Man and woman standing back-to-back with thumbs upHow do you identify positive feedback regarding auditions you submit?

At Voices.com there are a number of ways you can measure feedback from clients using the site to hire talent but we'd love to hear your thoughts on what this kind of feedback means to you.

Share your thoughts now by commenting on today's Vox Daily!

Positive Feedback

Usually when we talk about feedback, we mean the kind that a talent and client can give to each other after they have completed a transaction at Voices.com. This consists of a star rating and written review of how their experience working together went.

There are other forms of feedback too such as our newly added check marks and thumbs up icons.

The green check marks mean that your audition has been reviewed and the thumbs up indicate that a client "liked" your audition. If you've received a thumbs up, this as a great vote of confidence with the very real possibility that you have been shortlisted or may be hired to record the job.

If you've received this kind of feedback, you ought to be pleased!

How Do You Read Clients?

What sort of things do you look for in terms of feedback? How do those things help you as a voice over artist?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Stephanie

    All along, those orange stars have been encouragement and motivator. Own-studio performers forgo applause (or catcalls!) as well as the antennae of a producer, so all feedback is valued.
    And that includes the (very rare) technical feedback that let's us know how our jobs sound on the big-time rigs.
    Love your new idea of a thumbs up to auditions, because when we don't hear back, the silence is truly deafening!

      I really like the thumbs up signs! It's a very nice feature. Even when you KNOW you've done well, it's important to get that outside feedback. Definitely a good thing! I also like the checks to show auditions been reviewed. Amazing how many times they AREN'T listened to, though. That's frustrating.

        I love the new icons. I find them very helpful as a tool in how I approach bids and auditions. While I know that some decisions just flat-out come down to liking the way one voice sounds over another, if I do get a thumbs-up, but don't book the job, I take a look at things like my quote (could I have bid a tiny bit lower?) or where I fell in the audition order. There is a psychological effect of being first or last in an audition order (depending on the patience of the person doing the casting). I also look at those jobs that are old and have no check mark at all. Often I came in late (after #50) on those jobs and can only assume they were already cast (but I don't delete them unless they actually show as "completed.")

          I do like the new icons. It let's us know which seekers are taking the time to listen to the auditions and which are not. Thee are a few that I hae auditioned for several times and no matter how quick or slow I get my audition in, it does not get listened to. So, I stopped doing auditions for that seeker and send my time on others. The thumbs up is also a nice feature, it allows me to go back and listen to that audition and makes notes about delivery, pacing and other things.

                Love the icons - even if I' m not booked I still feel 'listened' to! Of course it still doesn't beat that email in your inbox saying 'deposit received'!!
