The new Voices iOS app will soon be available for free in the iTunes app store and will allow customers all the functionality of the Voices.com website, including the ability for actors to respond to auditions or check the status of jobs while on the road away from the computer. The app will also allow businesses to search, audition, hire and pay voice talent through their iPhone.
“With 14% of all traffic to Voices.com coming from mobile devices, this shift is mandatory to keep up with tech savvy consumers,” says Ben Jackson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Voices.com. The app allows casting directors and voice talent to carry their auditions and demos in their pockets and reflects a fundamental shift in the way voice-overs will be cast in a mobile world.
“The industry has undergone many changes in the past few years. Just like we saw the shift in the voiceover industry moving online we are now seeing the same shift going mobile,” says David Ciccarelli, Chief Executive Officer of Voices.com. “Our goal is to make the connection between voice talent and client as easy as possible and I think the iPhone app does just that. This app will fundamentally change the way professional voice talent are being sourced and the way people are sourcing them.”
“The accessibility of the marketplace is empowering a lot of new customers.” says, Stephanie Ciccarelli, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer at Voices.com. “People who think a professional voice talent is too difficult to find or too expensive are now starting to realize how easy it is to hire a professional whose voice suits their brand and objectives. Booming markets such as audio publishing and interactive are what’s driving a lot of the industry’s growth.”
