Internetjock Phone Listen In Session Policy
If you’d like to do a Listen In Session with one of our Internetjocks, you can! If you have any questions about this policy please ask for clarification in order to prevent misunderstandings. A Listen In Session is the standard cost of the copy as written based on the current rate card, plus the cost of the Listen In Session (copy rate card cost + Listen In Session cost). Character voices, kids, and translations are additional. Call us for rates.
What is the Listen In cost?
Listen in Sessions costs are $50.00 for up to 30 minutes of Listen In time per project. The Internetjock will be glad to read each project up to 3 times. If you exceed 3 takes per session you will be billed by the minute for each additional take. Additional Listen In time is $50.00 Per 30 minutes, billed in 1/2 hour increments.
A 30 second commercial voice over is the rate card cost, plus Listen In cost. Same for narrations (over 60 seconds); rate card + Listen in Session cost. If you have more than one spot (commercials only) per session, the additional cost is 50% of the normal listen in rate, amking it $25.00 for each additional spot.

If there are changes after the session is over additional charges will apply.
