Hello all,

   I was wondering if I could get some feedback regarding voice over rates. I am a voice actress and am considering adding rates to my site:

After reviewing my samples, what kind of rates would you expect to pay? Here is a rate card that seems to be the standard non-union prices for video game voice over:

 

Console Games, iPhone Games, iPad Games, Android Games

Per minute 100   

00 to 05 minutes 100-250  

06 to 15 minutes 250-500  

16 to 30 minutes 500-750  

31 to 45 minutes 750-1000  

46 to 60 minutes 1000-2500

 

Would you say those are reasonable prices? What do you think would be fair? Do you prefer to pay a percentage after sales rather than a flat rate up front? Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Yeah, I think you're right. Do you think having on the front page "Willing to work within your budget" is clear enough? 

 

 

Because I want indie developers with small budgets to know that I can still work with them. 

 

The reason why most people don't say the former is because some clients may want to only pay $1 for all of their audio. Are you willing to work within that small of a budget? What I stress to my clients is that I'm flexible, within reason. That I want to work with them and meet their needs but, at the same time, I need to pay my own bills and feel my craft and time are worth something.

Yeah, I guess that's kind of my fear. If I advertise "work within your budget" I might be getting really low offers and might get taken advantage of. I think in the end I'll just say that rates vary depending on the project and leave it at that.
