What should I write in the proposal field?

WRITING A PERSUASIVE PROPOSAL

At minimum your Proposal should greet the 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.

Here is a sample proposal that you can use and personalize:

 
Hi [client name],

My name is [your name], and I would love to work with you. [Give a brief overview of your experience and/or any past relevant projects here].

Turn-Around Time: I can deliver high quality, finished files within [x hours/days]. If needed, I can also provide same-day or overnight delivery. 

Live Sessions: [If you are able to provide live directed sessions via SourceConnect, Skype, ipDTL, ISDN, or phone patch, etc. please indicate here]

Equipment: My equipment includes [microphone, software, etc.]

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me directly via the ‘Messages’ button in my audition. I hope you like what you hear and will consider working with me.

[Salutation], 

[Your name]

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.
