No Demo Dim Sum
No Demo Dim Sum
You’re off to the starting gates in the Voice world. You know you have the right stuff to make it in this industry but you keep getting told you’re not ready to make your demo or you’re smart enough to know you’re not ready to make a demo. Besides the obvious training solution (don’t bypass this step however), what else can you do?
Thanks to the wonderful advances in technology there are many things to do while you are training or preparing to launch into the voice employment line. If you know for a fact you are going to commit 100% to the industry then a website is a great start. You can either get one done for as little as $225 and up or you can build your own. The point is that its time to start preparing all the info you need to create a website. You have to build a map for your web designer with pictures, audio, a creative bio or resume, your contact info, any receprical links, past experience, logos, images and creative images for your branding such as logo, etc.
Beyond the prepping for the website there are so many other choices. Many free online sites allow you to connect with other like-minded people. There you start in building your support team. Many talent can’t afford training, however the World Wide Web provides sites and forums offering you a ton of free information that will get you to the next levels you are trying to obtaining.
You need to start creating a web presence, so join every informative website you can find and start connecting with industry people, websites, decision makers and more so that you can build a presence on the world wide web. Ask questions, join free or low cost webinars, join contests and more. There is much to do out there. The only one stopping you, is you!
