What makes ClearVoice so great is that you can assign someone from your own team, or you can send it off to the “marketplace” where ClearVoice will pair the perfect writer with the best matched experience to collaborate on the project. Anyone from your team can also contribute, and when the piece has reached perfection you can quickly publish and pay the freelancer with one easy click. Voila! Bor-ing be gone!
