Pilar's Pointers

Quick-share concepts from today’s episode:

  1. Knowledge is something you’ll never lose. Once you start learning, you’ll always be accumulating information. #VOBOSS

  2. Keep up with your clients! Although sometimes booking feels like random luck, buyers always go to who is top of mind. #VOBOSS

  3. Although short term success is rewarding, play the long game! Keep up connections and hone skills that will lead you to your long term VO goals. #VOBOSS

  4. Keep your eyes + ears open. You never know who is going to be a valued business contact. #VOBOSS

  5. Be nice to everyone. #VOBOSS

  6. Translate positive attitudes to your digital persona. Enter a Zoom meeting the way you would an in-person meeting. #VOBOSS

  7. There’s always an opportunity to learn. #VOBOSS

  8. You can get booked off a demo, especially in this digital industry. #VOBOSS

  9. Having multiple demos can give you a leg up. For bilingual talents, that could mean a Spanish, English, and Accented Demo. #BOSSVOCES

  10. Bilingual voces! Don’t be afraid of your accent. It might be the key to booking in both languages! #BOSSVOCES
