Two Ways To Earn More
Here are a couple of surefire ways to increase your income as a voice actor:
1. Get your existing clients to hire you more often.
2. Get more clients.
clients to give you more gigs is generally easier than
acquiring new clients. For starters, you don't have to sell them on using you as their talent as they already trust that you can do a job for. So ask them whether they have additional needs - maybe in a different department or even at a different location. You could even offer to reduce your rate by 10-15% if they get you work from someone else at the same company. So not only are you saving them the hassle of looking for another talent but you're also saving them money. Aren't you the hero!
Your existing customers are also probably one of the best resources
for getting new customers. If you have an existing working relationship and the client is pleased with the work you've done, why wouldn't they be happy to refer you to their friends and associates who also need the
services of a voice-actor? Ask them to forward your name to these people. If you do land work as a result of a referral from an existing client, it's a smart idea to show your appreciation. A simple card goes a long way. If your client referred you to a job that earned you, say, a $1000, it may be a good idea to spend $50 or so on a small gift.
So, start marketing and acquiring new jobs and clients from the list of who you know!
