voice123_vs_voices-com_job_opportunity_comparison_250.gifEver wondered what the difference really is between Voices.com and voice123 on jobs?

If it all comes down to jobs for you, this article is must-read. It answers the age old question.

Discover the truth here at VOX Daily.

Some people say it appears that voice123 has more jobs posted at their website.

Why is that?

The reason why it appears that voice123 is yielding more job opportunities is because Voices.com declines approving numerous jobs that do not meet our Job Posting Guidelines.

It comes as no surprise to us to see the same jobs we turn away posted at voice123 which many of you have noted are of a lesser quality.

Clients whose jobs are not approved at Voices.com are encouraged to contact talent directly and request price quotes in that manner. We stick by our guidelines and respect your need for professional opportunities being posted through our service via the auditioning process.

If we were to approve all of the jobs that we receive, I could say in all confidence that those opportunities would exceed what voice123 is posting at their website.

However, the overall quality of those opportunities would plummet.

I'm certain that more jobs with some at lower if not ridiculous budgets (or lack thereof) would not be welcomed with open arms after all of the hard work we've done to make sure that only the best opportunities are presented to you!

Some interesting news to share:

A fact you may not have heard (it's been recently updated), is that for every one job (1) posted at Voices.com, another fifteen (15) voice talents are contacted directly by different clients for direct job offers through Voices.com via the search engine and the Featured Voice Talent Directory as well as the Movers & Shakers list.

That's quite the ratio!

The rub lies in getting more of those really great jobs.

It is something that we work at every day and the results are coming in steadily. Marketing plays a role but in the end, it all comes down to relationships and nurturing each customer in order to sow seeds for opportunities that will last bringing more work and better work opportunities over time.

Many a seed has been sown and we're looking forward to seeing the results of our continued efforts. It's an exciting time.

Great things are happening for us, and as they say, overnight successes are years in the making. We've been at this now (operating a voice over marketplace) for 3 solid, wonderful years, so there are a lot of irons in the fire, if you will :)

Clients use Voices.com because they trust us and they trust that you will get the job done right, on time and within their budget.

    I just wanted to chime in and say I thought voice123 was a little shady asking for $195 upfront for a basic membership.

    Sure, you can have a free trial, but, like the free trial here on Voices.com, you can't really get a feel for how the audition process works until you pay for membership.

    I have to honestly say, I joined here first, even though it appeared in my inbox to have less audition opportunities, because I could pay $19.95 a month and see if the service and I clicked.

    I am SO glad I did, because the payment options turned out to be just one of the many benefits of starting here as opposed to voice123.com.

    And on a more personal note, I just like the customer service here at Voices.com a whole lot more than voice123.com. I feel like the people here encourage our continued success and that's a nice feeling.

    Blessings,

    Elisa

      I'm with you, Elisa. I was once a member of Voice123 and was frustrated with the immense number of audition opportunities that came in - virtually all of low quality.

      One job here, booked within my first couple weeks of membership, paid for all of my Voices.com expenses.

      And, hey, I'd pay 100 bucks a year just to listen to VoxTalk!
