    Hi everyone

    I just joined DN Trade on a recommendation. Thought I'd see what it's all about! :)

    I'm a freelance copywriter, journalist and voice-over artist. Looking to learn more about - and hopefully contribute to - the world of online marketing.

    Thanks!

    Virginia

    Welcome to DnTrade.

    I have recently been thinking about potentially looking into hiring a voice over artist for some videos.

    How much does it normally cost to get a voice over artist for 2 - 3 minute speeches?

    Welcome Virginia!

    It is great to have someone of your undoubted talents here on DN Trade. :) I have just listened to a
    couple of your demo clips - they are fantastic.

    I think I could use someone like you to do a couple of audio files for some of my sites. I'll be in touch.

    In the meantime, please post your services / give yourself a rap here:

    I like the play on words for your company name. ;)

    I'm sure there will be plenty here that will be interested in your services.

    Being honest I am not interested at this stage though there is most definitely the chance that a few years down the track, I may be. Could you PM me that too :)

    Yah, that's why I was was wondering the cost of say 2-3 minutes of recording as well

    Welcome to the forum Virginia!

    Anyone contemplating getting a voice over done for a video, I can highly recommend it. We've had a lot of positive feedback from the video we recently made for SchoolBuy on the home page.

    I was surprised at how cost-effective getting a voice over was. And now any time I see a web video without a professional voice over, it really stands out.

    We actually wanted to get a female voice on that video, but only had males quote on the job through the site we used. It's a pity we didn't know about you then Virginia.

    Welcome again and see you in the forum!

    Luke

    Hi Luke

    Thanks for the welcome, and for the insight into your experience getting a voice artist to voice your video. It does sound good! May I ask which site you used? There are a few around, Elance, Voices.com etc.

    It is indeed a shame I wasn't around on here when you wanted that female voice! :)

    I am pretty sure it was Voice123.com - it was a site that the guy who did the video used and recommended. I don't know how voice over professionals view that site, but we got 4 responses within a few days and all were very good.
