Marketing your with voice over promotion is quite difficult, years ago ad word was a great way of voice over promotion, you got your credit card out signed up and with a little cash to splash you could be seen and booked.

<h2>ISDN or Not to ISDN,that is the question.</h2>
To connect to other studios instantly you need ISDN.
It allows you to hook up with radio stations all over the world and opens up a bigger market for your voice over business.
The trouble is in the UK its very expensive to get set up I have give a list of current charges .
so what do you do?
ISDN or Not to ISDN
at the bottom of the blog, I know the figures are high and don’t forget the cost of the calls as well have to be factored in.
Most radio stations should they book you will dial in to you.
The alternatives are you can use SKYPE but at the moment the sound can be a bit dodgy, the one that a lot of voice over artists are using is Source Connect from <a href=”https://now.source-elements.com/”>https://now.source-elements.com</a>
which at present is free, the other service IPDTL and can be found at<a href=”https://ipdtl.com/”> https://ipdtl.com/</a> they charge a yearly free and is UK based.
I suppose its all down to what you want to do, if you think you can get lots of radio commercials then it mbe the right thing to do to get ISDN which although is considered old tech is still used by the vast majority of radio stations in the UK and abroad also many production houses use it as it is very stable.
You will also need a bit of kit to connect to isdn which can cost upto £2000 called a codec which basically turns your telephone line into a something that will then sound good enough to use, but there are new kids on the block like <a href=”http://www.ipdtl.com”>IPDTL</a> that may finally put an end to expensive ISDN charges, so I will check out IPDTL and see what people are saying about it and who might be using it.
