Hey gang. Trying to get serious about my voice over career. So I got a domain from godaddy and need some help with the design and marketing ideas. I have mainly been in broadcast radio over the last 20 years. But love character work. Let me know what you all think I would love your feedback. http://voiceoversfast.comThanks John Gale
I don't have a website myself, but my only advice would be to keep it to one page. Lots of websites I see have links leading off the homepage that really aren't necessary - like a link leading to a page where you can hear or download the demos.
Unless you're an stage or screen actor in addition to being a voice actor - that would probably justify separate pages on the site.

Get the rates off the page. Besides the fact they're too low, you don't want to lock yourself into those. Suppose a client who has a :60 spot has a budget of $250 then comes to your site. Why would you want to immediately lose $151 due to have (unreasonably low) rates posted online? Look at the websites of all the pros out there. NONE, and I mean NONE have rates posted anywhere. It has a 'bargain basement' approach to it when you do that.
Thanks, Scott very good point. Hey I spoke with a friend of yours Kat Keesling today for a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and spoke highly of you.
I actually disagree with keeping things all on one page. You have the whole "above the fold" thing to worry about, and after too much information, things just busy and that's no fun.
However, in this particular instance, I don't see any need to have multiple pages.
With that said, lose the email address that's on there twice. Not only are spambots hungry for email addresses to harvest, but it's unnecessary when you have a contact form right there along with it.
Ah, I see you have your gmail address in the PayPal button. There are better ways of handling that with PayPal if you want. Up to you.
