As a small business owner, I share the same concerns as those outside of the voiceover industry. For that reason, I pass along business tips I believe can be useful in almost any business with an online presence. Look for my Business Practice Friday Facebook and Twitter (#BusinessPracticeFriday) tips for information that may be just what you need for your business.
While being in business is not the same for all, those using the Web for all things commerce related have similar essential needs. From voice producers to those listening to final audio, we all need to know how to balance our social media campaigns, web presence plus the tone and timber of our communication. To me, the Web is like a vast ocean, so navigating cyber water is not for those who are prone to seasickness.
Running a business includes other skills like personal care, interaction with employees and partners, plus emotional intelligence. You can’t run a business successfully without looking at all sides of the process.
The information I share includes effective social media campaign strategies, trends in voice overs, time management tips, how to maximize downtime, and more. Also, I’ll share some “soft skills” tips like online etiquette, interpersonal exchange tactics for making clients into friends (or keeping clients as clients), etc.
If you come across some useful business information you’d like to share, feel free to send me a note or comment on my webpage. There is an African proverb that says,
If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.”
See you Friday, and break a lip.
