Woman in line with mannequinsWant to get noticed at Voices.com but don't know where to start?

Have a lot of talent but not a lot of attention?

If you're trying to get more traffic to your profile at our marketplace, you'll want to read the tips in this article.

Although they may seem obvious, you'd be amazed by how instrumental these three things can be when getting your voice heard.

Profile Completeness, Demos and Tags

There is more than one way to crack an egg. Fortunately, unlike cracking an egg, getting noticed at Voices.com doesn't have to create a mess nor does it cost you anything other than some time and creativity.

3 things you can do to increase your visibility and relevancy on the site are:

1. Completing your profile
2. Having as many short demos as possible for different applications of voice over
3. Tagging your demos and describing them appropriately

The Voices.com search engine not only searches the content of your profile (languages, skills, ages, etc.) but it also reads the tags on your demos and demo descriptions. If you put a lot of effort in the presentation and optimization of your demos, you will show up in more searches. The more demos and diverse descriptions you have, the greater your opportunities of being found for a variety of queries.

Has This Worked For You?

If you've taken the above into account and made your Voices.com profile sparkle, let me know! Has spiffing your profile up made it easier for you to book work?

Best wishes,

Stephanie

    I learned another trick. Do a search on a category that you are right for - if your name doesn't appear in the search, go back to your profile page and adjust your descriptions and tags and maybe add a demo to be sure you're in the mix. By being more aware of the exact keywords that clients are using, I can be sure they see me when they do a search! I adjusted my language to include "educational" as well as "training" and got more hits.

      They say be conversational and even toned, i'm knocking myself crazy trying to do that. I should have researched doing this before committing to a years membership.I think my voice is good enough for this kind of work, major discouraged at this time. Not going to run, but maybe know what direction to run to.
