How can you work toward getting an increased number of opportunities and booked voice over jobs?
I've got a few ideas for you on what seems to be working for a number of talent experiencing success at Voices.com... that, and some bonus tips and hints that may change the way you attract business for the better.
What does it take to get work at Voices.com?
Whether you're attracting clients to your Profile or auditioning for jobs, you want to be putting your best foot forward and presenting prospective customers with your brand and how you can serve them.
Every time you audition, there are opportunities to do this is a very unique way, however, most people forget that their Profile is more often than not the source of work opportunities from clients interested in your talent specifically.
You'll want to make sure that you are:
à¹ Keeping all fields in your profile current and complete
à¹ Making use of all the tools available for promoting your voice at Voices.com
à¹ Auditioning regularly
The keys to the kingdom and your subsequent success all directly relate to how well you've optimized your profile, showcased your demos and how you approach auditions. We covered a lot of this in our teleseminar on Power Profiles.
Based upon what I've heard, these talent:
1. Were the right voice for the job
2. Quoted an amount that the client is prepared to pay
3. Customized auditions (both demos and proposals)
4. Made the client feel at ease and reassured them of their professionalism
5. Added value to the customer and had a Unique Selling Proposition
6. Were able to identify and relieve their customers' "pain"
When you get right down to it, people who book as their own agent have mastered the arts of communication and marketing and are able to meet the artistic and technical needs of their clients.
Attention to detail is another quality that can earn you someone's business.
