This afternoon, I received a message from a potential client. He had some telephone messages for me to record. Yay!
How did this new client find me? It seems that I signed up for a message board/talent listing service called VoiceModels. I didn't even recall signing up. It must have been at least 2 years ago.
Nonetheless, I learned a valuable lesson.
Post your service everywhere! Why concentrate on only one service, when you can be listed on multiple sites at once?
I searched the Google Directory for Voice Over Production studios. There were 108. Looks like I have a new agency list to send auditions to.
Don't forget to be polite when dealing with production companies. They are usually busy and don't appreciate their inboxes being filled up with Megs and Megs of demos. Send a simple email introducing yourself and ask how and if they are accepting auditions. They will be happy to give you the information.
Just do it. What's the worst thing that can happen?
