Hitting the Target (Market) with your Demo

As a voiceover artist, you’re probably already familiar with the concept that your demo is your calling card, and understand just how critical it can be for securing work in the industry.  In today’s rapidly expanding digital landscape, it’s more important than ever to be able to speak to  a wide variety of potential clients, many of whom may not have ever had experience in hiring voiceover talent. Today’s demo needs to be more than just a showcase of your voice, it needs to have an underlying marketing and advertising strategy that is specific to your genre, as well as the ability to target the markets that you intend to reach.

This FREE webinar will present methods to assess your current marketing practices, evaluate your potential target markets, and discuss possibilities for aligning those strategies within your demo.  Students will gain a better understanding of how to determine their specific target markets, and how a clear and concise demo strategy can help them get work in a competitive industry.
