Frequently Asked Questions

Voice overs range from $100 to $10,000 or even more depending on the category of work, the size of the audience listening to the voice over, the duration of the campaign and if there is an exclusivity required, meaning that the voice actor cannot record for any competing company in an industry.
Usage is a term in the job posting or agreement that limits the scope for how the voice over is to be used. Usage is limited by media (radio, TV or Internet advertising campaign), duration (length of the campaign), or geography (size of campaign typically local, regional, national or global).
A buyout, sometimes called a full buyout, is a term that grants the client unlimited worldwide usage of the voice over recording. The default for non-broadcast, non-promotional work such as recordings for telephone systems, elearning material and podcasts are full buyout with no limits on the term or restrictions on usage.
