How to record your voiceover demo
The first thing you need to do is learn to read professionally - that means learning the Hudson Voice Technique because it's the only course in the world that guarantees to teach you the same technique taught to the BBC and other broadcasters.
In order to get voiceover work, you'll need to record your voiceover demo.
The financial potential in the voice-over industry is enormous, but you can't expect advertising agencies to pay you thousands of pounds just because you have a good voice and of course, competition is high.
Don't waste your money recording a demo showreel before you've had voiceover training!
- it doesn't make sense. After all, I have ten fingers, but no-one has ever suggested I should play the violin and join the Philharmonic Orchestra!
What should be the content of your voiceover demo?
Many companies will offer to record your voice-over demo on the first day, but you have to know which voice category you're in. No-one is suitable for every category. Your voice may be deep or average (most work is for this category), old, young or teenage, or of course the Joanna Lumley type of voice which you will learn with the Hudson Voice Technique.
You will need original scripts whereas most of them will offer you second-hand scripts and above all, you need to be able to control your voice and the way you deliver words and that can only be achieved by learning the Hudson Voice Technique.
It is obvious that those who have been trained in a professional voice-over technique will have a greater impact on their listener – and that means more success!
The Hudson Voice Technique will teach how to become a confident and successful voice-over. It will put you fully in charge of your greatest asset – your voice – so you can start earning money in this lucrative industry.

Here's an experience one of our students had before he came to us:
" A few weeks ago, I paid £80.00 for one hour (yes, just one hour) of Skype one-to-one discussion with one of your competitors. Unfortunately, I was told I didn't put enough practice into the written scripts I received a couple of days before. Yet I wasn't prepared for what happened next.
What can only be described as a foul-mouthed yob went through the one hour complaining, swearing at me, abusing me and generally and shouting when I made the slightest error. Naturally my confidence was quickly in tatters and my voice was all over the place.
Then I came across your online voiceover course and I am delighted with the progress I have made. It was fun and it's amazing what I can now do with my voice."
