10 Things a Voice Talent Should Never Do to You

  1. Share your original script with any third party without your express permission (other than recording engineers who are working on the project).
  2. Share their recording of your original material without your express permission.
  3. Share their recording prior to air or distribution.
  4. Knowingly voice a TV commercial for a product in the same category as another commercial they had voiced for the same market and during the same air dates. (This is called product exclusivity, and only applies if their voice is recognizable. There is no exclusivity in radio commercials without a written agreement and additional compensation.
  5. Negotiate terms or rates directly instead of through their agent .
  6. Malign the script or the product.
  7. Schedule another recording session at the same time they have committed to your recording session, regardless of the compensation. (But if another offer comes in, they can certainly ask if you’re able to reschedule.)
  8. Arrive at the session without preparing the script you’ve provided.
  9. Refuse to record updates or changes, provided normal revisions rates are offered.
  10. Be late.
