Trying out Twitter's polling feature

I'm pretty sure I'm a little late to the party on this one, but I've finally discovered Twitter polls! I recently polled the Twitterverse to find out how those in the market for voiceover services are going about finding and hiring talent for their projects. Despite the fact that I promoted the tweet and added some focused hashtags, I didn't get as much participation as I had hoped. I still feel, however, that the information is useful and I will probably use the feature again in the future. Here are the results:

Are you taking advantage of this polling feature? What other social media strategies are working for you?

I hope you had a wonderful time over the Holidays and that your 2016 is off to a fantastic start! Winter was a bit delayed this year (no complaints from here!), but it has finally arrived in full force...BRRR!! I hope it's warm where you are, but if not, bundle up and don't forget the hot chocolate :D
 
Many exciting things have been going on around here and I can't wait to share, but first thing's first - 

Travel Alert!
Here are some upcoming dates in which I will be out of town with limited availability. 

January 28th-Feb 1st: Voxy Ladies Summit - Atlanta
April 15th-17th: WoVOCon III - Las Vegas
June 14th-16: Promax Conference - NYC

Feel free to contact me in order to schedule sessions before I leave or for after I get back. I will also have my portable recording gear with me for anything urgent that comes up.

I am beyond excited to finally unveil my latest commercial demo engineered, directed, and produced by the awesomest of awesomeness himself - Jordan Reynolds. This is the second demo Jordan has created for me (the first one was my most recent promo demo) and I cannot recommend him enough (he's also an outstanding voice actor, in case you're on the hunt for a male voice for your project ;))

Demos are available via the links above as well as on my website - http://fmvoiceovers.com
If you could use a female voiceover talent for your next project, please let me know or feel free to pass along my contact information to anyone that you feel could use my services. You can contact me directly at 1-877-570-0553, via email at fran@fmvoiceovers.com, or through my agents - Diane Schorsch at Play Talent AgencyLaura VonHolle at Heyman Talent, or Calle Hack at Lily's Talent

I also have a wide network of other talented and professional voiceover artists, so if you have something that needs either a male voice or just a different style of voice than mine, I would be happy to help out with that as well. 

If it's a male voice that you're looking for and you want a selection of talented, experienced, professionals, you'll want to pop on over to MVO: The Voiceover Guys. Trust me...you can't go wrong with these guys!

Thanks so much!
Fran

Baby it's cold outside (already)! Oh...and Happy Thanksgiving :)

It's that time of year again. The beautiful fall leaves have left the trees and it's most definitely coat weather - in my neck of the woods anyway. Despite the chill and busy schedule, I still try to find time once in awhile to enjoy the view ;). I hope that you've been able to step away from everything, even briefly, in order to rest, reset, and rejuvenate. I wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Travel Alert!
Here are some upcoming dates in which I will be out of town with limited availability. 

December 4th-6th: NYC
December 23rd-January 4th: I will have limited availability over the Holidays as I will be traveling and spending time with family. I wish a safe and very happy Holiday season to you and yours!
January 28th-Feb 1st: Voxy Ladies Summit

What has Fran been up to, you ask? Ok, maybe you didn't really ask, but I'll tell you anyway :)

I had a blast working on TV spots for CNN’s Great Big Story. They can be seen currently on CNN and HLN (you can also view them by clicking on the thumbnails on the right).

 

I'm so thrilled to be the voice of Carrington College on their recent TV and radio commercials, web videos, and on-hold messaging. You can hear a small sample here.

 

 

If you've taken a gander recently at my profile pic on Twitter, you may have noticed that I'm sporting a stache. That's because I am a proud Movember Mo Sista! This is my 5th year participating in this wonderful fundraising event to raise awareness about men's health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health issues. The team I am with this year is Team: MVO: The Voice-Over Guys (an awesome collective of male voiceover talent...check 'em out if you're ever in need of a male voice). There's still time to donate, if you feel so inclined ;).
