25 Things You Never Knew A Voice-Over Artist Does

I just told you (previous post) how important advertising your skills and product is to your business. It's cool to practise what I preach. I'm a voice-over artist. And here are the various areas you might be needing me. :)

25 Things You Need Voice-Over For


Someone recently asked me to mention the things he’d need a Voice Over for, and I reeled off the more commonly known areas of voicing. But, as soon as I got started, the list seemed to get longer and longer and longer, that I ended up having to write them down. 

When I finished the list, I counted 25! I was literally blown away by the AMAKAMEDIA in me. This babe means business o. *mouth opens* 

I thought it worth sharing them with you . . .

  1. TV Commercials
  2. Radio Commercials
  3. TV programme sponsorship 
  4. Materials narration, incorporating audio (E-Learning), for commercial re-sale
  5. How-to/Explainer Web Video
  6. Documentary voice overs
  7. The Speaking Clock!
  8. Mobile Phone Interactive 
  9. Voice Recognition  – such as iPhone’s ‘Siri’ Self-Service Checkout ‘voice’ over
  10. Online Auto Customer Care service
