  • Business Planning in the VO World

    Over the past couple of months, I’ve been working on creating my own full-service Advertising Agency. In fact, by the time you read this blog, I should be in the “any day” stage of launching this particular venture. While I was putting together this ad agency, I was faced with a number of puzzle-pieces to…

  • Thank you, Rodney Saulsberry! (Vocal Warm-Ups)

    Every so often around the internet, you see folks suggesting vocal warm-ups for voice actors. Makes sense, right? I mean, a football player doesn’t just go out and crash into someone before they warm up. A basketball player doesn’t get a slam-dunk without a few stretches. That guy who has the world record for the…

  • What’s in your backyard?

    The most memorable day drip I never took was when I lived in Southern Oregon. Twice—in 1973 and again in 1980—I lived a half-hour away from the world-famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, and I never went once. By the time I finally went, it was twelve years later and I lived four hours away…

I first heard about it when he spoke at a Leadership Summit that I attended (along with 160,000 others) via satellite through my church. I had never led a Bible study before, but after hearing him speak about this book, it was…

  • YouTube Videos to Brighten Your Day

    Hasn’t everyone wasted hours on YouTube? At least, I sincerely hope I’m not the only one! YouTube really is a double edged sword because it is great for when you’re bored at work and need a quick distraction or for when you’re having a bad day and just want to see a video of puppies…

  • Find Your Niche!

    Have you ever tried to be good at everything, only to find you succeeded at (seemingly) nothing?  The problem may have been that you were focusing on two many things at once.  One strategy that has proven successful in voice over is “niche marketing.”  With this marketing scheme, you focus your attention on one specific…

  • The Art of Up-Selling in the VO World

    In delving into techniques of marketing in the voiceover world, have you ever considered up-selling to your clients?  In short, up-selling is a “while you’re at it” approach: once you’ve got someone on the line booking a session, offer them something else to go along with it as a package deal.  This tactic is commonly…
