Voice over opportunities in the telephony niche

Voice over opportunities in the telephony niche

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. Just a note about how much I appreciate the inside tips you offer. I can’t think of anywhere else, or any other business, that offers this kind of insight into what it takes to succeed in a particular business. Thanks Susan.

  2. Thanks for the video spot on a niche I am hoping to build qualifications for. I look forward to working with you on this.


  3. Thank you Susan.These are great tips on a niche I’m very interested in pursuing. Good point about this being a different type of buyer, that had not occurred to me. I’ll be researching this further as far as where to find these opportunities.

  4. This is an interesting niche, telephony. Since as you say, Susan, this a more of “technology channel” to land this type of gig, where do you suggest exploring?

  5. Thank you Susan! I just landed my 1st Phone Prompt Client that basically paid for all my recording resources to date. Was time consuming, but fun and I even get a kick out of calling the number after hours to get some giggles from my friends, terrific niche, and look forward to more!

    Thanks for your videos, they are a benefit to us independent VO geeks and keeps us on our toes, and on the look out for new business.
