Voiceover do-gooders Diane Havens and Kat Keesling are putting out the call for additional volunteers to help out at HearTheBill.org (previously mentioned here). The House and the Senate have both rewritten their bills and doubled their lengths so it’s more important than ever to make sure that the information can be heard in an easy and bipartisan manner.
Yeah, whatever. Check it out: The site has now gotten a million hits (really!) and is getting press all over the place from the left and the right, from Rachel Maddow to Ann Coulter, from the New York Times to Fox Business News. Isn’t it about time you got a piece of that action for yourself?
One of the benefits of volunteering is the actual exposure and ability to get some big name press. The Wall Street Journal, Times News, Washington Post, NY Times, The Hill, US News & World Report, Fox Business and NPR as well as top industry press like VoiceTalentProductions, VoiceOverXtra, Voices.com, and individual blogs and sites of talents….
…If the talent helps spread the word locally, the story gets aired locally and usually with a local flavor targeting the talent themselves. Volunteering for HearTheBill doesn’t pay money, but it is indeed a marketing platform for the talent….
…It’s for a great cause to serve the community. The work done is able to be used without restriction in their demo and can be credited on their bio. They have a reason to contact their media outlets when things change…and that opportunity can open up a relationship with the station for business. It’s an instant credibility builder and we work hard to credit our volunteers well….
…All audio includes a byline of the talent linked back to their site and email. As you know, it helps to have links to your site from credible sites with high traffic. And we are credible with a ton of traffic and are relevant to Voice Sites. Even if someone doesn’t volunteer, linking to us helps.
Plus you can get one of these cool banners below to put on your site or blog to spruce up the place and make it seem like you are civic minded:

Big ups also to Evan Rapp and Jerry Horwath at Buzz Cutz Audio in Minneapolis who have donated many studio and engineering hours to the cause. Kudos.
