Many talent have discovered that they can increase their online visibility, send more traffic to their websites, and reach a wider audience by participating in the voiceover community at Voices.com.
A large part of why they do it is because they want to give back to their community, share knowledge, and inspire others.
Have you noticed that some people have more visibility at Voices.com than others? Find out why and learn how they do it. While doing these things, they also become a person who makes a difference. Does this sound like something you'd like to be a part of?
If so, there are several ways that you can contribute to your community at Voices.com.
Here's a short list:
1) Comment on Blog Posts
Commenting on blogs is a very important and surprisingly simple activity. By typing some of your thoughts and sharing them, your voice and opinions are heard, spurring on more conversation and inviting others to partake. You can also get a link to your website for commenting on blogs.
When you send us an article for inclusion on either VOX Daily or Casting Voices, you will be recognized by your colleagues and also gain another link to your website. If you have any articles that you have written, why not share your insight with peers online?
3) Send in Audio Feedback
If you prefer to record your thoughts, you can send in your opinions and comments to be included in the VOX Talk podcast. We record twice a week so there are lots of opportunities for you to be part of this innovative show. VOX Talk covers industry news, business, technology, and has a segment specifically for audio feedback. Just email your voice feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Ask Questions
Ask the Voice Cat and Master VO are blogs that enable you to ask the pros for answers related to the voice industry, your career and technology. Take advantage of decades of experience by asking a question of these gurus. Remember, if you have a question, there's at least 5 or 6 other people who may be wondering the same thing, so ask away! A link is also provided to your website at Voices.com if your question is published.
5) Produce a Segment for VOX Talk
Become a correspondent for the VOX Talk podcast. As a professional voice talent, you are gifted with a sonorous voice and the ability to use it to your advantage. Many of you also have copywriting experience and are expert creative producers. If journalism interests you or you have a keen desire to contribute to your community with your voice, VOX Talk might just be the perfect outlet for you!
Well, that's just five ways you can help to nurture and build your community. The sky is the limit.
Remember, at Voices.com, we're all about you. We'd love to hear what you think!
