Don’t despair! Just because you're not invited yet, doesn't necessarily mean that you won't be able to audition.
Once a SmartCast project is posted on Voice123, SmartCast finds all Premium members that match the project specifications. It starts inviting them from best matching to least matching until the desired number of submissions is reached or all invitations have been sent. The client can increase the number of auditions requested and has the option to close the project at any time.
SmartCast was carefully designed to distribute auditioning opportunities fairly among all of our Premium Subscribers. Voice actors that are deemed more likely to be hired for the project, based on the information they have provided in their profiles, rankings, and other factors, are invited earlier than those who don't match as well.
The goal of the Voice123 platform is to get voice actors hired! We do this by providing a smaller, more focused pool of voice actors for a client to listen to, resulting in a better selection for clients, and a better chance of getting heard (and ultimately hired) for voice actors. To this end, 1% of voice actors that match a project's parameters are not invited to audition.
SmartCast works best when voice actors are selective. What do we mean when we say “selective?” Selective means submitting for projects that are a good match for your signature sound as the system works to maintain a balance between all paying Voice123 members. It's best to maintain a balance of 1-3 auditions a day to avoid any restrictions.
