The Voices.com Store is an exciting feature that gives members of Voices.com the opportunity to be hired straight off product samples instead of cutting custom demos.
I had the opportunity to learn more about how voice talent are using their stores and thought you'd be interested in what's going on!
Hear about some experiences had by voice talent who have sold products in their Voices.com Stores and discover how easy it is to create and list your own products.
Yesterday I took a few minutes to follow up with some voice talent who had sold products in the Voices.com Store and asked them about their experiences.
Melanie Wood, James Herron and Melanie Haynes were quick to respond and shared their experiences with clients and the process.
Selling my product on Voices.com was very quick and easy. I received an email stating that my product had been sold (IVR & on hold message). When I went to my page the script was there waiting for me. Within a few hours the client had their completed product and the funds were released to me! :)
The Client was very happy and left great feedback!
Smith Pro Rodeos contracted me through the Voices.com Store. They were looking for a "Sam Elliott" sounding Voice Over for a special "opening presentation: for a rodeo event to viewed on the 'jumbo-tron". Smith Pro Rodeos, is the preeminent professional rodeo producer and in reviewing my "Sam Elliott" demo in the store of Voices.com I was selected for the project.
I voiced the exciting opening event film presentation for the Super Bowl of rodeos The Gold Buckle Award. The client was very cordial and professional and sincerely believe the ease of the Voices.com one stop shopping feature for this client (who does not have a regular need for VO talent) made it a particularly easy business experience.
Being hired and paid via SurePay from my Store on voices.com is one of the easiest and most streamlined ways to do business! It saves both the client and talent a great deal of time.
