While I know the majority of you are likely working in the feature film/TV category, I'm working in the web video & internal video category.
For example, I create small web videos for companies (example) and also internal corporate videos for agencies.
I am looking for some help to word an introduction proposal in an email where I will introduce myself to companies and hope they respond, wanting a meeting and then outsourcing work.
I am appealing to two different target markets.
- Above & Below the line Advertising Agencies.
- Small to medium sized Production Companies.
I need some guidance with regards to making a memorable and intriguing introduction that doesn't appear to be spam or a mass email. I am thinking along the lines of:
Hello <contacts name> (I'll make each intro uniquely out to the person/creative director/producer etc)
My name is Yash & I'm a so and so who does this and that. Here is an example below:
If you would like to get in touch, please don't hesitate to contact me on <details> and I'll be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs.
So that's the VERY basic initial draft template idea. Should I add in rates? For example my day rate for filming or my rate to for 1 minute of 2D animation? Should I mention that film is my passion or does that tend to become a hard sell, I really don't want to make it a hard sell.
All thoughts and insights valued. Thanks.
