Party on, 


Welcome to my newsletter for December, 2006.  Allow me to update you on what's been happening in my corner of the voiceover world...

Remember that new Tucson ad agency I mentioned in last month's newsletter?  Turns out I've already received 3 gigs from them.  I've also done more voice branding work for the agency in Phoenix.  Business is definitely picking up.  I'd sure like to become YOUR voice branding talent.  Turns out I still have some room for those last minute holiday sale spots.  Let's get together and make something happen as we venture upon 2007!

I'm looking forward to great things for the holiday season and I'm always open to new business.  Feel free to contact me any time to discuss your next project.


Holiday Season is sneaking right up on us!  It's not too early to begin thinking about your holiday advertising.  If you'd like more than audio for your broadcast advertising or web site, consider Professional Voice Branding by Doc Phillips.  Snag me before your competitors do... or, before my schedule fills up.  You may hear demos of my professional voice branding by going to the home page of my web site - Doc Phillips Productions .  Gain direct access to my audio samples at the top.
