Whenever we make changes to the site, we discuss them here on VOX Daily as well as via regular newsletters to our members.
This change in particular simplifies the process for closing the deal on a voice over job!
You will no longer have to upload a Work Agreement when negotiating with clients at Voices.com.
At first glance you might wonder how removing one step could have such a significant impact, but believe you me, this slight change will make a world of difference.
Read this post to learn more and to see how seamless the process has become!
What you see above is the page you land on when you have submitted your audition to a client at Voices.com. This confirms that the client received your audition and that it is in their account for review. At this point, you are poised to receive an offer from a client at Voices.com.
Just like it sounds, you're finalizing the terms of your business agreement! Make sure that you input your fee and are satisfied with the amount. You'll see your fee, the SurePay fee, and the fee as the client sees it. Clients are fully aware that the total presented to them includes both your professional fee and also the SurePay escrow fee. As mentioned in a recent interview and in various surveys and case studies, clients prefer to complete their projects via Voices.com by taking advantage of our SurePay service which protects both you and your client.
This page is shown to you when you have completed the step to finalize terms.
When your client accepts your payment terms, the next step is for the client to make their deposit via Voices.com. Once they have made their deposit you'll be prompted to upload the files.
When you upload your files the client is notified by email and directed to listen to them. Once they have listened and are happy with what they hear, the next step is to approve the files.
When the files are approved, Voices.com is granted permission to release the funds to the you, the voice talent. Payments are made bi-monthly on the 1st and 15th of each month (should the 1st or 15th fall on a weekend or holiday, your payment will be sent on the following business day). Within your Voices.com account, be sure to specify how you would like to be paid. Voices.com pays you on behalf of your client via PayPal or Check.
Whenever we make changes such as this, it is with your best interest at heart. I hope you find this to be an improvement that makes using Voices.com even easier than before :)
