          Get Voquent Ready

          How to prepare for ultimate success on Voquent.

          wave background

          Voquent is a powerful tool for online voice-over casting, but it requires careful management to guarantee its integrity. Most voice-over professionals will be familiar with our requirements, but it's worth checking the following list before signing up:

          1. You must be a professional talent

          Whilst signing up for Voquent is free and will open you to a world of casting directors, it's not for everyone. You should already have some experience with voice-over, acting, streaming, hosting or creative audio or video production work. Our customers are some of the world's biggest brands, and we need confident performers who represent themselves and Voquent competently. 

          2. Prepare high-quality demos 

          Yep, there is no point signing up to Voquent if you don't have audio demos. We do ALL our casting using the demos you upload. At a minimum, we recommend preparing five audio demo samples and, over time, building this up to 45+ - with 6 reels too! The more material you have on your profile, and the higher quality it is, the more chance you have of getting heard (and booked). 

          Demos should be professionally recorded and edited in mp3 format. The performance should start immediately, so casting directors don't have to wait for you to get started (hint: they won't, and you'll have missed an opportunity). 

          3. Edit each of your demos in ONE distinct style and tone

          If the project is already in the public domain, using it as a demo on your profile should be fine. If you had to sign an NDA or the read is for an internal project like eLearning, you can still use some of the material if you edit out brand names or product names. 

          When you add a demo to Voquent, you will tag it with a Tone, e.g. Authoritative or Comedic, along with the reading Style, e.g. Explainer or B2B. 

          These tags are vital to casting directors finding your samples. Therefore, it's super-important that any tags accurately describe the audio. If they aren't, our moderators cannot accept the demo.

          NOTE: When you unlock reels, any characteristics should match the first take on the reel.

          An effective way to prepare content for Voquent is to use examples from customer projects or auditions. 

          • Authoritative
          • Conversational
          • Comedic
          • Eloquent
          • Enticing
          • Inspiring
          • Nurturing
          • Playful

          4. Unlocking reels

          Perfectly crafted Voicereels allow you to show off your best, most diverse vocal skills.

          Before adding reels to Voquent, you will first need 15 approved samples. Sample-based search is how casting directors engage with Voquent as they look for specific vocal sounds to match their project. Making it viral to have samples on your profile before adding any reels.

          Verified voices with less than 15 samples can also immediately add reels.

          You can add a maximum of 6 reels to your profile. These reels should reflect one style, e.g. commercial, character, narration etc., across various tones. Reel tags should match the characteristics of the first read, so casting directors are listening to audio that matches their search.

          5. Accurately complete your profile information

          Please, enter all your profile information correctly. This is an essential step to get right.

          Your native language, other spoken languages, location address, date of birth and experience level are critical bits of info. 

          We never share this information publically. You, and your data, are safe with Voquent. We will only display your nearest city, native language, age range and experience level. 

          6. Access to a bona fide, professional recording studio

          If you're serious about voice-over work setting up a home recording studio is recommended.

          Having a home studio puts you in the driving seat. You can accept and fulfil jobs more quickly to quickly increase your earnings. And it doesn't need to cost the earth either - check our home studio buying guide.

          But as long as you have access to a quality local recording studio, we can work with you.

          Ideally, please check out a couple of local studios in advance. Speak to them about your voice-over work and get an idea of their rates so that you've got a handle on your costs when we come to you with an opportunity. 

          Important: if you don't have access to either a local studio or home studio, it's unlikely we'll be able to offer you work.

          7. You're a decent human being

          We are good friends with many of the voice-acting professionals we work with regularly but let's face it, we all meet challenging people from time to time, and the land of voice-over is no exception. 

          Our casting directors and producers are here to get a job done well, and they don't have the time or patience for any drama—apart from the performance, of course!

          Voquent is a safe platform for our talent and clients to work harmoniously. Our realistic expectations are as follows:

          • You never lie about your experience level or studio gear.
          • You are punctual (you show up when agreed).
          • You quickly respond to our producers (check your emails regularly).
          • You communicate clearly in written English.
          • You are happy to sign a non-disclosure if required.
          • You are never rude or behave unprofessionally, e.g. subverting our team and directly connecting with the customer.

          In return, we'll always clearly communicate our expectations of you, what the project is for and where it will be published. We will compensate you fairly and quickly. 

          We will keep our end of the agreement as long as you keep yours!

          Our high reviews are a testament to our team's professionalism; all we ask is the same in return.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          How do I get voice acting work on Voquent?

          First, read about voice actor jobs on Voquent and then sign-up to create a profile. To get discovered by casting directors and agencies, you must upload your best audio demos in various styles and tones. We recommend uploading five demo samples minimum, but ideally, thirty to give you maximum exposure in search.

          How do I create demos for my Voquent profile?

          Most voice talents use audio from previously completed projects or auditions. Some write and record scripts or read excerpts from books. If you already have a reel, it may be possible to edit this into separate clips. So you have free reign to publish this content as separate samples or an entire reel.

          We've put some suggestions together in our blog:

          How long does it take to approve my demos?

          Our moderation team works Monday-Friday in the GMT zone. They approve most demos within 24 hours. If you upload demos late on Friday, don't expect them to go live until Monday. If you've waited over two working days and your demos are still not approved, please contact our moderation team by email: talent@voquent.com.

          Do I need a home recording studio to work on Voquent?

          No. Whilst we recommend setting up a home studio, it is not imperative. We work with many actors and broadcasters who don't have the time or inclination to learn how to facilitate recordings themselves. If you're already in a big media city such as London, Los Angeles or New York, we'll have studios we can book you in. If you're in a smaller city, please check out the local studios to ensure they can facilitate live, remote voice-over sessions. Ideally, they will have Source Connect.
