If you have an accent and you’re looking for some extra income on the side and maybe English is just not your first language, how can you make some additional money?
With your voice it’s exactly what I’m doing right now I’m speaking to you.
So there’s a lot of people that are interested and need people who do voice overs so here’s for example:
If you look at Fiverr.com there’s a voice over service that people do and perform.
It will record an American English mail voice over or English voice over and record a male American English voice over and even some that are Italian or female based or even some German.
So there’s a lot of different voice overs that people are interested in and you can see by the reviews that there are many people who are interested in this kind of thing.
By using your voice you’re able to record from different commercials.
You can do a lot of different things to be able to make some additional side income and you don’t even have to worry about your accent because if you take a look at just the German side of things you can see that even some of these people have 1000 just for the reviews.
So it just goes to show that you can make some additional income just by using your voice and speaking into the microphone and you might even just have to read it from the script you don’t even have to show your face.
Let’s take a step-by-step approach on how to this:
Step one is to get a decent microphone.
So what microphone should you get?
You can grab something like a blue yeti or audio technica 2020.
I’ll link a few other microphones in the description and on this page as well.
Step two is record a few sample clips.
There are a few programs out there and what you can do is search for it; it’s called audacity.
It’s free so you can record some sample clips of whether you’re doing commercials or those types of voice overs so that way you have a portfolio; people will know how your voice sounds.
You don’t need a ton of experience.
If you can be a little more animated at different points then that would be great but just record with what you got.
Next step sign up to Fiverr and build up your account profile.
It may take you a month or two to be able to get some gigs.
Fiverr has become busier so there’s a lot of people out there.
So as the best way you could do to stand apart is just follow the procedures and guidelines outlined in Fiverr such as nice thumbnails, good description, be transparent and of course at the beginning you might need to really sacrifice on price until you get your things going.
It just comes down to customer management, working with a person and fulfilling their needs and personal desires of what is it that they’re looking for when it comes to kind of a voice over.
