Understand what a voice-over agent does and how they can help you - they act as a liaison between you and potential casting directors, help negotiate fees, and get your name out there.

A voice-over agent can benefit those looking to break into the commercial and entertainment voice-over work world. A good agent understands the industry, knows which casting directors might be looking for the talent you possess, and has relationships with many people who decide on casting projects. Not only will they help you find potential projects, but they will also help negotiate fees, find promotional opportunities, and generally get your name out there. Landing those big gigs is an essential part of the success equation. Research agents in your area or online who specialize in voice-over work to ensure you are closely matched to the right partner.

Research the different types of agents and pick one that fits your needs and goals best.

When looking for a voice-over agent, please do your record to find the one that best fits your needs and goals. Agents come in various specializations, such as comedy, commercials, narration, animation, and more; some may specialize in one genre, while others may represent a variety of voices and genres. Please review your options to select an agent with all the resources needed to get you started, such as contacts and advice on approaching casting directors. You can also look at the agents’ previous work to ensure they are experienced in the industry before making a final decision. Once you have found an agent with whom you feel comfortable, provide a record of a clear understanding of tasks both parties need to complete for each job, such as renting studio space or writing scripts. Doing your homework before committing can mean better long-term success opportunities in voice-over!

Assemble a professional portfolio on Project Casting and practice your voice-over skills to ensure the highest quality possible.

Creating a Project Casting profile of professional-quality voice-over work is critical to landing an agent. This collection should demonstrate your range and capabilities, and it can include pieces from various genres if you are comfortable performing them. Additionally, it would be best to practice the fundamentals of voice-over – the impact of pacing and pauses, pacing changes, and effective vocal delivery – to ensure top performance and impressive results. While agents may be interested in taking a chance on unknown talent with potential, it is vital to showcase the highest quality possible when trying to land a sustaining career in voice-over work.

Contact agents with a pitch letter outlining your experience and why you would be a great addition to their roster.

The most crucial step in getting an agent for a voice-over is to craft a memorable and compelling pitch letter. Include any relevant experience and achievements that make you an attractive addition to the agent's roster. Outline your accomplishments concisely and impactfully, citing your projects or successes since beginning your voice-over career. You should also provide audio samples of your work so agents can hear the range and quality of your performance. Finally, consider adding links to profiles on casting websites or portfolios of the ton to impress agents with results from your previous collaborations. A well-crafted pitch letter can make all the difference in getting an agent interested in representing you as an artist!

Follow up on any leads you will receive from the agents once your pitch has been accepted - keep in touch, but don’t be too pushy!

Following up on leads you receive from agents after your pitch has been accepted is a great way to move your career toward getting yourself a voice-over agent. Though it is essential to stay in contact, be calm, as this will only turn people off from working with you. A good rule of thumb is to contact you once weekly with updates on your progress, such as any new additions or actively seeking voice-over opportunities. This allows potential agents to see that you are committed and serious about pursuing a successful career within the industry.

Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way – always be prepared for auditions or meetings with potential clients by having suitable materials.

Having an agent is a great way to secure voice-over gigs, so it's essential to take advantage of any opportunities that come your way. Having suitable materials on hand is always a good idea to make the most impressive and professional impression during auditions or meetings with potential clients. Creating a portfolio and resume of previous jobs and demo reels highlighting your best work would be best. With all this preparation and hard work, you will be well on your way to getting a voice-over agent and taking your career further.


Working with a voice-over agent can be challenging, but it can be gratifying. It takes hard work, dedication, and the willingness to take risks to succeed. Like any venture into the unknown, there are no guarantees that you will land your dream role or become a household name. However, with the right agent by your side, putting in the effort to create an impressive portfolio and diligently pursuing opportunities can undoubtedly increase your chances of success! Whether you’re just starting or have been in the voice-over business for years, don’t be afraid to take steps toward finding or building relationships with agents that will help you reach new heights. Don’t forget that everyone has to start somewhere - who knows where these next steps might lead?
