You might have discovered your new Templates section in your Account & Settings at Voices.com. We've come up with a few ideas that will help you use your new templates to your advantage!
Remember when you could save proposals in your account? Well, we've taken that concept to the next level and have given you the tools to create audition templates... templates that are conveniently available for use on your audition submission page!
Once you have created and saved your new templates, you will be able to select from them using a pull down menu. When you've picked the template most appropriate for a given job, it will auto-populate (auto-fill) your reply field with the template you selected.
You can still personalize these templates for clients... it's just easier to access and use them!
If you really want to use the templates to your advantage, have at least 3 templates created, each of a different nature, and if you wish, length.
For example, you could have a template that focuses on audiobook and narration projects. You could also have a separate template for broadcast projects. Telephone jobs would be another category that should have a ready-to-go template associated with it.
For instance, one of your templates might look like this:
Dear (Contact name),
Thank you for the opportunity to present my custom demo to you and quote for your commercial project.
Your job is of particular interest to me because...
I have extensive experience recording for radio and television commercials and I confidently feel that my voice meets the requirements listed in your project details.
Looking forward to working with you.
Jimmy Voice Talent
Your hard returns and line breaks will appear in your proposals just as they do in your templates. Also, your contact information will be attached for you, saving you from having to include it in your templates.
Create templates by logging in to your Voices.com account.
