Hourly rate Sep 10, 2015

Hello and welcome!

If you want to calculate your hourly rate, then you would have to assess how much you need per hour in order to pay your bills and make a living.

It seems that you are intending to use an external studio for the recordings. If so, then you should check their rates and at that to your invoice, based on how many hours you will need the studio. You can either include these "external" costs in your hourly rate or display them seperately on your invoice. It all depends on how long it takes you to complete a certain job and how much you will have to pay to the studio. I hope this helps.

Thank you Sep 10, 2015

Thank you so much for your response. It really helps. Yes I intend to use external studio because I don't have any resources on my own. Please how do I purchased a recording for my voice-over job in the future? I will have to include the studio fee. Thank you very much.
