Here's what reviewers say:
Joshua Alexander’s “The Business of Voiceovers: Hobby, or Career” workshop in April of 2019 was a game changer. Not only was his presentation engaging and inspirational…it was full on JAM-PACKED with information that’s current in todays ever evolving VO marketplace. Joshua’s innovative ways to connect and secure work with potential clients is a testament to his success in the competitive field of voiceover. He basically pulled back the curtain for a behind the scenes peek of how he’s prospered, and THEN provided everyone with a playbook on how to do it themselves! (That was probably a dumb move on his part…but a major plus for those who didn’t point it out). In addition to the plentiful platters of food and beverages, Joshua’s passion and gratitude for the business of voiceover permeated from every pore of his being. That was another wonderful benefit everyone got to take home!
Joshua's classes are top notch! He has great material, an easy to absorb teaching method, and wonderful students to network with as well as learn from. Will definitely take another class!
I attended Joshua’s Marketing, SEO & Business Workshop for Voiceover Talent in November 2018. I came away with a WEALTH of information and a better understanding of how to optimize my site and keep it optimized amidst the ever-changing rules of SEO. Joshua’s style of teaching is relaxed, fun and very informative. In his many years of running a successful business, he has learned countless methods for maximizing his time and efforts without sacrificing excellence. Thankfully, he’s a generous soul who is happy to share is wisdom with his friends and colleagues. I highly recommend any of Joshua’s workshops; whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, there’s always more to learn and Josh makes it easy to stay on top of a rapidly changing industry.
Joshua Alexander is an excellent teacher and friend. I’ve taken all his workshops related to voice acting. How to become a serious voice actor, how to treat voice acting as a business and how to find out if voice acting is your passion or a hobby. He gives you an excellent and realistic introduction and uses personal experience as samples in them. On top of that, his advice is accurate and true since he is an active voice talent with more than 10 years of experience; he knows all you want to know about voice acting. Another plus is that the workshops are affordable, you can pay each workshop individually online, or at the beginning of the workshop itself. This is a great advantage over other workshops I’ve seen or taken, for if you are not sure if you want to fully commit to the education, the expenses related to starting are too much at the moment, if you were just looking to get your feet wet, or you simply decide voice acting is not for you, there is the advantage that you can stop going since it’s not a semester commitment or a program that you paid ahead before finding out if you were really into the subject or not. In retrospective I recommend anyone seeking to find out more about voice acting to contact with Joshua Alexander and take his valid and very relatable workshops about the world of voice overs, either because you want a career change or just want to find out more out of curiosity, I cannot stop insisting that these workshops are the best place to begin.
It was a pleasure to learn from him! Having worked before in VO, but in another language, and coming from other country, Joshua was the perfect instructor to guide me on my re-insertion to the VO market. Knowledgeable, funny and with a warm approach, he is definitely on top of his game and not afraid to help others to continue with their VO journey.
"I am VERY new to the voiceover industry and had literally no idea where to start. I attended one of Josh's workshops and was blown away!!! Not only did he keep every person in that room engaged during the whole program, but we walked away with priceless knowledge. I now have my "next steps" and know exactly what I need to do to get the ball rolling. I know what resources to turn to when trying to negotiate pricing with potential clients. I even know who to reach out to for coaching opportunities! If you are trying to break into this industry, or even trying to sharpen yourself as a voiceover artist, you NEED to consider Joshua Alexander. You will regret missing out on this!!!"
Onsite Voiceover Setup
Got a home studio but haven't got a clue how to get setup with your software? Or, do you need recommendations on hardware and software, including studio environment and sound dampening? I can help.
Email me for a free consultation on coming to your place (must be near Seattle), and physically setting you up and calibrating your recording environment, hardware and software with you.
FirstVoiceData(TM) Voiceover Business CRM & Stationery Setup
WOW this is a big one. I've trademarked FirstVoiceData (TM) - a fully-functioning CRM software suite that is personalized to you, and your voiceover business. It is specifically for voice talent, and it allows you to run your voiceover business, track your conversion ratio, monitor your Accounts Receivable, send contracts and invoices, send follow-ups to clients, and generally keep the finger on the pulse of your marketing! I use it myself of course.
If you have Microsoft Office 365 with Access or OpenOffice on a PC (or using either of those through Parallels, BootCamp or VMWare on a Mac) and a cloud account like Dropbox, you're good to go! I have a Microsoft Access database that I will customize to you, with your logo, along with personalized contract, invoice, and statement documents to be able to send out to clients for contract approval, and invoicing.
Audio Demo Videos
Confused yet? 🙂 Do you have Audio Demos? Of course you do! So let's say you need to have videos made from those audio demos. I can help you create something with moving graphics incorporating your logo, your contact information, and of course the demo itself, for posting to YouTube or Vimeo so your SEO score can improve.
