Episode_72: How Does Your Pricing Affect YOUR Work?

Seller’s Remorse?

Ever quote a price on a VO Gig only to regret it later? Did that mindset cause you to think something like: “Heck, I’m only getting $XXX for it and have spent too much time on it already?”

Ring a bell?

In Episode 72 I discuss why solid fees are important for our attitudes and our mindset s we approach and work on the projects we get hired for.

Episode_71: Why “Pay to Play” is not a Viable “Place” for Your #VO Business

What Coffee Cake & QVC can teach us about Voice Over

Don’t be a commodity. How do you differentiate yourself from everyone else if you offer your services in the same “Place” where everyone else offers those same services?

In Episode 71 I use a fun example of Coffee cake and QVC to discuss the importance of “Place” and how selecting where you do business has dramatic effects on price and your clients’ resistance to price. Be “Where no one else is.”

Episode 70: Be Careful Who You Take Advice From

Sometimes “Free” advice comes with a cost. Sometimes that cost is simply time to receive the advice and implement it. If it’s good advice then all is well.

Other times it can cost you BIG when you implement BAD advice.

In this Episode I use a recent coaching call with a listener as my outline for this episode where I take on the Voice Over Demo Mills and the Voice Over Commodity Marketplaces.

The DeFlame Diet.

So I have a great book I want to recommend to you. It’s called “The Deflame Diet: DeFlame your diet, body, and mind” by Dr. David Seaman.

http://voiceovermarketingpodcast.com/z886

This book is great. I’ve been eating this way for awhile now. If you’re a Voice Talent who has to clear their throat a lot throughout the day, maybe have some post-nasal drip, or are feeling sluggish and run down – you want to check this book out. The link above is an affiliate link through Amazon.com.

It was given to me by my trainer Mandla Nkosi. The book explains through scientific research that most chronic diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and a host of others are all caused by eating an “Inflammatory diet.” An inflammatory diet is one that promotes chronic inflammation throughout the body that over time leads to these diseases.

Sources of inflammation are refined sugars and grains – pretty much a good portion of the “Western” diet. The book explains how inflammation gets started and how it affects every cell in our body. It also explains how to “DeFlame” and live a healthier lifestyle. It’s not as crazy and hard to do as you may think. You just need to look out for a few key ingredients and eat whole, unprocessed foods.

Have you modified your eating plan to help your voice? Please share your thoughts with us below!
