Summer 2021 Recap - Recent Platform Updates Product News

What We Launched in May and June

While we just finished officially launching the ability for clients and talent to work jobs in new creative services like audio production, music, and translation, we should still take a second to look at all the features we launched or improved upon in May and June that helped get us to this point.


Become a Voices Expert in Minutes with Voices Lessons

Here at Voices, one of our top priorities is to ensure that you have all the tools and resources you need to be as successful as you can be, whether that’s as a client hiring talent, or as a talent looking to work with clients. That’s why we introduced our latest resource, Voices Lessons, an interactive guide to all-things Voices. 

Start Off on the Right Foot with More Transparent Agreements and Multi-Usage Job Postings

Job Agreements are arguably one of the most important elements of every job on Voices. They establish the expectations set between clients and talent, and act as the single source of truth for any job. With more transparent Job Agreements, and the ability for clients to add more than one usage scenario to a job posting, clients and talent can be even more informed about, and clear on, what each party expects from the other. 

See All Your Jobs at a Glance With Your Refreshed My Home Dashboard

When you log in to your Voices client account you are immediately taken to your My Home dashboard. As this is the first place you’ll go, we wanted to ensure you are seeing the information you need to post a job, take the next steps, or work with familiar talent on your current or next job. With a cleaner look that provides better direction, we are confident that the new My Home dashboard will help you get the job done that much faster than before. 

Maximize Your Workflows and Opportunities with Refreshed Profile and My Home Experience

For talent, there are few more critical pieces of the Voices experience than your profile. That’s why we made some additional improvements to better showcase and collect all the services and skills you offer. Additionally, as the My Home dashboard is the first thing you see when you log in, we wanted to ensure we are showing you the most relevant and actionable information so you know exactly what you can and should do after logging in. With a clearer overview of your jobs, as well as a summary of your profile, the new My Home dashboard serves up the info you need to act quickly and to be as successful as possible on Voices.

Experience Community with Your Voices Peers

We continued to hear from talent that they wanted a place to connect with one another and learn from one another. That’s why we launched our own talent-focused Community Forum for our members to connect, share ideas, ask questions, and become better creatives. The number of talent joining our online community grows each and every day, and we are incredibly excited to see what you and your fellow community members do with it. 


Get Help Budgeting with Recommended Budgets

Sometimes budgeting for your next project isn’t as simple as it seems. There are a lot of factors to consider, and if you don’t already have a set budget in mind, it may be challenging to determine one. That’s why we launched our new Recommended Budget feature for non-broadcast voice over jobs. We look at your job as you’re posting it and then recommend a budget based on past successfully completed jobs that look similar to yours, thus increasing the likelihood that your job will be completed just as successfully. 

What’s coming up?

With the excitement of the launch of our new creative services still very much fresh in our minds, we’ll be taking time to do some behind-the-scenes improvements to your Voices experience over the next couple of months. That’s not to say there won’t be any new updates or features going out over this time, we just want to make sure everything is running smoothly, listen to your feedback and act quickly on it, and take care of some quick wins before tackling some bigger features and improvements.
