A 32-year-old man called Joel Young who was working as a minister at the church turned to Fiverr and made voice-over gigs which brought him $50,000 to pay off his debt.
In fact, it’s hard to find a comfortable job that brings you enough money to live, although you can make extra income by making side business.
Young started by creating a page for his voice-over gigs, then he created a new gig for videos when people asked him to make their videos. Most of his videos are to advertise a product or service for the others.
Over the course of one year, Young made $34,000 using his iPhone camera and IKEA lamp to make the videos! then he bought new equipment.
Today, Young works 10 hours a day and earns $18,000 to $32,000 per month.
“Do what you already know what to do,” Young says. “The reality is, you don’t have to do something so unique that no one else is doing. There are always going to be a thousand other people doing exactly what you’re doing — you just have to differentiate yourself by the way you serve people, by the quality of your service, and your level of communication.”
Now you have an idea about how much you can earn by doing easy work, and there is always a way to gain financial freedom. In this post, I’m going to show you how to make money from over-voice services, and if you don’t like this work you can find another work here.
#1 Do you have a good voice?
Actually, you may think there are a good voice and a bad one, but the reality is there are a good style and a bad one. So start testing your style of speaking and develop a good style by acting before people whom you trust, listen carefully to their comments and care about their feedback. Be patient until you find the best style.
#2 You need equipment
Don’t worry you don’t have to spend money on a professional mic -you may have to in the future- instead, you can start using your smartphone recorder. After that, you can buy a professional mic.
#3 You may want to hone your voice-over skills
You are good without this point, but you may want to be a voice-over professional. Fortunately, there are many free sites and books to learn record voice-over. Also, there are many paid courses that can help you for a good price, click here to find a course on Udemy.
