8 Reasons Why You Should Join The I.V.S.
- Broaden your knowledge: From informative articles and videos to tips, ideas and bonuses, we help keep you up to date with the latest educational information on ventriloquism. Staying informed helps you to grow in the art.
- Connect with ventriloquists around the world: You’ll find yourself making friends with ventriloquists throughout the world, becoming a part of the global community!
- Impress your clients: Being part of an organization that boasts members such as Jeff Dunham, Terry Fator, Jay Johnson, David Strassman, Willie Tyler and more, impresses clients and helps them see you are serious about your art.
- Enhance your network: Networking is key for success. Being a part of this organization provides a common bond with your fellow I.V.S. Members. It provides a sense of security, trust and support.
- Become a mentor: Participating in forums, group chats and discussions is a great way to help others. Plus it allows you to use your peers as sounding boards so they can help you.
- Give back to the community: Has someone helped you? Now it is your turn to pay it forward! Consider writing an article to share with the I.V.S. Spotlight. Or perhaps a video of how you practice, pack, set up your act, etc. Sharing great content makes you visible in the community and strengthens your position in the art.
- Strength in numbers: You may have ideas or desires that you haven’t had the strength to act upon. With the I.V.S. you have an established support system of experienced people who want to help you succeed.
- Stay Inspired and motivated: It is important to be proactive and discover things along your journey in life. Joining the I.V.S. will help keep you inspired and kick your motivation into high gear.
We offer you three ways to join this site.
As a free member of the site, you will have access to all the free content materials available. Plus we continue to add more as time permits. You may also purchase Premium Magazine printed copies of the I.V.S. Spotlight. Each printed issue runs about $15 plus shipping. Unfortunately, the online Spotlights contain videos in addition to the numerous articles. Obviously the videos don’t play in the printed magazine, but the written content and photos will still make each issue a pleasure to own!
