Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $25/1hr for recording and mixing. We will discuss an estimate for how long I should work on mixing the project. Depending on the project, the hours mixing will vary. If it's simple it could be 1 to 2 hours. If more complicated it could take 3 to 5 hours. Once I've reached the estimated point I will notify the client and we can discuss what to do from there. If the client is happy with it, then the work is complete. On the other-hand, if the client thinks it needs more work, then we can discuss what the pricing will be from there on. You're business is important and I will work with you regarding pricing.
