Hoping you are safe and well.

What an odd time it is. This time last month people hadn’t started stockpiling loo rolls let alone gone stir crazy staring at the same collection of walls for too long. As we contemplate the weeks ahead we might be filled with dread or hope, but as an industry that usually works from home and more or less self-isolates anyway we’re going to cope a lot better than some people.

Here at B Double E we’re working as usual. Helen is busy working on some websites and branding revamps and Rob has been advising a lot of VOs who’ve never needed a home studio before how to get set up. We’re here to support the industry in whatever way we can through this time. Obviously give us a call if you have some work for us, but if you’re struggling and just want a chat then we’re here for that as well. We've arranged a couple dates for virtual Friday work drinks (we hope you join us so we don't just talk to each other!) – details in the events bit below.

We hope that this newsletter finds you healthy and happy, that the lockdown is short and we can all come out of the other side of this with some new perspective that takes us from strength to strength.

Stay safe.


Setting up a Voiceover Studio During a Lock-Down

Rob has written a handy guide for those VOs needing to set up a studio during the lockdown. He wrote it 'cos he’s getting loads of enquiries and needed to save some time. But you can read it if you want. Here it is.
Instead of writing a new blog this month, Helen has decided to highlight some of her previous posts you'll hopefully find useful at this time. All have tips and advice on how you can improve your branding, website or SEO. Most are free and they should all help your business.
Here are a few tips to help improve your website.

From ways to improve your SEO ranking, to tools to check you have no broken links, and tips to get your site running faster.

What is a Google Business Page?
Why do you need one?
What difference will it make anyway?

Put simply – this is one of the easiest ways increase your chances of a higher Google search ranking for your website. It's FREE, simple to set-up and a great way to boost your brand too – what's not to like?

Would you hire a lawyer that emailed you from a hotmail address?
Would you hire an accountant that had a gmail email address?
Or would you presume those emails were from spam accounts?

For this reason (and a few others too) it's important NOT to use a free email address for your business. If it's a change that's been on your to-do list for a while, now is the time for action. If you think I'm talking rubbish, read on and let me see if I can convince you otherwise...

The Beginners Guide To Ear Training
with Rob Bee

Thursday 23rd April
3pm BST  /  7am PDT  /  10am EDT  / 0.00am +1  AEST

Gravy For The Brain Members: FREE, Non-members: £29
As important as it is to know how to use your hardware and software it’s possibly more important to know what you’re listening out for. In this webinar Rob will take you through the initial steps of training your ear to hear like a sound engineer.


We're in lock-down, so we're not able to go to any in-person events and socials, but here are a few virtual ones we know about...
Friday Work Drinks with the Bees
Friday 3rd & 17th April  ::  4pm – 5pm BST

at The Pint & Rabbit (aka Rob & Helen's offices via Zoom)
Helen really does love working from home, but one of the things she misses (and one of the things Rob always got jealous about) was Friday drinks in the office. So, we thought we'd bring it to your home office. Grab your favourite beverage, hop onto Zoom and join us for a chat.

Friday 3rd April, 4pm  :::  JOIN US HERE
Friday 17th April, 4pm  :::  JOIN US HERE
Gravy for the Brain's Happy Place
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday  ::  12 noon & 8.30pm BST

Click here for links and time zones
The rather wonderful people at Gravy For The Brain are offering free-to-all space to chat (that's right – you don't have to be a Gravy member to access this). It's a non-structured place to chat about anything - be that voiceover, coronavirus or just to say hi to people. 
OneVoice Conference 2020
7th – 10th May

The World's First Online Voiceover Conference!
Obviously we're sad that the OneVoice Conference won't be an in-person event this year – it's one of our annual highlights – BUT we're super excited that it's going virtual.
CLICK HERE to find out more and to get your tickets.
Thank you for reading and keep safe!
