Frequently Asked Questions
There are even more solutions added to the Knowledge Database and Frequently Asked Questions. In the Help section, located at the top of every page, you'll also find new PDF documents including comprehensive overviews of SAG, AFTRA, ACTRA and EQUITY.
Sitemaps have been around since the advent of the Web and used primarily as a way to list all the pages on a particular website.
Nowadays, sitemaps have other purposes such as organizing web content by topic, showing the search engines which pages you have created and developing a linking structure that emphasizes specific areas of your website over others.
Client Experience Report
This 12 page report focuses specifically on how clients (buyers) use Voices.com to search for, audition and hire voice over talent (sellers) as well as the most important factors taken into account during the hiring process. The research included 1372 responses and is available online or download as a PDF.
