WHY I WELCOME UNSUBSCRIBES I've been blogging for several years. Despite naysayers saying that blogging for voice-over is superfluous, plus, all the competition, I keep on keepin' on. But, I welcome unsubscribes. Why? I am blogging for, what I feel, are all the right reasons: -to have content and share, reaching my clients regularly in order to stay top-of-mind, -to express my brand and image through my words and stories, -for SEO content (debatable, but I believe it's a worthy effort), and -to use as a creative outlet - it makes me happy. So why in the world do I welcome people from unsubscribing from my[...]

As a waitress, I used to know, almost to the minute, when food should be up in the window after I placed the order. In voiceovers, we are able to read scripts to time almost to the second. This sort of internal clock seems to come automatically, (after repeated practice, of course.) Timing is everything. In conversation, in comedy, in cooking…it’s crucial. Turns out, this is my 100th blog. 99 blogs and I’m proud to say I haven’t dropped the ball. My favo(u)rite subject? Time. Last blog, I wrote about finding my inner meter. A couple of times, I’ve blogged about our investment[...]

We work at improving in every way, every day, and though there are waves of discouragement, there are also times for enjoying where we are, looking at how far we've come, and for reassessing. Life is moving VERY fast. And as we take the bull by the horns as an entrepreneur, or simply as a human, sometimes the pace is overwhelming. To reassess is valuable because we grow when we learn from what we've experienced. A few things I'm reviewing, reconsidering, reflecting upon, and re-assessing... REVIEWING: VOICE HEALTH I've been hit with a cold. I know it's a pain for everyone, but, if you are recording your voice for a living, it is more frustrating[...]

  To work within the structure of a plan allows me the freedom to live in the moment. I’m a planner. I have been fascinated by, and perhaps obsessed with, time management forever. On that note, I have planned out my blogs for the year already! Gasp! What?!? Yes. But, knowing me, I will absolutely stray from my list. It’s why I’ve rarely picked out my clothes the night before or made a strict meal plan…I like to choose what I’ll wear, eat, or otherwise, when I arrive to that moment. Hypocritical, perhaps…but, to work within the structure of a plan allows me[...]

Adding Audio to Your Content - Part Two - What and Where? Creating and sharing audio content makes good business sense for me as a voice actor. In Part One of my blog "Adding Audio to your Content", I mentioned that ALL business owners and sales professionals could benefit from adding the element of audio, not just those of us who are selling our voice. What to say? Introduce your business, or yourself, with a recorded greeting. Here's an example:[audio mp3="http://natashamarchewka.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/natashas-greeting.mp3"][/audio] An elevator pitch - a compelling 30-60 second story of what you do… A call to action - something you would[...]

Adding Audio to Your Content - Part One - Who? As a voice actor, someone who uses and sells their voice for a living, showcasing my voice and having an archive of recorded blogs is an obvious choice for me. Adding audio to marketing adds to the multi-media dimension, offering readers more for engagement. Lucky for me, Linda Daley of Daley Progress has embraced my audio blogs as she is able to listen to it weekly while completing other tasks! But adding the element of an audio file isn’t limited to voice actors. Including a voice in your content, be it a[...]

Hello Dear Reader! I am taking January off from blogging - both hibernating in Halifax and rejuvenating in Grand Cayman! Thank you for your readership in 2014. I am truly grateful. Back to it in Feb 2015! The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog. Here's an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people. Click here to see the complete report.[...]
