The Voice Over Rules Of Engagement

The Voice Over Rules Of Engagement

When we arrived at the inn in Sedona, Arizona, our expectations were managed from the start.

A brass plaque on the door informed us that check in was between 3-6 PM. We were to ring the bell only once. If there was a delay, we were to wait patiently because the inn keeper was showing another guest to their room.

In our room, we were shown two sets of towels and robes, one of which was for the pool. There were even two different colored washcloths, one for removing makeup and the other for dusting red clay off our shoes.

These somewhat strict “rules of engagement” for the inn-keeper’s convenience might seem an off-putting way to start to a vacation, but did we grumble and drive away in a huff?

Not at all! We can’t wait to go back.

But let me ask you this…do you have strict “rules of engagement” for your voice over business? A way you do things for your personal convenience?

Or are you working weekends, holidays and all hours of the night, afraid you’ll lose a customer if you don’t?

I believe this is a big “voice over mistake.” Watch this week’s training video and find out why.

  1. Thanks for the tips! Always valuable info and a reminder to keep on top of the VO plans. My job keeps me traveling with little free time just now, but I WILL get to your clad eventually…????

  2. Susan,

    Boy did I need to hear this! I have been letting my customers run roughshod all over me and I am finding it is not healthy for me. I will be gently setting some boundaries. You really pushed me forward on this and it is a definite “quality-of-life” issue.

    Thanks as always,

  3. Thanks for this info…Sometimes I do feel that I may be working more hours than I should…Now I won’t feel guilty about charging more for it and also re-arranging my schedule a bit.

    Thanks so much;

    Ernie Hodge
