Podcast iconHave you been part of our teleseminar series, "The Future of Voice Overs," over the past couple of weeks?

Tomorrow marks the third and final teleseminar in this particular series. We'll be talking about podcasting, where the opportunities lie and how you can best position yourself as a service provider in this exciting area of New Media.

Leesa Barnes joins us to share her expertise in "From iPods to Podcasting" live at 1 p.m. EST on Tuesday March 23rd, 2010.

The Future of Voice Overs

It's hard to believe that we are already at the end of our three week series on The Future of Voice Overs! We've really enjoyed this series due much in part to the wonderful response received from both those listening in and our special guests.

Over the last couple of weeks, we've gained insight about where exploding markets for voice over are going. To recap, we've received practical tips from award-winning audiobook narrator Simon Vance, gained a publishers perspective from Robin Whitten of AudioFile Magazine, and discovered hidden gems of opportunity in the video gaming industry with Michael Schmalz of Digital Extremes.

Bringing It Home With Podcasting!

In our final teleseminar for this series, we'll discover how to make money from podcasting and examine voice over's unique role as a major catalyst for bringing exciting, current and useful content to the masses both on portable devices and through channels online.

There is so much opportunity for voice over artists in this field! I've hired a number of talent over the years to record intros, outros and imaging for our Voices.com podcasts.

We'll also talk about it takes to plan a podcast, produce one and get it out to the public. There are numerous ways to make money from offering podcast production services and we'll be sure to discuss many if not all of them on the teleseminar this week on Tuesday March 23, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST.

Podcasting, though it's been around now for many years, is still akin to the wild wild west in terms of wrangling the medium into a platform that can be successfully monetized. Our guest, Leesa Barnes, has written a book called "Podcasting For Profit" and we look forward to hearing her take on how to this can be accomplished.

    As a "Preferred" Voices.com member, are there any plans to sell (or give) the mp3s of these teleseminars to all paid Voices.com members?

    Just checking....

      Hi Wayne,

      Thank you for commenting and for your question. I mentioned you and your LOST podcast on this teleseminar, in fact!

      We are definitely thinking of ways that more people can be involved with and gain access to the teleseminars as resources. I'll keep you posted.

      Thank you,

        Same question as Wayne... as audio from some of the past webinars has been made available, will this one be released, too. Unfortunately I entirely missed this call (even though I had registered for it) as I had a session at the same time. As I've recently started a podcast series on my blog, I'm particularly interested to benefit from the information shared on this call.
