Really depends on who and what usage. What constitutes an internet commercial may be a grey area depending on what exactly you’re doing.

You should be able to get a professional VO artist for $400-600 pretty comfortably, but I couldn’t say for certain without knowing what the project and usage is.

Just for a YouTube video with ads, but I'm putting a lot of work into it with music and all. Trying to do a really good parody of "Life After People". I'm gonna run a casting call on NowCasting at $250 just to see if I can find a diamond in the rough. Otherwise I might just have to use my own voice. I don't have that baritone voice, but because it's a comedy Mockumentary it might still "work". I can add 1 semi tone of pitch shift without it sounding too processed. I'll get your opinions when I post a little of it.

A comedy mockumentary? Have you considered a Ron Howard/Arrested Development style read instead of baritone?

Wouldn't fit with Life After People. They used a deep done, serious voice and a British voice for other episodes.

I use http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/casting-call/ for short stuff, it's free to post and you can advertise for credit only. If your advert is something that looks exciting you can get quite a few auditions to choose from just for one role.

For longer stuff I'd hire a local working actor for a day at their hourly rate to act into a microphone for me.
