Female friend (US) with good voice needs help . . .

12 replies
Hi - I have a close friend across the pond from me who (like many others) is staring redundancy in the face.

She has quite a good voice - not TV or radio quality by any means, but quite listenable to.

Can you guys think of anything that she could easily (she's not very computer literate) put her hand to? She's not excited by the likes of fiverr BTW!

Thanks

    Sorry I'd recommend Fiverr for starting out, its easy, scalable (relatively speaking), and will bring initial sales.

    If she's serious about voiceover than I'd recommend compiling a voiceover portfolio and a website and begin marketing her services on here. If she's not, I'm not sure what to tell you besides heading over to Fiverr and begin building up a profile.

    Well what I always thought about Fiverr is that it's a great way to get leads for bigger gigs.

    What I mean is that she can offer a 30-second voiceover for $4, and then when she delivers it, she can include her pricing for longer voiceover services.

    She should get some really good folks that will need much longer voiceovers and there she is getting leads for bigger gigs etc.

    Encourage her to get "computer literate", and/or help her to, if you can. Opens up a whole world of opportunity!!

    Have her try her luck on vworker.com or elance.com - sometimes people there are looking for simple voiceover work.

      With no experience or portfolio, tell her to get over herself. Seriously. She needs to have something to show - and something like fiverr may not get her rich over night but might build confidence in selling and give her some testimonials.

      It doesn't have to be forever.

    Phone sex.

    Kiding, sorta, aside.

    Tell her Fiver 30second deals are for practice.

    Beggars really can't be choosers. If she wants to break into IM, she'll just have to bear with working on these 'lowly' gig sites for the time being so that she can make a little money on the side, while learning about IM and more sustainable long-term strategies.

    She also shouldn't neglect the other gig sites similar to Fiverr - the more of these sites she can post her voice gigs on, the more she could potentially make.

    Video tutorials. Use screenshots of products and processes while she narrates.

    I REALLY like Voice123 and have ordered several jobs from them. You can check them out here:

    http://voice123.com/

    The jobs range from really professional to mid-level. There are higher quality requirements than what you'll find on Fiverr, but definitely worth taking a look.
