The Voice123 brand is a determent to whatever semblance of a “brand” I might have. And what I mean by that is because of the numerous active entry-level talent with very limited abilities listed within Voice123, combined with clients posting little-to-no pay jobs, including paying jobs that are consistently well below fair market rates, associating my name on your site actually devalues my accomplishments as an actor.
At this site is an uproarious exchange between the blogger and someone from Voice123. It continues into the Comments with others chiming in.
But I pulled that quote for a reason. Writers need to stop and think about where they’re placing their stuff and what such associations create in the mind of potential readers.
We’re losing money, but hopefully we’re making customers for life.
Every choice must have trust in mind. What does your audience think about you making a deal with this corporation. What does your audience think about your ticket prices. What does your audience think about each and every move you make. Because believe me, they’re paying attention, that’s what a fan does.
