I feel I’ve done everything I can:
Composed a gig profile that is concise and contains all the info a buyer should need to make an informed decision.
Included a demo video.
Uploaded three audio demo reels
Added some FAQ’s that answer the majority of queries (on average) that I have received over the past 4 years.
And yet, I still get messages like this:
“hi sample plz”
“Can you send me a sample of the first line of my script? I want to see if your voice is suitable.”
It’s like going into an Estate Agents and asking to live in one of their properties for a month, to see if you will like it.
Or going into a Bakers and asking to cut some slices off one of their loaves to check the quality of the flour.
Or going into a Bank and asking if you can withdraw some money from the ATM to see if you like the feel of the keypad before you open an account with them.
Well, perhaps not so much with the last one, but you get where I’m at.
Read the gig page! Read it! READ IT! It’ll take you all of about 2 - 3 minutes. I mean I realise that you could discover a cure for a terminal illness in that time, but being resourceful would stop me having a nervous breakdown!
