Need help with a better video

Hi Fiverr family!

I’ve been trying to boost my sales here on Fiverr. I’ve got a voiceover gig and I’m aware this is a somewhat saturated category on the site. As you can see though I’ve been getting good reviews, which I feel is key for scoring more orders. However the number of orders I get is fairly low (I’m still not at the Level 2 seller, :frowning: ). I was looking for ways to improve the look and feel of my page and one thing has stood out to me. My video is really boring!

I’m a voiceover artist at heart, and the video was whipped up on the day-of just to get the page going. I think it needs an update but I’m not sure what I should be going for. Should it be something longer with more demo material (~60 seconds?). Or perhaps a VIDEO video instead of graphics + voices, with me in front of a camera? I’m just not sure what would be best but I imagine this must be a contributing factor to a low conversion rate.

What would you guys suggest? Also if there’s anything else you can point out for improvement, that would be awesome! Thanks so much!

The best VO sample I’ve heard was one that used the entire minute and took micro-clips of different styles/accents and string them together. It started out with a peppy radio ad style, then a children’s book narration that sounded very cheerful, then a funny voicemail greeting with an accent, etc.

Toward the end were a couple of short clips of soothing voices, like something you would use for a tea ad or a meditation audio. It was really good.

For the video part it was still photos of the artist looking professional and some scenery. I was surprised how much could fit in 60 seconds. It was all done in a studio so the emphasis was on great sound, but the video made you feel like you knew the artist.
