The relationship between a voice talent and a voice seeker can be a very simple one, if we so choose. A talent provides a voice. A seeker provides a payment. Sometimes it ends there. Sometimes it repeats.
But what if that relationship could be more? What if, as a talent, it doesn’t just stop after the delivery of the audio and the receiving of payment? What if there was more that you could do for your client. More that you could offer?
Giving Back To Your Clients
Since we’re rolling into the holiday season; deny it if you wish but we all know it’s true, it got me to doing some thinking. Christmas can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But I believe we can all agree that one of the messages at the core of the holiday is that of giving.
With that in mind, here’s a few ways you can give back to your voice over clients, not just during the holidays, but all year around.
- Post their project on your site with a link back.
- Share their video throughout your social networks for free promotion.
- Buy their product.
- Use their service
- Post a review on Amazon, iTunes, Yelp or wherever appropriate.
- Blog about your client, their product, their service or their brand.
- Give them a tweet or a retweet, a status update or a share.
This list is really only the beginning. A mere scratch at the surface of possibilities limited only by your imagination.
Customer Or Partner
You could choose to treat your voice over clients simply as another customer. A cash for service transaction. Or, you could choose to invest in that relationship. To come along side them. In essence, become a partner with them. And many times, it doesn’t have to cost you a dime.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a lot of fantastic client relationships where everybody wins, than a long list of one off customers that gave me a one time payday.
Don’t be afraid to give back. To do more.
