Advice From Dana via Facebook

I've been a member since 2006, and I've had ups and downs, but here's some tips to make it better (they've helped me, anyway!):

1) Look at the auditions as an opportunity to hone your skills and gain more experience, and don't be afraid of giving potential clients a few different reads of a line or two from their scripts, to show your range;

2) Keep an eye on the weekly, monthly, and all-time rankings on the front page of the site, and track where you fall. This can be awesome feedback, even when you're not hearing directly from prospects. And don't be afraid to ask them to "Favorite" you.

3) Soak in all they (Voices.com) offer with the blogs, podcasts, and white papers. There's a ton of great info there that can help you mix up your delivery and communications.

I hope it helps!

To your success!!

    Dear Stephanie-

    I've heard of "15 minutes of fame..... but never 15 seconds!"
    After reading today's Vox Daily, I decided to take a gander at the Favorites page and to my utter delight I found my name listed at #5!

    Wow!

    I played the audio, and it was my Welcome Demo (I just posted 18 new demos last week), and it sounded good. I played the #1 gal and she sounded good....

    So I left the page to find out more tips about how to stay in the Favorites and when I went back to the page a minute later my name was NO WHERE TO BE FOUND on the list!
    Talk about fleeting fame!

    If I hadn't played my demo I would have thought that I was dreaming, but the combination of my ears and my eyes has me believing that I really was there, at the #5 spot, if only for a moment in time.....

    Just wanted to share that observation.....

    Best,
    Debbie
