January of 2009, I first mentioned Voicezam in this blog. Hard to believe it’s been more than 4 years ago. At the time, I didn’t have a lot of info on the site. But it’s creating buzz again (a few of us even discussed it in our VO MasterMind group call this week), and I see that the Voicezam site has been spiffed-up quite a bit.
Audio producer Bob Merkel runs the place. He’s devised a unique product with a lot of uses. Upload your demo to the Voicezam site…his process splits it into pieces which can be played individually in a virtual player that you can email, embed, send, post, and otherwise distribute just about anywhere!
In fact, it’s the usability factor that makes it so good for your business. See this page for a look at how the Voicezam player can be used.
I love the fact that you, as a member, have a lot of control over how the player looks, including the order of the segments, naming the individual segments, and even customizing the player.
Here’s a link to the Voicezam FAQ page, which will probably answer most of your questions.
You must be a working pro with 3 years under your belt, and the application process asks that you list your last 3 jobs. First month is free, then you have a basic membership that kicks in with some a la carte options that cost extra if you choose them (like metrics, and automatically adding your demos). Basic monthly service is $19.95.
Bob is excellent with returning answers to questions, and is very responsive with customer service.
What a great tool for your voice over business if the price is within your means.
