A Career in Voice Over: Where to Start?

VOIP for telephony

There’s nothing we love to see more than when new voiceover artists step into the limelight and truly begin to develop their talent. After all, there is always room for more voices to belong in the world, not less. We’ve got a couple of surprising places that you might not think of to start practicing and honing your voice prompts for VOIP telephony:

  1. Car Dealerships

voice prompts for car dealerships

Professional voicemail greetings for car dealerships are a perfect place to start practicing your “on-air” voice. The scripts are usually short and simple. There are plenty of examples out in the world for you to listen to and practice back, and let’s face it, the world will continue to need more cars and car dealerships. The relationship between car dealerships and VOIP is a tale as old as time, so get your practice on and get to work!

2. Local Retailers

on hold messages for retailers

If we stood here all afternoon and named you the TYPES of retailers that used voice prompts for VOIP telephony…. well, we could be here until well into the evening. That being said, on hold messages for retailers are always in high demand. The prompts are highly accessible and you can easily call up your favorite store and listen to their voicemail: is it a professionally recorded greeting? If not, how can you tell? By listening to lots of examples of what works and what doesn’t from your favorite retailers, you’ll be able to come up with the exact professional voice that will put your voiceover style over the top.

We’re always looking for new talent, particularly voiceover translation services, so please feel free to send us your demo today! Maybe you could be the next member of the Worldly Voices talent team!
