janet_mcleish.small.cropped.jpgVoices.com provides terrific, professional, world-wide opportunities and online presence for the voice-over talent.

Personally, I find this service of great value because I am able to audition for clients that I would not have otherwise had access to.

My knowledge, skill set, and confidence as a voice-over artist has grown exponentially with this service. I would recommend any professional voice-over talent to become a Voices.com member.

A Game Changer for Me and My Family

Jesse Adam Headshots Full.small.jpgI once worked for a very successful national company who's employee motto was "We succeed because I care". I wouldn't be surprised if Voices.com has the same motto written on their walls.

Right from the beginning, the staff at Voices.com have been so helpful, caring, and genuine. In all my experience with Professional Services, their client/talent care is second-to-none. They go above and beyond to make sure I'm being taken care of. They're always there to quickly answer any question or concern I might have. They know that if you take care of the customer, the customer will take care of you.

Their help, care, and service have enabled me to be successful in the voice-over industry in a short amount of time and I'm very grateful.

Voices.com has also been a game changer for me and my family.

After working tirelessly for 17+ years in marketing and seeing the strain those long hours can have on my family and myself, it's been an amazing privilege to be able to work from home full time; to be there on a more regular basis for my wife and kids through the ups and downs. In the short time I've been doing this, I've seen a lot more smiles, heard a lot more laughter, and actually been there to wipe the tears as our family grows closer together.

I thank God for how He's used Voices.com to make this possible.

Easy Career Transition

Robin Siegerman.edit.jpgFor the last 20 years, I've been a practicing, award-winning interior designer. Prior to that I trained as an actor in New York.

Over the years I've found many ways of combining the two disciplines.

As a result of my acting training, I've frequently appeared on TV and radio shows, have been hired to do training videos, hosted an internet radio show series, and was the voice for a few series of radio spots, all relating to my field of design. While in the middle of considering a possible career change, I was hired to do the Scottish voice of Professor Mcgonagall in a national Harry Potter radio documentary. I wanted to do more of that, but wasn't sure how to go about it when I heard about Voices.com. I was highly skeptical at first, but I decided to take a chance. I signed up for a year and hoped at the very least I might get a few auditions out of it.

As soon as I joined and completed my profile, I was getting more qualified leads every single day than I could possibly handle! It was a bit overwhelming and I wasn't sure of some of the etiquette, so I frequently called my Voices.com rep, Matt Webb. He was always responsive, supportive, and helpful.

Given my specialty is characters and accents, within a very short period of time I was hired to do 2 documentaries - one as the voice of Hillary Clinton by a production team in France, and another on American immigration.

I'm thrilled with Voices.com and know that my career transition would not be as easy without them.

Voices.com Got Me More Money

Larry Wayne.JPGWorking on an audio book through Voices.com was new to me!

When Michael Di Lullo called me and said he has a client who was interested in having me record his book, I was all ears! Amazingly, the author offered a fee that was much more than I would have received working through ACX. The first recording was completed and in a few months time, the client asked if I would record another book. How could I refuse?

Having Michael as the middle man was a great cushion. This author was in a rush to get the audiobook to market, and made some large complicated changes to the manuscript AFTER the recording was done. Once Michael explained to the author how time-consuming this process was for me, the author agreed to halt further recording until his editing was completed. Once that was done, I recorded the rest of the book.

Michael was by my side every chapter, listening and communicating between the author and myself. In the end, the author provided more money to complete the book than originally agreed to due to the excessive time spent on editing changes.

My audiobook recording experience with Voices.com is a good one and I would welcome the opportunity to do it again!

John Sebastian.jpgI had a long, successful radio career. Since then, in the last year and a half, I've launched a new vocation as a voice actor.

Voices.com has been the prime way I've marketed myself. In this short period of time, I've had more than 60 bookings! My voice-over and branding coach, Nancy Wolfson, has prepared me for this success and the many opportunities in the future.

One of the paid voice jobs for which I'm most humbled and proud of is a television campaign I did with The Salvation Army. It ran this past Christmas in New York City. I love this kind of read where I can passionately support ideas, causes, and businesses with which I resonate so strongly.

Voices.com helped make it happen for me.

alex-moria.small.jpgMy name is Alex Moria, and for 10 years I have been a voice actor, lending my voice to such major brands as McDonald's, Honda Motors, and Coca-Cola, among many others.

In my job, I try to always meet customer needs, providing clean audio with a high quality, fast delivery. The current market does not involve extensive time in the production phase, which means that speed is the key to success in this business. If you can offer a good product in a timely manner, without a doubt you will be a highly rated voice-over candidate.

With Voices.com, I found an efficient platform with complete simplicity that supports the fast-paced, high-standards of the industry.

Voices.com offers the quality that every customer searches for through their professional associates, all in a speedy way. All of this makes clients satisfied customers. As an added bonus, for talent, like me, we have a beautiful showcase of our work for potential clients to peruse.

I am very happy with Voices.com!

Technical Feedback Helps the Career!

Kenny Clemons.jpgI have been a member of Voices.com for just over a year. Never having done voice-over work before, three months into this career I received my first job. That job paid me enough money to pay for my entire year - with a little left over - of what I consider to be on-the-job training.

Since that first project, I had had several likes and one favorite, but no other job. Wondering what went wrong, I received some technical feedback from a Voices.com employee. I can honestly say that it was one of the most wonderful things I could ever see!

That feedback very possibly turned voice-over into my primary career! It is staff like that at Voices.com that lets me know I joined the right organization.

KimHandysides.small.jpgI love Voices.com - the people who run it, the site, and the opportunities for work.

I recently passed my two hundredth 5 star review after being on the site for about eighteen months.

Although I've been successful in the voice-over industry for over twenty years, it's amazing how much doing a couple dozen auditions a day - instead of a couple dozen a year - improves the skill set.

Voices.com is a like a fitness program for my craft, and it pays off! For example, here is a link to a recent explainer video I voiced recently for The Werehaus for Ruvixx. I'm particularly proud of it!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yh4PxL17tVs

Sell Your Voice on Voices.com

Van-Page-Patel.jpgI have been a member of Voices.com for less than a year. As a voice-over actor, you have to do many auditions to get work. With the incredible tools Voices.com gives you to use, half of the work is already done! Instead of going through the entire process only to find that the client is looking for a female or someone in their 20's with a British accent, Voices.com takes away the surprises so I can get right to work without any delays.

As well, Voices.com has a system that not only hand-delivers clients that are looking for your specific specifications (ie. male, middle-aged, English-speaking), but they also let you know up front how many others have already auditioned for the job you are looking at, the deadline for auditions, and the language you need to audition in, all with a price range of how much the client is willing to pay. Once you are awarded the job, and the client is satisfied with the final product, Voices.com immediately releases the money to your account and you are paid via PayPal.

I am a voice actor with several different voices to showcase, which includes everything from Wolfman Jack to Clint Eastwood to Walter Brennan. Voices.com makes it easy to do so with unlimited demos and space to share story and background for potential clients to view.

Whatever your vocal need or the vocal talent you offer, Voices com has something for you!

Next time you need to showcase your product or to sell your voice, Voices.com is the place to go first!

From Professor of Acting to Voice-Over Actor

Priscilla Hagen.small.jpgAbout a year ago, I had the opportunity to retire early from my position as a professor of acting and voice at a Midwestern university. When I considered what to do in retirement, I knew I wanted to continue my career as an actor in front of the camera and behind the microphone!

While waiting for calls from my agents, I thought I would try Voices.com to pass the time and work on my auditioning skills.

My involvement with Voices.com has not only become an enjoyable creative activity, but also provides potential to earn additional income! I am having a blast working with the professional staff and navigating the super easy-to-use website. Voices.com staff are so supportive, and I love the words of encouragement written on our checks!

In my former job, I was a theatre dialect/accent coach and I have been able to put those skills to work on selected auditions and jobs that require those skills. I have booked jobs for AARP, Marriott Hotels, Johnson & Johnson, and my first indie film trailer!

I love Voices.com!

Job Audition # 10,000

Lauren Holladay.edited.jpgI noticed something cool today. As I was wrapping up my auditions for the day (only because I have a job to do from Voices.com), I noticed it was job audition number 10,000!

Wow!

Seven years ago, in 2009, I began working on projects through Voices.com. Ten thousand auditions later, I am a much better voice talent and consistently at the top of the company's Top 100 female voices list. I just have to step back and go "WHOA!" at all that has come my way because of my membership.

Ten thousand is a lot of auditions, but I'm thankful for THAT many opportunities! While I can't land them all, I've have hundreds of repeat clients come to me from Voices.com That makes me a happy, happy girl today!

Julanne.jpgI always appreciate the power of professionalism. At Voices.com I had the opportunity to work with a team who has created an atmosphere of success for both the producer and the talent as clients.

Even though I am new to the industry I immediately felt supported as a result of online prompts through Vox Daily, state-of-the-art technology and resources, an entire sales force, and inside lines of communication.

As a result I was matched up and landed my first commercial!

Innovative staff helped me create a profile worthy of the attention of top producers, matching talent with their expectations.

Company specialists are readily available with advice and to assist with the audition process, thus allowing me to record, submit, and get paid through streamlined processes in place for every transaction. And in the end? A customer review!

Voices.com supported me in my goal to create an amazing customer service experience and further my career in the industry.

Thank you, Voices.com, for a stellar experience!

Paige Williams.small.jpgIn 2013, I decided to take some time away from my voice-over work to be a stay-at-home mom.

When the tot started school, I was looking forward to getting back into the industry! I was nervous, though, since it had been some time since my last voice job. After careful consideration, I decided to renew my Premium subscription with Voices.com.

Within the first week I had been hired by a client for a role in a Belgian animated film. How exciting! The following week, I was chosen for another project advertising childrens' toiletries. I'm so glad I re-joined Voices.com and I can't wait to expand my client base.

Thanks Voices.com!

Heidi Scott 2.cropped.jpgI joined Voices.com at the end of last year.

To be honest, I had my reservations as to how much work I would get, as well as how easy the site would be to use.

I quickly found out that working with Voices.com is like working with a team!

For any questions you want answered, either email or ring and you get brilliant support. The website is easy too - upload your bio and demos and in come the job opportunities. There are also tutorials online to help.

I've done two jobs so far, one of which was a voice-over for a company in South Africa. They created an amazing video, and just added my voice without me needing to travel. I have also been paid within 30 minutes through the website via PayPal.

Brilliant.

I am just about to start a large project that needed a little guidance as contracts are involved. Again, there is nothing for me to do as Voices.com has it all in hand!

I can't recommend them highly enough - it is like being part of an awesome team!

Voices.com Protects Both Parties

Jude Dexter 2.jpgI have been with Voices.com for 6 years and I have had a consistent influx of quality voice work in that time.

It is a rare thing these days to be able to say that anything lasts. In my experience with Voices.com, there are many unwavering, lasting qualities that their company should be proud of. First off, I have never come across an Account Executive that doesn't uphold the most professional, warm, caring manner. Everyone I have worked with has made me feel valued as the artist, just as much as they value the customer on the other side. I had a client for one particular job who was quite challenging and witheld payment for longer than most. They kept sending over additions to the script in dribs and drabs. The Voices.com team were kind enough to also release the funds to me piecemeal, so as to be fair to both parties. Everything was handed smoothly and with diplomacy.

Apart from the fabulous army of staff, the infrastructure of the inner workings seems to be quite unique. I have yet to encounter another agency that holds money in escrow for the artist. I have worked on competitors' websites in the past who do not offer this and, as you would imagine, there have been times I didn't get paid. This is an excellent mechanism put in place by Voices.com to protect both parties.

I am very appreciative of Voices.com's reliable source of work and absolutely always pleasant experience. Thank you - long may it continue!

- Jude Dexter
