There’s such a varied range of voiceover work from commercials to explainer videos and documentary narration to telephone IVR that there isn’t a one size fits all price list. The simplest way is to get in touch with the details of your work and I’ll quickly get back to you with a great price.
Please use the following as a GUIDE to help give you an idea but remember these can be tailored to suit your exact needs too.
You can also click here for the GFTB Rate card which has a detailed list of industry rates covering most genres of voiceover.
My Basic Studio Fee is £250
- Corporate voiceover
I’d charge my BSF for internal work plus a buy-out if it is to go online of usually 100% of the total.
- Educational voiceover
A rough guide is to budget for 24p per word. Obviously where you intend to broadcast or distribute makes a difference.
- Telephony (on-hold, IVR)
A voicemail message is totally different to a massive phone system! So, I have a £50 minimum order.
- Radio voiceover
These are based on station usage.
- TV Commercials voiceover
Session fee and usage paid according to TVRs (TV Ratings). Session fee minimum £250.
If you’re not sure what to ask for, then it may also be useful to have a think about the following:
- Approximate length of the voice over script
- Broadcast or non-broadcast?
- Accent /dialect or style specifications
- Which format – mp3/wav etc?
- Do you require a sample recording of your voice over?
