Did you know that you can sell products in the Voices.com Store as well as in your own store located within your Profile?
Added with the relaunching of the site in November of 2008, the Voices.com Store makes it easier than ever before to be hired based upon work you've already done and gives you the power to control pricing, write your own ad copy and product descriptions as well as provide audio snippets to serve as product samples.
For more information about this innovation and how the entire process works, you can check out this article written for our membership about the Voices.com Store in October 2008.
Moving right along...
What Are Products?
A product is any kind of voice over that you count among your services, for example, :60 radio commercials, or voice mail greetings, movie trailer voice overs, and so on.
When you create a product it will show up immediately in the Recently Added list.
Products are presented individually to the buyers as ready-to-order and are purchasable immediately online at your Voices.com store, facilitated by SurePay, the voice over industry's trusted escrow service.
What Do You Need To Do To Create a Product?
When Creating Products, Be Sure to Include the Following:
à¹ Product Title:
A 1-line field for the title or name of the product.
à¹ Product Tags:
Select keywords (adjectives) used to describe the product.
à¹ Product Language:
The language that the recording will be done in.
à¹ Product Category:
Radio, television, business and so on.
à¹ Product Demo:
A sample MP3 file used to help demonstrate what will be delivered following purchase.
à¹ Product Description:
A large text area used to describe the product, service description, deliverables and other technical or relevant information.
à¹ Product Price:

You can view a good example of a product description in your account while creating your products if you'd like some guidance.
What's Been Working So Far?
From what we've observed:
à¹ Products listed in the $100 - $500 range do best
à¹ Well detailed products are more useful and attractive to prospective customers
à¹ Short voice samples that accurately match product descriptions are necessary
