Why would I waste time writing something I’m telling you NOT to read? To make a point: too many of us (ok, ok, I admit it, I’m guilty too) are addicted to social media. While it’s important to have a social media presence, and to a certain extent, to be active on social media, too many of us get lost in the mire of the online time suck.
And, if you’ve paid attention to a lot of the voiceover discussion groups, there is a LOT of complaining going on. There are a lot of questions too, and I’m not trying to belittle any of these discussion groups; in fact, I’ve both participated in and gotten good information from, some of these discussions.
But how much more work could we be getting if we’d invest that time that we spend getting sucked into social media looking for new clients instead? Why not give it a try and see what kind of results you get? Instead of spending an hour on social media, spend an hour cold calling, or looking up production companies and sending them emails.
So stop reading this blog post, and start getting more work!
