10 Questions to Ask About Voice Over Before You Buy That Shiny New Microphone

I’m relatively new to voice over and wanted share what you should do in the correct order if you’re considering going into the Voice Over field rather than stumbling along and wasting time, energy and money…like I did.

Before you run out to buy equipment or start building your sound booth, here are 10 questions you need to ask yourself first.

  1. Do you like the sound of your own voice?
  2. Do you plan on taking voice over classes?
  3. Do you have the self-discipline to work alone?
  4. Do you have a quiet space for recording?
  5. What type of voice over do you think best suits your talent and interest?
  6. Are you prepared for rejection?
  7. Do you have money to invest in equipment, classes, conferences, networking events?
  8. What experience do you have that sets you apart – not just voice over experience but ALL experience?
  9. Are you able to do your own marketing?
  10. Are you prepared to network or to reach out to businesses and people in your target genre to get work?

This is the introduction to a 10-part series where I’ll expand on each of the above questions to give you more insights and for you to feel really comfortable and confident about pursuing a voice over career.

Some of these are some pretty heavy duty questions but don’t worry. There’s more to come. The next topic is Do You Like the Sound of Your Own Voice?
