Sell Radio Ads
You can also work from home using your voice to sell radio ads. Many radio stations hire people like me and you to make ads for them. This can be done from the comfort of your home with a good quality microphone, decent sound proofing and audio editing software. Search for places that need radio ads voice like internet radio stations and podcasters. You will also want to make a voice over demo of you reading different radio ads. That way when you apply to a radio station, you can give them your demo to listen to.
Create Audio Books
Audio books are very popular these days because it’s an easy way for people to consume information while doing something else like washing up, working up, gardening, driving the car or even while working. Listening to an audio book is a powerful way to learn and also one of my favourite ways to do so. I listen to audio books on x2 speed all the time on my iPhone as it allows me to digest stuff in double the time! With the high demand for audio books, there are quite a few companies that hire people to turn their books into audio books. So, if you are looking for a job at home using your voice, this may be a great job for you.
