Do you love to tell people about your voice over work? I'm giving you the opportunity to tell the world!
We've got some hot international press opportunities coming up, which is great in itself, but what is even more fabulous is that we have also been asked to collect and share success stories from members of Voices.com, like you, and details about your experiences using the site.
Do you have a story to share?
Word on the street is that Voices.com is the place to go to get professional voices recorded for just about everything under the sun.
Our PR people are working on a unique angle and are almost ready to roll... all that's missing is your story!
I'm asking you today to share your biggest win, your most exciting moment, or anything else you'd like to tell me that has to do with how you've found success at Voices.com.
What Type Of Story Can You Send?
I'm looking for any type of story that shows how Voices.com has helped you, but here are a few ideas to get you thinking...
Have You Used Your Membership:
à¹ With great success?
à¹ To solve a problem?
à¹ In an interesting situation?
à¹ In a quirky or unusual way?
... or do you have any other kind of story that we might find interesting?
What To Include In Your Story:
à¹ Your name and where you're from
à¹ A bit of background about why you were using the service
à¹ How you used the service
à¹ What the outcome was
à¹ What would have happened if you hadn't been a member of Voices.com
à¹ Why you would recommend Voices.com to other people
How To Make Your Story Stand Out:
à¹ Be funny
à¹ Show your personality
à¹ Record in your studio or other interesting environment
à¹ Consider music, sound effects and other production elements
We're going to give you gift certificates to spend on anything you wish from Sweetwater Sound if you win this contest. First place will receive a $500 Sweetwater Sound gift certificate, second place receives $300, and third place will receive a $200 gift certificate.
Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
1. Record A Video or Web Cam Clip
Remember to mention your name and how you used Voices.com in the video. Then upload the video to YouTube and send us the link -- or send it to us by email email@example.com, or using YouSendIt.com (which is a great way of sending large files).
2. Record An Audio Message
Just as before, make sure that you mention your name and how you used Voices.com in your audio recording. To submit, simply email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll start publishing the best responses on our buzz blog.
Contest ends Friday June 26, 2009 at 11:59 PM and we'll announce the winners Friday July 3, 2009. Looking forward to being wowed!
Best of luck to you all,
