How has the global marketplace helped your business to grow?
With such a wide framework of jobs to audition for and opportunities needing voice talent expanding by the minute, having an online presence and being where the business is is not just a good thing...it's a necessity!
Are you doing all you can to help yourself succeed?
Hear from voice artist, Dave Courvoisier, as he shares his story of working in voice-over and how the online marketplace at Voices.com has impacted his career.
Being comfortable on camera is a big plus when you're called out from behind the mic and into a video shoot. A friendly face and voice you may know from his work on television as a news anchorman at the CBS Affiliate in Las Vegas, NV, took us up on an opportunity to share some of this thoughts.
Dave Courvoisier relates, "When Voices.com asked for a little face-time, it was a no-brainer! Also, I wanted to support one of my favorite organizations in voice acting Voices.com, and since video ANYTHING is hot in Social Media right now, what's not to like? It was an honor to be asked to offer my perspective on this great profession."
Dave Courvoisier is an Emmy-award winning newscaster, and has won numerous national honors and accolades for his work with foster children through his weekly stories on "Wednesday's Child." Dave Courvoisier has been active in the voice over community for many years, especially by reaching out through his informative blog: http://www.courvo.biz
Although Dave is a full-time TV news anchorman at the CBS affiliate in Las Vegas, NV, he keeps a very active freelance voice acting business going. He's listed on Voices.com, and records commercial spots, E-Learning, and Medical/Technical narrations. Dave also is a true believer in the power of Social Media for marketing, promotions, and relationship-building. Dave has hosted and participated in numerous webinars and live presentations on the topic of leveraging Social Media for Voice Actors. Dave is a founding member of a new certifying body for voice actors called World Voices Organization, and is also a SAG-AFTRA member.
No doubt your opportunities have been expanding because of the global marketplace and new technologies.
