Voiceovers And The VO Strategist – The Not Silent Blog 5/28/19

The VO Strategist. That’s me!

Even the VO Strategist has to take some time off to do human-type stuff. This week I’ll be at the Audio Publishers Association Conference (APAC) and most of the related festivities & workshops. Since I’ll be busy running around Manhattan with all of my audio book homies, this is a good time to make a couple of announcements…

Announcement #1!

I’ve been producing voiceover demos for a little over a year now. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some fabulous voice talents who make me look much better than I really am. 😉 I’d like to share them with you so please check them out at https://www.vostrategist.com/reviews. If you’re interested in producing an eLearning or Explainer Demo, drop me a line and we can have a chin-wag about it.

Announcement #2!

The VO Strategist Shop is open! https://www.vostrategist.com/shop

As of right now there are two kinds of goodies in the shop right now. The first are some free templates to help you run your voiceover business. They’re listed as one dollar because Wix won’t let you post free items, BUT if you use the promo code in the product description you’ll get a 100% discount.

The second kind is my video series. This is a quick and inexpensive way to learn about voiceover genres, the business of voiceovers, and voiceover marketing concepts & strategies. As of right now the catalog consists of:

  1. Learning to do eLearning

  2. Explainer Videos Explained

  3. Marketing Basics

I will be posting more free templates & videos in the coming months so stay tuned!

A huge thank you to all of the students who have trusted and believed in me for the past seven years. When I started coaching, I was terrified I’d be perceived as just another predatory hack. I’ve done my best to serve the voiceover industry by giving back to a community that has changed my life and been so, so kind to me. I am continuously humbled and continuously striving to learn & grow as the VO Strategist, a voice talent, and an aspiring good human. 🙂
