Most of us know by now that you can pretty much use the internet to find the right person to perform any service you need. A mortgage broker, your new favorite CPA, a web designer, you name it. But have you ever stopped to consider that it’s also the perfect place to find people working in voiceover at your dream clients?
LinkedIn is by far the most widely-used professional platform online. This means that when you’re looking for an individual person they’re most likely going to be on LinkedIn. It can seem like looking for a needle in a haystack, but before you click far, far away, check out these four easy ways to find someone on LinkedIn.
1. Search by location.
If you’ve never used LinkedIn before to search, this is the easiest place to start. After all, you’ve already got something in common with your new prospect! That way when they do connect with you, you have an easy way to start the conversation by mentioning that you both live in the same area.
2. Search by company.
This one may seem like a no-brainer, but behind any brand or production company that you would like to connect with, there will be an individual person who works with voice talent. The key is to search for the company, head to the LinkedIn company page, then click “see all employees on LinkedIn.” After that, you can scan job titles and duties to find the person most likely to work with voice talent based on that employee list.
3. Search by job title.
This is a great option because the filters allow you to search for individuals that have a specific role. Just enter the job title and make sure the search filter “People” is selected. Another benefit is that you can look according to the corresponding genres you specialize in. For example, if you’re looking for eLearning, you would search for people like instructional designers and eLearning creators.
4. Search by school.
If you went to a large university, this is a fantastic search option because you’re already establishing a sense of inclusion as you begin the conversation. You’ll want to still search by entering a job title, but this time use the “Schools” filter and input your alma mater to find other graduates who would probably love to speak with another degree holder from their school.
