Hey, what’s up? My name is Kabir Singh. I’m a voice actor, poet and philosopher from Los Angeles, California. You could check out some of the work and testimonials at Kabirsvoice.com. I appreciate your time. Today, we’re talking about Bodalgo.com. I’ve been a member on Bodalgo.com for well over four years. It’s been a great experience to learn on the platform and to learn about the different types of clients that are buying around the world because Bodalgo is based in Germany.
I would say that compared to the other larger platforms, like Voices.com, Voice123 and Voiceovers.com, Bodalgo.com, is much smaller and niche specific. However, it really capitalizes in that niche. Specifically, they’re based in Germany. So you get a lot of clients that are from all over Europe, England, Ireland, Germany and a few other countries. And that’s what I love about Bodalgo.com. Is that if you have a strong U.S. business but you don’t have an overseas presence- It lets you tap into that market.
The auditions are much less frequent compared to other larger voice over platforms. You’re not getting daily auditions by the dozens here. However, you will find quality and trustworthy auditions. I mean, the guy who runs it does an excellent job. Armin, does an excellent job as a CEO. He’s very trustworthy. He’s very loved in the industry. So, he treats his platform with a lot of respect.
I encourage you to try the platform, experience it. I’ll book a job maybe once every few months on the website. And sometimes, they’re small jobs. Sometimes they’re big jobs. I mean, the last one I booked, was a very good video game job. So, It serves its purpose. Especially if you’re looking to tap into the international market. Then I encourage you to check out Bodalgo.com. Because it’ll let you do so in a very graceful way.
Learn a few different cultural communication words and techniques. At first, I did a bad job of understanding how people in Germany or England may communicate via email. It’s a subtle difference but it can be the difference in repeat business. It’s a good thought to experience and get better at communicating with international clients. You’ll hear terms that they may use or that you may not use and vice versa.
Another great tip, is with your demos, you wanna make sure that they’re not too long. On Bodalgo, I like to keep my demos nice and short. 60 seconds, maybe 90 seconds. But have a variety of them. Because with overseas clients, they wanna hear your vocal range. And they wanna see it in specific genres of VO. Maybe they’re doing explainer videos. Maybe they’re doing commercials. But, they’re very specific types in each country. Basic knowledge in dialects, accents, cultural references will all go a long way when dealing with international clients.
Do a good job of tagging your demos on the website. But, have them be very short and snappy. Other tips, I would say- Stay in contact with the Bodalgo blog, it’s excellent. Stay in contact with Armin, if you can. Follow his journey. Because again, the website is loved and adored in 2019 by a lot of the community members. Enjoy it, check it out, Bodalgo.com.
