The Voice Realm, one of the world’s leading voice over casting websites has finished on top of a survey completed by over 150 voice actors this week. The casting site beat out competitors in regards to customer service, ease of use and the amount of voice over jobs being cast.
Robert James, The Voice Realm’s marketing manager was ecstatic about the results and proof that the site is winning the trust of professional voice actors, many who had recently become disheartened with websites that were charging in excess of $400 and then having voice talent bid against one another for work.
“Our staff have worked so hard over the past few years, and this is the ultimate payoff. We get so many emails from voice talent telling us they are moving all their voice over work to our site, due to fast payments, fair voice over rates, and a great user experience.”
Some of the survey results included the following:
Which casting site brings you the most work?
|1||The Voice Realm||22.68%|
Which website is the most user friendly for the voice actor?
|1||The Voice Realm||42.34%|
Which casting website have you had the best customer service with?
|1||The Voice Realm||45.95%|
The results prove that The Voice Realm continues to remain one of the world’s most prestigious casting websites providing exceptional customer service. More than 84% of respondents indicated that they would remain with the site for the foreseeable future.
One of the negative results of the survey was that many voice actors fear that casting websites that allow voice talent to bid against each other for jobs is slowly eroding rates. The preference being given to a set rate card, something The Voice Realm has implemented since its launch in 2011.
Mr. James continued to explain that the site works closely with international advertising agencies and production companies to supply voice talent for everything from scratch tracks to international television campaigns.
“We have lead the field with many forward thinking ways of bringing new clients to our actors, which we see others now trying to replicate. The voice actors are not stupid and see straight through other sites money hungry ways of upping the annual subscription fee and allowing anyone to join and start auditioning and undercutting established talent.”
Talent like Maria Pendolino have nothing but praise for the connections she has made via the casting service. “Working with The Voice Realm over the last year has brought me some job opportunities that I don’t think I would have found on my own. I’ve had the chance to connect with clients all over the world and have even booked some jobs that I didn’t audition for! Having my profile on The Voice Realm gives ad agencies and other voice seekers the opportunity to listen to demos and choose a talent like me without even holding a casting. As a freelance voice talent, nothing is better than getting an e-mail saying that you’ve been booked for a job that you didn’t even know existed! My voice has been featured in web explainer videos, corporate narrations and radio commercials. My favorite job that I have booked so far is as the announcer for The New York Public Library’s weekly podcast series which is available on iTunes. I have the privilege of working with one of the largest and most respected institutions in New York City (my home!) and on a weekly basis get to introduce some of our generation’s greatest writers, actors and directors to the NYPL’s international podcast audience. All because of The Voice Realm.”
The Voice Realm is headquartered in New York City, and has staff located around the globe offering customer support right around the clock.
