Voice Over Rates

My Voice Over Rates Explained

There are a lot of variables that go into putting together a voice over rate card. Will my voice over be used for broadcast or non broadcast? What size is the market in which it will be used? Are you asking for market exclusivity? These are just a few of factors I consider.

What you will find below are my general base rates. This will give you a pretty good idea of what you’re looking at for my voice over services, though actual rates may vary. All job requests will be provided with an accurate quote once the specific project details are confirmed.
