And of course Pay to Play sites
We know there's a mindset for beginning actors coming up in this changed landscape that says
"I don't need an agent" to find voice-work out there. As a Client, perhaps you don't think you have a budget for professional talent or you think casting directors and agents make things more difficult and take too much time (we've heard it all).
BUT, If you are going to use a Pay 2 Play casting site. At least use a VOC recommended one.
These are the only one's making an effort to work with the VO industry today.

bodalgo.com Unlike other websites of its kind, bodalgo will not allow amateurs to join its roster. Therefore, every profile is manually checked (and rejected in case the quality of the demos provided does not support a professional impression).
What's more, every job gets reviewed manually before it is sent out to matching talents. Even before a job gets in the approval queue, bodalgo's automatic budget control system checks for low budgets in real time and prompts the client to reconsider the budget offered.
bodalgo offers a free basic membership that will give talents full database exposure. Clients can contact basic talents with no one paying. Premium members will be able to audition for jobs posted. Membership starts at 24,90 Euro monthly (around 28 USD at the time of writing). There are also half-yearly and yearly plans available.
bodalgo is run by Armin Hierstetter, a Rock Star.

"Many online voice casting sites allow anyone (who’s willing to pay) the ability to audition. That may be great for that site’s revenue stream, but it’s the antithesis of casting’s true purpose: to find the best talent for the job. We care more about the outcome, than the income." ~ Select Vo
