The One Big Advantage Of Webcast Classes

Hey, there!

A couple of months ago, one of my VO2GoGo student-clients was disappointed that he couldn’t reserve a Participant seat in one of the in-person live VO2GoGo classes. Fact is, the class he wanted was sold out.

And when I suggested he jump in as a participant in the live webcast class I was teaching, he thought it was a lesser option.

But…all that changed when he realized one big advantage to taking the webcast class.

Here’s the note he sent me:

David,

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you thank you thank you for suggesting that I take this month’s online Internet-based class.

I didn’t think it was going to be as fun or effective as being in the Burbank class – you know, lots of people, a break for lunch, working out in front of the class on the microphone, with you there to give your coaching.

But I was wrong! So wrong! First, I was in my jammies. I’ll man up and admit that. I wanted to be comfortable, you know?

And, I could grab a snack any time I wanted. So that was cool.

But here’s the biggest advantage, and it was a great great great thing to discover: when I took the live webcast class, I still “worked out” in front of the class, with your coaching and direction and all the other people online listening, AND (this is the biggie) I was working on OWN MY HOME EQUIPMENT, so I could see how everything you were talking about would be usable in MY STUDIO, right then and there.

(I don’t know if you remember, but at one point, you asked me to measure how far away I was from the microphone, by making the Boy Scout Salute and placing myself that far away from my AT2020. That was great, because I was too far away! And I was able to do that RIGHT THEN, and my takes sounded so much better!)

So I just wanted to thank you again for suggesting I take the live webinar version of the class. I still love coming in to the live in-person class, but the webinar class has it’s own advantages.

Cheers,

David

I’m so glad David realized this – I’ve designed the online class around that very thing: using your computer, your AT2020 USB Plus, your earbuds, your sock and in your home studio space, so you can instantly put what you’re learning to use.

And you can sign up for this month’s classes here.

Hope this helps.

David

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
