If you've been in the business for a while, you are probably familiar with revisions.
A revision, when pertaining to voice-overs, is an alteration made to an existing recording, whether it be slight or significant.
Usually, ongoing revisions are made to recordings that are meant for long-term use, such as telephone systems, but revisions can also be made to ensure customer satisfaction when recording commercials or work that will not need revision in the future.
The request for changes or revisions is inevitable when you are working with organizations for long periods of time, particularly if you have recorded their telephone system.
Clients of yours may return to you months after the original recording and need an extension changed, a new greeting, an employees name added to the list, or updated on-hold messaging. After all, you are the voice of their company and they need you (and your signature voice) to grow with the company.
Some talent do revisions as value-added services while others charge for each subsequent revision. It would be interesting to know your philosophy on this.
Do you charge for revisions or provide bonus revisions for loyal customers?
