    Hi Terry,

    I’ve heard so much about marketing through social networks, but there doesn’t seem to be a very basic, how-to guide on how to go about this. What I’m referring to is a tutorial for someone who is new to twitter, facebook, etc, Once you sign up and establish a profile….then what? I suppose what I’m looking for is some type of guide that takes nothing for granted or makes any assumptions. How do you get started making contacts…what do you say in a post to establish what it is your attempting to accomplish…
    Thanks.

      Hi Mark!

      These are excellent questions! I’m going to work on some bonus modules that will cover most of what you’re asking about.

      As far as what to say in a post, just be yourself and talk about what is going on in your day, projects you’re working on, etc. People want to connect with REAL people.

      Thanks for the feedback! 🙂

    Hello Terry,

    I wanted to add that the information on marketing with social networks was very interesting. I know you went out of your way to show and tell this tutorial. However, I for one appreciate the time you put into this module. You showed concern and care to this one. I was surprised to know that you don’t have to do a proposal before marketing. Anyways, I will make sure to click the like button on your page. Take Care.

    In one of the sessions, you mention aiming at 20-30 auditions per day as a goal. You might add in a warning for sites like Voice123 that when you do too many auditions, they penalize you.

    I was getting 2-5 auditions per day with Voice123 until I finally went Premium. I did about 9 auditions (and deleted several that didn’t fit me) over the course of three days. That was five days ago. I have not received *any* SmartCast invitations since then, even though I ranked highly on three of them.

    So, you might mention why this would be an advantage to being a member of several Pay-to-Play sites at the same time: you don’t run out of auditions so quickly. As a new VO artist, it’s discouraging to have paid a good chunk of money to get experience and some income only to be waiting around for more business.

    I’m determined to be a success and I know I will be. But it’s a bump in the road that would be helpful for newbies to understand how to get 20-30 auditions per day without being hamstrung by the Pay-to-Play sites.
