It seems like every online marketer has suddenly recognized the power of audio. In fact marketer competition in audio product creation is really starting to heat up. If you are among those who are entering the arena, then you must do everything possible to create quality audio products that stand apart from the competition. The five tips that follow should really help move you forward in your audio product creation efforts.
Tip #1: Establish a recording studio. Your read it right; set up your own recording studio. It doesn't make sense for most online marketers to spend the money required to rent a professional studio. Likewise the professionalism of your product diminishes if there are all kinds of background noise when you record at home. That's where your own studio comes into play. You don't need to spend thousands of dollars developing a professional studio. Your home studio will be just fine if you simply soundproof a room in your house. Then add good-quality recording tools and equipment. Be sure your equipment includes a microphone, computer with sound card, a mixing board, and editing software to get started. As your product sales warrant, you can add more, but let sales pay for the additions.
Tip #2: Study and learn from the audio product creation experts. Learn who has already established themselves in this field. Listen to the products they have created. Learn from their tips and ideas. Use those tips and ideas to produce better, more appealing products for your customers. Remember that your goal isn't to become exactly like the experts you study. It is to learn that put your own spin on the ideas and tips they provide.
Tip #3: Work on your presentation skills. It is important that you practice. Become at ease with what you say and how you say it. You do not want recordings to sound scripted, and as if you are just reading it. That often makes them slow and boring to your listeners. One strategy is to use a script for the bulk of the recording, but to add appropriate adlibs as well. Don't talk in a mono-tone voice. Voice inflections can help to emphasize the key points, while your normal conversational tones and style will be best for the main points.
Tip #4: Slow as you go - Be sure to pace your presentation; not too fast and not too slow. Speaking too fast is often a problem. Yet the key messages are often lost to listeners who just can't keep up. Just as too fast of a pace will lose listeners, too slow of a pace becomes boring. The goal is to find a pace that is comfortable and that allows you to enunciate each word.
Tip #5: You must emit an air of confidence. Don't jeopardize listener trust and confidence by lacking confidence. You want your listeners to feel very confident about what you say. Don't allow your nerves to get the best of you. Don't sound nervous. Don't stutter. Don't leave big gaps that will create doubt in what you say. Leave every listener feeling you are confident, knowledgeable and intelligent.
Remember these tips to create quality audio products. They will impress your listeners. They will bring your listeners back to buy other products in future.
