Are you now faced with a swarm of voice over agents calling and emailing you, sending you texts at all hours of the night? No!? How about video producers? No, again!? Really!?
Did you post all your many accomplishments back to childhood in your about page? Did you say how great your voice is and how much you can do for their videos? I hope not.
Look. We all want to be everything to everybody alll the time, even in our private lives. We want everyone to love us and what we do. It Ain't gonna happen.
If you want agents and video producers to take you seriously, you have to take yourself seriously.
- Practice reading out loud.
- Get some training / Hire a coach
- Get a demo made by someone who knows how to make one.
Practice tongue twisters.
Rodney Saulsberry and Susan Berkeley have some great twisters in their books. Neither one is expensive and there are more books available by other voice actor authors.
