How's Yours?

Greetings,

Have you ever heard that a first impression is lasting?

There are many instances in life where you will be making first impressions or have them impressed upon you. In voice-overs, the first impression that clients are given of you as a voice talent online (on the Internet) is often determined by your resume and the voice-over demos on your web page or voice demos submitted in an audition situation.

When submitting a voice sample for a job, particularly if there is a script included, it is wise to include a custom demo of the clients script (incorporating watermarks and the like), or a demo that best reflects their needs, for example, an automotive demo for a car dealership spot.

Consider the following:

Does your voice-over demo give clients a good taste of your voice type, skills, and versatility, both vocally and artistically?

Are your proposals free of grammatical errors and customized for each job that you apply for?

Do your price quotes reflect the budget range of the client or correlate with the rate sheets of professional freelance or union rates?

All of these components will shape the clients opinion of you, your voice-over skills, and will ultimately decide whether or not they work with you.

Some food for thought :)

Enjoy your weekend,

Stephanie
