  3. Hi Declan how’s things? I’m interested to know which P2P you’ve decided on? Mark.

      That all interesting. I’ve been researching everything at the moment whilst I get my Mac back. It’s funny I’ve heard good things about Fiverr and bad things about voice123 😕 I never know which way is best 😕 


      It would be good to have a chat sometime my email is marks2991@gmail.com if you want to chat over the phone. M

      I think Fiverr can be a good place to get your hands dirty and get some work done,  and I like to think I did some good work there including 2 voice-overs I currently have on my demo reel.

      But let's put it this way: I did 17 jobs and some of them took DAYS not hours, and I earned about £135 IN TOTAL after Fiverr took their 20%. It's  crass exploitation by the Buyers. BUT it FORCED me to raise my game considerably. And without auditioning for real jobs I find it's very easy to just lose focus...So now Voices.com is keeping me busy. In fact I will be on VOK less as a result, and will be stepping back from most of the vocal challenges. I have got to keep my eye on the prize, as they say. 

      I am notoriously phone-phobic but let's keep in touch this way, it's probably easiest.  Also my email is decmchugh@yahoo.com

      How do you do this 'Single Status Update' Messaging?

      Still not having much luck with the P2P on Voices.com I think there's too much choice for the clients. M

  4. i Just checked out your character reel, you've got some fantastic voices there like Guy said. And it's a really good website too!

  5. I'm 75% through the Self Direction Took Kit, and have to say I am finding it very helpful. I am going to start taking part in the moderator of the month challenges, once I have completed it. I am very new to commercial reading, and didn't like reading these type of scripts, because I prefer to read character roles. However, the Self Direction Took Kit has helped me to actually enjoy reading commercial scripts. I even auditioned for one recently and got the role. Which has given me even more enthusiasm to do these type of roles which previously I thought I could never do. 

  6. Hi Holly,

    I've been perusing your site and have been reading a few of your posts - your one about marketing yourself  was really helpful. A lot for me to bear in mind and it's given me a more realisitic, tangible idea of the kind of things I'll need to start embracing. 

    I wrote a little comment on your blog post as well to help your Google stuff - keep it active n all that jazz - isn't that how it works?!?!?   😛

      Hi Paul, ah I'm so happy it helped you out a little! There is a lot to think about and if you've not been in marketing it can be daunting to learn, but you just need some basics really :) 

      thanks for the comment! I should really get around to writing some more! haha

      Picking up various tips on marketing recently. All helping to form a clearer picture - daunting levels definitely dropping... 😛 

      I need to get my website built and I can begin the journey!

      Excellent to hear! If you're doing your site yourself, don't forget you can post it here or on the reddit forums and people tend to be pretty good with constructive criticism :)

  7. Hi Alberto, I hope you are keeping well! Came across you on a post thought id say hello, seeing as I last saw you in an Enneagram workshop a few years back!

      Yey good for you so nice to see. BBC bloody hell that's brilliant!! love to hear if you share the link x

      Well hopefully I can pick your brains and learn from any advice you can give. I'll pay for the coffee/beer if you fancy it when they're open again. 

      I just posted in the forum but if you have any advice I was going to buy the focusrite scarlett 2i2 (2nd gen) or 3rd, but do I really need a 2i2 if its just me and I don't play any musical instruments it will solelybe used for vo? Or is it better to have 2i2 in case I'm recording with another vo? (although they'd have to bring their mic :))

      Thanks and keep well x

      I don't know what are you circumstances, but I would say all steps we do are ok as long as they are part of a  plan, a business plan.  During these years I have done a few one to ones with the pros, I found that very useful and money well invested. 

      Keep well and safe!

      You too Keep safe :)
