Your profile on Voquent contains a wealth of information to help prospective clients find voice talent suitable for their voice over needs. Though the client usually begins their search by filtering through the myriad demos available to them, the client will end up with a shortlist of prospective talent, and this is when the client will look at the individual profiles of voice over artists.
One of the potential differentiators presented to clients on your Voquent profile page is a series of badges. Though having badges is by no means a necessity, it does indicate to prospective clients that you have a degree of versatility and range in your offerings. Most badges indicate that you have a required number of demos that meet certain characteristics, such as intended use, or vocal characteristics.
During the profile creation process, the voice artist has declared that they have a home studio in which they can perform and record their voice overs.
Home Studio - Verified
In addition to self-declaring that they have a home studio, the voice artist has undergone a verification process with the help of a Voquent engineer, to verify that they not only have a home studio, but that it meets Voquent’s standards for sound treatment, noise floor, and audio file submission.
