A couple of weeks ago, someone emailed me about a new product called VO Genesis.
They wanted to know what I thought about this guide, if it was legit and whether I would do a review about it.
Well I checked it out and although it’s a guide that doesn’t target the online business niche, I still decided to do a review about it as it does involve making money from home to some degree.
In other words, someone interested in doing online business might be interested in this method of making money.
The reason I’m doing this review is to inform people on whether or not VO Genesis will be of any help to them.
What Is VO Genesis?You can’t tell much by the name and the capture page for VO Genesis doesn’t exactly tell you what it’s about but VO Genesis stands for Voice Over Genesis, a guide that shows you how to make money as a voice over artist.
Voice over artists are actors that do voice work for television commercials, audio books, animated films, documentaries or any work that needs narration where you don’t appear in person to the listener.
This kind of work can be very lucrative and according to Voices.com, you could earn as much as $100 for a 15 second recording, $250 for a 30 second commercial and $3000 for an audiobook.
VO Genesis is written by Jenny Lewis (which I think is a pen name) and details how to get started as a voice over artist.
The author also offers several bonus guides that should help you once you’ve already gotten started and there are some additional guides that should help you make even more money.
My First Impression of VO GenesisWhen I was asked to do a review of VO Genesis, I fully expected it to be another one of those scams that promise you fast money doing very little work.
With a headline like “Discover a weird loophole I used to make $8250 in a month from home in my pajamas”, you have to be a little doubtful.
After taking a closer look though, I didn’t see any signs that VO Genesis was a scam. With voice over work, earning $8250 in a month is very achievable when you know what you’re doing.
There is a hint of hype in the marketing on the sales page which might explain why I was asked to review VO Genesis. However when I got to the actual product, I was glad to see that it was something people could actually use.
It’s not for everyone though which might be different from what the sales page promises. Is it for you? Read on.
Purchasing VO GenesisPurchasing the main VO Genesis product was easy. The product is processed through Clickbank which means you have a full 60 days to try the product and get a no-hassle refund if you not satisfied.
The guide is retailed for $39.95 but after clicking away a couple of times I was able to get it for $19.95. I paid with Paypal and was immediately sent an email with the link to the download page.
I wasn’t sent to the download page on purchase though. Instead I was sent to an upsell where Jenny Lewis offers another guide called the VO Genesis Accelerator that promises to get you into the top 2% of voice over artists, the elite group that commands the highest fees for their work.
I didn’t get an option to skip these upsells which would have been frustrating if I didn’t already know that I had the download link for my purchase in my email.
I didn’t buy the upsells (there’s another one still after VO Genesis Accelerator called Multiple Streams of Income). These are optional and not required for you to make money if you have the main product. Skipping these would offer you discounts.
Review of Voice Over GenesisThe actual Voice Over Genesis guide is very informative and I’d say that as someone who has no idea about the voice over industry, I would say that I learned a great deal.
If I was actually interested in doing this, I would be well informed and ready to get started. I would know where to start and what to do next.
The guide walks you through everything you need to know from what types of jobs you can do as a voice over artist to resources and websites you can use to get gigs.
Some of the things you will learn from this guide are:
- types of voice over work you can do (not all VO work will be a match for you)
- how to record a voice over demo to send to clients
- how to make a simple home studio (not as expensive as it sounds)
- developing your skills as a voice over artist
- websites where you can find the best paying jobs
- recording and editing your voice over work
Will VO Genesis Make You Money?Personally, I think that if you have the voice talent, drive and desire to become a voice over artist and you’re willing to develop that talent by getting a little voice training and doing the work it takes then you’ll make money.
If you think that you don’t have a great voice, or you’re not confident enough, you can still get over these hurdles as VO Genesis has tips that you can use in the comfort of your own home to help you. There are also links to workshops that you can take to enhance your skills.
To be honest, I don’t think that VO Genesis is for everyone. There are many that will be interested initially but will not do anything with the information given.
I’m one of those people. I thought to myself “Hmmm this sounds great. I wonder what I could do?”
After reading about having natural talent or developing what you have, I figured that my West Indian accent might hold me back in the “naturally talented area”. I don’t have the desire to develop what I already have so I guess I’m not going to be doing voice over work.
I’m quite comfortable with blogging and making websites as an affiliate marketer. If this is you as well then you might be interested in affiliate marketing (the type of business that I do) and you can learn how to do this through Wealthy Affiliate (my review), the same training site that I use.
If you think voice over work is something that you would definitely want to do considering it can make you really good money, then VO Genesis and it’s bonus guides is a great place to start.
I can’t tell you whether this is something for you or not, you just have to be honest with yourself and think about whether or not you have the talent (or willingness to learn), the drive and desire to be a voice over artist.
ConclusionAll in all, VO Genesis is a great guide that is thoroughly informative and provides you with everything you need to get started in the lucrative voice over artist industry.
It’s not a scam but it’s also not for everyone.
