Tell Voice-Over Clients Your 'Change
Request Policy' Before You Start Recording

One of the most important things you can do to ensure a smooth voice-over booking experience is to communicate your Change Request Policy to your client BEFORE you start recording.
I've updated my Change Request Policy to this:
When sending a Change Request, I either highlight the original script or list the full sentence to be re-recorded, the sentence before and the sentence after, so I know what the heck I'm talking about.
I also ask the client:
There is nothing wrong with educating and "training" your client, especially if this is their first project. It will demonstrate both your professionalism and your ability to communicate effectively.
