Event Details

The VO2GoGo curriculum is an amazing series of over 30 live classes, building your skills in voiceover categories and the technology you need to master, giving you the tools to manage a thriving, digital-friendly voiceover career.

VO2GoGo live classes have won backstage's Readers' Choice Award as Best VO Classes and Teacher for the last four years in a row.

Every month, a new set of skills is explored and mastered, in a total of 4 classes, all in one day-long intensive.


This month's classes:

  • Voicing IVR and Phone Prompts
  • Creating Your Own VO Content
  • Mastering VO Marketing
  • BONUS: VO Workout Class


Details on each class:


Voicing IVR and Phone Prompts

There are over 10 billion phones in the world – one and one-half for every man, woman and child on the planet. 70% are business phones, and all phones have some sort of voice mail or outbound messaging associated with them. In the most profitable category of voicework in many portfolios, and the most plentiful of work categories, you’ll find a largely hidden market of work.

The skills you’ll get:

  • why this skill is the most lucrative in the 21st century
  • the type of voice needed for phone prompt work – it’s not what you think!
  • how the marketplace for IVR work has shifted, and how you can take advantage
  • why this union-covered work is so lucrative
  • and more

 

Creating Your Own VO Content

Hire your inner voice...and entrepeneur. Why wait for someone else to hire you? You've got a voice, and you're already in charge of You, Inc, so put yourself to work, and collect all the profits. Create your own content, piggy back on events in the news, big movie releases and wake up every morning with money in the bank - from people buying your audio products.

The skills you’ll get:

  • watching production calendars for potential tie-ins
  • the quickest way to create audio products
  • identifying and marketing to potential buyers over the web
  • how to build a library of long-tail product that sells forever
  • and more

 

- Between Class 2 and Class 3, there will be a one-hour walkaway lunch. -


Mastering VO Marketing

Become agile with the markets you reach, tradition and brand spanking new. Who would have thought that IVR, or apps, or digital talking outdoor signage, or e-books would all be vibrant markets in which to sell your VO skills? Or that any one of those might end up being the largest category of income for many VO artists? Learn how in this vital class.

The skills you’ll get:

  • identifying the usual suspects: radio, television and other traditional markets
  • the unusual suspects: digital products, IVR, training, toys, GPS devices and more
  • how to target a demo specifically to a particular market, for little or no cost
  • pricing individual and package rates for the strangest of markets
  • and more

 

Bonus On-Mic VO Workout Class

Each day-long intensive will conclude with Participants adding one or more pieces of work (time permitting) in front of the microphone, with direction and adjustment from the instructor. The Auditors will watch and make note of the adjustments given, and each Participant will receive the MP3 file of this (and the other) recordings made during the day.

The skills you’ll get:

  • work with alternative copy from the day’s content
  • bring your own audition or workout copy
  • be directed and adjusted, and recorded on mic
  • deepen your knowledge of self-direction and iterative improvement
  • and more

 

Copy provided? You bet.

 In this intensive, all students, Auditors and Participants alike, will be provided with lecture notes and VO copy. Participants will be directed and recorded three times throughout the day; Auditors will observe that process. The recordings will be given to each Participant to use as mini-starter demos (in advance of completed professional demos), showing their mastery of the particular category of voicework performed.

 

Explanation of roles in class

What is an Auditor?
