Voices.com states that they are the world’s “number one voice-over marketplace” where clients can sign up to find the people they need to do their professional voice over work and members can get paid part time.
How Does It Work?
Most people are exposed to voice over work every day of their lives, when they hear a commercial on the radio, see a movie trailer on TV, or go to a new website and watch a short introductory video.
The goal of Voices.com is to provide those very same voice over work opportunities to anyone who is interested in taking advantage of this at home earning possibility. Typical types of voice over recordings include Audiobooks, Documentaries, Movie Trailers, Telephone, Business, Educational, Podcasting, Television, Radio, Videogames, and more
The website says that have a profile on their network goes a long way toward helping break into this industry and find this kind of work, since they partner with advertising agencies and Fortune 500 companies that do work all over the world.
For clients, Voices.com says that they will provide them with all the tools they need for the auditioning and hiring of their talent, as well as provide them with a secure way to pay their talent.
Members who would like to sign up for a free membership to qualify for job postings on Voices.com are welcome to do so. In fact, they encourage all their members to sign up for a free membership to begin with, and then move to a Premium membership later on. It does not appear that they offer publicly published information on the cost of their Premium membership.
They do provide their clients with a publicly published Rate Sheet that gives guidelines for what to pay for the voice over work they are ordering, with an understanding that all rates for voice-over recordings for broadcast usage are determined by the length of the recording, the medium in which it will be broadcast and the size of the market in which it will appear.
Unfortunately this website does not appear to publish any public information about refunds at this time, whether they are refunds of membership fees or refunds of voice over service fees if a company is unhappy with what they have received for any reason. Clients or members that feel circumstances have occurred which would justify a refund of any fees they’ve paid should contact their Customer Service team as soon as possible to what solutions can be offered to you.

This company seems to have very mixed reviews and it’s difficult to tell what a new prospective customer should be thinking about their services. First, there is a lot of discrepancy online about the cost of this service. Some people claim that this website does not actually offer a free membership, but rather a free trial and then a minimum $10.00 a month membership fee.
If that’s the case, this information isn’t detailed on their website and customers should take that as evidence of an unethical business model.
If this company does offer a free membership to their customers the way they claim they do, there is still a serious problem with their methods. While they brag to their clients that they have hundreds of thousands of members willing to do voice over work, it is unclear who this actually benefits. It certainly doesn’t benefit the members, who will be a single fish in a gigantic ocean of talent all competing for the same opportunities, and it doesn’t really benefit their clients either. No company wants to go through hundreds of thousands of job applicants – really they would be happy with ten good, qualified prospects.
To help members have more access to success than others, they offer their Premium membership, which is not detailed on their website to the public, but is described by customers as costing more than $2,000 per year to maintain. If you are unable to pay these fees, it doesn’t seem that there are many other ways to separate yourself from the pack.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Voice over work is starting to become a popular part time, home based method of earning money, so people who are not satisfied with the services provided by Voices.com should be able to find other companies offering similar services.
