no job too small?

I saw a voice over web site the other day that I was directed to from a Google Alert email.

The sentence I saw on one of the pages gave me pause: “My rates are reasonable and no job is too small.”

Reasonable rates is a great throw away phrase that I have no problem with; one wants to entice the visitor to believe one’s voice over rates will not bust a prospect’s budget. It infers cheaper without saying cheaper and leaves room to negotiate. That’s fair.

The part that gave me pause (and not in a good or bad way) was “no job is too small.” It immediately made me think “when IS a job too small?”

It’s such a subjective measurement. So let’s take a collective voiceover temperature: using whatever formula or gut instinct or whatever, how do YOU define when a voiceover job is too small? Or is it true that “no job is too small?”

What say you?

  1. oh, no job is too small…as long as the FEE is the right size.

  2. Peter, I completely agree with Rowell. In fact, earlier this month I had a session that consisted entirely of 1 word, 3 letters, 1 syllable, 1 take. Covered a good number of holiday gifts with the session fee from that one.

  3. Oh I’m sure it DID, Mr Turkel and I will blame the winter storm for the delayed arrival of MY holiday gift from you! 😉

    And Rowell is ALWAYS right!

    Best always,

  4. I don’t mind hopping in the booth for a few tags! 🙂

    (I do scrunch up my nose at things like “The script is just a few pages long; you can get it done in about 10 minutes. Please send us your rates. We can pay up to $45.”)

  5. Amy I think its polite that you only scrunch your nose.

    Best always,
    – Peter
