Have you ever had to work on a retainer?
If you are into radio imaging, telephone voice over work, voice over for the web or providing voice overs for anything else that needs constant updating, you are probably familiar with working on a retainer.
Although it may be old hat to you, there are people starting out in the business of voice over who are new to the concept and need some guidance -- that's where you wonderful pros come in :)
Share your experiences with retainers and add your voice to the conversation!
The word "retainer" comes up every so often whenever a client wants to retain your voice for a period of time.
From my understanding, retainers are usually monthly arrangements wherein you work for a client for a flat fee for a previously agreed upon number of voice overs or audio packages.
How should people who are faced with retainers for the first time quote for the work? What factors come into play?
Please share your thoughts. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
