Why do I need a voice-over demo?

You can’t get voice-over work without a demo. Much like if you don’t have a headshot and résumé, you can’t secure on-camera work.

You need a demo to get a talent agent and to promote yourself to copywriters and producers at advertising agencies (known as ad creatives) and to anyone else who produces work that requires a voice-over.

The whole idea of having a demo is to take the guesswork out of the casting equation. Once your demo is heard, the listener should have a very clear idea of what sort of work you’re best suited to deliver and most likely to land, what you actually sound like, and how you animate the text.

In short, the best definition of a demo is: a professional “demonstration” of what it is you do best and what you want MORE of.
