Email Bag: 2010 Voice Over Success Story

Yes, that is right! It is just two weeks into 2010, and already I have received wonderful emails from voice over talent expressing success with Voice123. As Voice123 has noticed a return to busier days, we want to share one with you. The voice talent below, wrote me specifically expressing that he wanted to share his story to explain why he stays with Voice123, and requested I do not share his name. If he reads this, I thank him for his generosity.

Please see below:

Hola! Hope your 2010 is starting out well. Wanted to share this with you and feel free to pass it on to Alex and anyone else. I wanted to share yet another example of why - after several years and memberships elsewhere - I belong ONLY to Voice123 now.

This past week has been mind boggling. It started out with a phone call from a client I originally landed through V123 about 3 years ago. I did a few small things for him and then didn't hear anything from him again 'til last week. It'd been over 2 years since I'd done work for him. He wanted an updated message-on-hold. Not a big job, but nice to get.

Then got contacted by ANOTHER former V123 client. They originally found me via your site about 3 years ago and I did some industrials for them and nothing since. They had another project that I banged out for them last week. $350. Then they wrote back and asked for a quote on a fairly huge 2.5 hour narration. I quoted $3000 and they said go for it.

THEN, got hired by a guy Friday on your site that I think was using the site for the first time ever... 25 minute phone patch session for a 4 minute read. $500.

AND... got a direct invite from another V123 seeker wanting me to do a live in-studio session here in (my home state) this week or next. Not sure but I THINK it's a $350 job.

I can deal with this! Yes, there are peaks and valleys and I can only WISH every week was like this, but I sure never found this type of success on any of the other online sites.

I'm so pleased with Voice123 now. I know I was an outspoken critic a while back, but no more. I'm one of your biggest fans. Thanks for helping me earn a nice living and helping me to continue to grow my business.
