Check out the Ultimate Business Plan template for Voice Actors
Voices.com Offers a Cool Tool for Voice Actors
I am a huge proponent of having a business plan. I’ve been writing and updating business plans annually for the past ten years. It is a large undertaking, but critical to any business’ success. A business plan should ultimately be revised annually. Especially in any field which is in constant flux, such as ours.
Voice Actors now have their very own business plan template made specifically for freelance talent to build their dream voice acting business upon or update their current operations.
I am a member at Voices.com and subscribe to the Vox Daily blog. Friday’s edition included this little gem of information about a new product offering there. I purchased the plan template for $49.95.
It comes downloadable in .doc or pdf formats, and I paid easily through my paypal account.
I purchased primarily because this is just for us! And I like how it’s tailored to our industry, and escpecially the statistics it already includes. I must say how thankful I am to have the built-in market research, and pie-charts with essential detail, which I have found to be elusive to uncover in the past. This alone, will save me several hours.

Or, below review text and graphics copied from Voices.com’s promo on this product:
“Voice acting is one of the most segmented fields in the audio industry, short on facts, short on statistics, and one could say, short on business procedure. Voice acting was one of those businesses the majority of people found hard to define, pin down and map out a clear vision for financial success as a freelance voice actor, that is, until now.
At Voices.com, we recognized the need for a proven, statistics-filled business plan for voice actors that would prepare them for stepping out on their own as entrepreneurs working from professional-grade home recording studios and a blueprint readily accessible to established veterans moving from radio or television broadcast to voice acting full-time.
The major benefits of The Ultimate Business Plan for Voice Actors are that the business plan is full of concrete facts and statistics about the voice acting business, comprehensive research regarding business operations and procedures, sample recording studio equipment setups, a detailed marketing plan, a voice over rate sheet, and a variety of other bonuses including a sample invoice template, balance sheet, income statement and cash flow chart.”
