Cover Letter

Posted by Cameron T. Brown

Greetings Client,

What can be done for you?

Why come to me to complete your Multimedia projects?

Here it is...

I can fully read your instructions, ideas, and suggestions so as to fully understand your needs and expectations. I can also take a look at example video links that you provided. I can then craft an original plan specifically for you and you and your particular project. This means a customized service tailored just for you.

I look for good clients who have great projects. I am especially interested in working with clients who have detailed procedures and the efficient planning. I respect that because most clients are very vague in what they want and also because I try to be detailed and professional when dealing with all my clients. I love to work for people who have the specifics of your own project figured out so that I can...

1) Immediately know what is expected of me.
2) Spend less time trying to interpret their needs.
3) Deliver fast and before the deadline.
4) Be sure to deliver an item that suits their needs.

I feel confident that I can beat your deadlines, because I have recently been setting my own deadlines within 24-48 hrs and still I have been able to deliver complete powerpoint screencast videos. Therefore, I feel that it won't be a challenge to suit your needs.

If you need a few references from past buyers about my speed in delivering presentation videos, I might even be able to get you the contact info from previous buyers who were satisfied with both the quality and speed of my work and you can ask them yourself.

My only appeal to you is that you take a look at my profile at oDesk, Elance, and also see my portfolio. That's it...

So, see the samples, past work experience, feedbacks, ratings, test scores, and whatever else you feel the need to examine in order to decide whether or not I am worthy of the job.

Check out my Resume PowerPoint

And also please see this link to a list of Portfolio Demos

If you want to contact me so that I can provide you with more info, then feel free to drop me a message:

YM ID: bcam360
Skype ID: cameron.torrell.brown

What it all boils down to is that this looks like a good project for me, and you need a person who really does care about doing the job fast (and I want to do this job to your satisfaction, because I want your repeat business in the near future).

I hope that this is enough to place me within your considerations and that everything else can be worked out from there. Thanks for your time. If for some reason you don't choose me for your project right now (but I really hope you will), please know that I am available at any time to complete other projects as well - both video related and other multimedia.

Again, thank you for your time and attention. I will look forward to working with you soon!
