The answer lies on the Internet. Increasingly, the way clients source talent is online. Of course, clients might have a roster of existing voice over talent, but many rely on the top that up or look for new talent online. Of course, this all depends on the different parts of the voiceover industry. Voice over marketing is not like consumer marketing. Consumer marketing is where large companies market goods or services to the general public, otherwise known as consumers. Companies like Mars, Nestlé, Nike and many other brands mass market to consumers.
