The announcement:

The Brag Media’s Rolling Stone, Tone Deaf, and Others to Use OutVoice to Pay Freelancers

Australia’s The Brag Media announced today it has partnered with OutVoice (https://outvoice.com/) to pay its freelance writers and photographers.

OutVoice is the first freelancer management system that integrates directly into publishers’ Content Management Systems. OutVoice saves publishers time, money, and reputation by reducing invoicing to a single click which also publishes the freelancer’s content. All payments, onboarding, and record keeping are handled by OutVoice’s proprietary enterprise platform.

Brag Media’s five titles (Rolling Stone, Tone Deaf, The Brag, The Industry Observer, Don’t Bore Us) make it cumulatively the largest music media publisher in Australia. All titles are currently using or being onboarded to OutVoice.

“We are very sensitive to the fact that many freelancers really struggle with extended payment terms offered by most publishers” said Luke Girgis, CEO of Brag Media. “OutVoice technology allows us to pay freelancers instantly, as soon as their articles are published in a fully automated way. No longer do freelancers need to invoice us, go through accounts, and wait for the next pay run. We are super excited about what this will do for the talented freelancers who work across our titles. ”

OutVoice is led by Matt Saincome, former freelance writer and editor-turned-publisher of The Hard Times and Hard Drive.

“There’s pretty much no cause more near and dear to my heart than helping music publishers pay their writers in a way that saves everyone time,” Saincome said. “I actually used to write for Rolling Stone. So helping them pay their Australian freelancers in this revolutionary way means a lot to me, and our company’s mission to solve freelance invoice headaches for all parties involved.”
