Ensuring your samples have the correct tags can be a game-changer when it comes to showing up in our Search results.
They help clients find your samples if they have what they are looking for! For instance, if a client needs the voice of a monster for a video game, and you have a sample tagged with “monster” then they will find it in Search and book you!
To add, remove, or modify sample tags, follow this process:
- Login to your account.
- On your dashboard, click on your name and picture.
- Go to Your Samples from the main menu.
- Locate the sample you want to add tags to.
- Click on Add Tags.
- There are 2 ways to add the tags:
- Start typing the tag you want to add and our system will show you auto-completed options for you to choose the word you're looking for.
- Click on See All. This will display a list with all the tags we have for that specific category. You can look for the one that matches your sample the best and click it.
We have 5 different types of tags you can add to your samples:
Accent: Here you can add specific accents you’re doing from your country. You can be as specific as you want since we have plenty of options for you to choose from.
Style: Here you can add the specific style you’re using for your voiceover. Is it sad? Happy? Outgoing? Professional? The possibilities are endless!
Character: Here you can add any character/role you are playing with your voice. Are you voicing a monster or a robot or just a simple girl-next-door?
Impression: Here you can add any famous impersonations you’re channeling in your voice over. From Morgan Freeman to SpongeBob, you can choose the option that fits your performance best.
Pitch: What kind of pitch does your voice quality have? Are you deep, low, high pitched or neutral?
I want to add a tag but the word doesn't exist, what do I do?
This is a great question! First, try to look for a synonym. Maybe the exact word you're looking for doesn't exist, but a similar one can. Second, please share your keyword suggestions with us in the following Community Post. Our team will make sure the tags are reviewed and added to the list as we update the feature.
How should I choose the attributes for my samples?
