Promoting Your Voice Acting Services Online
Ever wondered how “popular” Internet voiceovers managed to get so popular? Ever wondered how “untalented” (if not downright horrid) voiceovers end up in big projects? I wondered how too and if there's one thing they both have in common, it's their ability to market themselves. Somehow, some way, those voiceovers made themselves marketable and opportunities just came their way. In a word: Networking. Ask any active professional voiceover how they're still working and I'll guarantee you that networking plays a big role in how they find and book gigs. So, this guide is gonna help those who could use some help figuring out how to market themselves online.
Now, I held off making this guide for the longest while since (1) these are mainly trade secrets “reserved for those who actually figured things out”
That said, let me lay down some ground rules since they can be found in every single one of these tips and not following them would be counterproductive to your efforts anyhow.
Got that? You better. Making yourself marketable and doing it well isn't easy, especially the psychological aspects regarding how your actions affect others, otherwise everyone would be “popular”. Every action has consequences, so you best be prepared for whatever is coming to you whenever you do something.
