Audiobook Business consulting
Jeffrey's service is not acting lessons or performance coaching.
Jeffrey offers phone or Zoom-based business consulting for audiobook narrators who are just starting out, want to break into the business, or who are established, but are looking to push further ahead or find new streams of income. Also known as "picking the brain".
The curriculum is whatever you want to know. This is not a formal class. This is an hour via phone or Skype to answer YOUR questions.
ACX is the newest player in the field and the place to go to find new authors who want to get their titles into audio. But how do you make a deal with them? What are some things to look for before signing a royalty-share agreement? What's a good rate to charge for per-finished-hour? Should I outsource some of the work? I'm Union, what does this all mean for me?
Publishers and Producers
Getting work with a wide variety of publishers and producers is the end-goal of every narrator and the true milestone by which the hobbyist becomes the professional. Who are the publishers in this field? How do you get to know them? Should I attend APAC? How will I know when my demo is ready for submission?
Workflow, invoicing, rates
Knowing how each publisher works is critical to your success as a narrator. How does this workflow differ from ACX? Are the skills transferable? How do I deal with invoicing and accounting? What are the standard rates for the publishers?
The answer to these and many more questions are a phone call away.
