Woot!How can you maximize your experience, visibility, and promotional opportunities at Voices.com?

There are 3 ways you can gain publicity through our site that you may not have known about. We'll talk about them in detail here, including what they are, why they're important, and how you can get your name in lights.

Want to know more? Read on!

Accountability and Recognition

I'm always thrilled to hear when our talent book via Voices.com and am of course equally pleased to hear from clients who have used our service and hired someone from the site.

Did you know that there are a number of ways that you can be acknowledged and rewarded for booking work at or using Voices.com?

I've compiled the top three ways for you here with instructions on how to take part:

1. Receiving Public Feedback
2. Getting on the Recently Hired List
3. Submitting a Success Story

1. Public Feedback

When you complete a job at Voices.com using our SurePay escrow service, you receive both a listing on the Recently Hired list on the Voices.com home page and invaluable feedback, complete with a star rating from your client and a written review.

Each step of your business transaction is documented and validated through our website as we can easily track all jobs that are completed via our SurePay escrow service.

Using SurePay is the only way you can receive an official feedback rating at Voices.com.

Why this feedback is so important to have:

Based upon hundreds of conversations and email exchanges with clients using our service over the years, we've discovered that the overwhelming majority want to know which talent have worked through the site, and the only way for talent to gain that recognition is to complete work via SurePay.

Feedback ratings are now shown in the search results.

In a future update to Voices.com, the option to filter search results and auditions by Feedback will be available to clients hiring talent, as per their request. This functionality will display talent responding to the job posting who have received feedback via SurePay in the past.

Getting on the Recently Hired List

Any voice talent who is awarded a job at Voices.com is acknowledged on this list.

If you choose to do business through Voices.com, you open the door to receive publicly displayed feedback from your client, such as the desirable feedback mentioned above.

Unfortunately, when transactions are completed outside of SurePay, even if the job was posted at Voices.com, we cannot officially give you credit in terms of Feedback (star rating and written review) for booking a job that we have no record of from start to finish.

Didn't go through SurePay but still desire recognition for your work?

Should you be in this situation, I have three tips that will help bring closure to the posted job and also get you some recognition for your work:

a) Report the work to Voices.com so that we can mark the job as completed
b) Ask your client for a testimonial for posting to your Voices.com profile
c) Submit a success story

Submitting a Success Story

I always love to hear about your experiences at Voices.com as do other members of our team. By sharing your good news with us, we are able to celebrate what you've achieved and also shout it from the rooftops!

If you have completed a project at Voices.com or have found success that was a result of a contact made at Voices.com, I recommend that you submit a "success story" detailing your experience to get publicity on the Buzz Blog at Voices.com, complete with a link to your profile.

Check out the blog here and read some entries submitted by your peers and clients of Voices.com, including interesting case studies from clients who reveal who they hired and why:

We'd love to recognize you for your work though which is why I've made some suggestions above that will help us to do that for you.

Best wishes,

Stephanie

        Greetings! After trying to break into audio books for about 20 years (!), I finally got my first audio book job through Voices.com!!! It's called Amber Beach, and is most likely now available for download through Harper Audio (Harper Collins publishers). From that first job, I've been given a second book, Midnight in Ruby Bayou, and a third, Jade Island, all by Elizabeth Lowell. I absolutely love the process that these long-format jobs (REALLY long format!) offer, and I have had to create Russian, Australian and Chinese accents for characters in the books, which I never thought I could do. It has pushed my limits, but it has also pushed all of my "why I love voiceover" buttons. I may be off on a whole new career! Thanks, Voices.com, for providing that wonderful opportunity!!!
