Business Benefiting from using Professional Voice Actors

Numerous small businesses have long believed that hiring a professional voice actor to record for applications such as on hold messages, phone messages and whiteboard explainer voiceovers was too expensive. Recently voice over services website The Voice Realm launched a new feature called QUICKCAST, to bring small business professional voices at affordable rates.

QUICKCAST uses technology, six months in development, to find voice actors that are suited to the script, with experienced voices willing to give small business clients great .

The Voice Realm is now the world’s biggest network of voice over casting websites, only listingvoice talent with experience. Countless other sites allow anyone to join if they are willing to part with $300 or more. This of course opens the floodgates for amateurs to appear alongside professionals.

The website has experienced exponential growth in the past 6 months and is now expanding its offerings to clients that have smaller budgets than many large advertising agencies and fortune 500 companies.

Lauren Maree, support manager for The Voice Realm says the site continues to supply national advertising agencies, but has developed technology to bring rates down for clients with smaller budgets. “Client’s who use QUICKCAST are going to be receiving the same actors that appear on national TV and radio commercials but at affordable rates within their budget.”

The system scans their roster of male and female voice talent to find a voice that is able to record a broadcast quality version of the finalized script in less than three hours in most instances.

Following the initial recording, clients are able to give the voice talent feedback on the style, tone and pace of the audio file. The voice actor then records again using a professional studio, with this second recording still being included in the flat rate.

The Voice Realm voice over services website is revolutionizing professional audiobook recordings by streamlining the process of casting voice talent at affordable rates. The site launched in March 2012 and lists over 400 of the world’s best voices.

Customer service staff are located in North America, Europe, and Asia. They are available around the clock to assist with castings, auditions and bookings.

Ezhopz, the online shopping mall

1_shoppingmallonlineEzhopz, the online shopping mall has its origin near the tech city of Netherlands, Eindhoven which is a tiny industrial and commercial centre. It was conceived by the young entrepreneur John Meyers and his team of young developers who after taking note of the wishes and requirements of the established business houses thought of creating an online shopping mall where anyone can sell or rent their products and the customers would have a world of items to choose from a single platform. It was really an idea, when actualized would take the experience of online shopping one step further and provide a veritable platform for small businessmen to sell their wares.

There were hardly any opportunity for the small business owners who couldn’t afford to spend so much money on online promotional and maintenance of webshops.

It was no doubt a revolutionary idea that would create a space for micro economy in the macro economic world where even home made products can be sold or rented, locally using geo-targetting functions and even across the world. Not only from the point of view of the enterprises, it would really be a truly global experience for the visitors of the online shopping community as they can buy or hire any item that is not available in the regional market.

5 Essentials for Business Success in the Digital World

Digital technologies are forcing an unprecedented pace of change for business. They are not only changing the way we communicate but are also causing us to reshape our business models.To determine whether your business is on track to becoming an effective digital business, you need to ask the five following questions:

1. Do you proactively monitor the industry changes that are affecting your business?
Use web based tools to help track the impact that converged technologies are having on all aspects of your business, such as customer behaviors, new suppliers, technology trends etc. This approach will give you a holistic perspective of your industry and enable you to identify strategic options ahead of your competition.

2. Do you encourage collaborative behaviors within your organization?
It is crucial that your company provides the tools and environment that enable the sharing of knowledge and information in order to tap into one of its most valuable attributes – the tacit knowledge (the accumulated skills, experience and know-how) of your employees.

3. Do you regularly engage with communities external to your company?
It is essential to adopt a digital mindset and rethink how your business can more effectively engage (interact, listen, learn and co-create) with the rapidly growing collective knowledge base outside of your company in order to understand changing customer requirements, generate new ideas and gain important feedback.

4. Do you disrupt your business model?
Traditional business models, tools and methodologies do not adapt well to the opportunities and threats encountered in today’s digital world. First you need to understand how the individual elements of your existing model work together and then take full advantage of digital technologies to create a disruptive new business model – before your competition does it for you!

5. Do you inspire your employees to bring innovation into the workplace?
You need to encourage your employees to leverage the mobile and social technologies that they use in their everyday lives to generate innovative ideas that will enhance, simplify and accelerate the business processes within your company.

Have you answered “yes” to all the above questions? If so, yours is one of the few businesses with the foresight to understand that adopting a new mindset is essential in today’s fast paced digital environment. If you answered “no”, it’s not too late to follow the five steps above and begin the process of transforming your traditional organization into a truly digital one!
