My daughter started with a basketball training and development organization recently. She's no stranger to being the new kid in a group, be it for a new school, summer camp, or extra-curricular activity. So, I knew she wouldn't have any trouble fitting in. In a smart networking and publicity move, she wore her new gym t-shirt to her first practice... Why was the 7th grade gym shirt a stellar idea? 1 - The gym shirts for her school are personalized, so her name is written across the front allowing people to learn it and remember it. 2 - Wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the school's[...]

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[...]

Hire voice actor

Hiring a Voice Actor for your Business When you hire a voice actor for any aspect of your business, the actor becomes the voice of your business. Whether for marketing, explainer or product videos, for websites and social media, radio and TV commercials, voicemail, they represent your brand. Hiring a voice can be affordable, or cost prohibitive... ...depending upon at least three variables including who you hire to produce a project, the script lengths, and the usage of recordings.

Headshots

The Importance of Preparing for Profile Pics as a Voice-Over Actor Whether as a professional profile pic for business or, in my case, a headshot for my voice-over business, getting a good quality photo of yourself makes good business sense. Headshots can be a huge investment, so you need to plan ahead to ensure success and, therefore, make use of your photos for as long as possible. I can't tell you how many pics I didn't end up liking. That's why I put a lot of effort into preparing for any photo shoot. I want to make sure I look and feel my best and[...]

"PROFILE PICS" OR "HEADSHOTS"? There was a time, not so long ago, when a voice actor headshot was ironic, outrageous to some. Why would you include your picture, when it's the audio that people need to hear? Why taint the listener's opinion of your sound with your photo? How will they imagine your voice age, if they can see your face?! Here's the thing... while I agree that a listener does not need to see your face when selecting a voice for their next project, we are in an era of needing to present ourselves in the best light possible, using all the tools[...]

Hiring voice talent

If you are a producer, a marketing manager, or a creative services professional, you may have problems specific to your business and the hiring of voice talent. MONEY & ACCESSIBILITY Historically, quality, established voice talent have only been accessible through agents and union affiliations. From auditioning to completing the work, talent and clients needed to congregate in the same city at a high-end recording studio, with the cost of the engineer and studio, agent and agency, added to the bill. VAST AMOUNT OF "TALENT" While the costs of hiring a voice talent aren’t what they used to be necessarily, the floodgates have opened. There[...]

This year, I've given my entire voiceover business a total overhaul. Earlier in the year, I called it #VOUpgrade2016. I wasn't kidding. Once you start, its like peeling an onion... oh, the layers! The Studio There was a lot of experimenting, learning, equipment returns, and taking two steps back to take one step forward. Most notable is the studio. Going from a dynamic microphone (normally used for radio and TV) and moving to a shotgun condenser mic, is a game changer for me and had its growing pains. After several mic exchanges, I'm set - a Sennheiser 416. It's the current gold standard for many[...]
