2019 Voice Over Rate Card

2019 Voice Over Rate Card – Martin Huhn

You  need to get a voice for your project… For example. the company needs a voice for the phone system. It could be just a welcome message, or a fully interactive IVR set of statements ranging from small to elaborate. What about your Real Estate videos? Want to impress those buyers with not only a beautiful virtual tour, but why not have a vote that affirms the buyer that it is being presented by a professional agent!

Broadcasters and advertisers know that the voice for a product is as essential as the images and text. Emotion, breath and pace will catch the attention of the viewer when they leave the room when the ‘commercial’ is on. I have the experience not only with voice, but also with the writing and production of hundreds of corporate videos, training films, e-learning projects, and every form of broadcast there is. TV, cinema, radio, internet, phone, audio guide commentaries, etc.

Martin’s voice has been used by pretty much every global company and broadcast on every global English language news channel! You can have a look and listen to his Electronic Press Kit.

When you are looking for a voice to add to your project there are many variables that must be considered  in the price that include:

  • Broadcast or non-broadcast
  • Size of the market
  • Market exclusivity
  • Duration of use

These are just a few of the factors that make up the pricing for a voice over. With all this said, here is the list. If you cannot find the exact use (i.e. podcasts, ADR), please contact Martin via email.

Episode 8 New Year Take Out 2018

Well… 2018 is well underway, no turning back. But how do we make it through the busy day? Take out of course! In the Comox Valley, there are some daily rituals and they have to be followed in order, or do they? The show is on air this week on ShawTV Channel 4 in the North Vancouver Island region. It can also be found right here!

I made sure that I was in ‘character’ by having a just woke up look with my hair. Seriously, we make every effort to get the realism happening here at ‘the crossroads’! So take out something for yourself! 😉

Statistics Look Promising

Well it seems that since the show started, I have a lot of positive feedback in the sense of online visits to my site. A new design and of course, a new show give me all the promise of an even better 2018 for my program and the creative content I produce for many companies and projects around the world.

Here is a sneak peek at the stats since the show went on air. Given a zero advertising budget and just some simple web SEO have brought around 200 daily visitors to the site and around 400 page visits per day. You can see when the program went “live” and the views increased dramatically. Although my focus is on paying clients for my web design, for my own projects, it’s nice to see some activity here.

Thanks for “clicking”! – Martin @ the Crossroads
