Non-union Standard Rates: Help Set the Industry Benchmark
Want to make a difference? Now’s the time for your voice to be heard! Leave a comment on this post to help develop the new Voices.com Standard Rate Sheet for Non-union Voice-over work.
A few years ago, we polled about 100 non-union professional voice talent from North America and asked them what they were charging for specific services. After the initial feedback, we averaged the rates across the board and developed a Standard Rates Sheet with the purpose of educating clients and talent who needed help with budgeting and or quoting. Well, that was three years ago, and the current PDF Rates sheet needs some updating. We’ve heard feedback from many of you that we need to revise this document and raise the bar again in the industry!
I’ve included the current rates listed on the sheet and would like to ask you to comment on what you think needs changing, what may need to be added, and also, which rates need to be increased.
Here we go!
