So, as a voice-actor, you’re already halfway there, right?

Don’t take my word for it, A couple of  convincing articles on the pace of video marketing:

There are a gazillion websites extolling the virtues of video marketing (see above)…and new digital and online tools emerge seemingly every day that make the production of a video so so simple!  Check out WeVideo for starters.
