Voices.com in the news
- Internet gives voice to unseen actors
“Today, it’s almost too easy. Voice actors can be their own agent. Clients find them through personal Web sites or via talent-congregation sites Voices.com.”
– Steve Mollman, CNN
- The Do-It-Yourself Economy
“Rather than hiring local voice talent — for $250 to $500 per hour — we searched the Internet for high-quality voices that we could afford. We found several sites offering various forms of narration or voice-overs. We selected www.voices.com. In less than one minute, we created an account, posted our requirements and solicited bids. Within five minutes, we had 10 to 15 ‘applicants’ ” — charging 10 percent of what Greer would have paid live talent.”
– Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times
- Google’s New Radio Ads Product
“Voices.com has been helping to match advertisers with voice talent and ad production for the last couple of years.”
– Michael Arrington, TechCrunch
- Mashable on Voices.com’s Graphic Design
“Voices is larger, but tighter. More technically productive, but simpler to use. It’s evolved, really. It’s hard to make something of Voices’ proportions into a truly elegant thing, but Voices may well have done just that.”
– Paul Glazowski, Mashable
