One of the most common remarks made about Voice123 rankings are, “I was ranked Finalist, and 1st out of… But I was never hired, so what does that really mean?”.
Recently, I did some research into those ranked in the top 200 on Voice123, and all that research showed me that voice seeker rankings on Voice123 are incredibly simple. Some have asked me how SmartCast is connected with rankings, and simply put, voice seekers can save voice talent in their own account.
The Top 50
- The research I did involved looking up all people who were ranked.
- If you are a child, or a person who speaks a rare language, you are most likely one of the Top 50 voice talent on Voice123.
- The best ranking on the website belongs to Weston Snider, a young child in a family of voice talent.
- These voice talent tend to see fewer invitations, and when they do, the voice seeker saves the voice talent in their account because they were hard to find.
Ranked 51 – 100…The main competition for everyone
- They are online voice over talent, audition frequently, professional, experienced, and industry ‘players’.
- They are the type of people who wake up, roll out of bed, and into a voice over booth.
- They may not be ranked well always, but that is because (to use a baseball metaphor)…”your best players get a hit 3 out of 10 times.”
- You get ranked well if you are a rarity, talented, do something original, experienced at working ONLINE, and you are a career voice talent.
More simple thinking…it seems to matter
- Being a child, having an attractive headshot, and hard to find online, helps your ranking.
- Welcome to working online…No one wants to give a child bad news, looks can matter, and doing something no one else does behind a mic is greatly appreciated.
- To me, this does not sound any different than working offline, but the stage is different.
- Rankings say something about who is hiring because no one has a perfect score, and no one is hired for every job. This means that just because they are ranked well, does not mean they are hired all the time on Voice123. But they are probably hired somewhere on any given day, or could/should be.
