With Royalty Share Plus, ACX Makes Hybrid Stipends Official

Hey there!

Everything old is new again, right? I’ve been teaching you, in the ACX Masterclass and in VO2GoGo, that you can negotiate a per-finished-hour stipend with your rights holder, in addition to your official royalty share deal.

That separate “hybrid stipend” (something I’ve been calling it since I created it in 2011 and has become an industry term) always had to be negotiated separately, outside ACX, and wasn’t protected by your ACX producer/rights holder contract.

That all ends today, and a beautiful new option is available to you, officially, on ACX.

Hope this helps!

  1. Hi David. Yes…this is great news. IMO – ‘twould be great if all narration contracts
    were union-based.

  2. I am SO excited about this new development. I was working with an author on putting together a stipend hybrid and just like magic ACX provides it. As soon as I let her know what they are offering, she snagged it up and sent me the contract! Whoo-hoo! What a gift, indeed!

    As always, thank you for your guidance, David, as we traverse our audio book journeys.

  3. Sounds great! I changed my ACX profile accordingly. Thanks for the video David.
