Although the high profile commercial world seems swarmed with celebrities, the bulk of the work is everything else and voiced by you!

Greetings,

While its true that celebrities are being asked to record for several high-profile companies, the vast majority of voice-over work is performed by voice talents who work from professional-grade recording studios.

Although they aren't paid millions of dollars like their celebrity counterparts, their voice-overs are often more effective, believable, and relatable.

The most successful voice actors secure business because of their individual performance styles, voice types, and work ethic. Companies who rely on celebrities to sell their product based upon the perception of a celebrity are setting the stage to potentially miss the mark and the sale because the products appeal rests with the viewers predetermined opinion of the celebrity and their impression of them both on-camera and off.

Professional voice actors and voice talent find work by promoting themselves online at Voices.com, the original voice-over marketplace. Talents each have their own web page, can upload samples of their voice, post their resume, and audition for voice-over work on a daily basis. This work includes broadcast commercials, voice acting for video games, corporate narration, telephony, and audio book narration.

Business clients post their jobs and receive replies from talents online within minutes of posting their job requirements. These pros are fast, specialized, and are definitely more economical to work with!

If you've been told that you have a great voice (or if you need one that'll get the job done), click the logo to get to our home page.

Looking forward to working with you.

To your success!

Stephanie
