Do I Need a Voice Over Rate Card? – Summer Series 2021 Episode 01


It’s probably the most discussed and debated topic in our entire industry… voice over rates!

How do I set rates? What are fair rates? What’s the rate for ______? Where do I go to find rates? Am I charging enough? How do I know if I am or not? The list of questions is nearly endless.

Then there’s that one other one… “Do I need a rate card and how do I build it?”

That’s the question I’m answering in this Summer Series episode. I’m not going to tell you not to have a rate card, but I definitely think voice actors WAY overthink the concept of the voice over rate card, and I also think many of them aren’t using them properly.

Thankfully, we have a couple of very valuable rate guides we can turn to for guidance on setting rates. Those guides all but eliminate our need for rate cards while at the same time, offering us a starting point for building a rate card should you so choose.
