Have you taken a stroll down the Recently Hired list at Voices.com?
Do you ever review feedback ratings that you receive or view those that are given to your peers?
If you've gone that far, you might also be wondering what the talent thought of working with their client... and you can view that information if the voice talent took the time to rate and review in return!
Discover how to give clients feedback ratings and reviews at Voices.com and also learn just how important it is that you reciprocate.
Most voice over professionals want (if not need!) to receive feedback on the work that they have done.
Usually it's because you want to know that the work was well received, made the client happy and gain material for a ready-made testimonial.
While clients may not be as forward with asking for feedback, know that it is welcomed and helps to give other people information about how your experience was working with them!
When you are awarded a project and payment is released for work you completed at Voices.com, your clients can give you a feedback rating and also write a brief review that details their professional experience working with you.
Once a client has given a rating and review, voice talent are notified and invited to give their clients a feedback rating and review to come full circle.
Although there are many talent who reciprocate and give their clients feedback ratings and commentary, I've come across a number of one-sided reviews where clients who have taken the time to share their experiences did not have the favour returned by the voice over professionals who so desperately (in some cases) seek out affirmation of their work and recognition of a job well done.
Responding to leave a feedback rating and review for your clients only takes a minute and it's truly the least you can do to help them build their brand reputation here at Voices.com.
Some people who use the site rely upon feedback ratings and reviews to help them gauge opportunities and establish trust.
Feedback of this nature can only be left or received once payment for the voice over has been released.
To leave feedback for someone you've worked with via the SurePay Escrow service at Voices.com, please complete the following steps:
1. Login to your Voices.com account
2. From the left side menu under Profile click on Feedback
3. You will be presented with a screen that shows you ALL feedback - feedback to be left and feedback left for you.
4. Any green Leave Feedback buttons present mean you still need to leave Feedback for that person. Click and leave a Star Rating and text comment and submit.
If you are unsure of whether or not you have any outstanding feedback to give clients you've worked with, be sure to follow the instructions above and find out. If there are opportunities to leave a rating and review, go for it!
I'd like to acknowledge those who have left feedback ratings and reviews for their clients and let you know how grateful we are for your participation in this important aspect of the Voices.com service.
