Why you should have a pro voice on your business voicemail.

Hello everyone,  I would like to share an article  written by Jill Tarnoff that was posted on the voices.com website concerning the use of a professional voice for  your business voice mail and IVR systems. Quite frankly there are many businesses that could benefit from this and, with all the different stops in different communities where I work events this could prove to be a tremendous opportunity to have these types of recordings completed.   I often travel with my portable recording gear capable of broadcast quality recordings while I am on the road!  The important thing  to remember is that this valuable resource is available at a very reasonable cost for your business.

Voice talent and speech coach Jill Tarnoff shares her experiences calling in to book appointments with a healthcare provider and how the voice on an automated telephone system recording sets tone for the remainder of a call and speaking with a real person.

Have you ever thought of having a professional voice record your phone prompts?


2012 A Brand New Start!

The first quarter has been a hectic one so far in 2012, right now I am in the midst of refining my business plan, enhancing my overall marketing and branding! As part of my marketing refinement I have rebuilt my web presence by separating voice-over from my other business website and have built this new site dedicated to the voice-over industry. I have upgraded into the wonderful world of WordPress, and thanks to “VoxMan” aka Corey Snow for developing that awesome audio player widget for the sidebar! Kudos to Corey!

While I still have a lot to do, for those of you that have been to my old voice-over site you can see this website is a major upgrade from my previous site and will continue to evolve as I move through my branding refinement process.

As far as the blogging goes, I have re-evaluated my blog presence too and have decided to make major changes for 2012! People want to read something containing useful information. Content that they can use to improve their life or the way they do business, so my blogs from now on are going to do just that. I will be covering a wide spectrum of topics from, voice-over, audio production, recording, computer hardware and software, and various business topics that can help a wide diversity of folks.

If you happen to stumble on this blog with its new informational format and like it, please subscribe, and add me to your blogroll.

So here is to a great 2012 for everyone out there! What changes have you, or are you planning to make with your voice-over business this year?
