It seems like voiceover jobs can run the gamut, from people wanting work done for free to jobs paying thousands of dollars. Of course, it can get a bit complicated and convoluted, when you start to factor in type of job, length of script, usage, market, etc. If you’re not sure what to charge when a client contacts you, trying checking out these #voiceover rate cards:
— Edge Studio’s Voiceover Rate Card
— Voices.com’s Rate Card for clients (to help them determine what to ask for when hiring talent)
While some argue that each individual job is too different for voiceover talent to create a rate card (and instead, they should create personalized quotes for each potential client — which, by the way, I’m a big fan of, from a professional perspective!), at least having these baseline guides for rates will help us all maintain a certain level of professionalism within the industry.
I hope this helps you bill out your next job!
