With the demand for talented voice actors increasing, the new guide from Voices gives practical advice with eight steps that aspiring voice actors can follow to pursue a career in this field.

The new guide provides advice about what an individual needs to do to become a voice actor who can then audition, record, and perform voice over work with a home studio setup and a talent profile on Voices. The guide warns, however, that freelance voice actors often spend more time looking for jobs than actually doing the work.
Since getting voice over work is often a matter of training, this guide recommends that a potential voice actor take classes in voice over, either online or in person, before investing in equipment for a home studio.
A potential voice actor should practice reading out loud, whether alone or with a friend, and use intonation during the practice. Further, a voice actor should exercise deep breathing from the diaphragm so that they have control over their breath for optimal voice performance.
More advice in this guide suggests that a new voice actor build their portfolio by volunteering their voice to charities or nonprofit events. At the same time, networking with other voice actors in conferences and online communities is an important way to find out about opportunities and to get referrals from fellow voice actors.
Once a person is ready to perform voice over work, they should produce a professional voice over demo that is free of extraneous sounds like an air conditioning going on and off.
A new voice actor should not audition for every job that comes along, but they need to do everything possible to keep their name in front of potential clients who have jobs that fit their voice and brand. That means being persistent and following up after submitting an audition.
Registering for a Voices talent account will get their name in front of potential clients, have their talent marketed globally, and give them access to Voices’ job board. With over two million members in 160 countries, the award-winning online voice over marketplace has been connecting companies with voice talent since 2005. It’s proprietary technology ensures clients a safe and seamless hiring experience.
