What do you think others will write?
How about if you start with something basic like “Hi” followed by 1-2 sentence explanation why you think you’re the perfect fit for this job. For example, if you’ve done similar work before and you have samples then you can drop YouTube or Vimeo links in your offer.
This wasn’t the requirement. If you wish to put it in then you might wish to explain why it matters or if you have a subscription to some kind of background music service provider then you can mention it. If you don’t know much about the content then give customer some options.
Like what kind of effects? Do you have samples?
Others can probably add more tips, but if I was a customer then here’s what I would be looking for
- I want someone who has done similar work before, especially if there’s a deadline. I don’t need a rookie that forces me to go through 10 revisions. You have 4 years of experience, so prove that you’re not a rookie
- Inspire your customer. Show them the variety of ways you can deliver the service.
- Even though you don’t have feedback on this platform, I’m sure you have received feedback before. As a video editor you might have your own YouTube channel. It’s OK to post YT links in your offer showcasing your best work.
