GKN 4/30/12 – The Power of YouTube!
Good evening, fellow Knick fans! You are Knick fans, right? Watching Game 2 against the Heat whilst editing an audiobook and taking a quick break to craft your blog? That’s a hot Monday night if I’ve ever heard one…
First off, I want to say thanks to those of you who attended my Edge Studio webinar last week. The topic was “Keeping Clients Coming Back”. It was fun!
As you know, I use as many social media platforms as possible to ply my trade and market myself. One I never utilized was YouTube. Sure, I’m on it all the time checking out videos and finding clips of TV shows & movies for various reasons, but in the service of my voiceover career? Not so much.
So, about two weeks ago I was putting together my quarterly newsletter and I was trying to think of fun videos I’ve narrated to link up. So I went on Youtube and started running searches on projects I have narrated.
Wanna know how many videos I found? Twenty six. I was shocked. Dat’s a lot of videos! So I built a playlist and named it “My Voiceover Portfolio”. I would really appreciate it if you checked it out and did the “Like”, “Share”, and “Subscribe” thing.
You know what else I did? I added the playlist link to my email signature. Voila! Instant visual resume!
TIP OF THE WEEK: Go to YouTube, run searches on your projects, and build a playlist. Take that playlist link and add it to your email signature.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. Ralph Waldo Emerson
STUFF!: I’m sure I’m not the first person to come up with this YouTube idea. Can anyone share ways to use YouTube as a marketing tool?
