How Do I Edit My Profile?

In this article we’ll review how to edit your profile, what your profile will look like once published, and how clients will navigate those profiles to invite you to jobs or search for certain voice over categories. 

Quick Tip: You can only edit your profile on a computer or tablet. Editing on the mobile app is not currently possible.             

A complete profile is made up of a number of components. We’ll review each of those components here and go over step-by-step how to edit them. To begin editing your profile, you must log in and click the ‘Me’ avatar in the top navigation bar, then click ‘Edit Profile.’ 

The first thing you’ll see after clicking ‘Edit Profile’ is a tab called: 

Personal Info

Your Personal Info will house public-facing information about you that visitors to Voices can see. The following components make up Personal Info: First Name, Last Name, Displayed Address (shown on your public profile and in location-based search results), your public profile link, and your profile photo. 

Profile Photo

We highly recommend that you upload a photo to your profile. Your profile is your professional calling card, and your photo, voice over categories, and demos come together to attract clients to your profile through search/browse and to allow VoiceMatch™ to match you to jobs best-suited to your skills. The most hired talent on Voices typically have a headshot in their profile. When you use a headshot, it's important to keep your photo current. You should have a new headshot taken every two to five years. 

Quick Tip: For best results, upload a square image with equal dimensions and a picture of yourself that represents who you are as a creative professional and business person.

To upload your picture, you'll:

  1. Need to save the image as a .gif or .jpg and have it saved as a file on your computer. Then you will need to sign into your account and access the profile editor by hovering over the ‘Me’ avatar in the top navigation bar and selecting ‘Edit Profile’
  2. Scroll to the Profile Photo section and select ‘Upload Photo’
  3. Then you will browse your computer for your image file, select it and the path to the file will appear in the Select File box.
  4. Click ‘Save Edits’ at the bottom of the profile page. The file should now appear in the Profile area of your account as well as on your personal website.

Profile Completeness 

Your My Home is a great place to see at a glance which pieces of information you still need to add to your profile. Once you click on Add next to any of these recommendations, you'll be taken to the relevant spot in your Edit Profile view and be able to see immediately what's missing. This will tell you what components of your profile still need to be filled out. A complete profile helps you to be found in Search/Browse and tells VoiceMatch™ what types of jobs you’re a good fit for, so the more complete your profile is, the better.

Quick Tip: You can add basic text formatting (boldface and italics) to your profile at Voices. We recommend that you keep your profile nice and clean by only using it to highlight key information or help to separate your page into sections.
The following codes can be inserted around a single word, phrase, or entire paragraphs. There should be no spaces between the code and the word beside it.

  • Code for Bold: *Your text goes here.*
  • Code for Italics: _Your text goes here._

Overview, Demos, Statistics

After completing the Personal Info section, you’ll see three other tabs across the top of the page: Overview, Demos, and Statistics.


About Me

Under Overview, you'll see an About Me section with a box to write a Talent Description. Take this opportunity to tell the client about you, your voice over experience, and anything else you feel sets you apart. Don't be afraid to add some personality to this section. 

In this section you can choose which types of jobs your voice is best-suited to by selecting the types of jobs you want to audition for and be invited to from a drop-down menu of options. Popular categories include video narration, online ad, audiobooks, etc. 

Vocal Characteristics
Vocal Characteristics covers in more detail and with very specific tagging what you’re able to do with your voice. It’s important to include only what you are truly capable of performing (i.e. if you can’t perform in a specific accent, style, or language, don’t include it just to get more job opportunities.) This section is made up of your Voice Gender, Voice Age, Language, and Accents.

Voice Gender 
Voice gender indicates which gender you want your voice jobs to be in, either male or female. 

Voice Age 
Voice Age represents the ages that your voice can sound like. You can select multiple ages; however, you’ll want to select only the ones you can authentically perform. Featuring demos that showcase each voice age you selected is also beneficial to those visiting your profile.

Language allows you to select up to 10 languages you can fluently speak. Do not select languages you can understand only (i.e. can read, write, or comprehend by listening.) You’ll want to select only the languages you can comfortably and confidently speak and perform in fluently. It is a good idea to include a demo to reflect each language selection. Your mother tongue should be selected first, followed by other languages you speak.

You can also select up to 30 Accents from the pick list. At minimum, you should include your regional accent or reference that you have a neutral accent relevant to the country in which you live. Again, list only the accents you can confidently perform in.

Quick Tip: When it comes to describing your voice, there are several factors that come into play, both creative and technical. Here are some ideas to consider when getting started:

  • Listen to a recording of your natural voice.
  • Describe the sonic quality of your voice and voice type.
  • Ask a coach, your family, or your friends for their opinion.
  • Make a list of descriptive words that best reflect your voice.
  • Think of what your voice inspires people to do.
  • ​Avoid using common terms such as deep, high, funny, and so on. Consult a thesaurus and find colorful words.

For example, your description may go something like this: 
Witty, vivacious, and warm, the voice of (insert your name) is perfect for television commercials, telephone applications, and narrating children's programming. The graceful and subtle persuasion of (insert your name’s) voice will gently and happily woo customers into purchasing your product.
The Studio section allows you to tell clients what type of equipment you use while recording. Clients want the highest quality audio possible, so showing them that you’ve got the tools to deliver what they want can make the difference when they are considering inviting or hiring you.

Turnaround Time indicates how long the client can expect to wait to receive the final files after you’ve been hired (e.g. less than 24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours, etc.).

Live Directed Sessions tells clients if and how you can participate in a live directed session. Select all of the technology options you are most comfortable with. If you have never used a specific technology before, it’s best you explore and try it before selecting it. For more information on Live Directed Sessions, read this blog post and this FAQ .

Microphone, Computer & Software, and Special Equipment allows you to give clients an idea of what your home studio set up is like, including the hardware and software you use to record and deliver audio. 


With each demo uploaded, you can include a title and brief description as well as tagging the demo with any applicable language, accent, style, role, and voice gender. You must also select one category tag that the demo sample relates most closely to—for example, Video Narration, Animation, Audiobooks, etc. All of this information is essential for enabling the demo to be accurately matched to job postings and to appear in Search.

Each demo that you upload can be added to a client's Favorites list to help them more easily locate and invite talent whose auditions they have enjoyed. Use caution when deleting demos: when a demo is deleted so are any Favorites attached to it.

By default your profile will show your top four demos, which you can manage by editing your profile. You can shift the order of your demos around by clicking on the arrows to the left of each demo and dragging that demo up or down. The demo at the top of your list will be your Featured Demo and will appear associated with your profile in search results. 


There are high-level metrics that clients see on your public profile and statistics that you will see in your 'Edit Profile' view. Your Statistics section gives you a great snapshot into how your business is doing, showing you things like how many demo listens you’ve had, your earnings, how many jobs you’ve been shortlisted for, your hired jobs, and your booking ratio, etc. For more information about Statistics, check out this FAQ article.

Public Profile Components

While you’re editing, you can see what your profile looks like once published at any time by clicking on 'View Profile' from the left column of the page.

We’ve listed the basic components of your public profile below and then addressed a few of the sections in greater detail.

  1. Your Personal Info, Profile Photo, Location, number of reviews, and any talent achievement badge will be visible as a header across the top of your public profile.
  2. Portfolio tab - includes any packages first and then your demos.
  3. Review section
  4. About Talent tab - houses your About Me section, followed by Vocal Characteristics (Languages, Accents, Voice Ages, Categories), then Studio, and Reviews
  5. High-Level Metrics - In the right-hand column clients can view your public-facing metrics, such as when you were last online and how long you’ve been a member of Voices)
  6. On the right-hand side your past clients will also be listed as well as instructions to the client as to how to work with you.

How Clients Listen to or View your Demos

By default, the top six Demos you’ve added will display on your public profile. If you have more than six, the See More option allows clients to view more.

Clients can click on any of your demos from your public profile and a detailed page will pop up for them. On this page, they can listen to your demo. They’re also able to see at a glance all of the information you would have included in that demo description and the descriptive tags you would have applied to that demo. This makes it very easy for clients to listen and see everything they need to in one easy place. 


Near the bottom of your public profile page, to complement the other areas of your profile, you'll see Compliments, Ratings, and Reviews that you've received from clients after completed jobs worked through Voices. All of your Compliments will appear in this Reviews section, along with the three most recent Reviews you've received. More reviews can be displayed in batches of three, if the user clicks 'Load More'.  For more information on Reviews, read this FAQ article.
