THE PATH TO SUCCESS

Posted on November 14, 2012 at 11:03pm 0 Comments

I’m no success guru.

Not a clue about 7 steps to great wealth, or whatever.

The closest I’ve ever come to closing a sale involved the words, “Please bring your purchases to the register.”

But I have learned a thing or two about connecting with clients and walking through open doors of opportunity. To be honest, it’s no secret. Or at least it shouldn’t be. So, I share these five simple personal discoveries with you.

1. My job is to meet my client’s…

DANG I'M GOOD!

Posted on September 22, 2012 at 10:27pm 0 Comments

One of my good friends who runs a studio where I get to offer up my voice over craft, finished up a job that I had voiced.  He leaned back in his chair and said, “Dang, I’m good!”

 

I laughed and said, “Hey, that was my awesome voice over!”

 

The ad rep was there and he chimed in, “What?  That was my incredible writing!”

 

The client, who also happened to be there, laughed out loud, “It’s a good thing I’ve got such a great product to make you guys…

A VOICEOVER BUTT-KICKING

Posted on June 5, 2012 at 1:18pm 0 Comments

A few weeks ago I was asked to speak at a VO get together on the East coast. The subject I was given was, “How To Take Your Voice Business To The Next Level.” We couldn’t make the schedule work out, but on a plane flight I put down some thoughts that I would want to share if the opportunity had worked out.

So, here you are, for whatever they’re worth: Five butt-kickers to get you going.

1. Quit focusing on the words.

Start focusing on the listener/viewer. What is it…

REALLY? CONVERSATIONAL?

Posted on January 25, 2012 at 9:59pm 3 Comments

There’s been a lot of discussion over the past couple of years about how clients want more “conversational” reads and delivery.  As voice talents, we are constantly asked to do something “conversational” like Dennis Haysbert, or Denis Leary, or Morgan Freeman; or the one I get all the time, Sam Elliot (How come women are never asked to sound like some female celebrity?).

Well, what do clients really mean when they ask for conversational? 

I’ve started asking new clients to give…

THE DAY SANTA GOT DRUNK

Posted on December 3, 2011 at 12:26pm 0 Comments

I had one of the oddest voiceover experiences ever earlier this week.

One of the sheer pleasures of my work as a voice talent is that I get to work with some of the most creative people in the world. I rub headphones with the most awesome clients, the most creative writers, the most inspiring voices, and the most amazing engineers in the world (how’s that for the most grammar abuse?).

It’s an unbelievable gift. I treasure it more than I could ever express. But earlier this week…

Thanks Dan.  I'm checking out your marketing group.  I'm just getting used to the VU, so it may take me a while to get a handle on things.  It can be a bit overwhelming--I appreciate the welcome.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Dan.

I've spent some time looking over the group's postings back to Jan., 2010. Looks like an interesting group and some very useful information. I am surprised that with 828 members and the importance of marketing to one's VO success that there's not more posting activity.

At 9:34am on May 15, 2011, Leesha Saunders said…

Hi Dan.  Thanks for the invite.  I am still learning my way around the virtual VO world, so I appreciate your message.  This is a great site, and I hope to increase my participation over the next few weeks.  Thanks, and I'll look into the group.  :-)

Yes, Dan, I know ...  I have been in business for myself for many years .... but not this business ... lots to do, if this old dog is going to learn a few new tricks!
At 9:15pm on May 13, 2011, STEVE BLACK said…

Hello Dan,

Thank you for the welcome, and the invitation. (Ah, yes ... marketing ... the voices in my head groan in unison "oh, do we have to?") ... I will have to check that out to discover the fun part of marketing.

Hi Dan,

I just installed an ISDN in my homestudio. I really would like to hear a professional opinion about my acoustic conditions. Would be possible to do a test session with you? so you can hear my audio quality?.

 

Thanks
