The Dreaded Question
Last week I had multiple students (from newb to 10+ years of experience) ask me the exact same question...
Can you help me find voiceover clients?
This is the #1 question I'm asked at webinars, conferences, podcasts, and private coaching sessions by voice actors of all experience levels. And I always answer the same way...
As a voiceover business & marketing consultant, It is not my job to find you clients. It's my job to explain how the voiceover casting process works and give you the tools to help you find your own clients.
BTW any voiceover coach who says they can help you find clients is full of crap. I will say that there some high-end demo producers out there who will introduce you to certain agents and production companies once you produce a demo with them, but that is one of the few exceptions.
So how DO I Find Voiceover Clients?
There is no easy answer. Well, that's not necessarily true...
The easiest place to find voiceover clients are on Pay-To-Play sites. Whether you can actually book any gigs from said potential clients AND get a fair rate is another question.
Another place to find voiceover clients is via agents & managers. Whether you can land a quality agent AND book auditions is another question.
Tip Of the Week
Every audition, cold call, email, blog post, etc. is an investment in your voiceover career. Ergo, make sure both the tools you use and the content you create has value.
