I just got the automated notice that my year is nearly up with voices.com, and while I have made enough money through them to cover my fee many times over, I'm electing not to renew, because...
A vast majority of jobs posted do not include word count, or other indication of length. This would be a very easy number to provide for any client with a script created in any word processor.
If I include time spent landing the jobs in my assessment of ROI, this is a deal-killer. The need to create disclaimers of how my bid is based on assumptions and could change with other lengths, blah blah blah, is (a) a waste of time, and (b) a poor start to a client relationship.
The additional communication steps required in such a transaction are fine if you're not doing much work and have time to kill. Is voices.com trying to cater to newbies?
Am I missing something, or being too hasty? If you're with voices.com, how do you deal with this issue?
