You probably do this hundreds of times a year and never give it a second thought.

And maybe you even grumbled (or cursed) just a little.

I’m willing to bet money that in the past week or maybe even today, you picked up the phone and interacted with an Interactive Voice Response System.

A voice (maybe mine!) told you what to do and you’ve spoken commands, pressed touch tones and (hopefully) gotten what you’ve wanted out of the darn thing.

Welcome to the world of telephony voice overs

It’s not glamorous. It’s not sexy.

And recording these scripts can take a lot of patience and be downright tedious at times.

But it’s a booming niche voice over market that’s expected to reach $2.7 billion dollars by 2017.

I’ve been working steadily in this niche for over 20 years, and am the branded telephone voice of Citibank, Sears, Home Depot and many others.

Frankly, I don’t care how boring the scripts are.

This “humble” voice over niche has been very, very good to me.

It’s not for everyone but to find out if it’s right for you, I’ve put together a short training video for you.

Check it out below I think you’ll find the inspiration and help you need.

And after you watch the video I want to know your thoughts, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve at this awhile. Does the telephony niche resonate for you? If not, what else are you thinking about?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments box. I want to read about what’s on your mind so I can support you.

To your voice over success,

Susan Berkley,
Founder, The Great Voice Company
