Many people say voice over is so much fun they’d do it for free.
And yes, it is fun. But unless you’ve taken a vow of poverty or are independently wealthy, why would you give away your valuable talent without being fairly compensated?
Yet that’s what many people do.
They either bid (and accept) fees that are way too low, allow themselves to be intimidated by price buyers, or shy away from learning some basic price negotiation skills.
The voice over work we do is not just talking and goofing around behind the mic. It’s a skill that, when deployed, allows your customers to make lots and lots of money, and that has real value.
Heck, a TV spot I once voiced for “Topsy Tail” sold well over $50 million worth of hair gizmos. (Look it up on YouTube. It’s a direct response classic.)
So how do you negotiate your rates so it’s a win-win for both you and the client?
Today I’ve got some key distinctions about getting paid in Susan Berkley’s Inside Voice Over video training. Take a look and let me know what you think.
