Last December 2009, Voice123 posted a total of 870 voice over jobs through their automated system SmartCast, which boasts to find voice talent for clients in just over an hour. As of December 15th, 2010, Voice123 has posted over 650 voice over jobs through SmartCast with 15 days left in the month. Compared to last year, the daily job posting has nearly doubled, with a steady increase in budgets for voice over jobs listed.
In addition, in the last 10 days, Voice123 has handled close to 7,000 voice over auditions and customer service inquiries combined. Voice123 is currently on pace to provide over 1000 SmartCast voice over jobs each month for the year 2010.
Based on client interactions, and auditions, the staff comments that they believe this month's unexpected rush is attributed to simply 'being there for the voice industry' during a time when most businesses would normally take vacation. Voice123 staff understands that the voice over industry works on its own schedule, especially during times when work is readily available. The unexpected holiday rush of 'jobs' has even led to management chipping in to directly work with customer service tickets and live chats.
