The Opportunity

Did you know that you can sell products in the Store as well as in your own store located within your Profile?
Added with the relaunching of the site in November of 2008, the Store makes it easier than ever before to be hired based upon work you’ve already done and gives you the power to control pricing, write your own ad copy and product descriptions as well as provide audio snippets to serve as product samples. For more information about this innovation and how the entire process works, you can check out this article written for our membership about the Store in October 2008.
Moving right along…

What Are Products?

A product is any kind of voice over that you count among your services, for example, :60 radio commercials, or voice mail greetings, movie trailer voice overs, and so on.
When you create a product it will show up immediately in the Recently Added list.
Products are presented individually to the buyers as ready-to-order and are purchasable immediately online at your store, facilitated by SurePay, the voice over industry’s trusted escrow service.

What Do You Need To Do To Create a Product?

1. Log in to your account
2. Select “Products” within your Profile tab
3. Click on the green button to “+ Add Product

When Creating Products, Be Sure to Include the Following:

๏ Product Title:
A 1-line field for the title or name of the product.
๏ Product Tags:
Select keywords (adjectives) used to describe the product.
๏ Product Language:

What’s Been Working So Far?

From what we’ve observed:
๏ Products listed in the $100 – $500 range do best
๏ Well detailed products are more useful and attractive to prospective customers
๏ Short voice samples that accurately match product descriptions are necessary

  1. Hi Stephanie,
    Happy New Year! Here’s to much prosperity and health in 2009!
    This sounds like a great idea. How can I see what others are selling? And how legally can one sell a product that has been recorded, if it is the property of the client?

  2. Hi Maggie,
    Thank you very much for your greeting and also for your questions. Those are good ones to ask, indeed 🙂 Happy New Year to you, too.
    1. You can see all of the products in the store by visiting this link:
    2. When I said you could get work based upon recordings already made, I was referring to being hired directly from the stock voice sample that the customer hears accompanying your demo and not having to record a custom recording for the client just to secure their business (i.e. no auditioning!). You wouldn’t be reselling custom work that you have done for a specific client, however, you would be selling people on the demo that represents what they could expect from your product.
    Also, if you have recorded an audiobook on your own that is in the public domain or that you have the rights to, you could promote that recording and sell it online through your store. This could be a great way to make use of voice overs you have already recorded on your own (your property) to stock your store with, for instance, you could have narrated a collection of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm or any other work published before January 1st, 1923 ( or also see the Wikipedia entry here in the US according to US copyright law. In effect, you could be your own audiobook narrator, publisher and distributor all rolled into one.
    Thanks for your questions and comments!
    Best wishes,

  3. Hi, Stephanie! I am new to and would love to post “products” – I downloaded and printed the “Getting Started” and “Royalty Free Scripts” – so, I would just record some of them as “demos” and post them as a “product” and would be contacted based on those examples? I am sooo anxious to get going!

  4. Hi Hope,
    Thank you very much for commenting and for your questions! I appreciate your enthusiasm.
    You could certainly record those scripts as samples of your voice. What I recommend that you do is customize them and even change the industries they may represent so that you have a unique commercial built from the framework of the spot. Could be a fun exercise for you 🙂
    If you have any other questions, feel free to let me know and I’ll be happy to answer them for you.
    Best wishes,
