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.
