My blog page is taking a little sabbatical. Your reading my blogs is an honor. I hope you have found my suggestions and advice helpful to your personal and professional life. I expect to resume blogging on voiceover related subjects in July, so I suggest a few of my earlier writings as food for thought for your June 2019.
Set it and Forget it? Not In Voiceovers
Talent spiced with training and marketing can make for excellent voiceover success. But unlike cooking a meal in a slow cooker, a voiceover talent must check and recheck their business to make sure it’s developing correctly and meeting success goals.
Kindness: Shared, Remembered, and Returned
Speaker and author Bob Burg once said, “All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like, and trust.” Do people trust you? Do people like you (and do you care)? Are you genuinely kind to others? Don’t underestimate the power of kindness.
Get Ready for your On-the-mark Voiceover Elevator Speech
You’ve checked your business progress and treat others kindly. Now, let’s wrap up the month by making sure your “elevator speech” is on point. Your voiceover speech doesn’t have to be a canned response. It should be something tailored to each situation and include all the essential facts about what you do. Preparation is vital. Take time to narrow down the main points you want to communicate with others in about one minute.
Thanks again for all your support. All my best thoughts as you give your best performance and break a lip.
