Today is Halloween, a day that kids throughout the land adore because it means they get free candy, just by saying the magic words Trick or Treat! Judging from an e-mail forwarded to me from a friend, trick or treat also may be the outcome when dealing with a service provider like a voice talent, or, in this case, a cake decorator.
The story, according to the e-mail, was as follows:
at our Little Rock claim office.
One of the supervisors called a Wal-Mart and
ordered the cake.
underneath that write “We will miss you”.
too funny not to keep it.
The moral of this story is: You get what you pay for!
Whether shopping for a cake decorator or the voice talent for your next project, do you really want to go to the place that promises the lowest price and tries to be everything to everybody but doesn’t do anything particularly well? Or, would you rather consult with someone who is a specialist in their craft, carefully collaborates with you on your exact requirements and guarantees your complete satisfaction? Remember, the one offering the lowest price may also be offering the highest number of mistakes. As a professional voice talent, I always want my clients to feel that working with me was a TREAT!
Just some food for thought for adults on this day when food is on the minds of the kids….
