Well, I have mentioned in past posts that I was having a heck of a time working with the SAV website editor and another voice actor mentioned another site. Wix. I went and read the reviews and looked at prices and checked out a few others and decided that Wix was indeed for me. I have now posted my fully functional website at http://www.ddholley.com. I have my demos posted and even a picture. I’m still working on building my brand visually, but for now I am using my picture across all platforms to keep it the same. Start locally, move forward globally. I do need to put something together for CRM, an excel spreadsheet might work for local contacts, but once I move past the local guys, that just won’t cut it. I’m thinking Zoho is a great place to start.
I made my first contact (ish) with a local ad agency today. Yes, it’s Sunday. Yes, they’re closed. Hence the ‘ish’ after contact. I wrote a short, succinct email on their website contact form, checked it for spelling and grammar mistakes and sent it off. I ran over to my spreadsheet for contacts and put all of their information in and copied the email I sent them to the page as well. As soon as I did that, I realized I’d forgotten something in the email. My phone number! It’s ok, I have my website address in it and the site has my phone number on it. But I need to make sure and include that information in the future. Live and learn, right? I set a follow-up date on my calendar so I can reach out again in a couple of weeks if I’ve had no response. So begins the self-marketing grind. 🙂
