Episode 008- Working Remotely with Clients

Working remotely with clients!

Our latest episode of the Voice Recording Bootcamp podcast is up and ready for you to hear!

In this episode, Deb talks about finishing an audio book with 30 characters, all read by her. How do you keep the characters straight? You’ll find out. Also insights into client webinars that she’s been producing.

Scott heads to Hollywood, helping clients get their brand and their message out to the world.  Radio shows, podcasts, we’re doing it all these days, and sharing the experiences as well as the nuts and bolts of creating an interesting program.

Business time! Make things easy for the clients. From file delivery to communication, you don’t want to make them jump through hoops. They’ll love you for it. You’ll want to learn the basics of Dropbox, WeTransfer, Hightail, Google Drive, and FTP. Watch for expiring links!

Also, can you talk file formats? Audio clients like 44.1k/16. Video clients like 48k/16. And high end music folks may like the supercharged settings. Always ask! And know how to deliver it to them.

Become a team member for your clients by archiving their work FOREVER! If you’re better at it than they are, you’ll be the only game in town.

Tool Time! How can you do a voice over session phone patch for basically no money? We’ll talk about that in this episode. A smartphone headset and a little creativity and you’re on your way to world domination.

We have lots of adventures in working remotely with clients in this show. Phone patch, ISDN, SourceConnect, Skype. You can work with clients all over the world if you have the basic skills and tools. We join our voice artist Dave Smith in a session with an ad agency in San Francisco, and get a real world glimpse into a combination ISDN and SourceConnect session for the Minnesota Twins. It doesn’t always work as smoothly as we’d hope. It’s good to learn from others’ experiences. Fasten your seat belt!

So join us in the podcast, and remember to SUBSCRIBE! If you’re an iPhone user, the built-in podcast app is GREAT! We’re also listed with all the majors. We’re going to really start pumping out the information, so you don’t want to miss a thing.
