    Hi, I just started my account the other day and the only experience I have is my vocal coaching with Suchavoice.com. I don’t understand many aspects of the business end of things (i.e. deciding what to charge if my client wants more edits, etc) Basically, I don’t know what I’m doing and I have no idea how to continue. I feel as if I’ll never land a client. Thank you.

      Hi Brian,

      You’re in good company. Everyone starts somewhere, and the learning curve is a steep one! Take a read through our beginner’s guide. It will help you understand the industry and establish a baseline knowledge for you. You can also search for topics here on the blog, too. We have a monthly program called Voices Insiders that we use to bring you ground-floor advice from successful voice actors, and plan on diving deep on the pricing front in the new year! Subscribe to the blog to bring those editions right to your inbox.

      We also have the community forum, which will offer you a sure-fire way to connect with other voice actors at varying degrees of professional statuses as well. Take a peak over there, too.

      Best of luck,

      Niki
