    Definitely try fiverr, most providers have example video, you can just check them and pick someone that you like, you can also tell most of them how you want the video to sound and they will do it.

    Fiverr is the place to look. There are some really good people that do voice overs there that are reasonably priced.

    Remember. It's not the "voice" that does the selling ... it's not even the acting but the a combination of the voice, acting and most importantly the director/producer which is YOU. Just think of how many movies where the acting was on point but the movie sucked balls.

    I've tested lots of different voices including my own and some videos I did using my own voice converted 15-20% better than radio guys with 30 years of training. You should always try to match the voice to not just the market but the medium.

    Like don't hire a radio voice over artist if you're trying to pitch something on YT! Find someone with a more normal voice who is animated and can push the right buttons. Use younger voices for younger markets. Males for male markets. Females for females. I use to use Linea Sage a lot and she has a great voice for a lot of things but doesn't really excel at anything specific.

    A lot of marketers forget how important directing really is. You can write an awesome script, give it to the right person, but if there is nobody directing they can slaughter the script. I'm very pick about this cause I've been sound engineering as a hobby for 14 years. My college thesis was on the mediated influences of sound on emotion.

    Take a look at great TV shows. For example Breaking Bad. The actors always talk about how important the writing is. Which it is. The writers always talk about how important the actors are, which they are. What nobody ever talks about is the fucking >>> DIRECTING. Or the fact that is took 149 cuts to get 1 scene done. On fiver, you might get 1 "cut" or 1 edit if you're lucky. That's a huge set back. Because the director is the guy who translates the writing to screen. He's the guy who says, "you know what? leave that part of the script out cause it sounds better". And it does. He's the guy who says, "the script calls for 3 scenes but we're gonna use 1". He's the mfkr who pays attention to details.

    So learn how to direct. Learn how to do it like Werner Herzog and Stanely Kubrick. 2 of the best directors who ever lived. And they both had 1 thing in common. They know (knew) how to make art out of silence. Silence is so often taken for granted. But do you prefer porn with music in the background or porn without music? Most people hate music in their porn. I follow the same rule in any video I make. As much as I love music and as good as it can be in certain movies, you need to be very careful about using any music or sound fxs if you're trying to create a specific emotional state. And I'll give you a simple reason why. Neuroscience has proven that the brain can only focus on 1 dominant sense at a time. The minute multiple senses are interrupted we have to shift focus and attention. So the same way that music can enhance it can distract and degrade. I see so many marketers adding cheesy sound fxs and unless you know how to score, don't even dare. Scoring is an art same way directing is.

    If you feel overwhelmed right now that's great. Cause most marketers take all this shit for granted than wonder why their videos convert like crap.

    Good luck.
