Should I hire a cheap Voiceover?
When it comes to hiring a Voiceover Artist, how much should you spend?
Well, how long is a piece of string?
It comes down to your budget. You can find many Voiceover Artists on Fiverr for five dollars. But ask yourself: "Are they any good"? How many jobs would they have to do to scratch a living?
Call a professional
We recently had a phone call from an exasperated producer who had just spent two hours trying to get a good read from a Voiceover Artist that she had hired...and could we help find someone else?
Of course. After taking all the details I asked her budget. £90: £60 for the studio and £15 per hour for the voice talent.
Well of course we couldn't help her on that budget!
Its a false economy. Any decent Voiceover Artist that you hire through an agency would have done the job in 10 minutes. But then they would have charged a lot more.
Buy cheap. Pay Twice.
