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!

Prime Marketing Tool

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.

Voices.com is a Like a Fitness Program for My Craft

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!

5 Years Later, Voices.com Better Than Ever

Carly Diamond.small.jpg"My childhood dream was to become a radio DJ. When I got my first radio job in high school I was thrilled. By 2010 I had established a successful radio career - I loved being live on air every morning! However, it didn't take long for me to realize I wanted to do more.

I set up a home studio and began auditioning for all types of voice-over work at Voices.com. I loved getting jobs, getting feedback, and getting paid.

After my children were born I took some time off from radio and my voice-over work got put on hold as well. Time flew by and when I came back to Voices.com it had been a five-year hiatus. I wondered what I had missed. Did I still have the talent? Would the website be completely different? And where did I put my microphones?!

The first time I logged on to Voices.com again, all my demos, feedback, bio, and even my emails to and from clients were still there from five years ago. It was like I never left! Everything is still so easy to use and the updates to the site are great. It's better than ever. I started auditioning right away and I got two jobs the very first day.

Voices.com is the perfect platform for anyone looking to make a career out of Voice Acting. They offer the tools, opportunity, and support to be successful. Now I work from home doing what I love and I am still part of an amazing team of professionals."

Jonathan Broncks.small.jpgI was a junior in high school when the performance bug first bit me. My friends were in West Side Story, and it looked like they were having so much fun up on the stage! The following year, I joined stage crew to learn more about the inner workings of theatre.

I was cast in my first play in my freshman year of college playing "The Gentleman Caller" in Arthur Miller's Glass Menagerie. From there I was off and running, averaging one major and one one-act play each semester, in addition to working stage crew and hosting programs on the college radio station. As much as I love the stage, I am even happier behind the mic, so voice-over was a natural progression!

Teaming up with Voices.com was a smart move for me. The volume and variety of auditions that come to me fill my days with work and help enhance my creativity.

One of my favorite aspects of Voices.com is the customer service. For example, when I was new to the site, I had lots of questions that ranged from setting up my profile and increasing my VoiceMatch score to how to accept an agreement after getting my first gig.

Their customer service is outstanding and makes me feel like a valued member! Emails are responded to promptly, and I love being able to call and talk to an Account Manager who takes the time to really understand the situation and quickly come up with a solution for me.

If you are looking for a company that wants to partner in your success, join Voices.com.

AndiaWinslowHeadshotPark.cropped.jpgAs a pro athlete and filmmaker, I've always been inspired by movement, from movement of the human body to movement of images; Kinetic storytelling is what motivates me. Of late, though, I've come to really understand and harness the power of voice.

The tendency to talk to and answer myself out loud, and in character, led to the most useful birthday gift I've received in years - voice-over lessons! Intrigued by the craft, and committed to expanding my range, I listened to online demos, watched TV only to focus on the audio of commercials, and struck up conversations with strangers on the subway to hear accents and tone.

After my self-directed research, I finally decided to invest in a professional voice-over career by enrolling in a Premium membership with Voices.com. It just so happened that my decision fell on Black Friday. David Gravelle, an employee in the Talent department at Voices.com, helped me figure out my options and surprised me with a hefty discount!

The next day, I submitted my very first audition and booked it hours later! Voices.com is so easy to navigate and I can't wait to dive into the resources for working artists. It only took one day to surpass my experiences with similar industry platforms. Thank you!
