This is really going to stir things up!


Greetings,
Last week, I alluded to the fact that something exciting was going to happen, and now that the long weekend has passed, it’s time to start spreading the word.
InteractiveVoices is changing our name. We’re going to be Voices.com!
In the spirit of this future change, let’s take a look at our past:
Established in 2004 as a voice-over marketplace (InteractiveVoices.com), our roots run deep in the audio recording business, originally founded as a recording and production studio in the year 2000. A combination of industry expertise, marketing, and education has nurtured and secured the foundation of Voices.com.I thought I’d share our mission statement with you as noted on the Voices.com website.

As the largest database of voices online, Voices.com sets out to achieve the following:
1. Make it easy to find voices regardless of language, location, and voice type.
2. Give everyone who uses their voice professionally the ability to be found and heard online.
3. Create a living database of every voice type and language in the world.
4. Be the definitive news source for reporters, journalists and bloggers.
5. Provide talent career guidance and the tools to conduct business online.

You will all be pleased to know that many aspects of the current service you receive will remain the same, including our management team, mailing address, and toll-free telephone number. We will soon have a different name, and to put it bluntly, a much better name!

What’s changed so far?
Here’s one:
The new logo, as you can see, is strikingly similar to the current InteractiveVoices logo. In addition to a new name, Voices.com will receive an updated look and feel, which will prove comfortable and familiar to you. Several new features are in the works at Voices.com, many of which were requested by you, our customers.
Early feedback from the business community has been contagiously positive, generating buzz from all angles and spreading like wild fire.

Why are we changing our name?
Company CEO, David Ciccarelli says, “Voices.com is a name that encompasses the entire industry, dropping the interactive media connotation, opening more doors to our customers. Voices.com is short, obvious, descriptive, and memorable.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself 🙂 If you want to help spread the word, blog about this and or link to the new Voices.com website.
The official launch is September 2006.
Cheers!
Stephanie

  4. You can’t imagine how tired my fingers were, typing your old name! Thanks for the change and congrats! I like the name!

  5. it’s a great change- for a great site! It stops it sounding like a niche market……..
    but when can we count on all the weblinks being updated and how long will the old ones last/continue to forward to the new host?
    I’d been just about to print a shedload of Publicity material- thank goodness I held off- other than that it’s a GGGRRRREAT move 🙂

    I love it! I’ve often struggled to remember the name of IV (only winning the struggle by hitching the memorable “IV” to the name). Now, I can spread the news far and wide…
    I AM WITH VOICES.COM!
    GET WITH VOICES.COM! … where the most compelling voices (including mine!) can be found!
    Take good care!
