I have a question for you.
Do you think voice actors have hit the saturation point when it comes to social media?
This question popped into my head when I read a few blogs and saw posts on VO Facebook groups this week that talked about some people blogging too much, while others lament the time that keeping up with social media has become on a daily basis (see Paul Strikwerda & Bobbin Beam articles below).
Others comment about certain social media platforms that they just ‘don’t get’, or don’t understand how they can be used to their advantage for business, so they get frustrated and give up on them.
It seems there’s somewhat of a backlash going on right now ON social media ABOUT social media, via voice talent.
As you know, I am a proponent of social media. But, I am the first to advocate it’s use IN MODERATION. It CAN be a valuable tool for voice talent, but YOU have to decide how to use it to your advantage and how it can help your business.
I’m interested in your take on the current state of social media for voice actors. Please feel free to leave your opinion in the comments below.
