Earlier today, I saw a buyers request for a 700 word voice over having a budget of $5! And another for an entire whiteboard video again for only $5. I don’t understand why everyone thinks a VO gig isn’t worth more than that! The time and work involved is worth way more than that! How can anyone hope to make decent money here when everyone wants to pay $5 for everything?! Please tell me if I’m missing something here? I love the idea of freelancing and the new “gig economy”, but I don’t know how you can make any real money on these low-ball job offers. Can any other VO artists chime in and set me straight if I am indeed missing something?
Thanks for reading my rant. :-)
