An Amazing, Steady Stream of VO work

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

July 20, 2015

Kristen HagopianHuge shout-out to Voices.com!

My Producer suggested I put my professional profile on Voices.com back in May. I was somewhat skeptical, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I'm so glad I did!

In the few months since, I've had an amazing, steady stream of VO work from some of the most fabulous and professional Clients anyone could ask for.

The diversity of projects is wonderful, and the feedback has been tremendous - such fun! It's opened up an incredible new sideline stream of revenue that I never would have thought possible, not in a million years.

There are so many VO sites out there, but none of them even come close to Voices.com. If you want to grow your Voiceover career, THIS is the site you connect to.

THANK YOU Voices.com!

Connect with Copy and Know What the Client Wants

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

July 13, 2015

Jonathan P. JonesVoices.com has been a pleasure to work with, and as someone just starting out here, it has been a great experience thus far!

After auditioning, Lisi Hentz reached out to me for a game by Somatone Interactive, where I had to voice a total of about 15-18 different characters (what a load!). This has to be one of the bigger titles I have worked on while working with Voices.com, and it most definitely will not be the last!

I view this as just the beginning of working here with Voices.com and I look forward to landing more roles and delivering more success stories as I continue using this service.

So far I am very satisfied here, while competitive, if you keep your chops up, and audition smart, you will book roles!

People deliver mixed stories about Voices.com, but I do believe that you really need to be on top of your game in order to push through those hurdles.

Connect with copy, know what the client wants, respect the writer, and then deliver copy with true emotional intent and you will book roles.

I Can't Wait to Expand My Client Base with Voices.com

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

July 8, 2015

Brandon PollockI'm already in love with Voices.com.

A week into being a member and landed my first gig that paid for my membership fees and then some!

I look forward to many more jobs thanks to the incredible services Voices.com provides!

Speaking of service, I have tried multiple Voice Over websites in the past, but the customer service that comes along with Voices.com separates them from the rest.

From Julianna who assisted me in getting my profile setup to the account managers who work extra hard to match their clients with the perfect voice.

The entire experience has been awesome so far and I can't wait to expand my client base with Voices.com!

Above all else, I love the fact that they make it so easy. I don't have to worry about sending invoices and chasing down payments.... They handle everything! Voices.com truly is the #1 Voice Over Marketplace.

I Can't Wait for Another Project that I Can Use the Site For!

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

July 7, 2015

ryan-summers-film-producer.jpgI just delivered a big project that I used Voices.com for and it went over extraordinarily well.

I was brought in last second to direct the opening titles for a festival in Melbourne and I needed a really specific voice -- one with gravity, age, and experience.

It was a voice I could hear in my head but hadn't found anywhere yet.

Signed up for Voices.com, filled out my requests, and quickly afterwards met a VO artist by the name of George Utley. He hit all the right notes in his test reading and cut through all of the other auditions immediately.

I didn't have much time until the delivery but was able to collaborate with George who nailed the lines within a few hours. The final result came out awesome -- and despite all of my hard work, the one thing that everyone fell in love with was George's line reading.

Thanks so much -- I can't wait for another project to come through that I can use the site for!

I Will Never Go Anywhere Else When I Need a VO

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

July 3, 2015

Emily Tunggala from Friendly HumanVoices.com is the only place to go when searching for a professional voiceover.

Our account manager Katie has done a great job for my team and me, managing small "easy" projects, and large difficult ones. She recently wrapped up a huge one for us where she managed 10 VO artists in 5 different languages.

I was so impressed with how she handled every situation that arose.

At times I wasn't an easy client (hate to admit that we had script changes half way through), and Katie didn't even blink! She handled it like a rockstar.

I will never go anywhere else when I need to VO.

I Couldn't Have Done This VO Job Without Voices.com

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

May 29, 2015

Sandra ParkerYou can imagine my excitement when I received a call from Tyler Schiefer regarding a recent audition that I had submitted.

The client really liked my submission and wanted to direct the recording session via phone patch or Skype.

That is when my frustration began.

I was 500 miles away from my studio.

I was due to fly back later that afternoon, arriving about 30 minutes before the scheduled call.

What if my plane was delayed? What if I had to wait for my luggage?

What if there was no taxi to pick me up?

Thirty minutes to spare!


 

Working in Front of Big-Time Agencies and Multi-Billion-Dollar Conglomerates

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

May 21, 2015

C Erwin Daniels, Mr. CHi, my name is C Erwin Daniels about a week ago I joined Voices.com and I'm happy to say that I just completed my first job.

I first heard favorable things about about Voices.com during a Bill DeWees webinar. I've been in broadcasting for over 40 years and found myself involuntarily retiring, but it seems as if God has other plans.

This is my first venture into the Voice Over industry, it's good to know that there's someone out there who can handle the business of getting auditions and getting my work heard by people that matter.


 

Thank You, Voices.com for Kick-starting My Career

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

May 4, 2015

Leonora Haig, British Voice ArtistI joined Voices.com a year ago when I'd just graduated from Drama School here in London, UK and, aside from Radio lessons whilst training, I was a complete newbie VO, very eager to work.

After nervously paying over my subscription fee I began auditioning for the many opportunities that came my way and the excitement of booking my first job was unparalleled: I was now a real Voice Over Artist!

Since last year I have earned well over $3000 with Voices.com, worked with some amazing, house-hold name clients (Unilever, Fisher Price, S2 Games to name a few) and have built up great working relationships with repeat clients.


 

I was Just Awarded My First Voices.com Job

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

April 24, 2015

Shaun Toole, voice actorI'm pleased to report that I have finished my first job that I obtained from Voices.com! The client is really happy about the outcome, and it looks like there is more work for me on this same project.

I spent many years in radio doing production on commercials and other projects, as well as being a morning air personality and DJ, reading news, and numerous other responsibilities that came with the territory. However, I'm new to the voice over world as an independent actor.

In the past several months, I have set up a web site, www.shauntoole.com, attended workshops presented by Edge Studio; worked with a voice acting coach to record a commercial demo; consulted with audio engineer and ninja George Whittam; set up a voice booth in a bedroom closet equipped with ATS Acoustic panels, double-layered sheet rock, and a high-quality Rode large diaphragm condenser microphone.

A couple of months ago, following all this preparation, I joined Voices.com. After numerous auditions and several "like" ratings by clients, I was awarded my first job doing three character voices for "Star Rangers Commercial Part One."


 

Voices.com Has Become a Regular Source of Work For Me

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

April 10, 2015

KevinCharles-Headshot_2014.jpgI want to say thank you to the staff at Voices.com for convincing me to come back and give the site another try. I had been a Premium member for several years and only picked up a couple of jobs during that time, so I finally dropped it.

When my full time job in radio went away last fall, I decided I wanted to devote my time to building a full time business doing VO work from home, so I came back.

I'm happy to say that I made the right choice and Voices.com has become a regular source of work for me. In fact, I have found myself being booked six times since mid-January.

I believe that the success I am enjoying is the result of a lot of prayer and hard work along with a dedication to improving my craft. I have also taken advantage of some great advice and resources provided by the Voices staff, to help fine tune my profile. That process is now filling my inbox with auditions that are much more tailored to my strengths.

I am now able to see how Voices.com fits into the big picture of my voiceover business, not as the sole source of my work, but as a regular contributor to the multiple streams of income that I am building.

Combined with clients I get from my agent and a variety of other sources, and I'm a pretty happy camper right now.

Voices.com Opens Doors of Opportunity in Mexico and Beyond

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

March 27, 2015

Antonio RaluyOver my 18-year-career as a voice-over talent in Mexico, I have never found so much professional help and so many job opportunities as I have in 6 months with Voices.com. Since day 1, my inbox has been filled with e-mails of new job opportunities, and every time I need assistance, all I have to do is ask for it, and in a few minutes, all my questions are answered.

Sergio Cordoba is awesome.

Thanks to Voices.com I´m expanding my client list, as well as my chances to grow in this business. Because the people that work here understand exactly what a voice-over artist needs, and expects, and how hard sometimes this job is, they have become a powerful ally I can trust.

I´m also a voice-over instructor, and having this experience with Voices.com has also enhanced my skills and the goals I want to reach so I can teach them to my students.

This is great, you are awesome!

Remaining Competitive in the Fast Paced Voice Over World

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

January 15, 2015

Garth Wynne-Jones, British voice talentI'm not the kind of guy who usually does testimonials or writes reviews but I have to say I really am loving the service that Voices.com provides.

My agent at TGMD recommended I buy some gear and set up a home studio to remain competitive in the fast paced Voice Over world.

Once I had set up my equipment to record at home I saw no reason not to sign up with one of the on-line sites to see what I could generate on my own.

I booked my first job at Voices.com after just a couple of weeks. I negotiated $350 which almost paid for a year's subscription! I received a deposit in escrow right away, then went straight to work voicing the project.

After a few days the client accepted my recording and released the funds. We then gave each other a positive feedback. Great experience!


 

No Two Days Are Ever the Same When You Work in Voiceovers

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

November 7, 2014

Ed Bretten voice artistI've been a member of the voices.com family since early 2012, and have also been fortunate enough to have worked on voiceovers pretty regularly over the last two or three years.

These have ranged from on-hold telephone prompts for a company in Australia, to the launch of a new software product in the USA, from wind turbine technology in the Middle East to a board game launch in Estonia!

The variety of types of voiceover and geographic locations are two of the things I absolutely love about this business.

In fact, over dinner with friends last night, I did find myself saying (although some may say it's a little bit cliche...) that no two days are ever the same when you work in voiceovers!


 

Keep Plugging Away

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

October 14, 2014

Christopher Chris PoirierI think the biggest demotivation for a voice talent is the ratio between auditions and booked gigs.

The sheer number of hours you put into getting that one project can seem overwhelming. But it's nothing new even to the most experienced of voice artists.

I've been at this voice over thing for about three years now and have found projects and revenue flow from every avenue I've worked at.

I joined Voices as a Premium member within the last couple months and began plugging away at auditions.

Just like every other new medium, when I began, I felt like it would be ages before I saw any turn around.

But you know? I didn't stop.

I kept plugging away and sure enough, as always, a job came in.


 

Reinventing My Wheel

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

September 24, 2014

Dana Fleming voice talentI have to thank Voices.com for the best week I've had doing voiceovers so far!

Now don't get me wrong, things didn't start out this way for me.

Having spent the past two decades working as a network television broadcaster and talk show host, and having done literally thousands of voiceovers in conjunction with each show I've ever hosted, I mistakenly assumed that I could easily cross over to the elusive world of voiceovers.

Boy did I get my comeuppance!

Unlike in television, where you project to a camera 20 or 30 feet away, and then after the show walk into a booth and do your voiceovers in basically the same style, I had to learn, with the help of three wonderful voice coaches, how to form an "intimate relationship" with the microphone, and do it in the privacy and seclusion of my own home studio.

I basically had to re-train my voice.
