Let’s Chat About Rates

Voice actors are known for their supportive and enabling acts of kindness.  As a community, most other freelance professionals don't come close.  But in one realm, voiceover talents keep their cards close to the vest. Rates. It's not that we wouldn't share information if asked.  But almost no one ever does.  Personally, I believe there's a certain fear that we'll find out we're not asking enough compensation from our clients... or that we're devaluing our talent and knowledge in the marketplace.
