Voices.com, the online marketplace for hiring voice actors, is announcing their new SurePay Escrow Service, a service that makes hiring voice actors a safe and intuitive experience for both the client employing a voice professional and the voice professional accepting the work.
Voices.com is home to over 15,000 voice actors from around the world, representing over 100 languages. These voice actors specialize in audio recordings for television, radio, animation, telephone systems, corporate videos, character voices for video games, audio books, movie trailer voiceovers, podcasts, announcing for live events and more.
Businesses can search for voice actors using the Voices.com search engine or by posting a voice-over job free of charge. Posting a job is a popular option for many people. When posting a job, clients can map out their project requirements to receive a range of voice samples and obtain quotes immediately, cataloging responses conveniently in their Voices.com account. As thousands of customers have already discovered, posting a job greatly streamlines the process of hiring a voice professional.
What makes using Voices.com such an easy activity? The company has developed a web 2.0 service which includes the Voices.com escrow service coined SurePay which enables both parties (the voice actor and their client) to negotiate terms and finalize agreements, make a deposit, get the job done and deliver the files, ensuring that the person hiring the voice actor is satisfied, releasing payment to the voice actor following the approval of their work.
David Ciccarelli, CEO says, "The implementation of the SurePay Escrow Service has further reinforced the fact that Voices.com is the only resource required when hiring voice professionals, making it easy to fulfill all aspects of the recruiting process in one convenient location online."
SurePay Escrow is being embraced by the Voices.com community as not only a tool that facilitates business relationships and transactions, but also as a means to document Feedback Ratings and Reviews from buyers and sellers who use the Voices.com web service, thus allowing users to view each other's feedback ratings before working together or solidifying a job offer. The giving and receiving of ratings and reviews based upon transactions completed with SurePay Escrow provides accountability and trust in the voice over marketplace exclusive to those who use Voices.com to complete their projects.
Voices.com provides an online marketplace, facilitating transactions between advertisers and voice actors offering a comprehensive suite of web-based services. Clients that have worked at Voices.com include NBC, ESPN, PBS, The History Channel, Reader's Digest, Comcast, Nortel Networks, Bell Canada, Microsoft, Cisco Systems, ING, Western Union, Ford, GM, Jaguar, the US Government and more.
