Voices.com

One of the popular voice over websites that accepts talent around the globe. All you have to do is to record your voice. Either you sing, pray, read a poem or an article, your choice. You can speak other languages aside from English, you’ll never know if that language is what they are looking for. You may upload at least 3 voice recordings or more. Whether you want to have a background music or not, as long as it is pleasant to hear. Record your voice and submit to voices.com

One of the cons is you have to pay in order for you to apply for a certain company that you think your voice is compatible with. But if you will not pay, still your voice will be recognized because voices.com has a match thing, or the hiring company have listened to your voice and would want you to audition. If this happens, voices.com will contact you thru email or the hiring manager in the company might do so.

On my experience, the hiring manager contacted me thru e-mail but I have to decline since they want a 1 (one) month commitment. It was a conflict on my schedule because I just can’t give up my current job. But you see, though I am not a paying member still they heard my voice and offered me an opportunity.

If you want your voice to be heard, start recording and hit the submit button to upload your voice. Let your voice be the source of your income.

Oh, I hope, I can get a script in the book of mills and boons and harlequins. Don’t you know that they are hiring? I hope they will recognize my voice! =)

Some tips to record your voice:

1. Use iPhone or a trusted recording device that minimizes noise.
2. Download the app voice record pro. How to use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alx-u2aetXU

3. Record inside the closet or in any enclosed and quiet area.

So far, these guidelines didn’t fail me because I am getting invitations for an audition. Try it too, and let’s make our voices heard and work for us as well.

Happy recording everyone! =)
