Episode 29: What Does Voice Over Have in Common With Tapping a Hammer…(?)

Short Episode This Week!

Intro Music excerpted from Rush’s “Countdown” on their Signals Album

 

Short Hammer Story on How Knowing What Value You Bring To The Table Can Help You Justify Your RatesHammer

We frequently get push-back from clients and prospective clients on our rates – Hey it’s just reading out loud Right? … right.

This episode features a short story and some other real life examples from my world that will help you re-frame how you approach this topic.

Re-framing the rate question allows you to bring in your life experience to your performance and skill set.

Differentiating between the simple “Audio File” and the performance within the audio file is how you can charge higher amounts for your voice over services.

With that in mind you need to use your personal story in your marketing.

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.
