Episode 27: An Interview With Joe Bevilacqua

Joe-Bev

Joe Bevilacqua

In this episode of the Podcast I talk with Joe Bevilacqua A.K.A. “Joe-Bev” about using your voice over and production skills to create products on your own and how to profit from them.

About Joe:

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist.

In 1975, Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Joe Bev’s personal mentor.

Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced any award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius XM Radio and others.

In 2012, Bevilacqua signed an exclusive distribution deal with Blackstone Audio, for his more than 40 years of audio work. He is releasing hundreds of hours of audio documentaries, comedies, dramas, autobiographies and more.

Bevilacqua  won a 2007 New York Festivals Awards for his “Tribute to Joe Barbera” which aired on NPR s All Things Considered. And his NPR Weekend Edition story “A Guy Named Joe Bevilacqua” won the 2004 National Federation of Community Broadcasters Award.

Joe Bev also produces & hosts four pod-casts per week: The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, Cartoon Carnival, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, and The Joe Bev Experience.

Episode 22: An Interview With Rudy Gaskins

Rudy Gaskins

I invited Rudy to discuss The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences™ along with the creation of the Voice Arts Awards™.

Rudy Gaskins

Rudy Gaskins is an Emmy-winning producer CEO and the Executive Creative Director of Push Creative, Inc., a full-service branding agency providing strategic marketing, graphic design and video/film production. The company also  provides voiceover training and media training for on-camera presentations. Recently, he celebrated a huge win after providing media training for Miss New York, on her way to being crowned the new Miss America 2013. Rudy is also developing branding and mobile applications for the Tribeca Film Festival and planning the fifth annual That’s Voiceover event in Los Angles and the UK.  Other clients include  Lexus,  FOX News
Channel, BET, American Express, Spike TV, ABC Television, Actors Federal Credit Union, History
Channel, MSNBC, and NBC Sports.  Drawing on his  former  experience as  a filmmaker and
writer/producer/director for PBS, Gaskins has expanded Push Creative’s production scope to
include program development and is actively developing TV and web series in several genres.

He serves as President and CEO of The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences™ along with the creation of the Voice Arts™ Awards and the 5th annual production of That’s Voiceover!™. The other 30% of my time is devoted to managing marketing accounts with Tribeca Film Festival, American Express, and several boutique firms and several individuals. For sanity, he’s currently training for his black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

During the Interview We Discuss:

  • The Power of Thinking Big
  • What An Award Can Do For You and Your Business

I’m Hosting a Webinar with VoiceOverXtra.com!

How To INCREASE Your Rates and WHY You NEED to Increase Them AND… How to Get Paid in Advance of Doing the Work – Or At Least Get a Hefty Deposit

John Florian has graciously invited me to conduct a webinar for VoiceOverXtra.com. It’s on July 9th.

You’ll Get A Full recording of the webinar – both audio and video!

Only $49. – It’s less than what you’d spend on take-out and what I’m going to share with you is worth many times that investment.

Click HERE to Register NOW!

I’m really excited to share some information with you that changed FOREVER:

  • The way I look at the income I earn,
  • How I spend my resources and
  • How I value my time.

I must admit, the first time someone shared with me the information I’m going to cover in the webinar, I was a bit frustrated and candidly, angry that no one had shared this with me before.

You may feel the same way when I share it with you

But I knew it made total sense and I’m sure once you see it, you will think so too.

It showed me that I needed to differentiate myself in the marketplace of the services I provide and compete in ways other than simply having the “Best prices.” {Best for whom?}

YES…Harry Legg IS his real name! What were his parents thinking?

Of course, the name works well for the entertainment business – you can’t forget it!Harry-VO Booth

Harry’s career has taken him to radio stations, recording studios, and even a record label. He moved from his hometown of Cleveland to work in over half a dozen cities including the top 3 markets of Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City. Besides voiceovers, Harry is an accomplished air talent having worked on-air at stations such as KIIS-FM Los Angeles and Kiss in Chicago. His awards include the NYC A.I.R.

Harry is the voice of The NBC Sports Radio Network and currently works out of his studio in suburban NYC. Besides stations here in the USA, Harry has a large international following with stations in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cairo, Cape Town, Cyprus, Hungary, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Jordan, Malta, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tasmania, Trinidad and Tobago, and Val-d’Isère. Harry’s other passion is martial arts. He currently trains at Body Mind Studios in Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Bagua Zhang, Ship Pal Gye, Kong Su Do, Akido/Hapkido, Udo, Kom Do and more.

Episode 20 Having A Mindset for Prosperity

In this episode I discuss how our attitudes about money and how we feel about others making money may be affecting our ability to earn more for ourselves.

I talk about:

  • The importance of the language we use, e.g. “Giving Back” vs. “Donating”
  • How we feel when others charge for services – are we jealous?
  • How More Customers DOES NOT equal More $$.
  • Reframing Entry Fees as Marketing Expenses
  • And More

Episode 19: Using Your Own Personal Voice Over Story in Your Marketing

Do You Have Time For A Story?

In this episode I share a fairly advanced marketing tactic with you about using your own personal story to grow your Voice Over Business.

I’ve got some great materials to refer to during this episode, so check ‘em out as you follow along.

  1. Click here To obtain a FREE copy of my Marketing Piece that uses my Voice Over Journey Story_PictureStory
  2. Click Here to see the Video I mentioned that Harry Legg made about growing his Voice Over business.
  3. Listen to how I use my story in my marketing. Will Lee from “One Thing Required” Podcast turned the tables and interviewed me!

It’s All About “Know, Like and Trust”

People buy (Companies don’t buy – people in companies make the decision) from people they know, people they like and people they trust . We help them get to know us better through sharing stories about ourselves and by sharing experiences with them

How can you use your story in your marketing?

Write it up. Include Naysayers, Supporters, Victories and Setbacks
Everyone has experienced all of these things and they can relate to them. They are called paths of entry. People identify with different things you share and they start to Know, Like and Trust you.
The question then becomes “How can we get people we want to do business with, to trust us”?

If you listen to my podcast you will hear references of my past experiences dropped into the program. I want people to know them.I share life experiences in the podcast. Put on your web page. How many times do you go to a web page and one of the first pages you click on is the “About” page?

  • Don’t be afraid to put something in your story that may bother or turn off some people.
  • Your story can act as a filter and keep people away from you that you may not want to work with and it will attract others to you who will want to ONLY work with you.

Yeah! We want to know their story! Give it to them!
Voice it as an MP3 on your page
Write up an article and give it to new clients you’re just getting started with
Make it a part of the fabric of your marketing

There is nothing unethical about this. Everything in the story is true (Remember it’s all about “Know, Like and Trust.) It attracts clients. It makes them comfortable with you.

Send me your Feedback and let me know how it goes!
