Would you like to use your voice to help others online by teaching them a new language, giving them advice, or simply promoting their company, products, or services? If so, there are several sites that will pay you to talk to others online or on your phone. If you happen to be one of those individuals who have a unique speaking voice, you can generate a substantial income for yourself by creating podcasts that others can listen to.
Once you get enough subscribers or a decent audience, you can start promoting products and services from various affiliate companies and advertisers and earn a commission from those sales. In time, you may even get some sponsors that will pay you for a mention in your podcasts.
But if you are just a beginner or thinking of using your voice as a way to make money on the side from home, there are a few companies that have an ongoing need in this field that you can check out.
Before you do, here are a couple of tips that will help you to make the most out of your God-given voice.
- Make sure that you have good reception on your phone as well as suitable speakers on your computer that will be able to carry the sound of your voice.
- Try to be as natural as possible when you are speaking with others as well because this will help you to be less nervous and possibly eliminate any excessive anxiety you could develop that may decrease your volume or cause you to stumble over words.
- Practice speaking from your diaphragm to improve your natural voice. (I remember this tip from school).
