    Question Are you hungry?

    It all depends on your situation..... Are you hungry?
    SELL IT CHEAP!

    I was out of work, and needed to pay the bills so I sold a Jingle for $50.00 one time....

    I'd normally charge $200 to $500 for a full song including all rights to future renditions.

    How long is the song?

    In Thailand, advertisement jingles usually cost about US$800-1000 for the whole song (I think.)

    Standard rates for a commercial/pop song on an album is:

    Lyrics: 5000 baht = us$120
    Melody: 5000 baht = us$120
    Arrangement: 10000baht = us$240
    Production fees = 10000-20000 baht = us$200-400 (not sure)
