As you may or may not know I'm not a voice over artist or station owner. I came to BW because someone on a different forum recommend BW. So I came here and got the help I was looking for.

By visiting BW I became interested in the topics here. Then I got an idea (I always seem to get in trouble this way...lol) OK, BW is for station owners and voice over artist. Then I got the idea it would be great if there was a place for web site owners to advertise their site with Audio.


So I bought and built audio ad directory and my gola is too get people to use mp3 files along with their link/ad in the directory. I don't do voice overs so I placed links to BW (forum) for two reasons:
1: I like the forum and I'm trying to help bring traffic to it.
2: If anyone is interested in a voice over they can come here.


But, the voice over request section seems to be for stations. If someone came here looking to have a an audio ad /voice over made. They wouldn't know where to post the request. Maybe set up a section in Imaging for web site owners looking for a voice over artist. This way when people are not a voice over artist or station owner join BW they can post a request in that section.


Also while reading a topic I went to this link


http://www.broadcastingworld.net/imaging/marketplace/ (http://www.broadcastingworld.net/imaging/marketplace/)


the page isn't loading. Is this still being worked on?
If it is, let me know when it's ready and I'll place a link to it on my site.
I think something like that would help a lot of people decide if they want to get an Audio Ad or not.

I have taken the marketplace away because over 70% found it hard to use and difficult to understand!

But if others really want to get it back up and running, i can :)

I think that if you don't have the marketplace up then you should put the "paid requests" back up. Or whatever it was called...

Either is fine with me James. Personally I thought that the Market place was a great idea but unfortunately nobody really used it. I think that the topic "paid requests and offers" got more traffic and it got me some business in the past. Whatever you do is fine with me bud, even if you leave it exactly the way it is now. Thanks for creating and maintaining such a great forum.

Cool. Maybe you could have some kind if image at the top of the forum that a user sees as soon as they go to the forum? And some kind of big blurb on the home page??

I will stick a message when a user posts a new thread in the voiceover section and i will do a major promotion of it.
