Okay, I can work with clients who are on a restricted budget but this was the funniest response I have ever received;

"you got a great voice but i don't have a great budget.........your prices are just too high for me..i will have to go with the amateurs that charge $1.50 to $35.00 for a voice over....thanks anyway...sorry for bothering you..."

Can you believe that? $1.50? I told him I would do the voiceover if I could just slap him up instead. That's worth more than $1.50. I appreciate the honesty but please! :) This is a new record for me!

I agree with Mike. It never fails, it seems every client I get these days always wants to negotiate a lower rate. I think I will take a page from Ronald Reagan, "Just say no!" : )

Well said, Mike! I always try to give some clients the same sermon in a polite manner. Some get it and some don't.

Wow, people are making a buck fifty? Guess I can finally raise my rates! Send them my way.

I think the market price for a slap is even higher then $1.50...ummm...Not that I would know about such things.

That is too funny, Dennis! It's these types of clients that are too ignorant to realize that quality can make THEM more money! :)

Terry...Yeah, tell Wilbur you'll cut the string between those two Campbell's soup cans if he doesn't get with the program! Regards, Dennis

Gee Terry, you didn't take the job? With that kind of money you could retire in 400 years.
