Some days we get diamonds and some days we get a lump of coal. Today we're going to talk about what to do when you get low-quality audio from your client and how you can address it. I'll tell you a few of my own war stories and some of the technical tricks I learned to deal with bad audio. We'll also discuss setting realistic expectations with your clients and how to have honest conversations with them at the beginning of your partnership. Just as important, I'll also talk about setting realistic expectations for yourself. 

If you're worried about adding sub-par audio to your portfolio, don't be. I'll give you some strategies on using alternatives to client-recorded audio and how you can use low-quality audio to your advantage. I'm also going to go over filler words in speech. We'll talk about basic guidelines for what to cut and what to keep and how to stay true to your client's voice. If you're ever having one of those days where you just don't know what to do, come on over to the Mastermind Group. We've all been there or will be some day. You're not alone!

In this episode, we cover:

- What you can talk about with your client before they hit record

- Trouble-shooting technology issues with your podcaster

- Examples of audio editing you can use on your portfolio

- Making your audio sound great while maintaining the speaker's voice

- How to talk to your clients about audio issues

Thanks for listening! I'd love to continue this conversation over on Instagram @laurenwrighton
