Fiverr Pro Keith Harris has put everything you need to know to start and build a voice over business from home into one fantastic course. The voice over business consists of three parts; 1) the performance 2) the studio and 3) finding work and keeping clients. This course takes you step by step through each and every section building your skills through homework assignments and practical exercises.

If you have wanted to build a home business, enjoy talking and are a regular real person – this course will give you everything you need to know to develop and build a significant business in voice over.
Excellent course from a very knowledgeable voice-over artist! As an established voice-over talent myself I still learned a ton of new things to help me grove my career and perform better in the future. I liked very much that Keith also offered voice training excercises, which is a key element in succeding in voice. Thank you very much!
Honestly, there's not much I didn't already know about. The only stuff I thought was useful was the business side of it (how to organize all files, setting hours, etc.)
I've been a voice over talent for over 6 years and I still found some new things to learn, excercises to practice every day, how to manage my own gigs/business and interesting tips. Keith did an amazing job with this course.
Well composed, informative, covers all bases and exceeds expectation regarding the depth of stepping into a new industry. Cheers
This was great. I have been in voice-over for 9 years and I picked up a few things that were helpful. I think the information about being engaged in Fiverr forum was the most helpful. I enjoy working on Fiverr and believe this information will help me!
Very helpful. Has some great basics and covers some very important topics while being self employed in the voicework business.
This course had great information! If you are beginner this course is great, if you take this course to get some new tips I know I definitely learned some new things that will help with my gigs!
Thorough and quite useful. I highly recommend this course to anyone starting out in voice over.
Fantastic course! I made a ton of notes and learnt a ton! Thanks!
Keith Harris "Voice Over for Real People: Complete Freelancing Guide" is an excellent course for those yearning to enter the exciting field of voice overs. I really enjoyed his motivational method to develop skills. A great foundation for beginners and a great refresher as well. Great Job, Keith!
Lots of great information, some common sense & some things I have been wanting to learn. The downloadable extras are especially useful. I expect to be coming back to some parts of this course at least a couple more times. Thank you, Keith!
Keith does a great job at explaining the concepts in a simple manner and organizes everything very clearly for the learner. Greatly enjoyed the tips and tricks provided! The course has even inspired some fresh ideas of my own to help my business succeed with less clutter and more clarity for my clients. Good material!
Thought that this had a lot of good information for the basics of voice over. I would like to have seen it more tailored to Fiverr. Like how to make gigs and be more effective specifically on the site. I did find a ton of helpful information though that I will use to propel my new career.
I learned a lot form this course - Very well done and definitely worth the investment!
LOVED IT!! SO HELPFUL!
Great course! Super easy to follow and he is super encouraging and positive! Highly recommend!
I so appreciate this course! Sometimes you think you know stuff and these courses remind you of their worth. I really enjoyed learning from Keith. I’m looking forward to taking more Fiverr courses really soon - thank you Fiverr!
Good course, but wish it were more focused on how to speak and record and not how to stay healthy by drinking water and sleeping 8 hours a day. Also, Keith should be available to at least answer questions by email. I feel I got my money's worth however by reviewing the lessons I need.
Keith seems like a nice guy. And someone I wouldn't mind sitting down and having coffee with. However, this course didn't teach me anything. I have been doing voice over for 12 years and didn't learn anything from this course. In fact, the only reason I payed money (to which I hope to get back) on this was so I could get more views on Fiverr. A new rule of theirs I am not super happy with. This would be okay as a service if there were more options as far as professional voice over talent to learn from. It would also be nice to not make other professional talent have to watch video after video on the most basic content just so there gigs don't always end up at the bottom of the list. Again, nothing wrong with Keith. His target student is someone who has never held a mic before and that's fine. The issue is more the Fiverr "credentials" system it'self.
The course itself, and the material, are of excellent quality. The teacher, Keith, is positive, upbeat, and friendly, and he is absolutely a great presenter of knowledge. The course was well worth the money, even for a seasoned VO like myself. I've been working in the industry for many years, and allthough much of the material was about getting started in the industry, the insights were interesting.
The only note on dissatisfaction for me with this course, is the fact that Keith recommends USB microphones like the Blue Yeti to new talent. I think this is setting the bar too low if you're getting paid to do voice-over work.
On the acting, warm-ups etc. Keith is spot on all the way, and I was happy to learn some new and fun ways of working on my own vocal health, as well as new ways to organize my files, and work schedules.
This course will probably not add a lot to what seasoned voice-over talent knows already, but it was inspiring, fun to do, and had some good insights. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone getting started in voice-over, and even to long-timers who are looking for some inspiration and tips & tricks along the way.
I would love to see more courses on voice-over from Keith in the future, perhaps with content for the already established talent out there as well.
All in all - well worth the money and time!
The best $97 I've spent and it's my first full experience of a course on Fiverr. The instructor does a great job of going step by step. He offers a lot of in-depth things that I know I will be returning to often, especially as I get my voiceover business off the ground. I read one 5 star review from a woman who is already a voiceover professional, and she said that this is a great course for those just starting out in voiceover. She is correct! He answers the little nagging questions that are in your head as he goes along, and he does a great job of debunking myths. In the end, I really feel like I can do this, because this has been a desire of mine for a long time! I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about getting into the world of voicever.
Keith did a great job with information. He does mug a bit too much for the camera. Clearly needs some on-camera coaching. And the audio levels were all over the place. When he was on camera, the levels were fine, but when transitioned to one of his demo reels, for examply, the audio was 80% LOUDER. The video needs some audio finetuning, but Keith really did provide some great info.
The course was interesting and easy to follow. Keith has a great way of keeping voice over simple, and encouraging one along the way. The topics and the recording exercise have been a great refresher for me since I graduated from broadcasting school about 3 years ago. I am working on setting up my first gig on Fiverr, and I look forward to getting started, and building on experience and assets to get a solid place in the industry among the most reputable voices around.
I have been searching for many different programs all over the internet to help me develop my skills. None have been so helpful as this one. I really appreciated the in depth approach to voice exercises, audio and video editing. I am very glad that I purchased this training session.
Excellent content. I wish the quizzes were a little more challenging (i.e.: the true/false questions always have the correct answer in lowercase and the incorrect answer in UPPERCASE). Also, there were a couple of typos in the "Quiz: Home Studio" section. Question 3 spells XRL mic, instead of the correct XLR mic. Question 4 spells "booth" as "both."
Other than the minor issues above, I feel much better equipped to start my voice over work on Fiverr.
I really enjoyed this course. I’ve been doing voiceovers for about three or four months now and as a beginner I thought I pretty much had the basic foundation of just starting, but after taking this course I have learned so many helpful tips that I’m going to implement in my voiceover business. Every single piece to this course is valuable information. This is everything that you need to know for a beginner. I especially enjoy the vocal health as well as the exercises for my voice and most of all how to organize my files. Keith gives a great presentation to each lesson and he doesn’t make it boring he keeps it interesting and that’s a big plus for me...his enthusiasm made me excited to go to the next lesson. Was worth every penny I spent.
I've been doing voice over for a long time, and have worked with many clients by now. So I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of this course. But I must say it was and excellent course and a great reminder that no matter how much experience you have, it's always great to keep learning! I'm more motivated than ever to continue building my VO biz here on fiverr!
I really enjoyed this course and found Keith to be an outstanding instructor. I started in VoiceOver in 2015 with a reputable company and I felt as though I received good training. Then I began to realize that I didn't know much about all the technical aspects of this business and it became very stressful and frustrating because nobody wanted to help me unless I was willing to spend big money to learn from them and they only taught a few things and recommended that I go find answers needed through google or youtube. I don't want to bad mouth the company that I got my start from because I feel that it would be disrespectful and there were some people that I worked with there that were great people to work with. I just didn't get all of the training that I now see that I should have gotten to be better prepared as a voice artist. This session with Keith has made me feel like I made the right decision to become a voice artist and I plan to keep working with Keith if he will have me because I can truly say that I now feel more empowered to step out and give myself and this business more of an opportunity to grow and help those that are coming to Fiverr to help them with their projects. I also plan to continue to work with Keith on building my skills and knowledge about VoiceOver and Fiverr. Sadly to say, I've learned more with Keith in this session than I learned in the 10-month program I was in with the other company. Thank you Keith, and thank you Fiverr for making it possible to have such a great experience with this course and instructor.
Keith's approach is very detailed and thorough. Helpful info for beginners in VO and established VO artists as well. Well done!
Great information!!! Some stuff and knew and some stuff I didn't. Worth the buy for sure though
Quite boring, actually. Keith has some good information but the tone of his delivery seems aimed at children. I didn’t feel inspired.
Although a not-insignificant cost, there are tips here which are specific to the platform and also about doing voice work as an additional income and even while you are travelling around. I know from doing sound technology in my day job that this course covers everything you need to know. I actually purchased this course to see what the competition was like, hoping to set up my own course but... what can I say? It's impressive and covers pretty much everything you'd want to know. Yes you can do other courses but anything beyond this one will see diminishing returns. I can literally only pick holes in the price but his advice on microphones alone could save you that amount!
A complete, deep yet simple and practical voice-over course with effective technical advices on every single aspect of voice-over business! Keith is way friendly, and an excellent communicator and teacher. I've been in the voice-over business for the last 3 years (and a half), so I already knew a lot, but... Keith kept surprising me with unexpected tips! Highly recommended to anyone who is curious about voice-over business and wants to start their own.
Excellent and helpful course! Perfect for anyone new to voice over work or new to the Fiverr platform. Covers everything you need to know to get started in the business and to keep yourself motivated and healthy. Thanks for this course Keith!
Excellent course that has helped guide me into the world of voice over. It's packed with valuable information and it's well worth the value. Highly recommended!
I've been doing voicework for over 30 years and still picked up some nice tips from this course. Very realistic and applicable to any skill level.
This class is taught at a good pace with lots of useful information, great for beginning talent, and, for intermediate professionals. Outstanding course!
This course offers exactly what an aspiring voice over talent needs. Keith provides a friendly face and voice to guide you through getting set up and on your way. Keith offers some really practical advice and suggestions so you can feel good about your decision to get into this business and to keep going. Well worth the money.
As a Top Seller, I was pleasantly surprised how much I still learned from Keith! The exercises, practice scripts, and 5 characters were especially helpful.
Good course overall but I wish that he went over the different ways to actually get Voice Over work besides using Fiverr.
I love Keith! Great coach, great information, lots I didn't know! :) Thank so much. Starting in VO? This course is for you!!
This course is exactly what I wanted. Keith is great instructor and I would like to hear more from him. I recommend this course to both beginners and professionals. It has great exercises, tips and tricks and a bunch more! Great!
It was an amazing insight into voice over, and I really enjoyed it.
I will watch it over and over. It was very well presented and made
This was a great starting point for the beginner. I found the material high quality (one small type-o.
I've been doing VO for a while now but for the price I thought I'd check this out. Pretty amazed at how much information is here, and I learned a thing or two!
I was in radio several years ago, so I already knew some of the tricks of the trade, but Keith's course provided a good refresher, as well as showed a few new tricks for this old dog to learn.
Very thoughtful and thorough. It covered a lot of topics. I like that it included recommendations for equipment, exercises and demonstrations for making a demo and working with audio and video. Keith's voice is great and he is upbeat and engaged. Nice job!
This course was very comprehensive and well done. I am glad I completed it and will go back to it often.
Great reminders and tips for voice actors whether we've been in the business for years or just starting out. Thank you for your hard work and clear delivery! Much appreciated.

Keith is a great coach and very good mentor for the level for me to work toward achieving, with my new voice acting career. Thank you I will review this informative often over the next year. Ronnie Jack
Keith has really helped me to improve my skillset - even though I've been freelancing as a voiceover artist for the past 5 years. It's a great, high quality and beginner friendly course :)
The perfect course for people like me that are just starting out.
There is a lot of value and I haven't found something comparable on the Internet.
This is an excellent course for beginners in voice over. I've been working for 2 years already, but there were still plenty of good tips for more experienced vo artists, and great reminders about the basics that are easy to lose sight of after a while.
Wow what a thorough and excellent course, I highly recommend this.
Good course for absolute beginners, less so if one is already up & running...
Always good to hear how other voice actors feel about our business. I see things sometimes differently but enjoyed listening to his learning sessions. Would be a nice feature if we could interact with the teachers directly.
This course was a wonderful intro to Voice Over. Although I have been on Fiverr for a year, I learned several new points that will help me improve my skills. Thank you for offering a course for VO. The instructor was wonderful and obviously enjoys his job and the teaching aspect of what he does. I would also appreciate a woman instructor and a bit more advanced course for those who wish to continue getting educated. I would pay for it! Thanks again and n ice job! I will ask all the beginners who I encourage, to take this course. Melissa Harlow VO
This was a fantastic course...well done Keith Harris. I enjoyed every aspect of the course and at the same time it was a great learning experience. Thank you!
One of the best ever courses I took on Fiverr. I had a very tight budget and It was difficult to take this course due to financial constraints. However, I am really happy at the end of this course. The amount spent on this course is not an expense, it is an investment! Worth it!
Very helpful with the basics of learning voice over!
Excellent job on putting together the course. I think this is great for anyone new to Fiverr and new to voice over. Keith is a very well spoken instructor and it is easy to follow along. We would highly recommend this course to others!

This is great course if you are trying to get into VO. I am fairly new to the VO business and this course taught me alot of knowledge about what is needed and expected as a VO artist. This course provides a ton of practice scripts and other things...(no spoilers), to help your voice delivery.
This course was exactly what I needed. It answered all of my questions that not even YouTube could answer.
Why isn't this shown as completed on my gig? I have commented on this several days ago already!
Pretty basic information. It didn't really help me to improve my voicoever business. On top of that, I didn't care for the instructor and thought his voice was very rigid. It was honestly harder and harder to listen to him as the course went on.
The course offered some valuable information and some not so valuable information. The information on technique was fantastic. I would have liked to have seen more on how to set up my gig(s). Less on staying motivated and being self-employed. I've been self-employed for nearly 20 years. That should be another course.
Excellent course, well structured and really informative to have a good base on voice over!
I learned a lot and I’m excited to start my new career!
An excellent course for beginners. Contains valuable information for a lot of aspects of voice-over not commonly covered online.
Very informative. I would highly recommend.
What a great course, it was full of useful information and guidance.
This course is a great introduction to what the voice over industry has in store! Keith gave great advice, tips and help in paving the way to a professional voice career. Would definitely recommend this course for beginners who are looking to take the plunge into the world of freelance voice work!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Keith has a great instructional style and offers information for every skill level. This course is an absolute must for anybody just starting out. Even if you are an experienced professional, Keith's course will remind you of some basics and perhaps teach you a new way to do something.
I thought the course was excellent. I've taken many courses already as well as coaching and schooling, but Keith shared a lot of very helpful tips across the board, making this a definite recommendation for any new or newer voice talent.
Great course and a great tool set for getting started in voice over.
One thing I found bothersome was the sound mixing. Any time a demo or separate video was played, it was so much louder than his speaking to the camera. It was even worse when he was speaking about balancing audio, and yet the audio was not balanced.
a great starting point for beginners very thoroughly covers the fundamentals
Outstanding! Brilliant for beginners and also professionals. I have been a voice over artist for over 3 years and still was surprised by the amount of knowledge I got from this course. Definitely recommended!
This was a well-rounded course on Voice over actingas a true home business.
I've gained a lot of useful information from this course.
This class will give the rookie the playbook they need to become a pro.
Very beneficial information for beginners. Ive done voice over for a while a learned a lot of this info my self so i was looking for more help with the creating a demo and self employment part but in totality the course was great
Loads of good information. Well worth the investment.
Very informative, and highly recommended, even for current voice over artists... there's a lot of great information in here :)
