Hi, I am Sue and I’m native German and a professional voice over artist and singer. I have already spoken and sung for German TV-stations, web commercials, explainer videos and everything else you can imagine. I’m based in Berlin, Germany, but my clients hire me from around the world.
I mostly record authentic commercials, corporate videos and – of course IVR messages.
Long time before I started as a voice over I worked as voice director and sounddesigner. Als I was singer in band. So I combined my knowledge of how to sound with my voice with the experience of the voice director who knows what he wants to hear and started as voice artist.
I love to speak IVR as I come to get to know companies that I wouldn’t have found before. It’s so interesting which companies exist where and do what. I always google them when I get a booking, just because I am so curious.
Something you didn’t know about me: I was on stage as background singer and musician with some well-known European music stars.
I think having a professional voice mail is so important as it could always be the first contact to your potential client or employee. It should still feel warm and welcomed even if you don’t reach the person directly you wanted to speak to or have to wait until someone is free to talk to you. People always conclude from emotional facts like “how professional does the voicemail sound?” to the professionality of the company. This is like an audio doorplate, like the first date with your client. Take it seriously and welcome it with a professional voice mail.
