Tuesday Freebies

A successful blog gets noticed.

How do I know this?

Because I am inundated DAILY with requests from all sorts of businesses, enterprises, companies and individuals who want to write guest blogs.  


They found some obscure blog I wrote 8 years ago that mentioned something kinda similar to their product/service, and they want me to post a link to their site. 

Just so you know.  I rarely accept guest blogs, and I don’t accept ads either.

Yes, this thing is a labor of love.

Below are two recent emails I got suggesting I run them on my blog.

The first is a UK outfit seeking voice actors, and the second is a site online that offers free graphics.

I hesitated to post them ’cause the UK site is a little confusing, and the graphics site isn’t altogether free…but there they are for you to decide.

Hope you find something of use.

Hi there,

Hope you are all keeping well in these difficult times.

Our Dubbing VP, Raul Aldana, has shared your organizations details with me and suggested I reach out to you.

I would be keen for you to share some information with your members (or advise me how I could reach them). We are seeking more work-from-home dubbing directors and voice actors for our cloud dubbing services. We are experiencing a huge surge in interest in our services from our clients in media and entertainment (including Netflix, Warner and Disney+) as dubbing studios are currently shut down in key territories. We’re wanting to have freelancers apply to work with us on some of these projects, and have them continue what they do best (and continue to earn) at this challenging time.

The details we’d want to share with your members are here https://www.zoodigital.com/news/work-from-home-dubbing-for-directors-and-actors

 Let me know your thoughts.

Stay safe.

Offer #2


Hi There,

I know you’re busy so I’ll cut right to it.

I came across your post: https://courvo.com/2015/10/outa-control.html and I’d like to pitch my website for inclusion in the post – Pikwizard 

We have over 100,000 free images and videos on the site, with 20,000 of those exclusive to us. We are also adding new images and videos to our library daily and our ultimate goal is to get to more than 1 million images and videos.

We’ve got A LOT of pictures of people, which tend to be rare on free stock photo sites. If you check out our site and search for “office” or “meeting”, you will see the quality of images on the website. All of which are free to use without attribution.

You can also take each image and edit it on our graphic design tool, Design Wizard!

I realize it’s a pain for you to make changes, so I’d like to attempt to return the favor whatever way I can (Write the blurb? Share on social?)

If interested, you can check out the site here: www.pikwizard.com

Thanks very much,

David Coen
