Before you get started with your proposal, you’ll want to understand what a business proposal is (there’s a lot of confusion around this), and how to best structure a persuasive business proposal.
If you have a proposal for a new business idea, you want to package it in a way that is impressive and sells. Luckily, you do not need fancy design software to create that proposal.
Relate to Your New Client by Describing Their Situation. Describe the current situation or problem that your prospective client is facing. If, for example, your new client is a company looking for a better-designed website to raise conversion rates, you need to start your proposal by identifying what challenges they’re facing.
Because proposals are so time intensive, it’s best to avoid starting from scratch. Most people start with a proposal template of that’s similar to what they need, then customize it for their specific situation. Templates will only get you so far. For additional time savings, and faster turnaround time on your proposals, software and more focused tools goes a long way and helps close deals faster.
