What should I write in the proposal field?
Writing a Persuasive Proposal
At a minimum your Proposal should greet a client (by name if a Contact has been provided in the About section of the job), thank them for the opportunity to audition and provide a basic introduction of yourself, your experience and your services.
Seeing a Sample Proposal for Online Audition
Here's what a proposal should look like:
Hello (Client Name),
Thank you for reviewing my audition submission. I've had over X years of experience recording (type of recording). Some of my past (type of recording) clients include Company 1, Company 2 and Company 3.
I'd be interested in working with you on your project because (cite specific reason) and I can have your recording done in less than 24 hours.

PS. If you don't feel I'm right for this project but may be right for future projects you can add me to your Favorites and reach out to me later!
Asking Questions and Setting Limits
Your Proposal is also a good place to ask questions about the job. A few well-placed questions about the project can speak volumes to your engagement and professionalism and help guide the conversation should the client reach out to you. Similarly, if the job description is not especially clear, your proposal is a good place to set limits by detailing exactly how much work (how many retakes or full reads, how much post-production) your bid represents.
