What George Foreman Has to Do With Your Voice Over Career

What George Foreman Has to Do With Your Voice Over Career

I once shook hands with the famous boxer George Forman and have a picture in my office to prove it.

He was as cute and nice as he was in those commercials for the Forman Grill.

Over 100 million of those grills were sold and George was paid $138 million for the right to use his name.

George is a great entrepreneur. But he also had another great characteristic -the ability to make you like him and make you feel like he was your friend.

The ability to be likeable and form relationships is key as you grow your voice over career. But what does that mean?

Don’t great relationships take time?

Of course they do! But there are some easy ways to speed up the process, especially when you’re meeting people on line and over the phone.

Forming great relationships with your voice over prospects and customers is the subject of this weeks Inside Voice Over video training,

  1. I feel this video was very helpful. I’m very good with one on one when I know a person, but tend to be shy on first meetings, therefore, networking and relationship skills are something that I need to work on. I appreciated the part about keeping up on studios and companies.

    I have found a plethora of studios in my area. One question I will have is how to find the right one.

    I’m loving thisclass

    Thank you,
    Mary Morrow

  2. This is definitely what it’s about, and though I know that, it’s also one of the things I’m most concerned about in my own efforts. Yes, I think I relate to people reasonably well—but then don’t we all? When the proverbial rubber meets the road, will I be able to sound *sincere* when chatting up a potential client? Or will I sound like just another phony-baloney plastic-banana salesman?

    Thanks, Susan. I love these tidbits!

    • David, if you take a sincere interest in the other person and get them to talk about themselves you’ll be fine. NOthing phony about that. Thanks for your comments!

  3. Thanks for this tip…Hope you had a Great Blessed Christmas…Looking forward to all you have to offer in inspiration and information in 2017


  4. Thanks Susan this advise makes alot of sence.

    I can get rid of nervousness by googling a prospect.

    U will know more about the client than most or at least

    the minimum amout for the client to take me seriously .

    Thanks , Lee

  5. Good advice. And not just for voice over, this applies to any relationship you hope to build. Show an interest in others and take the focus off of yourself!
    Thanks Susan you are an inspiration!

  6. I think this sounds good in theory, but in reality, the potential client is likely to be thinking, “Yeah right”, what does this person on the phone really want?”

    I think it would be very difficult not to sound phony.

    Now if one happens to meet the potential client in person, then the conversation would be much easier. However, meeting in person does not seem likely.

  7. After watching the video a second time, I see the validity in knowledge in the company and mentioning it to the person to whom you are speaking. Everyone loves a compliment. In addition, it provides an icebreaker to lead into your introduction.
    Thank you!
