Thanksgiving is Around the Corner!

OMGosh, I must say I am guilty of this. I sometimes feel like the Thanksgiving crowd above when I’m out shopping in November!

And, you know what comes with Thanksgiving… Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday (also known as the Trifecta of Sales).  There’s even something called “Free Shipping Day,”  which takes place on the 15th of December.  These can be great for the businesses we are voicing for, but do they ever pertain to voice over talents?

We don’t have anything to ship (all is done digitally these days) and most of us work from our home, but it’s not like a Small Business Saturday atmosphere, where we can just invite people over to shop… However, we could take part in giving deals on Black Friday & Cyber Monday – but only if we want to reduce our rates for these days.  Which most find we don’t really need to do…

Otherwise, for a voice talent during the holidays?  It’s business as usual.

This year, I am most thankful that I’ve been able to be a solopreneur in the  biz since 2008.  I specialize in TV and radio commercials, video narration and voicemail systems.  I love to be involved in the creative process with a client as well, which allows me to carefully script and voice a piece that is perfectly suited to a client’s audience.  I just recently did one for a “Christmas Spectacular,” which I’ll highlight on next month’s blog!

I happen to think that voice branding can do amazing things for the businesses in this world, you just need to know which ways are best to harness the power of it. This year, I plan to give thanks for many things in my life, but also that the voice business has changed so much that I don’t have to live in New York or LA to get work.  The world is becoming mobile & I am glad I started early in 2008 to get a handle on how it works!  Mainly because I love to travel  🙂

Who doesn’t!?  If you travel this holiday, enjoy!  Either way, make it a wonderful holiday ~
