Visit Small Businesses
Small businesses need voice over artists for commercials and online videos. Walk into small businesses in your community with business cards and confidence. Let the owner know you are a voice over artist interested in setting up an appointment to discuss how you can help him market his business. You can then let him know all of the opportunities he has when he uses you for his videos.
Join the Chamber of Commerce

People search Craigslist.org for many services, including voice over artists. Create a post on Craigslist for your local area to advertise your services.
People still read the paper. Pay for an ad in the paper, or call the editorial department to ask if there’s a chance you could have an article featured about the value of voice over artists.
Hanging flyers on a library local news board, in a Starbucks, or in other places it’s allowed will help you get your name and voice over business out there. Be sure to cut slits at the bottom of the paper with your phone number on each piece, so people can rip one off and take it with them.
Visit Video Production Agencies
Video production agencies use voice over artists. Some of them are on staff, while others are contracted out. Visit them to ask if they need your help. If they don’t, drop off your business card, demos, and resume. They may need you in the near future and call you.
