. I have been fortunate to have had a very interesting and eclectic career in the arts, but I can see a time coming when working at home rather than out on the road will be preferable. Thank you again for sharing your expertise to provide options and opportunities for us.

  2. Susan.. this sounds great…Who do I contact for this type of niche? Is there a special website? I’d like to get more familiar with it.

  3. I’ve found singers do very well in voice over because of their good ear and sense of timing. Good luck, Chris!
