Do clients using Voices.com want to hear custom demos?
How many auditions on average are reviewed?
What's the most important factor when picking a voice talent to record?
Find out the answers to these questions and more in the most recent Voices.com Client Survey published by our CEO David Ciccarelli and Product Manager Laurynda Pasma.
At Voices.com, people can hire voice talent by posting a job, searching by keyword or browsing the directory by category. In our survey, we asked clients which approach they take when hiring voice talent at Voices.com.
Take a look and see how people hiring talent go about doing what they do!
A question often asked by voice talent is how many auditions do clients receive for any given job posting?
NUMBER OF AUDITIONS REVIEWED
A similar question is how many auditions do clients actually listen to. The encouraging news is that Â¾ of clients are listening to over 50 demos. Clients who are listening to 1-25 demos are posting private jobs where only a limited number of people were invited to respond.
As you can imagine, your voice-over demo is the single most important factor to clients hiring voice talent at Voices.com. This is followed closely by a combination of the demo and quote.
CUSTOM DEMOS VS. GENERIC DEMOS
The debate continues. If given a script, the majority of clients prefer custom auditions, however, it would appear that this isn't a make-it-or-break it factor.
SHORT LISTING BY ADDING TO FAVORITES
A popular feature among clients, we are finding that they are using their Favorites as a means to shortlist the auditions, narrowing it down even further to a few top picks before to making a final casting selection.
SUREPAY ESCROW SERVICE AWARENESS
More than ever before, clients are hiring voice talent using Voices.com's SurePay escrow service and online work system to complete their projects online.
The last several months have proven exceptional, validating the decision to redesign Voices.com from the ground up. Read between the lines and you'll recognize that a great demo, a completed profile and being active on Voices.com through auditions are the keys to winning more jobs.
