VOICE OVER PAY
New Voice Over Poll Results: Lowest
Pay You'd Accept For A Voice Over Job
May 22, 2017
(VOXtra) - All right, we admit it. The poll question sent to VoiceOverXtra readers and social media groups on May 9 lacked the opportunity to explain reasons and situations for any particular job:
Under normal circumstances (not charity, etc.), what is the approximately LOWEST $$ you will accept for a single voice over job?
Still, what we learned was interesting.
The most common answer: $100, which was chosen by 24% of the respondents
Interestingly, $100 was the most common answer to the same question when asked in September 2012 (29% of respondents).
This year, the second most common "lowest" amount was $150 (18%). In 2012, the second most common answer was "union scale" (chosen by 18%), and we regret that this option was not included in the answers to the current question.
Also this year, nearly half (42%) won't touch the record button for less than $200 or more.
Some respondents this year questioned the validity of the question, with comments like:
"Interesting question, but without the size of the project?" And "You should clarify on this. What type of job?"
Well, we agree, and will clarify it in future polls of the voice over community.
