Sonic Sunday — 05/22/2022

Here are a few thoughts and items on matters sonic -- voice, sound and audio -- that we hope you will find interesting. As always, we would love to hear from you.

If you are a digital marketer, one of your bottom line concerns is the health of your SEO. The blog posts that you publish, your social media activities, the media that you earn, the backlinking work, the website that you are constantly feeding and pruning -- all of that is, at least partially, done with the goal of ranking your website in the searches of those who are looking for your products and services.

This week, we share three solid articles on how audio and voice can help you with your SEO:

1. Quote of the week: "Whether it be in the form of audio logos, music, voiceovers, podcast, radio, and streaming audio ads, or functional sounds (such as the ‘ping’ of a messenger app on a smartphone or the sound that your car door makes when you open it), brand sounds leave a lasting impression."

2. Worth reading:

3. Worth listening to: The latest episode of The Sonic Voices Multicast.

4. Worth watchingThe latest episode of Lingofest. This past week, we premiered Part Two of our interview with Dr. Catherine Breslin. Coming up next this Wednesday is Part One of our interview with Dr. Maria Aretoulaki.

5. Guess the movie: And now for some fun! Can you tell what movie this is just from the audio? Go here and try it out.

  • For this week, the movie was Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho! Surprisingly, this turned out to be a stumper! Better luck next week.
