Getting Started with Voice123

 

Image 1 (1)

When joining Voice123, you’ll create an online voiceover profile, where you’ll be able to add your profile picture and voice demos. A website address will be assigned to you, and this will be your main marketing tool to promote yourself online and get voiceover jobs.

Every talent starts with a Standard Subscription which is a way to help new voice-actors get started, increase their job opportunities, and get acquainted with both the website and the online industry.

As a Standard Subscriber, the only way you can submit an audition is if a client invites you directly; you won’t receive nearly as many invitations to audition as Premium Subscribers. Your profile still gets indexed by major search engines like Google and Bing, so clients may find your profile there as well.

In July 2007, Voice123 released a voice-casting system called SmartCast (more on that later). To audition for SmartCast projects, you must be a Premium Subscriber.

Voice123 Premium Members are automatically invited to audition for projects that match their profile via SmartCast. The better you match a project’s specifications, the sooner you’ll get invited. This eliminates the need to be ‘first to the microphone’ to ensure your audition gets listened to. Auditioning is stressful enough, it shouldn’t be a race too!

Does Voice123 work for everyone? No—but it’s the only website of its kind that has relationship-building technology built into it. Remember:

Voice123 is not a career. It is a business tool to get work. Current averages in surveys show 60% of auditioning voice talents book at least one job a month. Between 10% – 13% book at least five jobs a month.

Ultimately, your career is your responsibility. But we can certainly help you build it.

    Hi,

    Beside being a voiceover artist I also have a studio and coordinate multilingual voiceover production (using exclusively local talent). Am I correct in assuming that voices123 is geared towards freelancers and not studios using local talent? Would you recommend me buying the premium membership?

    Hi there, I am wondering about something similar. Is it possible to work on-line for the audition part, but be able to go to a local studio to do the actual work? And does the studio then invoice the client for the studio use? Most budgets seem too low to be able to cover paying the VO talent and the studio.

    You’re so interesting! I don’t think I have read through a single thing like that before. So good to find another person with original thoughts on this topic. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that’s needed on the web, someone with a bit of originality!
