Is there a reason for these pictures?


#1

Hello Fiverr Family,

I came across this page when I searched for Voice Overs on Fiverr and I was wondering if there is a reason that almost all the gig pics are head shots?

If there is a reason, I was wondering if I should change my voice over gig pic to a head shot.

Thank you in advance.

The gig sellers have obviously decided that head shot videos are the way to go!

There seem to be two schools of thought - show your face so people get a better idea of putting your voice with your face, or leaving your face off to create an air of mystery!

That’s meh…:alien:

I think generally fiverr likes to see a face in a gig.

In voicovers in particular, a face should be shown to make people want to hear the voice that goes with it. You are selling your “type” in a voiceover so the face is important.

That being said, perhaps having a gig in the voiceover category that doesn’t have a headshot, MAY be what gets you noticed in a sea of faces :v:t2:

I agree with @leahemme. I wouldn’t worry about it but you can always test the theory to see if you get more sales ;). I personally don’t have a headshot ( German voice over category) and I never had one and I seem to be one of the top sellers in that category.

I know the English voice over category has quite the competition, test it and maybe let us know down the road if it made a difference :).
Good luck!

In my opinion showing yourself on your profile and gigs shows that you are serious and are professional.

If I go to a profile and their pictures is say a football for example. I wouldn’t take them as serious as someone with a genuine picture of themselves.

That’s generally speaking, Not ALWAYS the case though.
