Have you ever been travelling and missed your exit? On one particular trip I was on a tight schedule and missed my turnoff. I couldn’t find another exit for five miles! Backtracking, I knew valuable time was being wasted!
As a voice over talent revisions can seem like a waste of time; like backtracking on a trip. Why? Because once the original VO is delivered it’s easy to think that all is good and the project is “in the books.”
But then…a revision!
Let’s be honest, when you’re in the midst of new pressing VO project, revisions can be a hassle.
I look at revisions differently. I see them, not as a backtracking waste of time, but as a critical component to voice over customer service and marketing success.
I do my best to get small revisions back to clients within an hour of receiving them, and if a client requests lots of revisions, I at least reply immediately to let them know I will get to them very soon.
I encourage you to rethink revisions, and here’s why:
And so, the next time your client requests a revision don’t think of it as backtracking, but rather as a critical component to customer service and marketing success.
All my best to you until next time,
