Lyric Video By Hired Company:

If you don’t want to spend time on learning how to produce lyric videos, the easiest way to get your lyric video done will be hiring a professional lyric video maker for a work on your song. You just have to work with right people. How to choose good and reliable lyric video company? I can give you an advice of course.

First of all, check out lyric video producer’s portfolio and already made lyric videos. If you like what you see – that means that you are on the right way. Then make a closer contact, ask some questions about production and time frame, ask for some ideas inspired by your music. If everything is going good, discuss project details and ask for estimated timeframe. If you want to protect yourself and to get your lyric video on time, I strongly advise asking for a contract. As this is not a must, reliable and professional lyric video studio will always agree with this and suggest you make a signed agreement.

About prices, it all depends on a project, but typical price for lyric videos lies within the range of 300$ – 600$. Also, there is such thing like prepayment. Normally, it should be 50% before the start and 50% when full video is approved and ready for sending to you (without watermarks). That’s a good scheme for producers because they are protected of non-payment and free work. And for buyers – as you can pay full amount only when you know that your video is completely ready. If studio asks for a full prepayment – that’s an alarm bell. All the fairy tales about “we need a full sum as we are professionals…” are bullshit! 99 percent of orders with prepayment end up good, there is no need in full prepayment before.
