Are you a current OR aspiring voiceover artist? Then you need to check out the "long-term" e-learning and audiobook platforms (including ACX/Audible) where you can land large jobs (5-10 hours production time) that most of your competition is afraid to apply for. As a result, you can TRULY become your own boss because you have weeks or months to complete your audiobook and can go at your own pace, set your own schedule. In addition, Allen explains the ins and outs of Amazon's ACX platform where you can find your niche, pay your dues, and self-market your voiceover business into "success" territory. With Audible, you can get paid upfront or on a royalty split basis, narrate fiction or non-fiction, and stand out from the crowd in auditions by explaining to your client what you'll do to help market the book. Speaking of marketing, if you aren't marketing your business 9 hours for every 1 hour of audio production, then today's episode belongs on your "must-listen immediately" playlist. Allen also tells us how to calculate your TRUE hourly rate (roughly 4 hours of time for every Per Finished Hour) and how to increase that productivity level through recording techniques such as punch-and-roll.
