Hi! I´m writing because I was wondering about going rates for voiceovers? I was offered a job and was asked about my rates but I have no idea how to calculate it. It´s something I´d record from home and it´s the alphabet plus about 15 words.
Does anyone have any idea?
Thanks!

Just use your normal jour based rates, not much work, so I guess you're looking at a minimum fee of an hour or two...

Exactly. You never know whether a session will take an hour or several. If you think it'll take less, then you can set a minimum rate (1 hour?).
